Minnesotan Muslims to Commemorate Prophet Muhammad's Life

Posted by: Fedwa Wazwaz under Education and literacy Updated: February 18, 2011 - 6:01 AM

Tuesday, February 15th was the birthday of Prophet Muhammad, upon him peace and blessings.  Throughout the world - many Muslims celebrate his birth by having events to remind Muslims of his character and great sacrifices he made for humanity. 

On CelebrateMercy.com, Muslims from all over the world, including Minnesota will login and listen to webcasts by many leading scholars, artists and intellectuals - exploring the prophet's life and his prophetic journey.

In addition, the commemoration of his birth and life, upon him peace and blessings, will be the topic of a few events within the Twin Cities beginning today, Feb 18-19.

Today, at 7PM - "Attaining Good Character," co-sponsored by the Islamic Center of Minnesota in Fridley, will look at the prophet's character and remind Muslims of their duty to strive to that ideal.

The main speaker of these local events is Shaykh Muhammad Al-Ninowy.

Shaykh Al-Ninowy acquired knowledge in many of the Islamic sciences.  He particularly specializes in the fields of Hadeeth (sayings and actions of Prophet Muhammad) and Tawheed (Islamic monotheism).  Besides a strong knowledge in Islamic sciences and disciplines, he is scholar on Islamic spirituality. 

He was invited to the Twin Cities to fulfill one of his objectives and goals from his education: to preach tolerance, peace, mercy and understanding within the Muslim community and with non Muslims - through education.

With the exception of tonight’s event, all events are free and open to the public.  They will take place at various locations within the Twin Cities.  Below are the details:
