King attends ceremony marking Prophet's birthday
Amman, 24 January 2013



His Majesty King Abdullah on Thursday attended a ceremony held by the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs at the King Abdullah I Mosque to mark Prophet Mohammad's (PBUH) birthday. 

Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Abdul Salam Abbadi noted that Prophet Mohammad called for promoting the values of peace and tolerance and renouncing all forms of extremism, abuse and defamation, adding that these values were reflected in the Amman Message, issued by King Abdullah in November 2004 to shine the true light of Islam across the world.

Royal family members, senior officials and religious figures and scholars attended the ceremony.
