Shia and Sunni celebrated Prophet Mohammed’s (PBUH) birthday in Masjid Baab ul Ilm, Okhla Vihar. On this occasion, Azeem Amrohvi Naqvi, Qasmi Imam Khaleel ullah Masjid , Maulana Hasan Kumaili and Majid Deobandi were the chief guests
Maulana Hasan Kumaili said: “The occasion would strengthen bonds of fraternity among Muslim nations. Muslim countries should follow Prophet’s legacy of devotion and introduce the religion of peace to the rest of the world.”
These meetings between the Shia and Sunni scholars are important and useful as there are no real differences between Shias and Sunnis, yet there are philological differences that exist even inside the same sect, said a participant.
Hasan Kumaili said: “We are united under one Allah. Kaaba, Quraan, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), prayers and fasting are followed by all of us.”
Khaleel Ullah Masjid Okhla Vihar Maulana Qasmi said: “As divided we fall we should be united.”
