Zahedan Hosts Int’l Qaris in A Quranic Circle

The event was held at Zahedan’s Towhidieh Mosque on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the Unity Week.

Seyyed Javad Hosseini, Sangar Abdul Ghader from Iraq, and Esmail Moradi recited versers of the Holy Quran in the session.

The meeting was also attended by a number of Shia and Sunni scholars of the region and local people.

Back in 1980s, late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini (RA) announced the almost one-week difference between birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as cited by Sunni and Shia anecdotes as the week of Islamic Unity.

Shia Muslims believe the Prophet (PBUH) was born on 17th day of (the lunar month of) Rabi al-Awwal while Sunni consider 12th day of the month as the birthday of the last prophet.
