In a joyous mood:Ma'dinu Ssaquafathil Islamiyya chairman Syed Ibrahim Khaleel Bukhari Thangal leading a rally on the eve of Milad-e-Sharif in Malappuram town on Monday

MALAPPURAM: Milad-e-Sharif, the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammed, will be celebrated by various Sunni mahal committees and madrasas in the district on Tuesday. Most Sunni institutions have chalked out plans to celebrate the occasion.

Members of the Ma'dinu Ssaquafathil Islamiyya and other Sunni organisations such as the Samastha Kerala Yuvajana Sangham and the Kerala State Sunni Students Federation took out a procession through Malappuram town on Monday evening, airing slogans eulogising the Prophet.

Ma'din chairman Syed Ibrahim Khaleel Bukhari Thangal led the march, which began from the District Collector's camp office premises and concluded at Kottappadi. Art forms such as ‘duff muttu' added colour to the rally.

Inaugurating the rally, Mr. Bukhari called upon the people to imbibe the lessons taught by Prophet Mohammed. He reminded the people of their responsibility towards the country.

Arrangements have been made for a mass feast at Valiyangadi here on Tuesday as part of the Milad celebrations. As many as 15,000 people are expected to be served food at Khan Bahdur Nagar, Valiyangadi, on Tuesday. Sayed O.P.M. Muthukoya Thangal, Kazi of Malappuram, will inaugurate the food distribution at 11 a.m.

A mass ziyarat (visit) to the graves of martyrs and Syeds will be held. Even when majority Sunnis are celebrating the Milad day, Salafi groups have been critical of the celebrations.

According to Salafi scholars, celebrating Prophet Mohammed's birth anniversary is ‘un-Islamic' and against the tenets of the Koran and the Hadith.
