Verily, Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O you who believe! Send blessings on him, and salute him with a worthy salutation." (Qur’an 33:56)
CMC GRAND MAWLID
We are happy to announce we will have babysitting available, which will include an inflatable moonwalk, balloons, henna, and face-paint. We suggest a donation of $5 per child (cash only), but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. So please come with the family and enjoy!
In order to bring your child for babysitting, you are required to register at the following link:
We will also be providing Turkish style refreshments and a light dinner following the program.
This Mawlid is for all cultures and backgrounds, there will be performances in 5 different languages, including Spanish and Turkish, with a special performance from Turkish artist Bekir Salim. We will also display translations for most of the Arabic performances on a projector screen.
Because the event will be taking place on a school/work night, we will begin promptly with Maghrib prayer and end at 7:30 with Isha’ prayer. Your punctuality is appreciated.
Please be sure to promptly submit your RSVP below so that proper food and seating arrangements can be made.

How much should I donate?
We will gain much blessing from your good intentions so any amount is encouraged. Monthly donations are most helpful because they allow us to put on the monthly gatherings on a consistent basis.
Why should I donate?
The Chicago Mawlid Committee is an organization dedicated to providing a platform for praising the Blessed Messenger ﷺ, and to experience religious and cultural expression of love for the Prophet ﷺ in the city of Chicago.
A traditional way Muslims have done this in the past is by gathering together and reciting praise, poetry, and songs that demonstrate their love for the Prophet ﷺ. Our gatherings pierce the heart, water the seed of love, and capture some of the spiritual aspects of this religion that is sometimes lost in the speed of this modern-day world.
Are donations tax deductible?
Yes, the CMC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, all donations are tax-deductible.
