The Month of Rabi-ul-Awwal: marks the birth of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, the last and final prophet of Allah Ta’ala. A personality whose struggles and sacrifices, against every odd, were aimed at liberating and freeing not just a people, nor a nation, but instead humanity at large. What we allude to here is the monumental struggle, spanning 23 years of this impressive life in liberating humankind from the yokes and fetters of the constraints and oppressions of life itself. It is only in this regard that we afford the final prophet of Islam the appellation of “The greatest Saviour & Benefactor of mankind”.
Allah Ta’ala aptly reminds us in the Qur’aanul Kareem of His magnanimous favour in sending Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to mankind where He says:
“Indeed Allah had conferred a great favour on the believers when He sent among them a messenger from amongst themselves” (Sura Ale Imraan, verse 164).
When Allah Ta’ala created this world with all its resources and adornments He did not cite this as a favour upon mankind and nor did He cite as a favour upon mankind when He created mankind as His masterpiece and endowed him with the various faculties of intelligence, sight, perception etc. However, Allah Ta’ala deemed appropriate to remind mankind of His favour when He deputed Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to mankind. The reason behind this was that mankind was now conferred with a favour that would transform and change his very being and return to him his nobility, dignity and honour in the sight of his creator. Thus this reminder.
This favour will only be realized and regarded as a favour when one views the advent of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam using the prevalent conditions of the time as a backdrop.
The advent of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam occurred at a time when mankind had plunged themselves into the very abysses and dungeons of depravation and degeneration. It is a hard-proven fact that this was the darkest era that had ever engulfed mankind and therefore it was rightfully tagged the “Days of Ignorance” or Ayaamul-Jaahiliyaa. It was the mission of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam to eradicate this darkness and usher mankind into the light of freedom and liberation. 
It was only this struggle that brought about or gave birth to the glorious and golden era of Islam. An era that is well recorded in the annals of Islamic history as an era wherein mankind was nobly freed and liberated.
The sublime teachings of Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam unequivocally and glaringly spelt out:
Freedom from oppression
Freedom from superstition
Freedom from atheism
Freedom from paganism and idolatry
Freedom from materialism
Freedom from xenophobia and caste systems
Freedom from exploitation and monopoly
Freedom from animalism and barbarism.
It is only when the world views this struggle in its correct light and applies its teachings we would confidently say that mankind has attained true freedom and liberation!
May Allah Ta’ala grant the Ummah the Tawfiq of emulating His Nabi Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam in totality and make us realize that true allegiance to His noble Prophet Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam is a lifetime of practical commemoration of his great life. Aameen.
Let every Muslim make it his duty to introduce this great personality to the world!

Abu Hurairah narrated that :
The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ)  said: “Indeed the first of what will be asked about on the Day of Judgment – meaning the slave (of Allah) being questioned about the favors – is that it will be said to him: ‘Did We not make your body, health, and give you of cool water to drink?’”
