The celebrations for the birth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) are initiated during the 3rd month of the Islamic calendar – Rabi-al-Awwal. Sunni Muslims throughout the world traditionally take part in marches to celebrate the event.

Each year the Sheffield Council of Mosques gathers to decide as to which Mosque in Sheffield the march ought to be carried out at. On the 16th of March the event took place in Fir Vale Ghuasia Masjid. Over 1000 people attended from the Sheffield community. People also came from Rotherham, Doncaster and Leeds.

The heavy winds helped spread the Takbirs (chants) around the Fir Vale district; flags were high in the sky and local business representatives provided refreshment during the procession.
