Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

The Prophet’s Birthday

12-12-prophet-birthdayAlthough celebrations of the birthday of the prophet Muhammad are controversial in some denominations of Islam, most – especially the Sunnis – celebrate the day with readings of the Koran, educational meetings with others outside the faith, the sharing of food, and in some cases parades and processions. To the over 600,000 Muslims living in New York City, we wish you Happy Mawlid.
