Despite their harsh living conditions caused by the years-long Saudi war and siege, thousands of Yemenis filled the streets of the capital Sana'a and thirteen other cities to celebrate the Prophet Mohammad's birth anniversary.

Yemenis said they gathered to send a message to the world that Islam is the religion of peace and so its prophet.

They called on other Muslim nations to mark this day to renew their loyalty to the prophet Mohammad.

For centuries now, Yemenis used to mark the Prophet Mohammad's birth anniversary as part of their religious culture.

Such ceremonies include various cultural and religious events like reciting verses from Holy Quran.

Dressed in green, the color of peace and mercy, Yemenis celebrate the birth of the prophet Mohammad which is a great blessing for the whole humanity. People here say Muslims around the world should follow the footsteps of the Prophet and stand against the enemies of Islam.
