Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in a message to his world counterparts felicitated them on the birth anniversary of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), and called for strengthening unity among Muslims.
“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 Ummah to do today is “stirring differences and strife among religious brothers and the most necessary good deed is inviting Muslims to unity and integrity against cruelty, arrogance and Zionism,” 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 month of Rabi’ al-awwal, while Shiite 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’.
