Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb congratulated Christians all over the world, on Sunday, on the occasion of Christmas.

“I congratulate my dear brothers and friends Pope Francis, Pope Tawadros II, the Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Justin Welby, Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople along with other church leaders and all Christian brothers in the East and West for the occasion of Christmas,” Al-Tayeb wrote on Twitter.

In another tweet, he said: “I pray that Almighty Allah raises the voice of fraternity and peace and for safety and stability to prevail everywhere.”

This week, U.S. President Joe Biden delivered his "Christmas address" and stressed national unity, reflection, and kindness as 2022 comes to end.

Biden affirmed that he hopes this holiday season will drain the poison that has infected the politics and mark “a fresh start for our nation -- because there's so much that unites us as Americans, so much more that unites us than divides us.”
