Morocco: HM the King Congratulates Heads of Islamic States On Eid Al Mawlid Al-Nabaoui Asharif

Rabat  — On the occasion of the advent of Eid Al Mawlid Al-Nabaoui Asharif (birth of the prophet), HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, sent to heads of brotherly Islamic states congratulatory messages in which the sovereign wished them health and happiness, and further progress and prosperity for their peoples.

In these messages, HM the King underlines that the commemoration by the Islamic Umma of this joyful occasion prompts all Muslims to be inspired by the life and behavior of prophet Mohamed (PBUH).

"This event is a call for reinforcing the values and lofty ideals advocated in our tolerant religion and for giving concrete substance to the principles of brotherhood, justice and equality. It urges moderation, tolerance, openness on the other and solidarity-based action, in piety and devotion," the royal messages said.

HM the King prayed God "to guide our steps, leaders and peoples, so that we could reinforce the ties of fraternity, solidarity and cooperation among the countries of our Umma and achieve the ambitions of our peoples who aspire to further communion, understanding, and comprehensive development in dignity and stability."
