Wearing a bridegroom look, Muslim world is reverberating with naat (eulogy) to celebrate Eid Milad ul Nabi (PBUH), the birth anniversary of Hazrat Mohammad, last Prophet and apostle of God.
Shia Muslims across the world also start celebrating the Muslim Unity Week following the directive of late Imam Khomeini.
â€œHoly Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) is the great role model for whole of the humanity, let alone Muslims,â€ said Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri, secretary general of Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen in his message on the Eid Milad ul Nabi (PBUH).
He urged Muslims to join hands against the takfiri nasbi terrorism following the footprints of Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH). He said that nobody should be allowed to tarnish the true and bright image of Islam.
â€œMuslims have to bury the Shia-Sunni differences and make society a paradise for all Muslims,â€ Allama Sajid Naqvi, head of Shia Ulema Council said.
He said that solution to the problems of Islamic world lie in the Shia-Sunni unity and they are capable to defeat enemies and sort out all problems through their united course of action.
It is relevant to add here that Imam Khomeini appealed to all Muslims to observe Muslim Unity Week from Rabbi al Awwal 12 to 17. Since Sunni Muslims celebrate the anniversary on 12th and Shia Muslims celebrate the Eid Milad ul Nabi (PBUH) on 17th hence came the appeal from founder of Islamic Revolution in Iran and religious authority of the Shia Muslims worldwide, Imam Khomeini.
Roads, streets, lanes and buildings are decorated like bridegrooms and congregations and rallies are staged to celebrate the anniversary every year. Muslim scholars speak at the congregations and naat khwan and madahan-e-ahl-e-bait (AS) recite naat to eulogize the sacred personality of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH).
