Watch: Exploring the Significance of Rabi al-Awwal

9/20/2023 8:08 AM

The third month of the Islamic calendar, Rabi al-Awwal, marks some significant events in Muslim history.

This month is directly connected with the Prophet (SAW) in three ways. 

  • The Prophet was born in this month
  • The Prophet made his Hijrah from Makkah to Madinah — an event so great that the Islamic calendar is based on it 
  • The Prophet also passed away during this month.

In the following videos, Ustadh Yasrab Shah explains how the month serves as a reminder of the Prophet's teachings and his role as the final messenger of Islam.
