KABUL (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Sunday said the ulema of Afghanistan and other Islamic countries were united in stance against rebellions and creating anarchy in Islamic countries.

Addressing a gathering celebrating Milad-un-Nabi or the birthday of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) at the Presidential Palace, Ghani said, “Celebrating this day is renewing the agreement of life method we inherited from the leader of humanity.”

He said following the way of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was following higher goals of Islam that were welcomed by nations.

“One of the goals of the holy Quran sent us from God through Prophet Mohammad (SAW) is leaving enmity and ensuring peace and brotherhood. Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) came in order to put an end to hatred, enmity, killing each other, oppression, cruelty and bloodshed and replace them with love, solidarity, cooperation, sacrifice, forgiveness and other good things and morals,” he said.

However, he said the Islamic world was celebrating Milad-un-Nabi at a time when the Muslims were suffering from great challenges.

Prominent Afghanistan Ulema, the Haramain Al Sharifain, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia and other Islamic countries were united in their stances against rebellions, anarchy and Takfiris.

“The acts of insurgents only lead to the killing of Muslims and destruction of Islamic counties,” he said.

In other part of his speech, the president while talking about women, said that Hazrat BiBi Khudaija, the wife of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), had played a basic role in supporting his husband to convey the message of God to people.

The developments and changes made by Afghan Muslim women today could not be denied, he said.

He said the Afghan women needed further support and those preventing them from making progress were against the development of Islamic civilization and their country.

Ghani also urged ulema role in different areas particularly in education. The increased number of mosques, madaris and ulema in urban and rural areas of Afghanista, he said, “This process would continue, those who say Islam is at risk should know that Islam is not at risk, but their rebellion and crimes against Muslims are at risk.”

Second vice-president Mohammad Sarwar Danish, who attended the ceremony, congratulated the meeting on celebrating Milad-un-Nabi and provided information about moral and specific characteristics of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) to the meeting.

He presented information about Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) from the point of view of non-Muslim scholars and said Afghanistan Muslims including Sunni and Shia and other groups of the community were brothers and they respected the rights of each other.

He said all the Afghans were united against terrorism, particularly against the Taliban, Al Qaeda and Daesh.

President Ghani at the end of the ceremony conferred Malalai Medal on Malak Mahera, principal of Gheyasia High Sciences Center in western Herat province for her services in enlightening the minds of girls with Islamic education.
