Rabi-ul-awwal....Humanity has been blessed in this month


Rabi-ul-awwal is the third month in the Islamic calendar. It is the most significant month in the Islamic history. Muslims believes that humanity has been blessed in this month by the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Muslims around the world celebrates Eid Milad-un-Nabi (The birthday of Holy Prophet P.B.U.H). This is the holiest month which carries greatest blessings of Almighty Allah as the Holy Prophet (SAW) was born on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal. All Muslims who love him most dearly await for the birthday of the last Prophet of Allah with all their heart and soul. On the occasion sweets and drinks are also distributed widely from home to home and to the general public. In some areas Muslims also exchange gifts. It is the month of blessings in Muslims. In celebration of Rabi-ul-Awal, Muslims all over the world urged to get together and arrange Mehfil-e-Naat and Mehfil-e-Zikr for the whole month. The 12th of Rabi-ul-Awal is marked as the birth date of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, who is the last to be sent with the divine message for the guidance of humanity. Unlike the ways followers of other religions and faiths commemorate the births of their prophets, Muslims celebrate Eid-e-Milad un Nabi on 12th Rabi-ul-Awal in which they gather to discuss the bounty and favor which Allah SWT has blessed the Muslims with by guiding them to the righteous path of Islam and the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah of the final messenger of Allah. The month of Rabi-ul-Awal is not exceptional for being the month of birth of our beloved Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W), but it is the month in which our Holy Prophet (S.A.W) began his journey of Hijrah and built the first Mosque of Islam, Masjid-e-Quba. Rabi-ul-Awal is also significant, as the first Jummah prayer was established in this month. The sacred day of 12th of Rabi-ul-Awal is especially important to the Muslim world, because on this day Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was born, who led humanity from darkness to light and who is described by Allah as “a mercy to all the worlds – Rehmat-ullil-Alimeen”. Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi is celebrated by theMuslims in East and West on 12th Rabi-ul-Awal with great devotion and reverence. The occasion like 12th Rabi-ul-Awal is meant to remind people of how the Prophet lived his life and to rejuvenate their Eiman. Nowadays, the celebrations of such religious occasion like 12th Rabi-ul-Awal is extremely important to instill values, ethics and moral code in youth, practiced by the Prophet (S.A.W). The occasion of 12th Rabi-ul-Awal serves a great purpose in that it brings the people closer to the teachings of Islam and to the Holy Prophet’s way of life. The sacred month of Rabi-ul-Awal causes the Muslims to remember the blessings of Holy Prophet and to fill their hearts with the love of the Prophet. It is the duty of every Muslim parent to tell the stories of Prophet (S.A.W) to their children on 12th Rabi-ul-Awal that shed light on different aspects of his life..
