We are Commanded to Know Our Prophet (s.a.w.)
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Ustadz Fakhruddin Owaisi at-Tijani said, as Muslims, we are Commanded to know our Prophet (s.a.w.): about his life, about his miracles, about his birth, about his manners, about his faith, about his signs, ayat wa dala’il, about his seclusions, about his worship and so much more. This knowledge is an obligation for every Muslim. What is better than celebrating and remembering his birth, which represents the essence of his life, in order to acquire knowledge of his life? To remember his birth is to remind us of everything else about him. This causes Allah (s.w.t.) to be Pleased with us because then we will be able to know the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) sirah better, and we will be better able to take the Prophet (s.a.w.) as an example for ourselves, to correct ourselves, and to imitate him. That is why the celebration of his birthday is a Great Favour Sent to us.
