Pakistan is an independent state with its own distinguished culture and number of festivals. Some of these festivals are national, some regional and some others are the religious events or festivals which are celebrated by all the Muslims, living in Pakistan with the expression of full respect and love for their religion.
One of these events is known as Eid Milad-un-Nabi (S.A.W.W) . This is a day when our beloved prophet Muhammad S.A.W.W was born. The birth of the holy prophet (S.A.W.W) is a blessing for the humanity for the whole universe and he is the one who brought humans out of the prevailing darkness of ignorance. The love of Muhammad (S.A.W.W) is the soul of religious spirit of Muslims. The one who is devoid of his love is not a real Muslim. On 12th of Rabi-ul-Awal Muslims celebrate the birth day of their beloved prophet.
In Pakistan Eid Milad –un-Nabi (S.A.W.W) is celebrated and it is a public holiday In Pakistan.
On 12th of Rabi-ul-Awal Muslims decorate their houses and shops with light and enlighten their houses with candles. The Mehfil-e-Milad (S.A.W.W) is arranged in houses and mosques. People recite Naats and pay thanks to Almighty Allah for his great blessing on them. The lovers of Holy Prophet recite Naats in their sweet voices and present him a gift of Darood-e-Pak.
Like Eid-ul-Adha and Eid –ul- Fitr, Eid Milad-un-Nabi (S.A.W.W) Muslims wear newly made, neat and clean clothes and every mosque and house is lit up with colors of lightings. Just like Eid- ul -fitr and Eid -ul -Adha on this eid people make delicious meals and also give share to the poor people but this eid is comparatively more respectful for the muslims and it is celebrated very decently because the same day is also the death date of Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) .
