Rabi al-Awwal Mubarak

Rabi al-Awwal is one of the most significant month in Islamic history because humanity was blessed in this month by the birth of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Before the birth of the Prophet ﷺ not only the Arabian peninsula but also the so-called civilised nations of Rome and Persia were drowned in the darkness of ignorance, superstitions, oppression and unrest.

The Prophet ﷺ came with the eternal truth of Tawhid (Oneness of Allah), the only faith which provides a firm basis for the real concepts of knowledge, equality and peace. It was this faith that delivered humanity from ignorance and superstitions and spread the light of true knowledge all over the world.

The blessed month of Rabi al-Awwal has begun, the month in which our Prophet ﷺ was sent to us as mercy.

We wish you all a happy and joyous Mawlid season.
