President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said the sayings of Prophet Mohammed, mentioned in the Holy Quran and the Sunna, are considered as strategies that could be turned into policies, norms and traditions.
In an improvised speech during the Prophet Mohammed birth anniversary (Mawlid al-Nabi) celebration held here Thursday at Manara International Conference Center, the president said lying, for instance, is against religion, referring to sharing false news on social media without being aware that such lies are sins punishable by God.
"Everyday lies are being posted and shared on social media," he said.
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi asserted that he has "a will of steel" in confronting terrorism. This is for the sake of religion, all religions because the savage terrorism has a negative impact on the notion of faith and belief, he said.
During a celebration, held here on Thursday marking Mawlid al-Nabi (the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammed), the president said the birth anniversary of the Prophet of mercy is a good opportunity for meditating the essence and targets of his message. "It gives us many lessons to be understood and learned, mainly enduring harm with steadfastness and patience, with the hope of receiving victory from God, and confronting difficulties with work and perseverance."
"The method of combined faith and belief in Allah and the organized and constant efforts, based on the earthly means and laws, should be victorious in the end. God Almighty awards those who seek goodness, peace and construction and endeavor to lift the pain of the people and improve their living conditions."
"I pray to Allah Almighty on this blessed occasion to bring prosperity to the Egyptian people and all Muslims around the globe," he said.
President Abdel Fattah El Sisi underlined the great responsibility and huge trust on the shoulders of any president, revealing for the first time that he had numerously tried to persuade former president Adli Mansour to run for president.
In remarks during a celebration held on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammed, the president said Mansour strongly declined saying that this post poses a big challenge for any person to his religion, life and afterlife.
"I believe the presidency is not related to the president or the regime, but it is rather an issue of building, defending and protecting the nation and pushing it forward to a better position," he stressed.
He asserted that he has an unrelenting determination in facing evil and evil people.
The great Egyptian people are in continuous strife against terrorism which harms the nation and religion, he said.
