The fundamental preaching of the Prophet Muhammad were highlighted by the Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum as he gathered with devotees to mark Eid Milad un-Nabi on Sunday. The event was held at Fiji’s oldest mosque at Wainikoro.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the idea of celebrating how the prophet lived his life means one must show empathy and know how to interact with others.

“Every year when we celebrate the Prophet’s birthday; if not doing on daily basis it is the time for us to look at ourselves what we are doing,” he said.

The A-G also highlighted that there was no confusion in religion, as they were all brothers and sisters in humanity.

He said the constitution gives us the privilege as a secular state so that every Fijian has the opportunity and right to practice their own religion.

He added that it was important to use religion as a way to make friends and live in harmony rather than use it as a fighting tool.
