Rabi Al-Awwal: The Birth of the Beloved

In the blessed month of Rabi al-Awwal, we commemorate the birth of our beloved messenger, Muhammad ﷺ.

It’s a beautiful time to grow closer to Allah by nurturing our love for His Prophet ﷺ and strengthening our practice of the Sunnah.

Increase Your Salawat

إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ وَمَلَـٰٓئِكَتَهُۥ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى ٱلنَّبِىِّ ۚ يَـٰٓأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ صَلُّوا۟ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا۟ تَسْلِيمًا

Indeed, Allah showers His blessings upon the Prophet, and His angels pray for him. O  believers! Invoke Allah’s blessings upon him, and salute him with worthy greetings of peace. ~33:56

Read the Seerah

Many of us underestimate the importance of studying the Seerah in our daily lives. In learning from the Seerah of the Prophet ﷺ, one can learn how the Prophet ﷺ navigated both momentous challenges and blessings.

Apply a New Sunnah

The Prophet ﷺ left us with so many precious Sunnahs which we can strive to embody all year long.

Here is a few easy Sunnahs to adopt as habits: Reciting Ayah-tul-Kursi after every prayer, greeting people with a smile, visiting the sick, fasting the Sunnah days (Mondays and Thursdays).

May our hearts overflow with love and closeness to our Beloved Prophet ﷺ during this blessed month.
