“An Evening with the Prophet,” a celebration of the birth of the prophet Muhammad, will feature Muslim chant and poetry. The event will be held at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, 5850 S. Woodlawn Ave.

Tahir Abdullah, who was recently appointed assistant director of spiritual life at Rockefeller, brought Muslim artists and singers together for the event.
