One thought

  1. Pre Islamic scenes in the Arabian peninsula was anything but an organized communities of the society then ,the very first surah of the holy Quran encourages believers to seek His forgiveness and seeks strength from Him to walk on the path of righteousness.Greatest codes of ethics that pre Islamic societies had abandoned our beloved Prophet (PBUH) had vigorously revived,implemented and propagated are the solid foundations of our contempery values and ethics and belief ,the prophet (PBUH) walked alone knowing fully well that Moulana Ali (AS) was by his side ,Quran calls him Rahematul Aalmin – mercy to the worlds.
    All the water and trees can not sufficiently praise Him and His prophets (PBUT) ,so says the Holy Book ,to the saviour of the humanities ,our beloved prophet (PBUH) Happy Milad un Nani and appropriately Thanksgiving.
