The 29th International Mawlid-un-Nabi Conference (S.A.W.), the biggest Milad Conference in the Islamic world, was held on the intervening nights of the 11th and 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal at Minar-e-Pakistan Lahore under the banner of Minhaj-ul-Quran International. Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri delivered his keynote address. The proceedings of the Conference were broadcast live around the world by ARY and C92.tv.
The hundreds of thousands of people including women and children braved the severe cold weather and remained in rapturous attendance. The Conference made history as the devotees demonstrated their love of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) in such inclement weather and reminded the world that love of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) is the most precious asset for the Muslims.
