The Cape Town Islamic Educational Centre (CTIEC) organized an inspirational event in honour of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). The Grand Moulood 1441 took place on Sunday 26 January 2020, which was attended by hundreds of devotees from across the City of Cape Town, including few guest from the Gauteng and Kwa Zulu Natal regions.
The proceedings of the event got underway with the Cape Town March For Prophet Muhammed (SAW) to mark the auspicious occasion of the birth of the Holy Prophet.
Under the umbrella of CTIEC led by Moulana Sayed Imraan Shah Ziyaee and the CTIEC Ulama, the peaceful Walk proceeded from CTIEC to the suburban part of the area, through 11th Avenue of Eagle Park, and finally climaxed at the Masjidul Kareem Centre.
Carrying Flags and defying the extreme heated temperatures, men, women, and children turned up in huge numbers to mark the blessed occasion with the message of peace, tolerance, and peaceful co-existence.
As sounds of nasheeds, and salutations filled the summer air of Cape Town, the massive crowd marched through the streets, expressing their love to the Holy Prophet and sharing the happiness with the bystanders and onlookers lining the footpaths along the route. The message of peace and tolerance given by the Holy Prophet (SAW) was conveyed to the masses by sayings on banners. As the crowds descended at the Masjidul Kareem, special dua was recited to mark the end of the first session of the Grand Moulood.
