Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi 2021 Date in India: Every year, Milad-un-Nabi or Eid-e-Milad is observed as the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad by the Muslim community across the world. It is widely believed that the Prophet was born in Mecca on the 12th day of Rabee-ul-Awwal, the third month in the Islamic calendar, to Abdullah and Bibi Amina. However, some Twelver Shia Muslims believe that he was born on the 17th of Rabi’ al-awwal. Significantly, the day is also observed as the death anniversary of the Prophet.
According to legend, the Muslim ruler to first officially celebrate Prophet Muhammad’s birthday was Muzaffar al-Din Gökböri. The Ottomans then declared it as an official holiday in 1588, known as Mevlid Kandil.
