The Grand Moulood is all set to take place on the 16 Rabi ul Akhir 1435 (16 February 2014) with traditional fervour in Lenasia South.
Sayed Ridhwaan Mohamed, Spokesperson of CTIEC, threw light on the details of the Grand Moulood in his media interaction to brief the media about preparations of the event. He said that the distinguished religious, social and political personalities, renowned Na’t Khawans, scholars and intellectuals would attend the Grand Moulood. The chief highlight of The Grand Moulood is the keynote Lecture of Mufti e Azam South Africa Hazarat Allama Mufti Mohamed Akbar Hazarvi.
“This programme will reflect the South African spirit of gratitude for the message and mercy to mankind as brought to us, the Ummah of Muhammad (SAW) during the month of Rabi ul Awal. As Mawlid has been commemorated globally for centuries, we will give recognition to all groups who have maintained the beautiful legacy of celebrating the Mawlid annually in this areas. The Mawlid would thus comprise of renowned and respected Ulema, Qurrah, and community leaders ” he explained.
Moulana Sayed Imraan Ziyaee the Principal of CTIEC – Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre mentioned “This is A Virtuous And Blessed Gathering to Celebrate The Most Beloved Of Allah (SAW) and that is the reason we have embarked on Presenting the Grand Moulood celebrations across South Africa this year including major cities like Johannesburg, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth”
Sayed Ridhwaan Mohamed said that love of the Holy Prophet (SAW) is the basis of our faith, adding that The Younus Family and DUP/CTIEC has been making efforts to spread the love of the Prophet (SAW) for the last 35 years in South Africa. He said that the sight of hundreds of people attending the Moulood Celebrations every year bore witness to the efforts of The Younus Family and DUP/CTIEC in this regard wherein the faithful strengthen their bond with their beloved Prophet by celebrating the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (SAW).
We invite our community of Johannesburg to participate in an event that seeks to rekindle the love of the Prophet. The love of the Prophet (SAW) and celebration of the Mawlid is incumbent upon all Muslims especially upon those who aspire towards his (SAW) way of life. This love is not personal love but rather, the Prophet (SAW) is loved because he symbolises all that is beautiful in God’s creation. His virtues are universal and as such the celebration of his birth is indeed a celebration of humanity.
Plans are on its way for the Grand Moulood 1436/2015 to also take place in Durban, Nelspruit and at Neighboring countries.
