Speaking on the occasion Ms. Sitara Ayaz said that Islam is the biggest ambassador of rights of female. She urged that we talk a lot about Seerat Tayyaba , a number of conferences are too held on this topic but we lack implementation factor in this regard. The Holy Quran is the source of information for all of us irrespective of times and ages and all our problems will be resolved by following the teachings of Holy Quran and Holy Prophet (SWA).  Muslim masses should stop looking here and there and towards their own rulers for the solution of their problems and rely instead on their own political power and spiritual strength as a moral community.

 Dr. Zia-ul-Haq said that we can study the life of the Holy Prophet in three stages and each stage has its own challenges and parameters. But in all that the role of the Holy Prophet is exemplary for all of us. He shed light on the economic, social, religious and political life of the Holy Prophet. Later on Dr. Ikraam-ul Haq in his talk stressed upon converting our differences into diversity if we want to excel as a whole. He said that God sent prophets to conquer the hearts of the people. He also talk about the role of the Paigham-e- Pakistan to spread the message of Islam of peace and conciliation. He hoped that female students would be the best ambassadors of the peace and conciliation in their societies, as well as to serve their communities and to employ their education, training and experience in the service of their people and their communities, as the Prophet (SAW) said: “The best people are those who are most beneficial to other people”
