Prime Minister Imran Khan said that State of Madina established by Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was a guiding principle for the people of all ages as it had not merely focused the betterment of Muslims but the whole humanity.
In his message to the countrymen on Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) being celebrated on Sunday to mark the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the prime minister said Islam had introduced the concept of first welfare state in the human history which was executed by the Holy Prophet and his companions.
He said the high principles being followed by today’s modern welfare states had already been practiced by the Holy Prophet by establishing State of Madina in the age of darkness and the deteriorating society.
Moreover, the companions of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) further enriched this concept through ensuring justice and equality in their respective tenures which was the golden chapter of the world history.
