IMCG (PG) F-7/2 Islamabad organised a lecture on "The Reality of the Soul" today. Ustada Alia Malik (Alima at Nur ul Ilm Islamabad) graced the occasion to speak on the subject. The lecture started with the recitation of Holy Quran by Dr. Ayesha Madni (Dept. Of Islamic Studies) and Naat-e-Rasool-e-Maqbool by Ayesha Ali ( 2nd year Pre Medical). The honourable speaker, Ms. Alia Malik, initiated the discourse by explaining to the audience about the reality of the soul and how it remains eternal even after the death of a person. She also signalled out two entities which mislead a man from the righteous path namely Satan and Nafs. She, then, centred her discussion upon the perils of Nafs-e-Ammarah. She explained the ways to control it in order to advance to Nafs ul Lawwama and subdue it also. Only then can a human being achieve Nafs-e-Mutmainna which helps us gain a pure heart, success in eternal life and, ultimately, Allah's approval. She stressed upon the need that we should not be deluded by the attractions of this temporary world as stated in Surah Takasur verse 1. She suggested that Muslims should attain piety by detaching themselves from worldly possessions and desires. Secondly, they should make charity a priority. Lastly, the believers should keep themselves busy in Allah's worship. Overall, Ms. Alia Malik's lecture proved to be a soul stirring experience for both the students and the faculty members.
