Thousands attend Grand Moulood

03 February 2014, 12:06
Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (CTIEC) organized a prestigious Grand Moulood on February 02, 2014, which was attended by over thousand of devotees from across the City of Cape Town.

The proceedings of the event got underway with the "Juloos" March in honor of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to mark the auspicious occasion of the birth of the Holy Prophet.

Under the umbrella of Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre, the peaceful Walk proceeded from CTIEC to the suburban part of the area, through 11th Avenue of Eagle Park, and finally climaxed at the Masjidul Kareem Centre. Carrying Flags and defying the extreme heated
temperatures, men, women, and children turned up in huge numbers to mark the blessed occasion with the message of peace, tolerance, and peaceful co-existence.

As sounds of nasheeds, and salutations filled the summer air of Cape Town, the massive crowd marched through the streets, expressing their love to the Holy Prophet and sharing the happiness with the bystanders
and onlookers lining the footpaths along the route. Messages were passed out to all the children, and the message of peace and tolerance given by the Holy Prophet (SAW) was conveyed to the accompanying
parents by sayings on banners. As the crowds descended at the Masjidul Kareem, dua was recited to mark the end of the first session of the Grand Moulood 1435.

The second session began with the recitation from the Holy Quran by a student of The Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre followed by presentation of Naats by Many local Naat reciters including students of various Madressas, including the young Sayed Haseenuddeen and Yaseen Anthony who mesmerized the audience with their melodious voices.

Various guests attended the event, these included Khalifa Qasim Ashrafi, Guest Lecturer Khalifa Sheikh Hassen Walelle Of Milnerton ,Hafez Zaid Sayed, Moulana Faisal Lillah, Sheikh Sayed Noor Ad Dusuqi,
Sheikh Qasim Khotatso, Sheikh Yaseen, Sheikh Yusuf Nahimana, Sheikh Osama Samra Ebrahim Al Azhari, Sheikh Umar Yusuf, Sheikh Imtiyaaz and many other groups including the Sunni Sufi Sayyids of South Africa.

In the speech on the occasion,Principal of Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (Allama Moulana Sayed Imraan Shah Ziyaee) said that the way people remained in attendance calmly and with full devotion
despite the heat demonstrated the fact that Cape Town is a place of lovers of the Holy Prophet (SAW). He said that the Grand Moulood held under the banner of CTIEC conveyed a message of love and peace in a
suffocating environment marked by sectarianism, lawlessness and fake people. He delivered a very argumentative and enlightening talk on the
imperatives of respect, reverence and love of the Holy Prophet (SAW). Moulana Sayed said that one's faith could never be complete unless one
loved the Holy Prophet (SAW) with full devotion. He said that the life of the Companions was practical manifestation of respect, obedience and love of the Holy Prophet (SAW). He further added that the blessed
lives of the Companions would continue to serve as beacon of light till Day of Judgment. He said that CTIEC was playing a key role in the promotion of love of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and the entire life of the Educators and Learners of CTIEC will continue to be dedicated to this cause.

CTIEC Spokesperson Sayed Ridhwaan Mohamed Ziyaee Speaking about this blessed occasion said that he never saw such a big and organized gathering anywhere in the Southern Suburbs fully charged with the love of the Holy Prophet (SAW). He extended his special thanks to the people of Cape Town and the participants of the event on their attendance despite weather conditions. He further said that CTIEC had
attained to a status of significant reference for the promotion of love of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and spreading the culture of Prophetic love in South Africa. He concluded by saying that the love of the Holy
Prophet (SAW) was the most precious asset of every Muslim and follower.

Guest speaker Khalifa Sheikh Hassen Wallele (Imam o Khateeb of Milnerton Jummah Masjid) said that if we wanted to regain our lost glory, then we needed to become embodiment of love of the Prophet (SAW),he said that the arrangement of Grand Moulood was of immense importance to strengthen our relationship with the person of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Khalifa drew the attention of those who thought that CTIEC exaggerated the greatness of the Holy Prophet should know that neither is the greatness of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) limited, nor can it be limited. On this day we have witnessed how important it is to connect to our creator Allah (SWT) and to at all-times, uphold the
legacy of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The program concluded on the offering of Durood and greetings on the Holy Prophet (SAW), Dua, Zohar Salaah , thereafter all guests were served lunch before leaving.

The CTIEC - Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre thanks all for attending and assisting during the Grand Moulood 1435 in Cape Town.

The Grand Moulood in Johannesburg is Scheduled to take place on 16 February 2014 in Lenasia South .
