Many in Comoros see Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday as more than a celebration of the birth of the “last and greatest prophet”. They also see it as commemorating the birth, or more technically, “revival” of Islam itself.

Buildings both public and private will be decorated festively when Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday arrives. People will also prepare large quantities of food and feast together, while being careful to donate a portion to the needy so they can feast too.

In special mosque services, prayers are recited, and at home, adults read stories of Muhammad’s life out loud to children.
