In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate and the Most Merciful
His Eminence Grand Sheikh of Al Azhar,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
May Allah’s Peace, Mercy and Blessings be Upon You,
Allow me at the very beginning to congratulate the great people of Egypt and all the Arab and Muslim peoples on the occasion of the anniversary of the blessed birthday of Honorable Prophet Mohammed (PBUH); and I pray to Allah Almighty to repeat this great anniversary with goodness to the Egyptian people and to all Muslims all over the earth.
Our celebration today of the birth anniversary of the Prophet of mercy and guidance is a good opportunity for meditating the essence and targets of the message received by the Honorable Prophet. He delivered this message to us shouldering much harm, which did not prevent him (PBUH), to perform the mission assigned to him by Allah Almighty.
The grave hardships endured by the Honorable Prophet give us many lessons that should be understood and learned, mainly enduring harm with steadfastness and patience with the hope of receiving victory from Allah, and confronting difficulties with non-stop work and perseverance.
The method of combined faith and belief in Allah Almighty and the organized work and constant efforts, based on the earthly means, laws and development, should be victorious in the end. Allah Almighty awards those who seek goodness, peace and construction and endeavor to lift the pain of the people and improve their living conditions.
Let me tell you in all sincerity..As we are following the example of the Honorable Prophet (PBUH), we exert the utmost effort to achieve a qualitative leap in the performance of our country and provide the reasons of strength and advancement on all levels.
The mission, which every one of us shoulder within the framework of his/her responsibility, urges us sparing no effort to know the reasons of progress and highness while avoiding the reasons of failure and collapse.
As we are not far from achieving aspirations of the great people of Egypt in security, peace, development and prosperity, we do not pay attention to attempts of disruption and obstruction by our enemies. We replay to such attempts through more work and a lot of effort while looking forward with hope and confidence and belief in Allah Almighty that what benefits people will stay on the earth.
Let me tell you the truth, I have full confidence in the near victory of Allah for Egypt and its people and in achieving all our hopes in building an advanced modern nation in which our great people enjoys safe and dignified life.
Extremism, terrorism, false skepticism, slander against the rightness and all physical and moral attempts of destruction and sabotage that we are facing will not prevent this people with steel will from going on in his way towards a better future.
We will face evil with good, demolition with construction, despair with work and seditions with unity and cohesion.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
