He said the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) after a hard struggle for 13 years founded the State of Madina and then faced further hardships for more five years. The state, which was established by the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) after passing through tough phases, had become best example to be emulated by the entire world, he added.
