Sunni Muslims observe the Prophet Muhammed's (also known as Mohammed or Muhammad) birthday on the 12th day of the Islamic month of Rabi' al-awwal, while Shi'a Muslims mark it on the 17th of this month. Muhammed is believed to be the prophet in islam and the last one.
What Do People Do?
There are mixed beliefs on how one observes Muhammed's birthday. Some people see the Prophet's birthday as an event worthy of praise. Others view the celebration of birthdays as contradictory to Islamic law. Both sides cite the Hadith (narrations originating from the words and deeds of the Prophet Muhammed) and events from Muhammed's life to support their views.
Mawlid, or Milad, is celebrated with large street parades in some countries. Homes and mosques are also decorated. Some people donate food and other goods for charity on or around this day. Others listen to their children read out poems about events that occurred in the Prophet Muhammed's life. Mawlid is celebrated in this way in many communities across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, or Australia.
Talk about superstitions & violence in islam
We just had a very nice talk/ seminar about how superstitions controbute to the wrong violent and ignorant actions in name of islam. as muslims it is one of our main duties to understand how our believes are shaped and how healthy we think and understand subjects. Thats why we hold these events and talks to go deeper into what has shaped what we belive and how close we are to the true islam and what health means in islam as a core believe.

Gathering, distributing and donating books.
April 9th Amherst Common.
“Interfaith concert” is an interfaith event in which music bands from different religions perform their sacred songs in a single concert. In spite of many other interfaith events in which people just discuss and talk about their beliefs, the idea behind this event is to unite different religions with the help of the common language of music and gather them around religious experience rather than belief. We think that the experience people gain through performing sacred music is common in different religion, though in verified belief systems.

May there be a world in which wisdom and knowledge is widespread and ignorance and unawareness is eradicated. The Hajj, is one of the most important rituals of Muslims. However, the Quran, Muslim’s holy book, has mentioned some conditions for performing it. If any of those conditions is not satisfied, the Hajj is not mandatory and the Muslims person shouldn’t perform the Hajj.
