Muslims Mark Prophet's Birthday

By The Ghanaian Times

THE Iranian Ambassador to Gha-na, Mr Valiyollah Mohammadi has cal-led on Muslims to shun sectarianism and to use dialogue in addressing their differences.

He explained that this was the tool used by the Prophet Mohammed to unite his people during his time.

Mr Mohammadi was addressing the annual Unity Week seminar to comme-morate Prophet Moha-mmed's birthday in Accra.

The event was organized by the cultural consulate of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Ghana.

Mr Mohammadi explained that sectarianism under-mines the unity of Islam and therefore every Muslim should avoid it.

The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Sheik I.C. Quaye, advised Muslims to show love and desist from violet acts.

Unity in Islam could be achieved when there was love among Muslims, he stated.

The Head of De-partment of Religions at the Imam Khomeini Education and Research Institute, Dr. Moham-med Ali Shomali, said the birth of Prophet Mohammed was a blessing not only to Muslims but to mankind.

Dr. Shomali pointed out that 'a righteous person is always useful to his people and all humanity, and called on Muslims to emulate the prophet's life.
