Unique Way to Celebrate 12 Rabiul Awwal
Holy Prophet of Islam and Allahs Messenger (peace be upon him) was born
on 12 Rabi-ul-Awwal . His birth took place in Makkah on a Monday in the house
known as Dar Al-Mawlid, in the year of the Elephant, which corresponds to 571
C.E. Both his father, Abdullah Ibn Abdul Muttalib, and mother, Amina Bint Wahab,
were well-known individuals. The Holy Prophet never knew his father, who had died
in the months before his birth. It was left to his grandfather to name him Muhammad
(s.a.w.). It is incumbent upon Muslims to know the importance of this noble Prophet
(pbuh) and to abide by the Quran, which was revealed to him
is the most significant month in the Islamic history, because humanity has
been blessed in this month by the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad , Sall-Allahu
alayhi wa sallam. Before the birth of the Holy Prophet, (Sall-Allahu alayhi wa
sallam), not only the Arabian peninsula, but also the so-called civilized nations
of Rome and Persia were drowned in the darkness of ignorance, superstitions, oppression
and unrest. The Holy Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, came with the eternal
truth of Tawhid (Oneness of Allah), the only faith which provides a firm basis
for the real concepts of knowledge, equity and peace. It was this faith which
delivered humanity from ignorance and superstitions and spread the light of true
knowledge all over the world.
Shereh Bukhari Imam Ahmad Qistalaani (radi Allahu anhu) states in his
most distinguished work "Mustataab Mawahibul Laduniyah" that Hazrat
Zainul Aabideen (radi Allahu anhu) narrated from His father Hazrat Imam
Hussain (radi Allahu anhu) who narrated from His father Hazrat Ali Mushkil
Kusha (radi Allahu anhu) that the Beloved Prophet (Sall Allaho Alaihi Wa
has stated," 14000 years before the creation of Hazrat Adam (Alaihis
Salaam) I was a Noor by my creator."
2) Hazrat Abu Bakr
Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) says, "Whosoever spends one
the birthday (Moulood) of the Prophet (sall Allaho alaihi
wasallam), he will
be with me in Jannat." (An Ne'matul Kubra)
3) The Beloved Prophet
Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi
wa Sallam celebrated his

Monday. He Salla Allahu ta'ala
'alayhi wa Sallam said:
"I took birth and the Quran was revealed
upon me in this day."
(Mishkat Sharif, Page 179)

Allahu anhu) states, "When the beloved Prophet (Sall Allaho Alaihi Wa
Sallam) used to smile then the walls would glow with his Noor."

of Hazrat Abu Moosa Ash'ari (radi Allahu anhu)

Allaho alaihi wasallam) said, "I am Muhammad and
Ahmed and I am the one

and I am the one who

will be present before
the Prophet (sall Allaho alaihi wasallam) on
Maidaan-e-Hashr) and I am the
Prophet of Mercy."

alaihi wasallam) said, "On the day of Qiyamaah I will be the Leader
Khatib of all the Ambia (Alaihimus Salaam) and I will be the master of

Allahu anhu) talking about his failure to join (the Ghazwa of)

questioning." (An Ne'matul Kubra)
