Celebrations at the Military Governorate Headquarters of Tehran,


Last Thursday, on the occasion of the birthday of the Prophet Mohammad, Son of Abdollah, a glorious celebration was held by Brigadier General Bakhtiyar, at the Military Governorate Headquarters in Tehran, the previous Haziratu’l-Quds[1], attended by many people from different ranks and businesses. And some of the clergy presented comprehensive talks and speeches.

We are delighted that in this place—where once, in the name of worshipping God, the apostates and infidels used to perform thousands of crimes—,one of the greatest Muslim festivals was celebrated today.
