We have great pleasure to announce the commencement of series of speeches by the renowned Orator and translator of Holy Quran, Vanidas Elayavoor from the September 23rd 2005 onwards. The event is organized by the Gulf Chapter of the Calicut-based organization, Sargatheeram Publications and will be held at Jamiyyathul Islah, Dubai, in which Mr. Elayavoor will be speaking on the topic, “Islam of Tolerance”. There shall also be the release of 12 books by the author, including the widely acclaimed “The Misunderstood Jihad”.
The guests will include M.A. Yusuf Ali, P.V. Abdul Wahhab M.P., B.R. Shetty along with other prominent personalities from the country. We cordially invite you and your family to attend this noble function.
Mr Elayavoor, who hails from the Kannur district of Kerala, has more than thirty books to his credit, a major part of which is based on Islamic teachings and life of Holy Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). His work, “In humility before the Qur’an” was released in several editions and “Quran A simple rendering” was well-received by all sections. He is also the winner of Teacher’s Award awarded by the president of India. A well-versed linguist, Mr. Elayavoor is in the rank of the distinguished orators in Kerala.
Under the present circumstances when Islam is facing widespread misconceptions, it is indeed a matter of great hope that a non-Muslim renders his voice and time in an effort to defend Islam against such accusations.
He will also speak at the Abu Dhabi Indian Islamic Center the 29th Sep (7pm) and at the Indian Association Sharjah on the 30th Sep 2005 (7pm).
The program will be covered on Jaihoon.com, a non-commercial portal run by a Keralite youth in Sharjah.
