Mercy and Blessings are Revived by the Prophet`s Birth Anniversary

 

In Rabi` Al-Awal of every year, faith and mercy are revived by the Prophet`s birth anniversary indicating the Muslim nation`s connection with the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) who came as mercy for all creatures. Its being the best nation evolved for mankind is by virtue of being attributed to the seal of the Prophets and Messengers (PBUT). From the very moment of his birth, blessings have spread in Makkah, then the area where Halima, who nursed him as an infant, lived, leading to the growth of their crops and their goats pouring milk. Her husband told her, "You have been blessed?" She replied: "By Allah, I hope so." Latter he was raised by his grandfather and uncle and Allah sent the verse: "A. L. R. A Book which We have revealed unto thee, in order that thou mightest lead mankind out of the depths of darkness into light - by the leave of their Lord - to the Way of (Him) the Exalted in power, worthy of all praise!- " {Ibrahim,1}. By this, the pillars of Islam were completed and the moderation, derived from the character of the Prophet (PBUH) and the Glorious Quran, was formed. Allah says {What means}: " We sent thee not, but as a Mercy for all creatures.." {Al-Anbiya`, 107}. This is why this nation has been blessed from its establishment guiding people to the truth, enjoining kindness and forbidding iniquity, believing in Allah alone, and was sent by Allah to take people from the darkness of ignorance into the light of Islam. This theme is attested to in the words of Ibn Amir: "Allah has sent us to take whomever he pleases from worshipping people to worshipping the Lord of the people and from the injustice of religions to the justice of Islam." Here, the idea is that this nation is a blessed one, its goodness is settled and constant, it lights of faith are derived from the guidance of the Prophet (PBUH) and its goodness is embodied in following the commands of Allah  through celebrating good character, enjoining kindness, forbidding iniquity, and believing in Allah alone. Allah says {What means}: "Ye are the best of peoples, evolved for mankind, enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, and believing in God.         " {Al-Emran, 110}. In conclusion, the corner stone of the Muslim nation is the blessings that Allah has placed in it along with being related to the Prophet (PBUH), and this what brings this blessed anniversary to the forefront reminding people of this great blessing conferred upon them and the mercy that Allah has gifted them. This blessing is tantamount to the lantern that lights our path and reminds us of the significance of being connected to the Prophet through following his blessed guidance and approach.
