Moslems celebrate the birth of the
prophet on the 12th day of Rabiul Awal
(the first of spring),
the third month in Islamic Calender.
As the Islamic Calender is a lunar calender,
the corresponding date in the
Gregorian Calender varies each year.

This year, it falls on February 15 2011.

The month of Rabiul Awal is significant to
Moslems for various historical reasons.
According to islamic history, Abrahah,
the governor of Yemen circa 571AD,
attempted to destroy the Kaabah in Mecca
with an army that included a large
number of elephants.

The raid was unsuccessful, but because
it was customary to name a year after a
major event, the year became known
as the 'Year of the Elephant'.
It was in this year that
Prophet Muhammad was born.

The most important part of Maulidur Rasul
is remembering the prophet's good deeds,
his teachings, his wisdom & how
he forgave his most bitter enemies.

Also known as Maulud Nabi in Arabic,
the day is observed with marhaban
(recitations of praises & blessings)
and salawat (salutations to the prophet).

Talks are held in mosques &
Moslem organisations take the time to
commemorate the prophet's life &
exemplary character.

For many, observing Maulidur rasul
is an expression of love they have for
the prophet. More than anything, such
gatherings reach & remind the Ummah of the
prophet's life & his call to virtue.

Mulad-an-Nabi Mubarak
to all....
