Personal Reflections and Advice on How to Connect to the Blessed Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم

Background – Each Winterspring, we have covered a particular theme, and asked our guest scholars to cover particular aspects of it. In previous years, we have looked at an explanation of Qasida Burda, the Shama’il of Imam Ghazali, the Names of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, aspects of the Makkan and Madinan Sirah, the roles of the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, and others.
Aim – This year, we have made a slight change. Instead of each scholar talking about a specific aspect of a theme, they will all be addressing the same one. They will be talking from personal experience, and reflecting on how they have connected to the Prophet (s), how they have been advised to do so by their teachers, and how they would advise us to do so.
Audience Contribution – In addition, we would welcome contributions from attendees about what has helped them to connect to the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم – as this is certainly not something that is specific to scholars!
Practical Advice – Ultimately, the aim this year is to demonstrate that connection to Sayyidina Muhammad (s) – the life-blood of our faith – is possible and actual, even in this day and age, and to provide seekers with a number of methods to facilitate it.

About Winterspring Mawlid

Winterspring Mawlid is a collaborative initiative based in the UK to celebrate the advent of the Best of Creation, Our Master Muhammad (pbuh).

History & Background – The Winterspring Mawlid is an initiative of the Nur al-Habib Foundation: an attempt to unite people in love with the Messenger of Allah (s) at a time when the world celebrates the memory of his blessed arrival. Inspired by the nightly remembrances of Hazrat Ghulam Muhyi al-Din Kazi of South Africa in particular, and the practices of spiritual masters in general, it was first inaugurated in the UK in Rabi al-Awwal 2012.  It is organised and led by Shaykh Dr Asim Yusuf, also known as the munshid Talib al-Habib.

About The Event – The programme was well received and quickly surpassed organisers’ expectations, with each night hosting a full house in addition to numerous attendees joining the live stream from the UK and from around the world.  Currently, between 150-300 men, women and children attend in person each night, with another 100 online, and with the final night hosting over 500.  Over the twelve days, attendees collectively recite over 10 million salawat, in addition to thousands of Sura Yaseen’s.

What We Do – The program is unique: focussed on dhikr and highly participative, commencing with group recitation of Quran and ending with group recitation of the 201 names of the Prophet (s).  Each night, different esteemed scholars deliver short talks around a central text or theme, and a number of classical works have been covered in previous years.  It also features – over the twelve nights – a complete recitation of the only original English Mawlid work: the Soliloquy of the Full Moon.

The Soliloquy of the Full Moon

The Original English Mawlid

‘Dazzling! Will stir love and yearning for Allah’s Beloved (s) in your heart and mind.’   (Shaykh Faraz Rabbani – Seekershub Global)
‘A blessed and magnificent mawlid, beautiful and serene.’  (Shaykh Ahmad Sa’ad al-Azhari)

This is the first ever traditional mawlid work composed in English. Long bereft of an opportunity to truly appreciate classical works about the birth, early life and characteristics of the Prophet (s), English speakers can now enjoy the complete mawlid experience in their own language.

Over 1000 lines of fully metered traditional poetry, and accompanied by six musically scored qasidas by Talib al-Habib, the Soliloquy was composed by its fifteen year old author over the first 12 nights of Rabi al-Awwal 1436.

Over 12 chapters, it covers the names, virtues and lineage of the Prophet (s), the signs and wonders preceding and heralding his advent, his early life, the first revelation, the mi’raj and his blessed characteristics, before a concluding supplication.

It is a must for every home, and can be just as easily recited to one’s children at bedtime as in large formal gatherings. Authenticated by scholars, and entirely in inspiring rhyming verse, it is a truly blessed work.

Bound in a beautiful hardback edition, it has been launched exclusively at Winterspring 2015 and is available online at www.TheEnglishMawlid.com.

  • It is an honour and a privilege to be part of this event. Because of the knowledge I have gained through these sessions, my world has changed, literally! My family dynamics have improved. I have become so self aware as a person and it all has started to make sense. I feel better equipped as a parent, a daughter and sister and teacher.

    Dr Asim is one amazing person. His knowledge is so vast and the way he delivers the lessons is truly amazing. If anyone deserves a Medal of Excellence, it has to be Dr Asim for delivering in an amazing way.  They say that a student never forgets a good teacher. Dr Asim is one teacher I’ll never forget. May Allah bless him and his family and grant him Jannah al Ferdos for all his hard work, Ameen.
