In his speech, the Chairman of GAIAA, Dr Hamdan Al Mazrouei, stressed that the world, in general, and the Arabian Peninsula, in particular, was in darkness and barbarism until Allah sent Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to quell the darkness and restore the maximum rights to human beings.

Among those who attended the celebration were Islamic scholars, including Shaikh Mohammed Saeed Al Boti, winner of the Dubai Holy Quran Award and Al Habib bin Ali Al Jafari.
