On 13th January 2016 celebrating the Birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon Him and His Family), Shaykh Arif participated at the ‘Love Muhammed campaign’ at Baab-ul-Ilm Leeds. This event in commemoration of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was designed to bring ‘all Muslims from all Islamic religions and all Islamic Communities under one commonality’ and under the principle of Muhammad (pbuh), the final messenger and the prophet of Mercy.
Prior to the event Muslims of all ages gave out roses as gifts to the people of Leeds as a sign of solidarity and unity and peace. Followed by Love Muhammad Unity event, where alongside many speakers, Shaykh Arif Abdulhussein gave a powerful and emotive speech about unity across faith schools and promoted the growth of human beings to godliness and God-centricity.
Love Muhammad is a global campaign that seeks to unite communities together in their love and adoration for the final Messenger Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.
The campaign actively seeks to bring together Sunni and Shia communities from around the globe with the objective of promoting Unity and introducing the holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as the unifying element instead of focusing on theological differences. Love Muhammad has partnered with a number of organisations who host various events promoting the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad through talks, discussions, poetry, song, storytelling and social action projects during the month of Rabi Al Awwal each year.
