MUSLIMS IN ZIMBABWE COMMEMORATES IMAM MAHDIS BIRTH DAY

12 May 2017

Muslims and the followers of other divine religions expectantly await the coming of the Saviour, who is expected to bring justice to the entire human kind.

Speaking before a capacity crowd made up of diplomats from the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iranians and Lebanese resident in Zimbabwe as well as other Muslims of various nationalities gathered in Harare on Thursday, 11 May, evening, His Excellency the Ambassador of Iran in Zimbabwe, Mr. Ahmad Erfanian, spoke glowingly of the need for all followers of various world religions to embrace justice, truth, monotheism, purity and worship, traits that Imam Mahdi is expected to bring when he finally comes.

He said the coming of Imam Mahdi (a.s.) will result in good overcoming evil, and humanity will start to enjoy a true and pleasant life in which struggles will not imply fighting each other. The new era will result in people struggling for equality and doing the right things.

His Excellency the Ambassador also congratulated the Shea Muslims on the auspicious day, a day that he said is full of hope and promise for all the faithful people.

Mr Erfanian noted the coming of the Saviour is something that is being shared by people of all religions as his coming is expected to usher in an era of a bright future and the prevalence of justice.

Dr. Mahmoudi, the Commercial Attaché of the Embassy of Iran said that all the major religions of the world have one thing in common, that they are all awaiting the coming of the saviour as well. They also share the same divine expectations from creation to judgement.

Dr Mohsen Shojakhani, the Cultural Counsellor at the Embassy of Iran in his welcoming remarks, welcomed and thanked all the people who attended the commemorations, noting that Imam Mahdi (a.s.)s birthday is an occasion in which humanity should reflect on how to overcome the serious injustices afflicting humanity and proffering solutions on how best to overcome them.

Organised by the Cultural Centre of the Embassy of Iran, the commemorations saw the gathering being entertained by poets from Fatima Zahra (a.s.) college, who performed a poem through song in which they extolled the virtues of Imam Mahdi (a.s.), the Saviour. There was also another poem recitation in Farsi by an Iranian diplomat from the embassy.

People were also entertained by pre-recorded mauludis in English, Farsi and Arabic languages.
