12 Rabi ul Awal: When, why and how is it observed
The celebration commemorates the birth of Prophet Mohammed, the religion’s founder who Muslims also consider to be a divine messenger. In the third month of the Islamic calendar, Rabi’ al-Awwal, he is remembered on the anniversary of his birth. Several nations with a majority of Muslims recognize the event as a national holiday. Milad originates from ‘maulud’, an Arabic word that translates to “birth.” However, in contemporary use, it is frequently referred to as the Prophet Mohammed’s birthday celebration.
This holiday is observed on the twelfth day of Rabi ul Awal, the Prophet Mohammed is said to have been born on the twelfth day of the month of Rabi ul Awal.
In the year 570 AD, Prophet Muhammad was born in the Arab city of Mecca. Muhammad’s mother was Aamna Bibi, and his father was Hazrat Abdullah. Prophet Muhammad is regarded as the final prophet in Islam.
Muslim community members greet one another and offer prayers in mosques all night long on the occasion of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi. In mosques and homes specifically, the holy Quran is recited; some people give sadqa to the poor.
On this day, processions are also carried out in some areas. Homemade meals are made and then shared with the intention of fostering brotherhood.
Depending on the country, Milad celebrations may vary, although Muslims typically mark the day on either the 12th or the 17th day of the Islamic month of Rabi’ al-awwal. Shi’a scholars consider the 17th Rabi’ al-awwal to be the acceptable date, whilst the majority of Sunni scholars consider the 12th Rabi’ al-awwal to be the approved date.
On this day, religious authorities give talks on the Prophet’s life in public meetings, and parents tell their children stories about the Prophet. Keeping your attention on the teachings of Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) is the most important factor on this day. Families come together to prepare a feast that is later on served to the visitors as well as given to the needy. Giving charity is viewed as a crucial component of the Eid Milad un Nabi holiday.
In the Islamic calendar, the day of the 12th Rabi-ul-Awal is very significant. Muslims hold that the birth of the last Prophet (peace be upon him) on this day was Allah Almighty’s act of charity toward humanity.
