Milad (birthday) Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin (20th Rabi al-Akhar)

    On the 20th of Rabi al-Akhar, the 4th month of the Islamic calendar, members of the Dawoodi Bohra community celebrate the birthday (milad) of Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin. It is a joyous occasion preceded by numerous days of activities and programmes ranging from asbaq (traditional gatherings for the dissemination of religious knowledge) to cleanliness drives, food drives, business expos, exhibitions and environmental awareness campaigns among others. After succeeding his late respected father as the head of the community, His Holiness Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin resolved to celebrate his own birthday (milad) on his father’s birthday in his remembrance and as a testament to his 50 years of exemplary service to the community.
