“I hope that, with the blessings of this … Eid, we can more than before present a bright picture of this merciful religion (Islam) to the world through empathy, fraternity and establishment of peace, stability and security among all Muslims,” he said in the message.
“I am certain that by benefiting from the sublime teachings of Islam … we, together, will be able to eliminate violence, extremism and terrorism from Muslim lands,” he said.
President Rouhani further prayed for prosperity and happiness for all Muslims world over.
