Over 1,400 years ago
the heavens and the earth celebrated the announcement of the birth of
the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). They rejoiced in the
arrival of the long awaited "Chosen One," who was to be the perfect
manifestation of Allah's mercy on earth and a beacon of light for
humanity. He was and still remains the paragon of creation and is
without question the greatest blessing and bounty that humanity has
received from the Creator.
In recognition of this divine blessing, Muslims have celebrated his
birth for centuries with reverence and gratitude. These celebrations,
also known as Mawlid al-Nabi, vary in form, expression and duration
across the many cultures of the Muslim world. In the Indian
subcontinent, the Mawlid is celebrated throughout the city squares
with melodious singing in praise of the Prophet (peace be upon him)
accompanied by food and sweets.
In Indonesia, large processions involving hundreds of thousands of
believers are held along the country's main roads as an expression of
love for the Prophet (peace be upon him). The Moroccans host large
feasts and recite lines of classical poetry in his honor. Similar
practices and traditions have developed throughout other parts of the
Muslim world further infusing cultures and people with a deep-seated
respect and reverence for him. No matter how these celebrations take
place, one thing is certain, in celebrating his birth, his legacy and
his life the Muslim community at large continues to strengthen its
connection to him and thus God.
This DVD captures a night of inspiration from a timeless tradition.
