Professor Dr. Shahid Qureshi enlightened the audience with his personal discovery of self, God, and the entrepreneurial mindset concept while interacting with academic people around the world. Narrating the behavior of Prophet صلی الله علیه وسلم, he created the link with the contemporary challenges being faced by Academia and the public. Professor Qureshi specifically mentioned the communication, negotiation, planning, strategy, benevolence, excellence, leadership, parenting, and teaching styles of Prophet صلی الله علیه وسلم and their relevance to the entrepreneurial mindset. These concepts were beautifully elaborated by reciting selected poetry from the great scholar Dr. Allama Muhammad Iqbal where the poet guided the Muslim Umma to follow the teaching of the Quran and Sunna for the economic and spiritual well-being of Umma.
