PostSubject: Al Mawlid Nabawi Charif   Mon 10 Apr - 15:39

Hello everyone sunny

First of all I wish everyone a happy Mawlid. Here you can find some words about this religious event.

Mawlid al-Nabi is a celebration of the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), founder of Islam. The day is fixed at the 12th day of the month of Rabi al-Awwal in the Muslim calendar. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born about A. D. 570 and died in A. D. 632. During his life, he established Islam as a religion and, in doing so, replaced tribal loyalty with equality among all Muslims.

At a critical point in his life, Muhammad (peace be upon him) received a vision of the angel Gabriel who called him into service as a prophet. He later received a second vision of Gabriel who told him to "magnify thy Lord." Muhammad (peace be upon him) then began to preach publicly in Mecca where he had lived for many years. Many people were receptive to his message but others ridiculed him. Because of the opposition of many citizens of Mecca and threats against him, Muhammad fled to Yathrib in A. D. 622. This journey of nearly 200 miles is known as the Hegira and is so important that the Muslim calendar begins with the year of the Hegira.

The Mawlid al-Nabi was first observed around the thirteenth century and was preceded by a month of celebration. The actual day of Muhammad's birthday included a sermon, recitation of litanies, honoring of religious dignitaries, gift giving, and a feast. The festival spread throughout the Muslim world and is celebrated in many countries today even if some conservative sects (e.g., the Wahhabiyah) consider the celebration to be idolatrous.

Muslims are thankful to Allah for the blessing of Islam and for being among the followers of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon Him). They believe in what was revealed in Surat Al-A^r af: فالذين ء امنوا به وعزروه meaning [those who believed in Muhammad and glorified him]. (Peace Be Upon Him)

Allah has praised his Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) in the Holy Qur’an better than any other praising, in Surat al-Qalam Allah said: وانك لعلى خلق عظيم which means: “You indeed have great manners”.

The celebration of the Prophet’s birth, in other words “Al-Mawlid” "Mawlid Al-Nabiy", has a great benefit. It inspires the heart to have a more profound love for our dear Prophet (Peace Be upon Him). It is commemorated by millions of Muslims all over the world who join together for many rewardable deeds.

Among these deeds are: reciting verses from the Holy Qur’an; chanting Islamic praises; telling the story of the Prophet’s birth (Peace Be upon Him); teaching religious knowledge; slaughtering animals to feed the poor; and gathering to thank and praise Allah for the blessing of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be upon him), and to ask Allah to exalt the honour of our Prophet, sallal ahu ^alaihi wa Sallam.


The only magic is perseverance
