President urges nation to follow teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
The President, in his message, said the birth of Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the promise of healing for humanity. He said our Prophet (PBUH) eliminated slavery and brought justice in society.
“His prophet hood made visible the difference between good and evil, the darkness of ignorance was removed, the customs of non-believers were abolished, the name of the lone Creator of the universe was magnified and hearts of the humanity shone with the purity of the oneness of Allah. The slaves who were crushed under the weight of oppression and cruelty received the blessing of freedom and the era of justice and equity was ushered in.”
