Yemen Celebrates Prophet Mohammed’s Birthday Amidst Challenges (Report)
On a blessed day, the birthday of the greatest creation of Allah, Mohammed bin Abdullah, millions of Yemeni people gathered in dozens of squares in a massive and crowded rallies. Despite the size of the suffering, the difficulty of transportation, the severity of the siege, and the comprehensive damage caused by the American-Saudi aggression to the country, and despite the unprecedented misleading media war, all of this did not deter our people from this great presence.
The people celebrated in all its free regions as befits the greatness of the memory of the Prophet’s birthday. They told the whole world that their motivation in their great interaction with this occasion is a faith-driven one. They have deliberately identified their faith with their pure blood and great sacrifices. They told all tyrants of the earth and criminals of the world that they are a people who sanctify their freedom; because it is part of their faith, and they refuse to submit to all arrogant; because they draw their steadfastness from the greatest leader known to history, and the holiest teacher and role model for humanity; The Messenger of Allah and the seal of His prophets Mohammed.
Seventy Square in Sana’a, despite its large area, seemed small in the presence of the noble Prophet. Crowds flocked to it from all directions until you think it is Judgment Day. Everyone is present and their hearts are longing to express their love, magnification, and respect for the Prophet of Mercy Mohammed bin Abdullah may Allah bless him and his family.
The voices are humble drawing inspiration from the biography of the Prophet and what he faced from difficulties and challenges and how he was able to overcome them. This supports us in facing arrogant forces that do not differ from those who stood against the Prophet and fought him with all their might.
Since early afternoon hours, all entrances to Sana’a witnessed queues of cars carrying thousands of guests of Allah’s Messenger may Allah bless him and his family. They were keen to attend early to Seventy Square to celebrate this great religious occasion. Meanwhile, residents of Sana’a headed towards the largest Mohammed festival square individually, in groups or riding horses overwhelmed by sincere faith feelings driven by strong attachment to their Prophet.
In between million crowds there was a white space where Prophet Mohammed’s name was written in green color everyone gathered around it chanting loudly “We are at your service O Messenger Allah”.
The crowds raised banners, affirming the greatness of this occasion. They pledged their loyalty to Allah and His Messenger, insisting on following the Quranic-Mohammed approach when facing the enemies of their nation and Islam. They confronted any attempts to offend the great Messenger and pointed out that the enemies’ attempts to separate the nation from its Prophet will only increase their adherence to the approach of the honorable Messenger Mohammed, may Allah bless him.
Our Yemeni people are at the forefront among the sons of the Islamic nation in their celebration and interest in the memory of Mohammed’s birthday. They have made it a mobilizing station to enhance loyalty for Mohammed, may Allah bless him, as well as to consolidate Islamic concepts brought by him from Allah. They urge imitation of Mohammed, may Allah bless him, as well as gaining knowledge about his blessed career in his movement with the divine message.
Moreover, Yemenis take pride in distinguishing themselves by interacting with Mohammed’s birthday memory; because it is a testament to their faith. They inherit principles of truth, adhering to noble morals, adorning themselves with good spirit, carrying love, reverence, and respect for Mohammed, may Allah bless him. The efforts and attempts of dark misguided forces have not succeeded in changing this good lineage and original affiliation.
