IECRC Milad Program- 26th & 27th February 2010 (Sacramento)

The term Maulud, Maulid, Milad Shareef refers to the celebration of the noble birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him, b. 570 CE) as the Light of Guidance for humanity in general and Muslims in particular.  Traditionally, Muslims always celebrated this day and the night before by remembering the life, events, character, and arrival of the Beloved of Allah, by keeping vigil, singing and reciting qasa’id/Naat (poems describing the attributes of the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhe wasallam), ushering in the dawn, and fasting the day of his birth.  Homes and Masajid were decorated to express happiness.
