PBUH (Peace Be Upon Him) is a yearly ad-hoc under the NUS Muslim Society. This ad-hoc was started out in 1436 Hijri and is currently in its seventh year. The events conducted under this ad-hoc strive to encourage individuals to know more about our Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in various aspects, including his character, his practices, his teachings, and his sunnah.
The main theme for PBUH 1442H revolves around the Journey to love our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, who is The Greatest Creation of Allah S.W.T.
The Blessed SouL
His ﷺ sublime character and exalted attributes
The Blessed Soul - his ﷺ sublime character and exalted attributes was a talk by Ustaz Mukhtar, who shared about the character and attributes of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. This included Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ etiquettes in his interactions with those around him, including his fellow companions, family, enemies, and other living things (non-humans).
The talk also delved into the prophetic way of communication, especially with fellow human beings, and encouraged attendees to implement these teachings of the Prophet ﷺ in their daily lives.
Carnival: In his ﷺ footsteps
Emulating his ﷺ way of life
In his ﷺ footsteps - Emulating his ﷺ way of life was an interactive carnival, consisting of five stations, where participants learned more about the sunnahs of the Prophet ﷺ and how we can inculcate them in our everyday lives. This builds upon the previous event, which was a talk that covered Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ character and attributes.
Mawlid: The Greatest Creation
Peace and blessings upon our Beloved ﷺ
The Greatest Creation - Peace & Blessings upon our beloved ﷺ was a mawlid event where participants will be able to express their love and remembrance of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, by collectively reminiscing his ﷺ stories and reciting salutations upon him.
Love is a process — a process that comes in stages. Through this final event, we hoped to be able to complete the last phase in renewing our love for the beloved ﷺ; by loving him more than we love ourselves.
LET THE LOVE BLOSSOM
Grand Finale for the Beloved ﷺ
Let The Love Blossom is a two-part episode podcast series addressing the public’s concerns regarding the challenges they have faced in remembering our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. It also served as a platform for them to send in the suggestions that may have worked for them that could work for others.
Guest speaker Ustaz Fizar went through these concerns and suggestions, provided advice accordingly, and delved into other factors that enhanced or acted as a hindrance for us in remembering Prophet Muhammad ﷺ so that the public can learn to love the Beloved ﷺ.
In the first episode of Let The Love Blossom, we go into the various ways of loving a man ﷺ we have never met through several real-life analogies that we may already engage in, and learning how to apply them to loving the Prophet ﷺ.
In the second episode of Let The Love Blossom, we go into the issues raised by the public which includes: love of the dunya, social media, the state of our heart and being, our environment and social circles, and needing to reignite the love for the Prophet ﷺ.
أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ ٱللَّٰهِ
I bear witness that there is no deity but God, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God.
The significance of Rasulullah ﷺ could not be emphasized more when believing in him ﷺ is placed in the Syahada, which is the first of the Five pillars of Islam. The light of our beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is already present in our hearts; it just needs to be stirred. Like a glass of chai, which has sugar at the bottom. If you stir it and drink it like this, you will taste its sweetness. If you don't stir this sugar, you won't be able to taste its sweetness. Such is the love for the Prophet ﷺ. It is present in the hearts.
With these, undergraduates who resonate the calling of spreading knowledge and loving Rasulullah ﷺ volunteered and come together to forge bonds and spearhead events that reignites the love for our prophet ﷺ, present in our hearts.
