2 January 2015/10 Rabi-al-Awal 1436


As the Muslim community approaches the 3 January 2015/12th day of Rabi-al-Awal which is the day on which the Muslim community commemorates the birth, life and message of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon Him and his family), we convey our best wishes and pray for abundance of blessings to our community who have for centuries made outstanding efforts towards keeping the spirit and unity of expressing love for the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and His family) alive.

It is with this spirit of love and respect that we welcome the decision of the Cape Minstrels who have cancelled their programs for the 3-4 January 2015 out of reverence for the day of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him), the Mawlid. May their decision to join the gatherings of Mawlid taking place in the various mosques and halls in Cape Town benefit them, grant them success and keep the community protected from any harm that may befall them.

As we join the millions around the globe during this blessed month, who likewise prepare for their nations expressions of love for the final messenger, we see and witness the golden thread that unites the hearts of each Muslims during their daily activities. It is the obedience to God Almighty, the love for the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and the following of his noble example.

Whilst the community will be hosting Mawlid commemorations daily during this month, the One Messenger, One Ummah/Nation Mass Mawlid will be taking place at the Athlone Stadium on Sunday, 18 January 2015 at 16h00.
