On January 19, 2013 Turkish Cultural Center organized a program to celebrate the “Birth of Prophet Muhammad” at Bergen Technical School. Around 900 guests participated the program which started with a welcome speech of Oguzhan Senturk, the President of Turkish Cultural Center. The event continued with Quran recitation then¬†Murat Duman, a historian and writer, gave a presentation titled “Prophet love of Ottomans”. Emotions overflew among the audience when Ahmet Gumuskaya chanted beautiful songs. The real surprise of the program was Mehmet Serif Faruki from Tadjikistan, who won the 2nd rank in 2012 Turkish Olympiads. He read a M. Fethullah Gulen poem, “Don’t leave me alone”. The program ended with a prayer.
