On Friday 15 November 2019, Al Amanah College Liverpool Campus students, teachers and parents gathered today to commemorate the great occasion of the birth of the best of all creations – our master Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him). The Mawlid is a joyful event during which Muslims gather to thank Allah for sending Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him). The Muslims commemorate this event repeatedly every year during the month of Rabee` al’Awwal and in particular on the 12th of Rabee` al’Awwal, which is the day when the Prophet was born. During this event, the Muslims come together, recite Qur’an, praise the Prophet, speak about the honourable life of the Prophet and his attributes, learn about Islam, and serve food.
The Mawlid celebration was officially opened with the Year 12 MC students, Walid Dabboussi and Muhammad Salim Alwan. The occasion was marked with a beautiful recitation from the Holy Qur’an from a talented Year 12 student Bilal El Omari. This was preceded with a truly inspiring poetry and chanting performance by the Primary chanting band. The Mawlid celebration was sparked by a grand entrance led by the school Principal Mr Ayman Alwan carrying the blessed hair of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), he was accompanied with Al-Azhary Imams and the Nawbee band. This was followed with the High School Nawbee band who enlighten and blessed our ears with soothing chants about the best of all creations – our beloved and master Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him).
The Year 6 School Captains Bakr Al Zahab and Mariam Mallah recited an enlightening story of the birth of our Master Muhammad, which is one filled with blessings and lessons which increase our love towards the Prophet. This was followed by the school Imam and Religious advisor Shaykh Amr Alshleh Al-Azahary provided a religious lesson which recognised and reflected on the great occasion of celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad as a good innovation by performing the goods deeds despite the classification of this by some ignorant people as an innovation of misguidance. This was preceded with a beautiful poetic recitation about our love and devotion for the beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) by Year 6 student Nour Musilmani.
This was preceded with the Principal’s closing address Mr Ayman Alwan recognising the efforts of Al Amanah College in teachings its students the true Islamic creed and reflected on the great occasion of celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad as a good innovation. He encouraged to the school and the special attendees to feel proud and empowered by stating the 2019 Mawlid Slogan both in Arabic and English - ‘Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) …. Success through your Guidance’. He also acknowledged the efforts of the school and introduced a gallery of images that had a visual representation of the relics of the Prophet (May Peace and Blessing Peace upon him) and students and parents were given the opportunity to view these beautiful images. He also announced and congratulated the award winners of the Mawlid Competition 1441h with a $50 cash prize and the winning recipients from each cohort included:

Concluding this blessed occasion and celebration, the school’s chanting band enlightened our ears with another lovely Nasheed about our beloved Prophet Mohammed (Peace and Blessings be upon Him). Each primary and secondary student along with their parents and teachers had the opportunity to seek the blessings from the Prophet’s hair (Peace and Blessings be upon Him), this was a moment that the students were able to express their undying love for greatest creation on this Earth. A big thank you and gratitude goes to Darulfatwa for providing this opportunity to the students, parents and teachers.
The school principal Mr Alwan took this opportunity to invite all of our students, their families and friends to attend the Mawlid Celebration in Paul Keating Park Bankstown on Friday 15 November between 7pm -10 pm where live chanting performances and light refreshments will be held to commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him).
Given the many fires that are raging in the state of NSW and the urgent need of the state and the people for rainfall, duly we follow the way of our Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him who, in such situations, used to pray to Allah the Exalted to send rain to the people. Furthermore, the scholars mentioned that in such circumstances of crisis it is beneficial to order the people to repent to Allah and ask His forgiveness.
The Muslims present will be performing a congregational Prayer asking Allah to grant us Rain., which can help and assist in the hardships endured by the drought-stricken conditions faced by many farmers in rural NSW.
A special reminder about attending the Multicultural Mawlid Concert which will be held on Sunday 1 December 2019, starting from 4:00pm, at the State Sports Centre, Olympic Boulevard, Homebush. Muslims representing countries from all over the world gather to watch performances in a range of languages celebrating their love and devotion to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Multicultural Mawlid Concert is open to everyone and entry is free. This is an event that should not be missed.
We thank Allah for making us amongst the best nation, the nation of our Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The birth of our Prophet peace be upon him brought light to the world and brought guidance to humans and Jinn. We look forward to seeing all of our students and families at the Maawlid Celebration and wishing everyone and their families a Mawlid Mubarak insha’Allah!
