According to the Islamic moon calendar the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has been born on the 12th night of the third month Rabī’al-awwal. The day that the Prophet graced the world (pbuh) (arab.: Mawlid an-Nabī; türk.: Mevlid Kandili) is considered as one of the five blessed nights in the Islamic tradition and will be celebrated this year in the night of 22nd December to 23rd December 2015 as the 1445th anniversary. Due to this blessed ocassion IFIS&IZ congratulates all Muslims and wishes that this Holy night might bring peace, solidarity, justice and mercy to all mankind. May this day be an occassion to remember the universal message and teachings of the last Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to follow His example even stronger and more sincere.
The noble Qur’an says about Prophet Muhammed (pbuh): “And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds“ (Qur’an: 21/107) and says about Him that He has the complete character and therefore is a perfect example (al-uswat al-hasana) for all people: “There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.“ (Qur’an: 33/21)
