Birth of our Beloved Prophet
On the 12th of Rabi^ ul-‘Awal of every year an honored and glorified memory shines over the whole world, and is commemorated by the entire Muslim world. Every honest Muslim participates in celebrating such an honorable memory to praise Allah for the blessing and endowment of Prophet Muhammad.
How can one not celebrate this birth that has changed the face of history. This birth was one of the best gifts that one can ever receive. It is because of this Prophet may Allah raise his rank that we became Muslims. What is better than becoming a Muslim is to remain steadfast to Islam and die as a Muslim. We thank Allah for this birth and for making us among the followers of this Prophet.
Only those who have darkness in their hearts deny the permissibility of celebrating this birth, and forbid others from doing so. In fact it is the habit of the hundreds of millions of Muslims all over Asia, Africa, Europe, India, Bangladesh, Fiji, Indonesia, Yemen, Turkey, Pakistan, and the Americas. Only those who do not love the Prophet say that such celebrations are unlawful.
Description of the best of all creations
The Prophet was not extremely tall, nor was he short. He had a white complexion and black hair. The Prophet’s hair was not straight rather it was curly and long down to his shoulders. His aroma was nicer than pure musk itself. He had a clear forehead, long eyelashes, broad shoulders and a firm stomach. The Prophet was fast in his walk, and it was narrated that seeing his face one would think that the sun is rising from it. He was not extreme nor an extremist, he never mistreated those who mistreated him; however, he used to pardon and forgive. Allah subhanahu wa ta^ala has given the Prophet sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam the perfect of manners and the good traits, and has given him also a vast knowledge.
What we have mentioned here is just some of his traits, attributes, and good manners sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam.
