Al-Kafeel University, affiliated to the Education and Higher Education Commission at the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine, organized its sixth annual festival to commemorate the birth anniversary of the greatest Prophet Mohammad (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) and his grandson Imam Ja'far as-Sadeq (peace be upon him), under the slogan: (Our Prophet is the teacher of progress and humanity).
The events were held in the hall of the Faculty of Pharmacy at the university, in the presence of its president, Prof. Nawras al-Dahan, and a group of its teaching staff, students and employees. It began with the recitation of verses from the Holy Qur’an by the Director of the Holy Quran Institute in Najaf, Mr. Muhannad al-Mayyali.
This was followed by a speech by Sheikh Abdullah al-Dujaili, in which he stated that: “A personality like the Noble Messenger Mohammad - Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household - is a sacred and great figure for us Muslims, who adorned the face of all humanity with lofty values. And celebrating its auspicious birth anniversary is a remembrance of those human values and morals, which he brought and saved humanity from misguidance to the light of mercy and human compassion. Thus this celebration motivates us to adhere more to his path.”
There was also the word of Dr. Ibrahim Jawdah, in which he discussed some qualities of the Great Prophet (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) in the Holy Qur'an.
Then Dr. Mu'ayad Abd al-Mon'im stated in his word: “The religion of the Prophet Mohammad (Allah's prayers be upon him and upon his holy Household) takes into account each of the different human stages, including gradualism in rulings and flexibility in legislation and justice.”
After that, the top students of the university from all disciplines were honored. The festival included free drawing activity by a group of students, through which they expressed their joy on this occasion.
