Kuwait City, 12th September:
Ministry of Kuwait announced 28th September (Thursday) as public holiday.
29th September Friday Holiday
30th September Saturday Holiday
Kuwait Cabinet, on 11th September Monday, announced that Thursday, September 28th will be a holiday to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
What is the prophet’s full name?
Muhammad’s full name is Abū al-Qāsim Muḥammad ibn ‘Abd Allāh ibn ‘Abd al-Muṭṭalib ibn Hāshim.
Do all Muslims celebrate Muhammad’s birthday?
No, not all Muslims do. Some branches of Islam, such as Wahhabi and Salafi, do not. In Qatar and Saudi Arabia, celebrations are not held.
How many times is the celebration held?
This holiday may be celebrated twice because of the Islamic Calendar’s 11-day difference from the Gregorian calendar.
Muslims commemorate Mawlid, or Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday, during ‘Rabi’ al-Awwal,’ the third month of the Islamic calendar.
This year, it takes place on September 28.
Because it marks the birth anniversary of Islam’s founder and the proclamation of the Quran’s first verse, this day is honored by many countries with significant Muslim populations as an official holiday.
The Shia community celebrates the event on the 17th of the month, but the Sunni community celebrates it on the 12th.
It’s a day to gather and celebrate the founder of one of the world’s most significant religions with millions of followers.
What is the exact date of Prophet Muhammad birth?
He was born on 12 Rabiulawal (29 August 570 CE), the third month of the Muslim calendar. The prophet died on his 63rd birthday.
The prophet’s birthday celebrations were first observed in the 12th century, often followed by a month of festivities.
In Singapore, the celebrations used to involve large-scale parades.
PROPHET MUHAMMAD’S BIRTHDAY TIMELINE
The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) is born on the 12th day of Rabi’ al-Awwal in the holy city of Mecca.
A year after the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and his mother, Aminah bint Wahb, reunite following the traditional separation after birth, she passes away.
The earliest known Mawlid text is created, most likely in Persia.
Al-Khayzuran turns the house where Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) was born into a place of prayer, one of the earliest records of a Mawlid celebration.
