SHAFAQNA – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has felicitated his Muslim counterparts on the birth anniversary of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), calling for strengthening unity among Muslims.
“Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is the manifestation of justice, trustworthiness, ethics, and divine grace, savior of mankind from darkness and misdirection, and messenger of peace, friendship, and brotherhood,” Larijani said in his message on Saturday.
He said the worst and most evil thing for the Islamic community to do today is “stirring differences and strife among religious brothers, and the most necessary thing to do is inviting Muslims to unity and integrity against cruelty, arrogance” he added.
Larijani also wished honor and salvation for the Islamic ummah.
Sunni Muslims observe the Prophet Mohammed’s birthday on the 12th day of the Islamic calendar month of Rabi’ al-awwal, while Shia Muslims mark it on the 17th of this month. The six days between the two dates is called by Muslim states as the “Unity Week”.
