Milad un nabi 2016:
Also known as Eid-e-Milad, Milad un Nabi 2016 celebrates the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. The holiday also honours Muhammad’s life and teachings. Milad un-Nabi is observed on the 12th day of Rabi-ul Awwal, the third month of the Islamic calendar. While the celebration of Muhammad’s birthday is happy, Milad un-Nabi is also a day of mourning. This is due to the fact that the Prophet Muhammad also passed away on the 12th day of Rabi-ul Awwal.
History of Milad un Nabi
However, Milad un Nabi 2016 celebrates the birth of Muhammad, the central prophet of Islam. According to historical texts, Muhammad was born in 570 CE in Saudi Arabia. Most scholars of Islam have determined that Muhammad was born on the 12th day of the third month of the Islamic calendar. During his life, Muhammad founded Islam and formed what is now Saudi Arabia as a single kingdom that was devoted to serving God. After Muhammad died in 632 CE, many Muslims began to celebrate his life and his teachings with various informal holidays.
After the first Milad un-Nabi celebrations in Egypt, the holiday became common in Islamic communities across the world.
Muslims celebrate the life and death of the Prophet Muhammad depending on their beliefs and preferences. Some people treat Milad un-Nabi 2016 as a festival holiday, but others regard it as solemn day.
Distribution of Sweets
It is a common practice for members of the clergy to distribute sweets and other treats to people on Milad un Nabi 2016. Honey is one of the most frequently distributed sweets during this holiday. This is because many scholars believe that honey was a favorite treat of the Prophet Muhammad.
Muslims are expected to visit a mosque on Milad un-Nabi. At mosque services, Muslims will listen to sermons and say prayers that honor God and the Prophet Muhammad. After the formal service, people participate in discussions about Muhammad and Islamic history with their friends and family members.
While there are many events that occur in public places during Milad un-Nabi, some of the most important holiday practices happen within private residences. Entire families often reflect on the deeds of Muhammad and think of ways that they can improve their daily actions. This also allows people to take time off from work to bond with their family members.

Barah Wafat is a solemn festival that allows people to mourn the death of the Prophet Muhammad. The event honours the twelve days of Muhammad’s sickness and his ultimate passing to Paradise. One of the most popular events associated with this festival is the procession of the glass casket. During this event, a symbol of Muhammad is placed in a glass casket and paraded in public.
