On his Facebook official page, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi expressed congratulations to Egyptians on the occasion of the birth of Prophet Muhammad. 

The president expressed felicitations for "the day of the birth of the one who freed minds, and the light of hearts. His life was a history of great generosity and tenderness and sacrifice for those who were not yet born.”

"The earth shone with light on the day of his birth, mercy came to the world, may you have a great year and be blessed on the occasion of the birth of the master of all creatures, our master Muhammad peace be upon him," El-Sisi said in commemoration of “a great leader and a loving prophet.”

Tuesday marks the Prophet’s birthday, which is a holiday widely celebrated across the Islamic world.

In Egypt, colorful displays cover the sides of sweet shops and bakeries, with sweet horses and dolls sold to celebrate the anniversary.
