Those who commit acts of terror in the name of Islam are the enemies of the prophet, Ahmed said in his speech.
“Islam is, instead, a religion founded on love,” he said.
Certain people have gone against the teachings of the prophet to commit terror and have led to a misunderstanding of Islam, he added. “We must be wary of these people. It is time to act wisely.”
Muslim devotees celebrate Eid-e-Miladunnabi on the 12th day of Rabi ul Awal in the Hijri calendar.
The Islamic Foundation says it is holding various programmes to commemorate the day.
