Mawlid al-Nabi, also known as Eid-e-Milad an-Nabi, is a day traditionally believed to mark both the birth and death of Prophet Muhammad on the 12th of Rabi' al-Awwal in the Islamic calendar. Muslims commemorate the Prophet Muhammad's contribution to the revival of Islam by holding religious gatherings on this day. Over time, this observance has evolved into one of the three major religious festivals in Islam.

Mawlid al-Nabi is usually presided over by the Imam of the local mosque. On this day, Muslims take a bath, dress properly, and go to the mosque for worship. They recite the Quran and share stories about the history of Islam and Muhammad's significant achievements in reviving the faith.
