DUBAI: Bollywood film maker-turned Islamic scholar Murcyleen Peerzada was one of 15 prominent personalities who were honoured in the 1st International Contribution to Dawah Awards recently held in Dubai.

The ceremony to acknowledge prominent Islamic scholars was a private award show held recently at the Jumeirah Emirates Tower hotel and sponsored by the creators of iMurshid, the world’s largest Islamic smart phone application.

This was the first of its kind award show in the world for those who have contributed towards spreading the peaceful and positive message of Islam through their speeches and creative projects.

Responding to The Gulf today via email, Murcyleen Peerzada commented on her award and said, “Well, Islam is a peaceful, positive and beautiful religion and I hope I can bring positivity in the world around me through its values. I want to contribute more towards spreading goodness and to take more effective initiatives towards the younger generation. That’s my priority and hope to deliver my best.”

Mufti Ismail Menk, renowned scholar, popular Islamic and motivational speaker introduced the 25-year-old speaker Murcyleen Peerzada and handed the award.

Murcyleen was the only female Islamic speaker to have been awarded at the event apart from Dr Farhat Hashmi who has been in the field of Islamic studies preaching for almost 40 years.

Peerzada who hogged headlines last year for her dramatic flight from being the famous Indian filmmaker and Yash Chopra’s protégée to turning into an Islamic speaker was awarded the “upcoming in the field of Dawah award.”

She was previously worked as an assistant director in Yash Raj Films, however she walked out of it later to pursue Islam and the field of Dawah. Murcyleen was the youngest awardee at the international event out of all the 15 categories.
