In a statement marking the celebration, Dr. Moghalu noted that the occasion is another opportunity to reflect on the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) who left a lasting legacy of peace, love, charity and peaceful coexistence; urging Muslims not to spend the occasion on festivities alone, but to spend the moment in deep reflection and introspection on the current realities before the country.

“I wish all Muslims a happy and memorable celebration of the birth of the great Prophet, whose teachings particularly on peaceful living, tolerance, sobriety, generosity, sacrifice and honesty, will continue to resonate.
