Geo Prepares The Best Set To Welcome Holy Ramazan
RAWALPINDI: All the charms and enjoyment of life are subject to peace and law and order. This is a blessing for which the citizens have been yearning and praying for its revival.
Against this background, Geo Network is taking the lead in launching “Aman Ramazan”, the biggest and most unique transmission on the auspicious occasion of Ramazanul Mubarik. Like previous years this year too the proceedings will be presented byfavourite Dr Amir Liaqat Hussain, on a set said to be the most beautiful set.
Taking cue from ‘Pehchan Ramzan’, the most phenomenal Ramazan programme last year and the element of newness and tradition admixtured in ‘Aman Ramazan,’ will be visible this year too and reaching the zenith.
The audience will find new ways to witness interesting and soul-stirring experiences which would redouble the ecstasy in the holy month of Ramazan. A specialty of the transmission is that Ulema-e-karam, hymn and naat-singers, in company with celebrities who will give a live performance, both at Sehr and Iftar. A big gathering of people will also participate that will include small fast-observing children and the old who will be encouraged. These audience will be served on Iftar aab-e-zam zam and Ujwa dates along with other delicacies on a daily basis. This (zam-zam) water and Ujwa dates have been imported directly from Madinah Mumawwara.
Before the Iftar, the prayers of Amir Liaqat Hussain will mesmerize the audience. The Sehr will begin with the captivating recitation of the holy Quran by Qari Ibrahim Kasi to be followed by the explanation by Amir Liaqat Hussain. Celebrated naat khawan of Geo team including Alhaj Imran Sheikh Attari, Hafiz Ahmad Raza Qadri, Mohammad Rehan Qadri, Hafiz Tahir Qadri, and Mohammad Reehan Qureshi will offer their tributes to the holiest of the human beings. Dr Imran will narrate small interesting anecdotes of birds and animals mentioned in the holy Quran and other revealed books.
It has always been an endeavour of Dr Amir Liaqat Hussain to associate as many underprivileged persons in the blessings of the holy month as possible, and also to rub some balm on their wounds. All those downtrodden segments of society and victims of tragic incidents and afflictions get his serious attention. Representatives of such segments of society are invited to these holy gatherings. Every effort is made to help the needy through the Mahmooda Sultana Foundation and join them in the joys of Eid. Mahmooda Sultana Foundation will pay cash money and ration will be distributed.
The other facet of the programme will be “Aman Ramzan Painting Competition.” This will provide the artists to bring forth the hidden talent to portray ‘peace’ in their own vision. Prizes will be presented to best painters. Whereas in both the morning and evening transmissions ‘Azkar-e-al-Sabha wal Masa’will provide an opportunity to pray to Allah Almighty devotedly.
With special Iftar dishes Dr Amir will present the cooking show Ishaia and the audience will be entertained with a new dish every day. Simultaneously Dr Liaqat will provide encyclopedic information and tell the tales of Muslim luminaries who rendered meritorious services to Muslims and Islam.
The scholars of different schools of thought will answer the questions of viewers in a special edition of ‘Alim aur Alam.’ This year too keeping up the tradition Dr Amir Liaqat Hussain will render a blood-warming naat specially prepared for third year.
Programmes of Mufti Muneebur Rehman, Dr Farhat Hashmi, Haji Hanif Tayyab, Hafiz Ibtisam Elahi, and Prof Naheed Ibrar and talks by many celebrities like Mian Mahmood Ahmad and Maulana Ziaul Haq Naqshbandi will be part of the special transmissions.
