The Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday, sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam
The Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of God be upon him, was born in Mecca on the 12th of the month of Rabiu-l-Awal in the year 570 CE. While it is controversial to celebrate the Prophet’s birthday to some people’s minds (is it a form of worship?), our community gathers every year to celebrate this auspicious occasion.
During this time, SSC offers teachings on the Prophet’s life and opportunities for beloveds to share stories about him. We also have a “salawat-athon” in which we have a goal for reciting a certain number of salawat, and the community does its best to meet it.
In 2022 we expect the Prophet’s birthday to fall on Saturday, October 8th, insha’allah.
