President al-Assad Performs Eid al-Adha Prayers at al-Afram Mosque in Damascus 

Oct 26, 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA)- President Bashar al-Assad on Friday morning performed Eid al-Adha Prayers at al-Afram Mosque in al-Muhajirin area in Damascus.

Senior officials of the state, a number of the People's Assembly members and the Grand Mufti of the Republic performed the Prayers along with President al-Assad, in addition to a number of scholars and a crowd of citizens.


Following the Prayers, the President listened to the Eid sermon, delivered by Sheikh Walid Abdul-Haq, which underscored the great meanings of Eid al-Adha.

Sheikh Abdul-Haq referred to the words of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in the farewell sermon in which he called for regarding the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.

"It's our responsibility today to respond to the message of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)…which is to love each other," he added.

Sheikh Abdul-Haq stressed the need under the difficult circumstances to adhere to national unity as the enemies of the Arab and Islamic nation are seeking its division and elimination through sectarian sedition.

He called upon the Syrians to get to solve their internal problems by means of accord, reconciliation and through reform and foil the enemies' attempts of stirring sectarian sedition.


The Eid sermon preacher also called for preserving and protecting the mosques and houses of worship, denouncing the attacks against the Umayyad Mosque in Aleppo and the prevention of Syrian pilgrims from making the pilgrimage this year.

Sheikh Abdul-Haq asked God to help President al-Assad in his efforts to preserve the interests of and bring welfare to the Syrian people.
