After Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) died in 632 CE, many Muslims began to celebrate his life and his teachings with various informal holidays.

Despite these various celebratory traditions, the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad was not widely celebrated until Fatima established Milad un-Nabi in Egypt. On the first official celebration of Muhammad’s birthday, Muslims and Islamic scholars gathered at Mosques to pay their respects.
