Allama Iqbal beautifully said:
Wo dana-e-subul, khatam-ur-rasul, maula-e-kul jis ney
Ghubar-e-rah ko bakhsha farogh-e-wadi-e-seena
Nigah-e-ishq-o-masti main wohi awwal wohi aakhir
Wohi Quran, wohi Furqan, wohi Yasin, wohi Taha
Theres a beautiful story from the life of Ala Hazrat Imam Ahmed Raza that touched my heart. Before he was about to die he told his companions, followers, students and family to dig his grave very deep, deep enough for a man to stand in it. They asked him why? his reply was that when his grave is blessed with the presence of Maula-e-Kul(SAW), when the question is asked to Ahmed Raza about who the man is to him and what does he have to say about him. Ahmed Raza will not lie down and reply Ahmed Raza will stand up and reply 'Mustapha Jaan e Rehmat par lakhoon Salam!'
I could sit here all night just trying to explain what my heart feels right now, how id happily live the rest of my life blind and without the use of my body just to get a glimpse of our beloved Prophet Muhammed-e-Mustapha(SAWW).
Itd be really nice if all of you contributed to this thread by sharing what the beloved Prophet(SAWW) means to you. Id politely like to ask if you could limit the amount of Naats posted, although Naats are beautiful it gets annoying having Naat after Naat.
Rabi'ul Noor Mubarak to you all. I hope you all enjoy remembering and celebrating the coming and most importantly the life of the reason everything was created, that blessed life of Hazrat Muhammad(SAWW)

Humaray moun mein ho aisee Zubaan Khoda na kare.
I hope God allows the Prophet's intercession for us on the day of Judgement.
Thank you Allah for showing mercy to us through Mohammed p.b.u.h.

Jeena Marna Ya RasoolAllah!
Many Sunni Scholars have said part of the reason Hazrat Musa(AS) kept sending RasoolAllah(SAWW) back to the courts of the Almighty was purely because Hazrat Musa(AS) was soo lost in doing the zyaarat of the eyes that had seen ALlah(SWT).

"The reward of celebrating the birth of the Beloved Prophet sal Allahu 'alayhi wa sallam is that through his mercy, Allâh Almighty enters these people into Jannah-tun-Na'eem. Muslims have always celebrated the birth of the Beloved Prophet sal Allahu álayhi wa sallam by cooking feasts, inviting guests and by giving charity in abundance. They express their happiness and spend open-heartedly. Through the blessing of this, Allâh Almighty showers his blessings upon them."

It was on that blessed name of Muhammad that Hazrat Adam(AS) was granted forgiveness, it is that blessed name that is written on the walls on Jannah, it is on that blessed name that Allah has built Imaan upon. It is that blessed person's door that the angel of death knocked on and asked for permission, even giving an option to RasoolAllah(SAWW) before taking them away from this physical world.
Just on the basis that it is Muhammad(SAW) that will intercede for his Ummah, which he holds soo dearly, on the day of Qiyamah is enough of a reason for us to remember this great blessing, this great gift our Lord sent to us. Soo many great men are remembered by what they achieved in their lifetimes, our beloved Prophet(SAW)'s achievements haven't even stopped yet.
It is the blessed Noor of RasoolAllah(SAWW) that on the day of Qiyamah will help us cross the bridge in to Jannah. Imagine the power of that Noor. Imam Qastalani(ra) qoutes a narration from Imam Zain Ul Abideen(RA), who narrated from his father Imam Hussain(AS), who in turn narrated from his father Maula Ali (AS) that the Prophet Muhammad(SAWW) said that his Noor was made 1400 years before the creation of Hazrat Adam(AS). SubhanAllah

"As there is no darkness in the moonlit night so is Mustafa, the well-wisher, bright."
His gait was firm and he walked so fast that others found it difficult to keep pace with him. His face was genial but at times, when he Sallaho Alhe waslam was deep in thought, there there were long periods of silence, yet he Sallaho Alhe waslam always kept himself busy with something. He Sallaho Alhe waslam did not speak unnecessarily and what he said was always to the point and without any padding. At times he Sallaho Alhe waslam would make his meaning clear by slowly repeating what he Sallaho Alhe waslam had said. His laugh was mostly a smile. He Sallaho Alhe waslam kept his feelings under firm control - when annoyed, he Sallaho Alhe waslam would turn aside or keep silent, when pleased he Sallaho Alhe waslam would lower his eyes [Tirmidhi].
Ya Allah show us the vision of your beloved in our dream.......
As salatu wassalamu alaika Ya Sayyidi Ya RasoolAllah

Although its a 25 minute clip its well worth watching. Allama Pir Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani explains beautifully about how the actual birth of our Beloved Aqa (SAWW) was enough to convince Moula-e-kul(SAWW)'s uncle Hz Abbas(RA) that the religion of Islam will be Haq. Also about how with ease our Beloved Aqa(SAWW) moved the sun with his index finger.. Allah bestowed soo much on his most beloved, who distributed gems to humanity.

Rev. R. Bosworth SmithMohammed and Mohammedanism, London, p 92.
Out of love for Muhammad (s) they say, "O Ahmad! You are the brightness of the moon and sun."
But verily i say, "O Beloved! Thy beauty is beyond the scope of tongue and pen to describe..Had thou been among the ladies instead of Yusouf (a.s), they would have slashed their hearts instead of fingers...this is why the greatest lovers say, 'We prefer Madinah to Eden.
Mohammad Yasin Owadally
I'm actually finding it quite difficult to put into words what my heart feels when I try to appreciate the magnitude of having Rasullallah (saw) in my life. It gives me goose pimples and the most amazing but simplistic sense of satisfaction and contentment. Where do I even start?!
I KNOW and am absolutely CERTAIN that regardless of what HAS happened, IS happening and WILL happen throughout my life, when I am down in the dumps or flying high, or in the deepest, darkest pit of despair or rolling in happiness my source of comfort, stability and re-assurance is Allah. But there is a REASON for this STABILITY in my life and that is in the form of the most beautiful of Creation, the guiding light, the solid rock who IS there for me and EVERYONE and EVERYTHING else - Ya Rasullallah (saw) words are just not enough!
Chamak tujhse se paate hain sub paane waale, mera dil bhi chamka de chamkaane waale....
I'm at work and I feel so elated that someone has started such a beautiful thread!
Pa ra pa papa........I'm loving it!
How can ANYONE have an issue with celebrating the birth of the Mercy to the entire Universe? This is just baffling and totally absurd. Anyway, forget the haters, spread the love.
