GRAND INTERNATIONAL ESSAY CONTEST with prizes worth Indian Rs. One Million (US$ 20,000)


No matter who you are, no matter what your religious, ideological and political beliefs are, you must know this Man. Prophet Muhammed (S) was an epitome of truth, purity and righteousness. He was the most remarkable man that ever set foot on Earth. He preached a religion, founded a State, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numerous social and political reforms, and established a dynamic society where fairness and integrity were the norms. 

A simple incident provides a glimpse to his personality: 

Once some of his companions took away the chicks of a bird from their nest to stroke them. When the mother bird found her chicks missing from the nest, it began to fly around screeching. When informed of the matter, Prophet Muhammed (S) the messenger of God disapproved the act of his companions and ordered the chicks to be put back in the nest. 

Here we present all non-Muslims a golden opportunity to know the greatest benefactor of mankind and how his revolutionary teachings can change our lives in order to make this world a better place to live in. All you need to do is submit an essay on the topic, ‘Let us know this man’, keeping in mind the following rules. Exciting cash prizes are up for grabs.
