Mawlid Al Nabi
Night of Mawlid is the night Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) honoured the whole universe with his coming. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) honoured the whole universe with his arrival on the 12th night of Rabi’ al Awwal on a Monday. Thus, the 12th night of Rabi’ al Awwal is the a sacred night in the Hijri Calendar.
In this month, Muslims should try to recite Salawat Sharifah as often as possible, particularly Salat Al-Nariyah, Salat Al-Munjiyyah or Salat Al-Fathiyyah. To derive benefit from the blessings of this holy night, one should pray Tasbih Salah and perform Khatim Al-Anbiya.
Intention to Salat Tasbih this night should be as follows: “O Allah! I intend to pray Tasbih Salah for your sake only. O Allah, in honour of your beloved whom you sent to enlighten the world, the crown of our heads, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam), forgive my sins and grant me your blessings. Allahu Akbar.” (Duas and Ibadahs, Fazilet Publishing
A Quote Form ‘Mawlid Sharif’ (A poem written in the praises of Rasulullah [Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam])
Arrived, the Sultan of the divine knowledge,
Arrived, the source the knowledge of Tawhid (Oneness of Allah).
For the sake of the arrived, moves the universe,
Humans and angels yearning to glimpse his beautiful face.
Such a sacred night is tonight,
His nur (light) turns everything latif (gentle) in universe.
The earth tonight becomes like a paradise,
When Allah showers His mercy onto everything.
Tonight, rejoice the people of the heart,
Tonight, enlivened with the people of the heart.
Mustafa (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) is the mercy to all worlds.
Mustafa (Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) is the intercessor for the sinners.
(Mawlid-Sharif with Nashids and Qasidahs, Fazilet Publishing)
