Iran condemns"hateful and spiteful" actions toward Islam, Holy Qur'an: President Raeisi

President Ebrahim Raeisi of Iran has expressed strong condemnation for the "hateful and spiteful" actions targeting Islam in various parts of the world.

Iran (IMNA) - In a message to leaders and nations of Muslim countries on the Prophet Muhammad's birth anniversary, Raeisi emphasized that sacrilegious acts against Islam deeply affect the sentiments of Muslims worldwide. He described Islam as a religion that stands for freedom and equality, with the Holy Qur'an serving as a source of mercy and wisdom.

The Iranian president emphasized that insulting the Holy Qur'an, which is considered a precious miracle of Prophet Muhammad, amounts to an insult against humanity, freedom, values, and spirituality. Recent incidents of desecration of the Muslim holy book in cities across the Netherlands, Sweden, and Denmark have sparked widespread protests throughout the Muslim world. These acts have been carried out with the approval of their respective governments and under the protection of security forces, further exacerbating the situation.

Raeisi also expressed optimism that all Muslim nations would come together and strengthen their unity and solidarity. He emphasized the importance of promoting Islam worldwide through the guidance of the Holy Qur'an and the determination of Muslim leaders.

The Prophet of Islam was born on the 17th day of the lunar month of Rabi-ul-Awwal in the year 570 CE. This day is also significant as it marks the birth anniversary of Imam Ja’far Sadiq (AS), the sixth Shia Imam, which will occur on a Tuesday this year.

According to the Sunni tradition, the Prophet's (PBUH) birth date is observed on the 12th day of Rabi-ul-Awwal.

In line with Imam Khomeini's call, the week between these two dates has been designated as "the Islamic Unity Week" to foster harmony and cooperation among Muslims.
