A SEMINAR organized on the teachings of Hazrat Sultan Bahu at GCU

The contemporary Urdu literature on Sufism should be taught to the youth by incorporating the translations of great Sufi saints’ works by eminent poets and scholars in their curriculum, said speakers while addressing a seminar on the teachings of Hazrat Sultan Bahu at the Government College University (GCU) Lahore.

The seminar, jointly organized by the university’s Majlis-e-Sufi Tabassum and Majlis Iqbal was also marked by a special appreciation to a book titled “Illhamat-e-Bahu” written by columnist Muhammad Mansoor Afaq. The book included poetic translations of the works and teachings of Hazrat Sultan Bahu.

Ata ul Haq Qasmi was the chief guest at the seminar which also attended by Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Hassan Amir Shah and a large number of Urdu poets, critics and writers.  “These contemporary literary works on Sufism such as of Mansoor Afaq are more relevant to the present day world, and could be better understood by the youth,” said former information secretary and poet, Shoiab-bin-Aziz. He called upon the academicians and government to incorporate the works of great Sufi saints and their translations in curriculum at all levels. Ata ul Haq Qasmi said Mansoor Afaq did not only preach, promote and write on Sufism but also practiced it and this spiritualism led him to the translate the works and teachings of the great Sufi saint. He said he was great admirer of the literary and poetic works of Mansoor Afaq.

Vice Chancellor Prof Hassan Shah, an eminent physicist, said “the objectives of science, arts and literature are same; we all are trying explore the reality.” He said that such seminars provided an excellent opportunity to their students to interact with the eminent poets and writers and learn from their experiences. He urged the students to study the contemporary Urdu literature on Sufism for their spiritual elevation.   

Prof Dr Iqbal Shahid, Dean Faculty of Languages, GCU said that the teachings of Sultan Bahu acted as bridge between the Sharia and Sufism.  Prof Dr Saadat Saeed, Nadeem Bhabha, Dr Jawaz Jafri and Dr Shafiq Khan and Dr Saima Irum also spoke on the occasion.
