Pearl of Wisdom

in his description of the angels, 'With all the positions they possess, and with their rank near You and all their love for You, and with their abundant servitude and worship for You, and their lack of attention about You, yet if they were to witness the essence of what is hidden about You from them, they would regard their deeds insignificant, they would reproach themselves and would realize that they have not worshipped You as You deserve to be worshipped, and have not obeyed You as You deserve to be obeyed.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Ibid. Sermon 109

Question : #784 Category: Holy Prophets
Subject: Birth of the holy prophet
Question: Salaamun Alaykum,

I was wondering why the sunni faith celebrates the birthday of the holy prophet on the 12th of rabbiul awwal and Shia on the 17th. I frequently have these discussions and wanted to know if there's solid proof on this birthdate issue, maybe in the Quran?
your help will really be appreciated, thank you
Answer: Salaam Alaykum,

The two Schools of Thought have a differing dates due to the source of information.

The followers of Ahlulbayt refer to narrations by the Holy Prophet's own kin (family), while the followers of the AhlulSunnah refer to narrations by the companions.

It's up to the individual to follow which source, one's own family or one's friends/neighbors.

Regardless, the difference of the days is known as the Week of Unity across the Islamic world.
