“Be kind, for whenever kindness becomes part of something, it beautifies it.”
That’s a beautiful quote, isn’t it? Pretty sure you’re wondering who said it, and it’s none other than Mohammed ibn Abdulla, the final Islamic prophet – whose birthday is being celebrated this month!
What is Mawlid and how is it celebrated?
Yes, it’s the Prophet Mohammed’s birthday on 9th October, which is in the third month of the Islamic calendar. The day is known as Eid Milad, Milad un Nabi, Maouloud, or Mawlid. Since Islam is practiced by people across the world, each region has its own name for the day!
The day is a holiday in many countries too, and there are often special prayers, processions, and feasts. It’s quite a major holiday in countries like Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, and Tunisia. The prophet himself didn’t celebrate his birthday; the celebration is believed to have originated in Baghdad, Iraq, and others followed suit.
