Eid-e-Milad or Eid Milad-un-Nabi is a day dedicated to the Prophet Mohammad and his teachings. According to legends, the Prophet was born on the twelfth day of Rabee-ul-Awwal — which is the third month of the Islamic lunar calendar — in Mecca in 570 CE.

In 2019, Milad started from the evening of 9 November and will continue till 10 November. On this day, hymns are sung in praise of the Prophet and it is also commonly believed that listening to those will make one receive worldly and heavenly rewards. However, the day is marked differently by the Shia and Sunni Muslim sects.

The Shia community believes that on this day Prophet Muhammad had chosen Hazrat Ali as his successor, while on the other hand, the Sunni community holds prayer meetings throughout the day.
Several countries celebrate the day by taking out large processions on the street. Prayers are recited and stories of the Prophet are narrated.
