Milad Un Nabi is an important Islamic holiday that observes the birthday of the last Prophet of Islam – the Prophet Muhammad. This holiday marks the day when Allah sent Prophet Muhammad PBUH in this universe, to guide the mankind about Islam, the Quran, and the teachings of this religion.

Milad Un Nabi is commemorated on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal. This date always remains the same in the Islamic Lunar Calendar.

In Gregorian Calendar, however, the date of Eid Milad Un Nabi changes every year. Why? Islamic lunar calendar is 10-11 days shorter than the solar year and contains no intercalation, the month migrates over the seasons and changes dates every year.

Other names for Eid Milad Un Nabi are: Mawlid, Birthday of Prophet Muhammad, Mawlid al-Nabi al-Sharif

Eid Milad Un Nabi is a combination of three Arabic words. The Arabic word “Eid” means; celebration. The Arabic word “Milad or Mawlid” means; birthday or to give birth. The Arabic word “Nabi” means; Messenger. When combined, it means “celebration of Prophet’s Birthday”.

History of Eid Milad Un Nabi


Muslims have been celebrating Milad Un-Nabi since the early days of Islam.

The first celebrations of Eid Milad-Un-Nabi were recorded in the days of Tabi‘un (the followers of Sahaba, who received Prophet’s teachings second hand). In those days, the celebrations were limited to the reading of poetry and special songs composed to honor Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

With time, there were much greater celebrations for Milad Un-Nabi. The celebrations shifted towards Sufi-style, with animal sacrifices, grand feasts, torchlight processions, ceremonies, and public sermons organized within the Muslim community.

The celebrations for Eid Milad Un Nabi have become more widespread and have further enhanced with the arrival of this modern-day 21st century.

Today, there are grand Rabi Ul-Awwal celebrations in all Muslim countries – local towns, cities, villages, schools, and colleges. The celebratory activities now include grand feasts, Milad Sharif Mehfils, Islamic ceremonies, public festivities, decorating streets and homes with lights and flags, distributing free food in name of Prophet, and reciting Durood-e-Sharif and naats.

Eid Milad Un Nabi Celebrations

Eid Milad Un Nabi is celebrated with great zeal and fervor in all Muslim countries. The day is a public holiday in all Muslim-majority countries. The grandest celebrations are recorded in Pakistan, Turkey, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Tunisia. The only exceptions are Saudi Arabia and Qatar, where due to strict Wahhabi influence the celebrations for this day are forbidden.


12th Rabi ul Awwal is celebrated in a carnival manner, with large street processions and homes and mosques being decorated. Streets and homes are decorated with lights, and flags bearing the name of Prophet Muhammad are hung.

Charity is done on high-scale, with the wealthy Muslims distributing free food from morning till midnight. Special food stalls are arranged, where you can eat or take home anything for free.

Muslims sing Naats and chant hymns of praise to Prophet Muhammad. There are special Mehfil-e-Milaad events attended by nearby people, in which everyone recites Durood Sharif (sending blessings and peace upon the Prophet Muhammad SAW) and Qasida al-Burda Sharif.

Educational institutes observe a day off from regular studies. There are Naat and Quran recitation competitions, instead. Students are encouraged to wear traditional Islamic dresses – boys wearing Shalwar Qameez or Thobes with a Muslim cap and girls wearing traditional abaya. The ones reciting with the most beautiful and heart touching voice are awarded gifts.

Among non-Muslim countries, India is the only country noted for its Eid Milad Un Nabi festivities. Muslim communities decorate the streets with lights, flags, and banners. There are religious gatherings, rallies, and parades in different Indian cities.
