The Month of the Prophet’s Birth
Before the birth of the Holy Prophet, people were living in ignorance and darkness. They worshiped different gods. They were straying from the path of Allah. With the birth of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, he brought with him the message of truth, the message of Allah, His Oneness. This message led people to the path of enlightenment, helping them to distinguish between right and wrong.
The greatest quality of our Prophet (peace be upon him) is that he (peace be upon him) is the last of all prophets and no other prophet will come after him. Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) will remain a prophet for all mankind until the Day of Judgment. As Allah says in the Qur’an:
Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the epitome of perfection. They are the role models chosen by Allah for us and we have to follow their Sunnah to lead an ideal way of life which is not only praised by religion but actually beneficial to all mankind if we Act on it. Allah says in the Qur’an:
So every Muslim should learn and follow the practical examples he set in every aspect of life.

Most Muslims believe that the Holy Prophet was born in the month of Rabi al-Awal, although there is no consensus on the exact date.
In parts of Europe, America, Canada, Southeast Asia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, most Muslims celebrate the 12th of Rabi Ul Awwal as the birth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and this day as Eid Milad-un-Nabi. They celebrate “Eid Milad-ul-Nabi” with great enthusiasm. They celebrate this day by performing ‘Milad’ (praise of the Prophet by a poet), taking out processions, exchanging gifts, lighting mosques and other such activities.
Muslims in the Middle East and other surrounding countries do not celebrate this event either on the 12th of Rabi al-Awwal or on any other day of this month because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) or his Companions (may Allah be pleased with him) never celebrated the birthday of the Prophet. He did not celebrate. Prophet (pbuh)
Therefore, some Muslims celebrate Milad-ul-Nabi and some Muslims do not celebrate this day.
What is really necessary for all Muslims is to follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet and live their lives according to his Sunnah. This requires sustained and continuous efforts by all Muslims.
“The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): The Most Merciful and Meek.”
