Eid Milad-un-Nabi, the birthday of Islam’s Prophet Muhammad, was commemorated Tuesday evening by the Pakistani embassy in Turkey's capital.
The ceremony, which took place at the Pakistan Embassy International Study Group (PEISG) in Ankara, a fully English-medium international school, was attended by members of the Pakistani community, teachers and students of the school and officials of the embassy.
Pakistan’s Ambassador to Turkey Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi in his remarks said the Holy Prophet’s entire life is an excellent model for all of us to follow.
"By following Prophet Muhammad’s teachings of tolerance, peace, compassion, perseverance, humility, honesty and generosity, we could achieve success both in this world and the hereafter," he said.
Qazi emphasized that by following Prophet Muhammad's teachings in their true spirit, humanity can achieve salvation and overcome challenges that we face today.
