Rabi Ul Awwal, also referred to as Rabi Ul Noor, is the third month in the Islamic Calendar and the most important month in the Islamic calendar. On 12 Rabi Ul Awwal, our Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born. It is stated on verse 15 of Surah Maida in the Quran that, “Undoubtedly, there has come to you from Allah a light and a Book, luminous“. The Light was being referred to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), hence the name Rabi Un Noor.

Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is the last of the prophets and the leader of the prophets in the Heaven. He is a human being, but is far superior than any human being ever in this world. All prophets have superiority over humans, but Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) has more superiority than the other prophets. Why? In any family, the last child is the most loved one and pampered by the whole family; the child gets all the attention and love. Similarly, our Prophet is the last prophet in the family of Prophets and is the most loved and closest one to Allah. Allah Almighty has given Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) they key to all the treasures of the world and the hereafter.

The night when Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born, his arrival in the world was announced beforehand in the heavens. Angels were waiting for Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)’s arrival; waving Islamic flag. Special females arrived to Aminah’s house, Mother of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), to assist her and take care of the new one. When Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born, there was joy in the whole universe. Kabah, the sun and the moon were all rejoicing except for one person – the devil. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) would lead the human civilization to the pure way of life, away from the devilish way which would mean a defeat for the devil.

The day Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born, the tyrant Iranian King[s palace was shaken by an earthquake resulting in 14 spikes being destroyed and extinguishing of the flame that had been burring for 1000 years. Such was the impact because the Righteous and the Blessed One was here; here to save humanity.

There would have been no Islam and we wouldn’t have been Muslims if Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) hadn’t born. It was Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) who went up to the Heavens and returned with the gift of Namaz. There would have been no Masjids, no Ramadan, and no Eid. We all love Ramadan and fasting and then celebrating Eid. All of this is possible because Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) introduced Islam to the world. Thus 12 Rabi Ul Awwal is the most important day and Rabi Ul Awwal is the most Blessed month not just for Muslims, but for the whole world.

Muslims worldwide celebrate the arrival of the month by holding Naat Mehfils and events. This is the month of abundance blessings and we should take as much advantage as we can. By organizing naat mehfils and distributing food or sweets to the people is one of the best ways to get blessing. Naat mehfil is held the whole night till Fajr prayer on 12th Rabi Ul Awwal followed by a parade after Asr prayers. These tow events on 12 Rabi Ul Awwal are very important and carry enormous blessings on the participants. It is also important to recite as much Durood Sharif as possible during this month as the blessings are enormous. Those who celebrate Eid Milad Un Nabi please our Prophet which in turn satisfies Allah.

Just remember one thing, On the Day Of Judgement when Allah will be deciding our fate based on our worldly deeds, no one will intervene or plead with Allah to save us from fire other than Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). If you have committed more sins than good deeds then Allah will order the Angels to send you to Hell, but it will be Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) who will request and beg Allah to forgive you and save you from the fire. Even though Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) will have no relation with you or know you personally, he will try to save you because you are a Muslim. The day when the whole Muslim Ummah understands this, no one ever will say it is bidat to celebrate Eid Milad Un Nabi. The more blessings we send to and have love for Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), the more it will help us on the Day of Judgment. May Allah open the minds of the Muslim Ummah and make them understand the importance of celebrating Eid Milad Un Nabi and sending blessings to Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
