ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvim, on the occasion of Eid Miladun Nabi, urged the nation to follow in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) as the country marked the day with traditional zeal and fervour.
In his message on the occasion of Eid un Miladun Nabi, the President has asserted that Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAWW) laid the foundation of Riyasat-e-Madina, which rose before the world as an example in terms of humanity, justice, and rule of law.
“Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAWW) united humans for the oneness of Allah and that it is his characteristics that made people who were each other’s worst enemies, each other’s well-wishers,” he said. The president further said that the Holy Prophet (SAWW) established such a welfare state where the rich and poor enjoyed equal rights.
While lauding the efforts of the present government in turning Pakistan into a model welfare state on the patterns of Riasat-e-Madina, he hoped that all resources will be utilised for this purpose.
