Every year just as Christian, Muslims celebrate the birth of Prophet Muhammad. However, it changes every year because the Islamic calendar is lunar.

The Prophet’s birthday – known as Eid MIlad ul-Nabi – falls on the 12th or 17th day of the Islamic month of Rabi’ al-awwal.

In Lilongwe, Manzoor Bheda, Chair Board of Trustees Lilongwe Sunni Foundation, said  Muslims apart from celebrating Muhammad’s birth also prayed for good rains for this year.

In  northern city of Mzuzu, hundreds of Muslims  lined the streets as the Muslim community celebrated   their spiritual leader’s anniversary.

In Blantyre. Apostle Timothy Khoviwa a religious aide  of President Peter Mutharika and Mayor of the City  Noel Chalamanda were amongst people who took part in the Ziyara parade.

Prophet Muhammad’s birthday is marked in many ways in different Muslim nations.

Small Gate

The word prophet is rather of the doing than just a name. What did Muhammad prophesy rather reuse of other prophets’ prophesies. Hehehe God forbid. Wider is the gate leading to destruction. They (followers of his teachings) just exist because we want peace nothing else.

Yet it is the fastest growing religion on earth. With their prophet’s birthday parade you will never see any devilish thing happen. No booking of rooms in rest houses, no maximum capacities in bottle stores, no fights influenced by beers, no road accidents due to careless driving due to beers. Why? Because everything is done in a spiritual way. Come 25th December, all the evils will be done in the name of the birth of our savior. What is it on Xmas day that can show that it is a spiritual day? All the evils are planned to be done… Read more »

The devil can not fight himself. The moslem activity is organised by him so he doesn’t fight it. But Xmas is for Christ so the devil uses every devilish way to discredit it. All sons and agents of the evil one are engaged in the activities you have described but Christians celebrate it properly. If yoù see doing what you say here just know those are not Christians. They are religious people just like in Islam. Not all are Moslems. Some are just religious people gathered among Islamic worshippers.


A Malawi I’ve ndi dziko la chi christu tisamasekerere izi. Kodi boma lathe limawapatsilanji mpata umenewu pomwe Ku Middle East a christu sapatsidwa mpata olo ongopemphera.

.When they are in majority they declare Islamic state and any other beliefs are punishable by death
. When they are in minority they claim right to freedom of worship
I fail to locate what they stand for. Perhaps blood thirst terrorists

Courtesy….Hassan Radwan (Muslim > Ex Muslim > Currently an Agnostic Muslim)……. Here is an honest admission by a man who spent at least 50 years as a Muslim before leaving Islam and then classifying himself as an Agnostic Muslim…. “I’m so tired of hearing my fellow Muslims tell me: “Islam is perfect but Muslims aren’t.” I’m sorry but Islam is NOT perfect. It is open to huge interpretations. All with valid claims to be following the Qur’an & Sunna. ISIS are following Islam just as much as Progressive and Liberal Muslims are. In fact, one could argue that they are… Read more »
