Rabi` Al-Awwal is the happiest time of the year because:
- It is the Month of the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam
- It is the Season of Celebration the Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and Commemorating his Birth.
- He is the Paragon of Creation.
- He is the Greatest manifestation of Divine Mercy in all of Creation.
All the Mercies we receive … it is because of the Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam … and it is through him … He (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) is the Distributor of the Mercy and Bounty of Almighty Allah to all the Creation of Allah…
Therefore we express the Greatest Happiness at the time of his coming.
It is the position of the Ahlus Sunnah Scholars of these past 14 centuries.
