The Intentions for Attending Mawlid Gatherings

  1. To attend a gathering to invoke blessing and prayers upon the Prophet ﷺ.
  2. To attend a gathering which the scholars encourage people to attend.
  3. To listen to an account of the life of al-Mustafa – The Chosen One ﷺ.
  4. To attend a gathering of counsel and guidance.
  5. To implement what you have heard of the Muhammadan characteristics.
  6. To occupy your time in what is good.
  7. To increase the number of people of truth.
  8. So that Allah may grant you the Prophet’s ﷺ character and qualities, as described in the mawlid.
  9. So that through your attendance you are able to fulfil some of your duties towards the Envoy ﷺ.
  10. So that you will be ennobled by Allah with a vision of the Prophet ﷺ.
