Today is a holy day for our Muslim friends. This year tenth November today is MILAD UN NABI and naturally forms the theme for this week’s Sunday story in ENVIUS THOUGHTS.
Muslims in India observe Milad un–Nabi, which commemorates the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday. Milad un–Nabi is also known as Nabi Day, Mawlid, Mohammad’s Birthday or the Prophet’s Birthday. MILAD is MY LORD!!
Mawlid or Mawlid al-Nabi al-Sharifi- It is the observance of the birthday of Islamic prophet Muhammad which is commemorated in Rabi’ al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar. 12th Rabi’ al-awwal is the accepted date among most of the Sunni scholars, while Shi’a scholars regard 17th Rabi’ al-awwal as the accepted date.
The history of this celebration goes back to the early days of Islam when some of the Tabi‘un began to hold sessions in which poetry and songs composed to honour Muhammad were recited and sung to the audience.. The Ottomans declared it an official holiday in 1588, known as Mevlid andil. Most denominations of Islam approve of the commemoration of Muhammad’s birthday;
Let us invoke the grace and blessings of Allah for world peace and harmony, plenty and prosperity, health and happiness.
With this we end this Sunday story and we shall meet tomorrow morning as usual. Till then GOOD BYE!
Ashhadu la ilaha illallah
Asahadunna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Get up my brother, it’s Ramzan time
Call has come – rush to our shrines
Drink the nectar, pre-dawn porridge
And fast till the Sun is seen in the western ridge!
Sing in praise of Allah sure five times
Spare one fifth of what you earn
For those who suffer hard all times
Make them happy with what you can!
Polygamy surely not a ban
Without which happily live I can
Sunflower plant holds only one
Never a second flower born in its stem!
Allah is undoubtedly great!
Asahadunna la ilaha illallah
To me Allah and Allah alone is God!
Asha ha duanna Mohammadu Rasulillahi
Prophet Mohammed last messenger of Allah!
Come rush to namaz
Get deliverance from the pain of Hell!
La ilaha illallah
Allah is holy and great!
Day is gone and time for namaz
Call is heard from the holy tower
What a great mystic experience
Godly light from sacred Mecca
Heavenly light from holy Bethlehem
Divine light from hallowed Himalayas
All flash through mind’s layers!
Allah, Christ and Maheshwara
Blessing me fine to reach the Goal
Goal when reached redeems the soul
Through love and piety, peace and poise
Compassion and universal brotherhood all to rejoice!
Hayya alal falah
Get me the deliverance from the pains of hell!
Bismillah hirrahman nirrahim
Most merciful and benevolent Allah!
