Jashan-e-Eid Milad-un-Nabi 2006

Every year Muslims celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (called Eid Milad un Nabi). Each year, Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC) organizes programs in Canada to celebrate the birth and the life of Allah's last messenger; Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). With the recent cartoon controversy, it is expected that this year Muslims worldwide will celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with unparalleled enthusiasm never seen before. Moreover, the cartoon controversy has proven that a significant number of people in the Western world do not know who Muhammad (peace be upon him) is. There is a need to fill this gap.
This year Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) birthday will be celebrated on 12th Rabi Al Awal (3rd month of Islamic calendar) corresponding to April 11, 2006. ISCC requests all Canadian and the worldwide media organizations to produce programs or write stories on Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the occasion of his birthday celebrations. The birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a national holiday in all Muslim countries except Saudi Arabia. It is also a national holiday in several non-Muslim countries like India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Fiji, etc….
ISCC will be holding International Conferences of Eid Milad-un-Nabi for three months, starting March 30 until June 30, 2006. From Halifax to Victoria, Canadian Muslims and non-Muslims will join hands to celebrate the birth and the life of the Prophet of Mercy, Justice and Freedom; Muhammad (Peace be upon him).
This year the theme of celebrations is; “The Prophet is closer to the believers than their own selves “(Qur’an, chapter 33, verse 6).
