Barcelona star Arda Turan took to social media to wish his followers a happy Mevlid Kandili today. The event commemorates the birth of the prophet Muhammad and is celebrated often on the 12th day of Rabi’ al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar.
Turan also wished for world peace and that all his followers have a happy day celebrating with their families.
Tüm İslam aleminin Mevlid Kandili mübarek olsun. Bu vesileyle dünyaya barış, huzur ve mutluluk hakim olsun.

Barcelona won their fifth trophy of 2015 following the World Club Cup triumph over River Plate in the final over the weekend but Turan was unable to play. In fact the bearded winger has failed to make a single appearance for the reigning Champions League title holders this season.
The Turkish international winger joined from Atletico Madrid on a five-year deal but Barcelona were unable to register him due to the FIFA transfer ban imposed on the club.
Barcelona will however, be able to register Turan in January when the transfer window opens and he will be expected to make his La Liga debut against Granada at the Camp Nou.
