On Sunday, thousands of Hui people from Hui ethnic communities in Sanya’s Fenghuang town, including many Hui tourists, dressed in their festive best and gathered together to celebrate the holy festival Mawlid al-Nabi.
Mawlid al-Nabi (also spelled Mawlid an-Nabi or Milad al-Nabi), as one of the three major traditional festivals celebrated by Muslims worldwide, is the celebration of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad, the founder of Islam. It is fixed as the 12th day of the month of Rabi I in the Islamic calendar. Mawlid means birthday of a holy figure and al-Nabi means prophet.
Mawlid al-Nabi in 2014 is on Monday, the 13th of January. However, in the Muslim calendar, the holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so Muslims celebrated Mawlid al-Nabi on the sunset of Sunday, the 12th of January. This year is the Prophet Muhammad’s 1,444th anniversary.
During the festival, a Hui Painting and Calligraphy Trade Show was held, and many artists and Hui children treated audiences to a live painting and calligraphy performance.
