Celebrating Prophet Muhammad’s birthday by preaching love

Muhammad’s birthday

Muslims around the world will be celebrating the ‘Mawlid al-Nabi’ (Mawlid means birthday of a holy figure, al-Nabi means prophet), the celebration of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah send His peace and blessings upon him) For many Muslims this is a longstanding historical and cultural event which they see as an expression of their joy and love for the Prophet, who taught them what it means to be Muslim.
