Success linked to Islam: The Holy Quran is the source of our spiritual and eternal success, said University of Sargodha VC Dr Akram Ch. He was addressing a ceremony of Khatm-e-Quran. The revelation of Holy Quran, and the preservation of its original text for more than 1,400 years, is a continuous miracle, added Dr Akram. The Holy Quran would illuminate the world in general and the Muslim society in particular, he added. “The holy book teaches and encourages us to proceed further for achieving our Islamic goals as per the ways determined by Almighty Allah and shown by Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) through his practical life.

The University of Sargodha is lucky with regard to its faculty and students’ love for the Holy Quran as there are 890 Huffaz out of 28,000 students. No tuition fee is charged from these Huffaz. No such example could be quoted for other varsities,” he added.

Prof Fazal-e-Haq said, “If we, the Muslim, attach ourselves with the Holy Quran, we will prove to be the most successful nation in the world.”
