Mawlid Festivals in Egypt

November 9, 2006

An interesting PhD thesis entitled; Snacks and Saints: Mawlid festivals and the politics of festivity, piety and modernity in contemporary Egypt. An account the Mawild of Sayyidah Nafisa (Radi Allah Ta’lah Anha) is mentioned in the work.

“Furthermore, orthodox and popular Islam are, in practice, not separate fields, and what is considered to be correct Islamic doctrine and practice has undergone significant change over the past 150 years.”

May Allah give us all true love for the Blessed and Pure Ahl al-Bayt, Ameen

teri nasl e paak meiN hai bachcha bachcha nuur kaa
tuu hai `ayn e nuur teraa sab gharaana nuur kaa!

Ya Sayyidi Ya Rasul Allah صلي الله عليه و سلم your blessed progeny every child amongst them is one of Nur,
You are the source of Nur and all your clan is that of Nur!
