Those looking forward to this year’s mass moulood will have to pen in the date Wednesday 16 December, following a last minute change. Event organisers Mawlid SA said they received good news this week that the Chief Minister of the state of Perak in Malaysia will attend the event as a special guest, but due to a tight schedule, could not be here next weekend. The event still takes place at the Athlone Stadium from 5pm.
“His entourage arrives on the 13th of December but unfortunately have to leave Cape Town on the 17th December. Thus we are changing the date from the 19th December to the public holiday on Wednesday 16th December to accommodate our esteemed guests,” said Mawlid SA in a statement.
“This change is an opportunity for South Africa to foster great relations between Cape Town, South Afritca and Perak, Malaysia.”
Amongst the guests this year are the Legendary Egyptian Qari Shaykh Ahmad Naa’ina ; His Eminence and Chief Minister of the State of Perak, Malaysia Dato Zambry Abdul Kadir and Shaykh Sayyid Muhammad bin Yahya Al Husaini Al Ninowi from Atlanta.
“MawlidSA will like to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the change and encourage all to attend and spread the message, InshaAllah.”
Mawlid SA is a non-profit organisation whose funding resides on the generosity of sponsors and this year food will be sold at the Mawlid.
“At a time when society is riddled with violence, difficulty and in great need of Unity, Love, Hope and direction, Mawlid SA invites all to the court of Allah where we may celebrate the greatest Mercy and Blessing upon us, our Nabi Muhammad, Peace be upon Him, at Mass Mawlid 1437,” said organisers.
A call has been made to all masajid and community leaders to mobilise their communities to attend. Buses are set to leave from various Masajid around Cape Town and volunteers are at constant work in preparation for this auspicious community event.
