This festival is also known as Mawlid al-Nabi al-Sharif is the observance of the birthday of Islamic Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him) which is commemorated in Rabi al Awwal, the third month of the Islamic Calender. 12th Rabi al Awwal is the accepted date among most of the Sunni Scholars, while Shia’s scholars regard 17the Rabi al Awwal as the accepted date.
The history of this celebration goes back to the early days of Islam when some of the Tabi‘un began to hold sessions in which poetry and songs composed to honor Muhammad were recited and sung to the crowds.The Ottomans declared it an official holiday in 1588, known as Mevlid Kandil. The term Mawlid is also used in some parts of the world, such as Egypt, as a generic term for the birthday celebrations of other historical religious figures such as Sufi saints.
Mawlid is derived from the Arabic root word, meaning to give birth, bear a child, descendant. In contemporary usage, Mawlid refers to the observance of the birthday of Muhammad.
Along with being referred to as the celebration of the birth of Muhammad, the term Mawlid also refers to the ‘text especially composed for and recited at Muhammad’s nativity celebration’ or “a text recited or sung on that day”.
