Today is Wednesday 12 Rabi ul Awal, the holy Eid e-Milad-un Nabi. On this day in 570 AD, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, in the arms of his mother Amina. Later on, this day in 632 AD he passed away.
12 Rabi ul Awal is considered by the devout Muslims as a day of infinite virtue and blessings. When the Arab world was plunged into the darkness of paganism, Allah sent the last Prophet and Messenger of Islam, Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) as a mercy for the world.
Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) gained fame as ‘Al-Amin’ even before his prophethood. His reputation was the result of his integrity, honesty, and truthfulness. There was a combination of all human virtues — compassion, forgiveness, humility, tolerance, compassion, pacifism. As well as spirituality, karma was also an important aspect of his life. As the last and greatest prophet of Islam, his vow was to establish the liberation and welfare of the world humanity. He is recognized in all times and in all countries as a man of the greatest human qualities, irrespective of religion, caste or creed.
On the occasion of Eid e-Milad-un Nabi the President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina have given separate statements. Apart from the Islamic Foundation, various political and social organizations have taken various programs to mark the day.
