Commemorating Maulidur Rasul
Muslims need to learn and commemorate Maulidur Rasul and the struggle endured by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in upholding the Islamic law. The narration of the personality of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who always practised moderation must be embodied in daily life. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs & Alumni), Professor Dato’ Dr. Yuserrie Zainuddin said that the sacrifice of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions blessed us with Iman and Islam today.
“The celebration of Maulidur Rasul is not just an annual event, but rather a manifestation of our love for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) especially in the context of leadership.
“In the context of service, we as staff or students have a lot of lessons and values from the biography of the Prophet to integrate into daily activities,” he said during the officiation of the university-level Maulidur Rasul celebration on 11 December 2019.
Also in attendance were the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic & International), Professor Ts. Dr. Mohd Rosli Hainin and the Director of the Islamic and Human Development Centre (PIMPIN), Dr. Mahyuddin Ismail. Themed ‘Negara Rahmat Ummah Sejahtera’, this university-level Maulidur Rasul celebration gathered more than 500 UMP associates in a parade involving 21 contingents at the Student Activities Centre, UMP Pekan. The event was resumed with a special lecture by the Assistant Director, Division of Family Islamic Law, Pahang Islamic Religious Department (JAIP), Ustaz Muhammad Amin Abd Mutalib, entitled “Mencintai Rasulullah Hingga ke Syurga” and a qasidah from Tahfiz Centre Ribat Al-Mustafa, Sungai Karang Kuantan.
