Afghans are marking the arrival of the birthday anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad under the name of Unity Week.

At a time when Islamophobia is growing in some parts of the world, and amid French president Emmanuel Macron’s recent insulting comments about the holy prophet of Islam, people in Afghanistan are attending ceremonies in Kabul as a show of respect and love for the prophet of over 2 billion Muslims. 

Based on Islamic beliefs, the arrival of Unity Week - as its titles suggests – serves as a big opportunity for Muslims to once again return to the main teachings of the Prophet Muhammad such as strengthening unity among Muslims.

Some others believe that the arrival of the birthday anniversary of Islam's holy prophet is also an opportunity for mankind to review the life and words of the Prophet Muhammad to see the real face of Islam.

Besides calling for boosting Islamic brotherhood among Afghans, those attending ceremonies marking Unity Week say the cementing of national unity among people is one of the musts associated with Unity Week.

As observers say, the best way to lead the nation to real national unity is to remove the obstacles on the way of the ongoing peace talks between the government and Taliban in the Qatari capital Doha.
