Promoting Religious Harmony: The Legacy of Azan Fakir in Assam


The teachings of Azan Fakir, also known as Azan Pir, continue to reverberate throughout Assamese culture, notably in the domain of religious peace. His zikir, a devotional song, emphasises the concept of oneness irrespective of religious affiliations. This emotion was recently exhibited during the Ijtema, a Muslim congregational conference, held in Rangia, Assam.


Interfaith Unity: A Testament to Social Cohesion

The Ijtema saw an unparalleled demonstration of religious solidarity, with followers of the Srimanta Sankardeva Sangha, an organization preaching the teachings of the Neo-Vaishnavite saint Srimanta Sankardeva, offering their support. Elderly devotees from the Sangha, including Hirendra Nath, Bipin Nath, and Jagdish Nath, attended the occasion, demonstrating the continuing tie of peace across diverse religions.


Championing Unity Amidst Diversity: Lessons for Modern Society

In the face of political and divisive forces, the solidarity demonstrated at the Ijtema recalls the everlasting teachings of Azan Fakir and Srimanta Sankardeva. It serves as a reminder that religious differences should not split but rather unify communities towards a shared goal of peace and growth. The reciprocal acts between the Sankardeva Sangha and the Muslim community demonstrate the combined endeavour towards developing social cohesion and understanding.



A Collaborative Endeavor: Fostering Mutual Respect and Cooperation


Moreover, the volunteer help offered by both Hindu and Muslim groups in the preparation of event locations shows a collaborative atmosphere built on mutual tolerance and collaboration. The gesture of giving property by Muslim landowners for the Sankardeva Sangha convention emphasises the common commitment to transcending religious borders for the greater welfare of society.

In essence, the confluence of disparate groups at events like the Ijtema and the reciprocal acts of support illustrates the lasting legacy of Azan Fakir and Srimanta Sankardeva in fostering religious tolerance and social solidarity in Assam. It is a monument to the notion that unity despite differences is not only feasible but also important for the success and prosperity of society.
