A senior adviser to Iran’ Leader and the head of Islamic Azad University, board of directors and trustees, has sent felicitations on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (S) and Imam Sadiq (as), named as Unity Week.

According to an ISCA report, in addition to extending greetings to the Muslims of the world, Dr. Velayati emphasized on the necessity and top priority of the Islamic World of today which is to keep united and preserve solidarity in the face of all divisive plots as well as against schism, “I congratulate the birth anniversary of the Almighty's Last and Greatest Messenger to mankind, Prophet Mohammad (SAWA) and the beginning of Unity Week to all the Muslims,” he wrote.

“Indeed, we must greatly remember the innovation of “great architect of the Islamic Republic” in announcing Unity Week, which is in two different narrations regarding the date of birth of the Prophet, so the decision paved the ground for unifying and solidifying the Islamic Umma, something its urgency is quite visible today and the Supreme Leader has highlighted, many times, this important issue as the top priority of the Islamic World,” reads the message of Mr. Velayati.

The 17th day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal on the lunar Hijri calendar is believed by the Shia Muslims to mark the birth anniversaries of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), while Sunni Muslims regard the 12th day of the month as the birthday of the last prophet.

During this week, the followers of the two main branches of Islam, Shias and Sunnis, gather to honor Islam’s message of peace and humanity and express their love and affection for their prophet.
