Milad-un-Nabi marks the anniversary of the birth of Prophet Muhammed (may peace be upon him and his family).
Translated from Kiswahili, by Karim Maherali.
Second Vice President Ambassador Seif Ali Iddi reminded believers of the religion of Islam in the country to continue to love their leader Prophet Muhammad so that they may attain felicity in this life and the hereafter.
He said that the command to love the Prophet is in the Holy Qur’an which denounces some segments of believers for opposing the celebration of the Prophet’s birthday.
Ambassador Seif Ali Iddi gave this reminder in the celebration of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad organized by the Aga Khan Council that took place at the Hall of Shia Imami Ismaili Prince Aga Khan Jamatkhana at Aly Hasan Mwinyi Street Upanga in the city of Dar es Salaam.
Ambassador Seif thanked and congratulated the Aga Khan through Ismaili community for his plans to develop and support both the governments in Tanzania through his various investment projects of Development in mainland and Zanzibar.
He said that the restoration of some buildings undertaken by the Aga Khan in the Stone Town of Zanzibar have turned out to be good attractions which help to raise the national income through the increase in the number of tourists and visitors who enter Zanzibar through the tourism sector.
In welcoming the guest of honour in this celebration, the Vice-President of the Ismaili community Mr. Kamal Khimji said that the Ismaili community organizes these birthday celebrations of the Prophet with the goal of implementing the guidance that he left which should be promoted all through our lives.
Mr. Kamal said Prophet Muhammad is the model of good behavior for the believers of the Islamic religion which they are supposed to use in their studies of religion together with their daily life routines.
These celebrations of the birthdays of the Prophet Muhammad which have been organised by the Aga Khan National Council have included exhibitions of various books of the religion of Islam which the participants have been able to view.
Academic Director of the issues of Islam and history of this community Dr. Amin Rehmani explained to the participants of this exhibition that this exhibition has been organised with a view to provide the picture of ways of beliefs in this faith and to create love for learning about their faith.
Dr. Amin said that action will provide a good opportunity to understand the religion of Islam, to build arguments against their opponents who employ false interpretations of the Qur’an with the intention of misleading the believers.
