mawlid an nabi

أن إبليس رن أربع رنات حين لعن وحين أهبط وحين ولد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وحين أنزلت الفاتحة

Iblis cried loudly four times; first when Allah declared him as cursed, second when he was thrown out, third when the Prophet  (peace and blessings be upon him) was born and fourth when Surat al-Fatiha was revealed.

[Ibn Katheer’s al-Bidayah wan-Nihaya]


Do any of you know anything about an old Palestinian festival called “Birth of the Prophet Reuben” or “Mawlid el Nabi Rubin”? It was celebrated in Southern Yaffa before 1948 and it’s considered one of many Palestinian religious   festivals that died after 1948

“For good health, control your diet, for good
soul, control your sins, and for good faith, send
blessings upon the Prophet ﷺ.”

~ Imam Al Ghazzali رحمه الله

Narrated ‘Umar (radhiAllāhu 'anhu):

I heard the Prophet (ﷺ) saying, “Do not exaggerate in praising me as the Christians praised the son of Mary, for I am only a Slave. So, call me the Slave of Allāh and His Apostle.”
