Western readers might only know February 14th as Valentine's day. Well, I must say... don't bother to celebrate it so much as it is only a public relations exercise to perk up sales and prices of 'love-related' goods such as flowers, chocolates and greeting cards. Anyway it happened that for the year 2011, the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad SAW which is calculated using the Muslim lunar calendar falls on February 15th. As the Muslim calendar states that a new day starts after dusk, the night of February 14th this year coincides with the start of the birthday of the Prophet.
A short story on the event would be made after this. Just stay tuned... :]
