Rabi’ul Awwal

Rabi’ul Awwal is the third month of the Islamic calendar and is significant in Islamic history for it is the month in which humanity was blessed by the birth of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The name means the first month/beginning of spring. However since the lunar calendar year 11 to 12 days shorter than the solar year, Rabi’ul Awwal migrates through the seasons.
