On the occasion of Prophet Muhammed’s Birthday (peace be upon him), the Dean of Students Office, Faculty of Dentistry in Tishk International University in Erbil, KRG arranged an event to celebrate this holy day.

A special corner was prepared at the entrance of the Faculty of Dentistry Building, as a tribute to our Holy Prophet. Small gifts and cards with Holly Hadiths were given to staff members, to commemorate the Prophet’s life, teachings, hardships, and his merciful, forgiving character.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is Allah’s (SWT) final messenger, who disseminated the message of love and togetherness to all people. This day is a dedication to the memory of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his divine message, and a reminder to all mankind, of all the significant teachings of our beloved Prophet. A slideshow was held in the Faculty Reception to display Holy Hadiths throughout the day.

Muslims celebrate the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on the twelfth day of the third month, Rabi’ al-Awwal. In many predominantly Muslim countries, Mawlid al-Nabi is a major public holiday. Muslims take this day as an opportunity to honor their beloved prophet and highlight his significant achievements and teachings, and his virtuous character. His teachings still continue to influence believers and instill them with the will to follow the path of righteousness. Each country and community celebrate this day differently. Some celebrate the occasion by organizing events, offering prayers, and exchanging gifts. Others celebrate this day by preparing special meals at mosques and at home with friends and family. In many communities, particularly in the Middle East, streets are often decorated with lights, and food and sweets are distributed to the public.

This year, as per the Gregorian calendar, the celebration began from the evening of October 18 and lasted till the evening of October 19.
