Islamabad, December 11, 2016: “The auspicious occasion of Eid Milad today is an occasion to reflect on the teachings of tolerance and understanding that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) preached and which transcended boundaries of geography, ages and climes”.
This has been stated by the former President Mr Asif Ali Zardari in his message while greeting the nation on the eve of the anniversary falling on Monday December 12.
The need for imbibing the virtues of tolerance and understanding universally is as great today as it was at any time before as the values of tolerance and plurality seem to be receding not only in Pakistan but globally, he said.
“Today we rejoice in the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and also pray for wisdom to imbibe the true spirit of his message of love and humility and follow his teachings”. Indeed homage is paid to him everywhere and at all time.
“On this auspicious day as I felicitate everyone I also pray that Allah give us the wisdom and guide us on the path to dedicate ourselves to the teachings of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and rekindle our souls with the light lit by him”.
