News Birthday of Islam’s Founder: President pays respects to life of Prophet Muhammad

Today is the birth anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad, who showed to the world that benevolence and honesty are the two characteristics that needed for a person to be trusted by everyone, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa said. Issuing a message he said: “The profound religion people believe in and accepts has become the basis of thinking and behaviour of mankind in any society. 

The life and philosophy of Prophet Muhammad depicts the rationale of the Islamic belief that God reveals himself to people who are sincere and that the God exalts such persons to suitable and higher places. I feel that the best way to pay special respect to Prophet Muhammad, who is highly revered by the Islam devotees in Sri Lanka and the world over, is to strive to further disseminate his vision to strengthen coexistence among the people. 

It is most timely than ever before to apply the humanitarian philosophy of Prophet Muhammad maintained throughout his life, towards social welfare today. May the lives of Islam devotees around the world, including in Sri Lanka, who revere the exemplary life of the Prophet, be enlightened and prosperous!”
