He furthered, “If today we want peace, serenity, tranquility and well-being of others and if we want truth, honesty and progress then we have to adopt the life and high moral values of the society structured by our holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The holy life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a guarantee for the whole of humanity and for [the] welfare and success of the world.”

In a message to the nation, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that the Prophet (PBUH) led humanity on the path to "his Creator and his life was the embodiment of all the qualities of the preceding prophets and messengers of Allah".
