Fri, Dec 1, 2017, 10:59 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 01, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in a message of greetings on the occasion of Islamic festival Meelad-un-Nabi, said Sri Lanka looks to emerge as one nation with peace and harmony among communities.

"In commemorating this occasion with the deepest bonds of fellowship and co-existence, it is timely for us to reflect on the values he taught and shared with the world, as we look to emerging as one nation in a spirit of peace and harmony," he said.

Full text of Prime Minister's Milad-un-Nabi message:

Muslims all over the world believe that Prophet Mohamed was the Last Prophet, one who preached a message of goodwill and peace to the world.

He lived a life exemplary to his followers, filled with kindness, love, compassion, fellowship and sharing.

He brought unity and peace to Medina in Saudi Arabia, which at the time was torn by sectorial violence and strife. Today, all Muslims gather at Medina, a holy and a sacred shrine in Islam. It is imperative that we recall this on his sacred day of birth.

In commemorating this occasion with the deepest bonds of fellowship and co-existence, it is timely for us to reflect on the values he taught and shared with the world, as we look to emerging as one nation in a spirit of peace and harmony.

I take this occasion to wish all Muslims celebrating the Prophet's Birthday a blessed time of rejoicing.
