Saturday 23rd November was a wonderful day for Muslims to spread the Universal Message of Peace and Love by distributing roses and sweets and biscuits in Sheffield City Centre. This coincided with the birth month (Rabbi-ul-Awwal) of their beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW – PBUH).
The city centre event marked Mawlid – one of the most auspicious months of the Islamic calendar – and was part of a number of events arranged by British Muslims across South Yorkshire.
The city centre event was organised by Burngreave based An Nasiha. An Nasiha will be also visiting Pexton Grange nursing home, in Burngreave, on 10th December, to continue marking the birth of the prophet (peace be upon him) were we will be providing gifts and other items to both residents and staff.
