Islamabad - Asif Ali Zardari, co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and former president, has greeted the nation on the auspicious occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) and prayed for Muslims to follow the teachings of love and humility preached by Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

“Today we rejoice on the birthday of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and also pray for inner light to imbibe the spirit of his message and follow his teachings,” said the former president in a message on the occasion.

“The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) brought a message of peace, love, compassion and humility. He preached tolerance and understanding exhorting also to fight injustice and oppression. His message transcends boundaries of geography, ages and climes and homage is paid to him everywhere and at all times. The need for imbibing these virtues universally is as great today as it was at any time before. Today we bow our heads in reverence to imbibe the true spirit of his teachings to illumine our path and transform our lives. On this auspicious day I send my greetings to everyone, particularly to the Muslims throughout the world and in Pakistan. 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,” Zardari said.
