(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Members of the Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society engaged with all 129 Members of The Scottish Parliament including leaders across parties, and their offices advance of the holiday season's recess in an enterprise promoting goodwill and peace.
Each of the MSPs were specially handed a rose and greetings in celebration of our remembrance of the births of the Prophets Muhammad and Jesus [Peace be Upon Them], along with quotes of the Prophet Muhammad highlighting the universal values of virtue, generosity and peace.
The elected representatives showed great enthusiasm and encouragement for the cause, and were delighted to have learnt of the happy occasions and to have shared in the message of hopefulness and conciliation, rooted in values we all hold dear, at times when such work grows evermore vital.
"We are thankful for a special day and for a truly unique and memorable interaction with the elected members of the Scottish Parliament, and owe our particular gratitude to the Presiding Officer, the Rt. Hon Ken Macintosh MSP for making this possible, and Bill Kidd MSP, Chief Whip of The Scottish Government, and his office manager John Docherty for facilitating it.
"We also took the opportunity to remember the Late Alex Johnstone, who was Member of the Scottish Parliament for North East Scotland, and who passed away on the 7th December".
