Mawlid or Mawlid al-Nabi al-Sharif (‘Birth of the Prophet’) is the observance of the birthday of the Islamic prophet Muhammad which is commemorated in Rabi’ al-awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar. 12th Rabi’ al-awwal is the accepted date among most of the Sunni scholars, while Shi’a scholars regard 17th Rabi’ al-awwal as the accepted date.
The Islamic calendar or lunar calendar is different from the Gregorian calendar on the basis of the crescent moon sighting. Those from the Sunni community of Muslims, who also celebrate this occasion, mark it on the twelfth day of Rabi’ al-awwal, whereas the Shia community celebrates it on the seventeenth day of Rabi’ al-awwal.
This year, Eid-e-Milad will be celebrated on October 29 in Saudi Arabia and on October 30 in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other parts of the south Asian region. The festival will begin on the eve of October 29 and will continue till evening of October 30.
The idea of celebrating Prophet Muhammad’s birthday originates from the early Rashidun Caliphs of Islam from the Middle East. It was the Fatimids who decided to mark this day as Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi. It is believed by some Muslims that Prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca on the twelfth day of Rabi’ al-awwal in 570 CE.
