Mawlid Celebration 1445h

On Wednesday the 20th of September, Al Amanah College held a Mawlid celebration where students, staff members and parents came together to celebrate the birth of the best creation Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). The month of the Prophets birth is a blessed month where Muslims around the world gather under one slogan, which this year is ‘Allah the Greatest we thank, for granting Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him the highest rank).

A warm welcome was extended to our special guests, the members from Darunnajah University in Indonesia, who were called to the stage to accept a gift on behalf of the school

. Sheikh Samer Alshafie delivered a captivating religious lesson which enlightened many about the life of Prophet Muhammad and how celebrating his birth is a reminder of exhibiting the values of our beloved religion Islam. Sheikh Muhammad Halabi was then called to the stage to announce the winners of the Mawlid Competition – congratulations to all winners!
