This is the procession that passed by my house this morning.
An awesome sight to behold,
No decorated cars,
No beautifully clad marchers,
No loud bands,
A simple parade with a meaningful message,
Non-stop chants of salawat to Rasulullah s.a.w filed the air,
Sombre mood but full of love for the most beloved man that walked the earth.

I was drenched with mixed emotions,
Of deep love for the Prophet who loved his ummah,
Of awe for the people who made an effort to join the moving crowd,
Of shame for not able to join them,
Of confusion for those who labels such celebration as innovation.

Ya Rasulullah s.a.w., we love you!

:) This is nice. I haven't seen any processions here, but in the past week there have been plenty of Maulid events being held that I heard of. I wish I could go to them all... but will have to settle for just the one.. (see the updated bit on my blog) InshaAllah.

Allahumma solli 'ala Muhammad..

We can all make plenty of salawat instead...

;) SK Beserah la....dengan teachers and parents. i was not sure weather orang kampung(OK jugak) joined the procession.

i had joined a few such procession before. the spirit and intention were good but most of the participants were only there just to comply with the directives. they laughed, make jokes, mingled among the opposite sex, did not pay attention to the advice/speech given etc.

As the one by SK Beserah, it was different. no grandiosity, clean face of the school children etc. as this procession was brought by sallehuddin alayubi with an intention to get the muslims together and practice the life of the Prophet, we who observe or participate should give a thought about it, with a goal to be a better muslim practicing the way of the Prophet and the Sahabah in our daily life.

My parents were at a madrasah just this weekend (visiting relative). They said the atmosphere felt like Madinah. Subhanallah.

As nice as procession goes, there is nothing nicer to do to show our love for Prophet Muhammad than to follow his sunnah in each and every aspect of our lives.. processions are direct and clear display of our love for him, but they last maybe an hour or two. Won't you agree? ;)

Comel sungguh budak-budak ni. Macam nak pegi beraya pulak :). It's good to teach our children to love our Prophet saw.
