Rising up early for the pre-dawn meal; celebrating togetherness– a month of blessing is here. Ramadan is one of the months where all Muslims gather to enjoy this holy month with full fervor. This is the time when spirit of fasting is at high peak, but the patience is no where near, everyone seems to be absorbed in their own problems; related to work or personal. There is commotion everywhere and in these times when no one has time even for oneself, how could it be possible to spend holy month in accordance to its true spirit? Dr. Aamir Liaquat Husain, a renowned scholar and host, also a pioneer of celebrating religious celebrations with full fervor believes the true essence of Ramadan is to have feeling of sacrifice towards others, to have tolerance, and most importantly to please Almighty Allah; the simplest way is to spread happiness among HIS creatures.
Every year, Geo Network telecast different religious programs during Ramadan like Ramadan Assalam or Ramadan Rahman though this time, it is Pehchaan Ramadan. Why this theme? Dr. Liaquat explains that Pehchaan means ‘identity’ which is significant only when you comprehend the basic teachings of this holy month; the traits include patience, empathy and gratitude towards Allah. Moreover, he enlightens the purpose of our being for which we are sent down on Earth, whereas in the same month, Pakistan has been established which also became our identity, thus a sole reason for this particular idea. Furthermore, in replying to uniqueness of this theme, Dr. Liaquat reveals that first time ever in the history of any live transmission, around 500 audience members will be present in this show, and will not only as mere guests, but also break their fast with Dr. Liaquat as there will be arrangements for iftaar on the set.
Ramadan is a time to share with less privileged, as well as restrain from worldly pleasures for the love of Allah, as well as come together to rejoice the beauty of holy month. Meanwhile Dr. Liaquat also divulges that through this program, they will also help many needy families each day. Moreover, each segment would be presented in different style where he will disseminate religious knowledge with viewers. Similarly, religious scholars from every sect will gather around the iftaar table to reflect the concept of ‘peace loving nation’.
However, this is only the beginning of the transmission which actually holds the special message of unity, harmony and care for others. His motto is to ‘live and let live’ and also ‘live and give life to others’.
