SANA’A – Millions of Yemenis on Saturday have gathered in the 70th Square in the Capital Sana’a and in several other provinces to celebrate and commemorate the anniversary of the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed (Peace be Upon Him).
The participants in the mass rally carried banners and leaflets, which express their immortalized love and respect for the Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). They confirmed their adherence to the prophet’s approach, teachings and examples set during his life.
The mass rally has witnessed a remarkable public and official attendance as the crowds began to flock to the arena since the early hours of the morning from various directorates of Sana’a, Amana and the provinces nearby. The participants stressed that the celebration of this occasion is considered as a station from which Muslims are inspired by the lessons and the biography of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
They further stressed that the celebration of the Prophet’s birthday “aims to bring the nation back to the values of the message and to the prophet’s approach, as well as his courage, wisdom and grace.”
The participants sent messages to the Saudi-led aggression forces and arrogance that the Messenger of Allah is in the hearts of Yemenis in words and deeds. A strong message was sent to the enemies stated that Yemen remains the strongest, dearest and capable of confronting aggression by all available and possible means.
The attendants chanted “Labbayk Labbayk, Ya Rasool Allah” (Here I am, Oh Messenger of God) which express their longing to one day see the Messenger.
The Leader of the Revolution, Sayyid Abdul-Malik Badreddin al- Houthi, hailed the huge crowds of people and congratulated them on the anniversary of Birthday of the Messenger for Humanity, Mohammed, Peace Be Upon Him.
“The Prophet’s birthday anniversary is a station to promote and consolidate Islamic principles,” Sayyid al-Houthi said during his speech in the rally.
“Our people hold on to their brothers within their nation, a principled position of faith that cannot be abandoned and bartered in the auction of political bargaining,” he added.
He confirmed that “whoever seeks war and siege to control us and subjugate us, he seeks the impossible, and at the end he will be the loser (…) We extend a hand of brotherhood and peace to all nations, and whoever holds a hostile position against us bear the responsibility for their wrong choice and unjust decision,” the Sayyid said.
The Leader of the Revolution directed a strongly-worded message to the Saudi regime, warning it of the continuation in its aggression on the Yemeni people.
“I call on the Saudi regime to stop the aggression and siege, otherwise the risks of the continuation in the aggression and its results will be great,” Sayyid al-Houthi added.
He confirmed that the Yemeni people would never give up and would not change their attitude towards all issues, especially the Palestinian cause.
The Revolution’s Leader noted that “the continuation of the aggression will make us continue to develop our military capabilities and direct the most severe strikes to the enemy as that is a legitimate right.”
Sayyid Abdul-Malik al-Houthi addressed a strongly-worded message to Zionist entity, vowing a harsh response in the event of its involvement in any folly against the Yemeni people.
“Our people will not hesitate to declare jihad against the Israeli enemy, if it involves itself in any folly against Yemeni people (…) our hostile attitude towards Israel, as a usurper entity, is a principled humanitarian, moral and religious commitment.”
The Leader furthermore revealed that the amount of oil stolen during five years of Saudi-led coalition aggression on Yemen has exceeded 120 million barrels, with total revenues lost by the Yemeni people due to the aggression amounting to no less than 12 trillion Yemeni riyals, which would have been enough to pay salaries of all Yemeni state employees for 12 years.
