  • A Local's Guide: Top 7 Things to do in Lahore, Pakistan

    Every country has a heart. For Pakistan, it's Lahore – a beautiful cultural city in the center of Punjab.

These are the best things to do in Lahore.   1. Start your Journey by rejuvenating your soul at the Al-Hafiz Masjid Image Credit: Abuzar Xheikh on Unsplash What can be better than offering Salath at one of the many beautiful mosques of Lahore? Built near the Lahore International Airport, the Al-Hafiz Masjid is a great place for Muslim tourists flying in the city to offer their first Salath at.

The golden age of the Mughal's dominion saw Lahore become the capital of the empire, and today, the ruins of Mughal construction testify to their enduring, timeless grandeur. If you're a fancier of art in historical sights, Lahore's grand history will have you traveling time. No visit to Lahore is complete without a trip to the famed Shalimar Gardens.

Today, the Mosque is on every Muslim tourist's must-see list and is definitely one of the best places to visit in Lahore! It has a vast courtyard with the sun gleaming on the marble domes. The best time to visit this Mosque is early in the morning, as less crowd helps you explore the Mosque in solitude. Try offering at least one of your Salaths here, as it is an experience on its own.

Wandering through the cultural hub – the Anarkali bazaar Image Credit: kanwar Taimoor on Unsplash Beloved by tourists — and rightly so — this is one of the best places to visit in Lahore, particularly if you're looking to stock up on souvenirs! At the Anarkali bazaar, shopkeepers peddle everything from hand-worked Khussas (traditional footwear of India and Pakistan) to ethnic jewelry and everything in between. There are several different mosques and halal food restaurants nearby, each of them not more than a short rickshaw ride away.   6. Enjoying the architect of Lahore's modern drama tradition at the Rafi Peer theatre and AlHamra Arts Council Image Credit: Khalid Mahmood, CC BY-SA 3.0, via Wikimedia Commons The best way to experience Lahore's culture is through seeing the locals perform theatrical art.

  • Rabi' al-awwal: The Significance and Mawlid

    The blessed month of Rabi’ al-awwal is a month that is significant to Muslims around the world. According to most reports Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was born this month and also passed away this month. Some Muslims across the world celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) which is also known as Mawlid or Milad depending on the region you are from. For many, the month holds much significance and importance along with the other important months of the Islamic Hijri Calendar. The word “Rabi’ al-awwal” translates to “the first spring” in Arabic with “Rabi’” meaning spring and “al-awwal” meaning the first. The month however is not related to the spring season. Following the Islamic Hijri Calendar, month naturally falls at different times of the Gregorian Calendar year. The third month in the Islamic Hijri Calendar after Muharram and Safar, Rabi’ al-awwal is a month that is closely linked to the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW).   Significance Maulid or Milad Known as many different names across the world, Mawlid is the observance by some Muslims of the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW). This year, 2020, it is expected to fall on the evening of 28 October. This is one of the main reasons why the month of Rabbi’ Ul Awwal is seen to be one of the most significant months in the Islamic Hijri Calendar. The Prophet (SAW) was born in Makkah on a Monday in the month of Rabbi’ Ul Awwal. When the Messenger of Allah (SAW) was asked about fasting on Mondays. He replied, “That is the day on which I was born and the day on which I received Revelation.”[Sahih Muslim (1162)] The birthplace of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is reported to be this small building near the Kaaba in Makkah. Today, the building has been converted into a library. Image Credit: Still from Umrah Hajj on Youtube Hijrah Another significant event that happened during the month of Rabbi’ al awwal is the Hijrah of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) with his companion Abu Bakr (RA) from Makkah to Madinah. The same Hijrah that the Islamic Hijri Calendar was based on. This hijrah was a significant event in Islamic History as it was also when Prophet Muhammad (SAW) united the tribes of Yathrib which later became Madinah, one of the holiest places on Earth, a Haramayn. On their journey to Yathrib, or as we know it now, Madinah, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and his companion Abu Bakr (RA) also built the first-ever masjid. Located in the town of Quba, the masjid is still standing today. Passing of the Prophet (SAW) Rabbi’ Ul Awwal was also a sad month for Muslims because on a Monday, 12th Rabi’ al awwal 11 AH, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) passed away. It has been reported that even though the Prophet’s (SAW) passing was expected because of his illness, it was still shocking and a calamity for the ummah. Image Credit: Adli Wahid on Unsplash   Remembrance Rabbi’ Ul Awwal is a great time to remember and be grateful for the blessing that is Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to guide us all to the one true path. Even though there are no specific deeds recommended during Rabbi’ al awwal, perhaps reciting and understanding the Quran is a great way to get to know our beloved Prophet (SAW) better. …I said to Aisha (RA), “O mother of the believers, tell me about the character of the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him.” Aisha (RA) said, “Have you not read the Quran?” I said, “O course.” Aisha (RA) said, “Verily, the character of the Prophet of Allah was the Quran.”.[Sahih Muslim (746)] Or another way is to read the Al-Seerat an-Nabawiyyah / Seerat or the biographies of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) to really strengthen love for Islam and our iman. Let us follow the advice of our beloved Prophet (SAW) and may Allah (SWT) give us ease and guidance to perform our ibadah and forgive our sins. In Shaa Allah....
