On Saturday 16th May 2015, in over 50 countries, the Islamic Education and Research Academy (iERA) have organised an international event entitled the ‘Global Messenger Day’ with the aim of sharing the life, teachings and values of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with the general public.
Volunteers in London and other local community groups in other major cities around the world will be coming together under the ‘Who Do You Love?’ banner, to go out and compassionately explain why more than 1.6 billion people around the world, from every possible race, ethnicity, nationality, colour and background love the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
This landmark event taking place from San Francisco to Hong Kong and everywhere in between, is a pivotal moment in the dialogue about Islam as thousands of Muslims seek to intelligently articulate why they practice Islam and follow the example of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in thought, word and deed.
At a time of misconceptions and misinformation regarding who the Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) was and what he stood for, iERA felt it was important to convey his message of mercy, compassion and truth, for the betterment of the whole of humanity.
More importantly, many don’t understand why Muslims love the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) so dearly, and how loving him is the gateway to attaining Divine love.
