The Holy Birth Week in Turkey

The Week of the Holy Birth is widely observed in Turkey.

At colorful celebrations all over the country, Seminars and conferences featuring the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) will be held as part of the Week of the Holy Birth organization.

Books on the life of the Prophet and copies of the Quran will be handed out. Treats will be offered to the people attending events. Roses as symbol of the Holy Birth will be distributed. Recitations from the Quran will be made.

Holy Birth events and activities are organized to better understand the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and strengthen feelings of solidarity, fraternity and helping in the society around the love of the Prophet.

There are a number of significant days to celebrate in Islam, but the days that are dedicated solely to Islam’s final prophet -the messenger of God, Muhammad the Prophet- is the birth week of the Prophet, which is celebrated between April 14-20.

Islamic Hijri calender is defined in accordance with turning of moon around the world. Because of these calender accounts, Prophet’s birthday comes on different days in the Gregorian Calender.

Leaders of the country, do organize a variety of colorful activities for Holy Birth week all over the country.

Religious Affairs Directorate President Mehmet Gormez, joining celebrations in Diyarbakır in the first week of April, said we need to understand the Prophet, to talk about him and unite around his love more than ever. “Every creation of God is a brother to His other creations. This is the exact opposite view of ‘man is a wolf to [his fellow] man.’”
