The Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, is our greatest gift from God. His birthday is a national holiday in every Muslim country except one and is celebrated throughout the world. Scholars of the People of Sunnah have regarded it as an excellent practice. They based this on proofs from the Book, such as the Chapter of Maryam, which recounts the miraculous nature of Christ’s birth – not to mention the many hadiths indicating the high rank and stature of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, and all things related to him. His birthday, the 12th of Rabi’a al-Awwal is also the day he arrived in Medina after his Hijrah. It is also the day he returned to his Lord. In one hadith, he refers to his birthday as a blessed day and encouraged fasting on Mondays for that reason. To that end, we are most joyous in having, once again, the opportunity to reflect on our Prophet’s life and practice in an ambience of solidarity, love, and community. Come join us in celebrating the Mawlid of our Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him.
This past year has been one of immense tribulation for Muslims throughout the world. Tyrants have fallen; worlds have collided; many Muslim countries are engaged in wars, and some are on the brink of civil war. We also have many troubles at home with high divorce rates, wayward youth, and a society that is increasingly materialistic and secular. As things fall apart, we need to reflect on keeping what is worth keeping together, such as families, communities, and our connection with our Lord and our Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him. To that end, we hope to examine the pressing needs of our Ummah in light of our Prophet’s life.
