This Sunday we’ll prepare the way for the prophet Mohammed’s birthday, which falls on Dec 24 on the lunar calendar.

With the assistance of Kamal Lemseffer and Anne Kjemtrup, Director of the Salam Center in Sacramento, we’ve identified pivotal events in Mohammed’s life that shaped the development of the message of Islam.
