Mother's Day celebrated at Iranian Cultural Center in Ashgabat

Special events dedicated to Mother's Day were held at the Cultural Center at the Iranian Embassy in Ashgabat.

The event was attended by the Iranian Ambassador to Turkmenistan Gholam Abbas Arbab Khales, teachers and students of the Cultural Center, also their mothers. The holiday was held in an atmosphere of friendship and mutual respect, positive and good mood. Mother's Day was celebrated with a live music concert and a photo exhibition. A photo competition was organized specially for this day. The best authors received awards.

The Ambassador of Iran held a small quiz for the participants of the event. The Ambassador read the quotations in Persian. The guests of the event had to name the author. But it was not difficult for them to guess, that these sayings are from the book of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov "Adoration of the mother - worship of the shrine".

As the head of the Cultural Center Navid Rasuli told Turkmenportal, the purpose of celebrating such an important event is to familiarize the audience with the culture of Iran and familiarize listeners with the traditions of this holiday, which expresses love for mothers and women in general.

- Turkmenistan and Iran have much in common in history, traditions and culture. We hope that such events will contribute to the strengthening of intercultural exchange between our countries, he added.

In Iran, Mother's Day is celebrated on the twentieth day of the month of Jumad al-Akhir, the birthday of Fatimah Zahra, the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad. On this day, Iranians celebrate two holidays dedicated to women at once - Mother's Day and Women's Day. The date was chosen in honor of Fatimah, who in the Islamic world is considered as the ideal mother and role model for all Muslim women.
