Milād-un-Nabi in Nazira

The birth of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is considered the most significant event in the history of the world. Though his birthday was never observed by his companions and the second and third generations of Muslims after him who are considered exemplary, some Muslim sects towards the end of the 11th century took to celebrate it as Milād-un-Nabi. The Prophet never celebrated his birthday nor commanded it nor observed those of his family members' or that of his grand childrens'.

At Nazira in Assam, Milād-un-Nabi was observed at the Nazira M.C. Club from February 16th to 17th with great enthusiasm and fervor. Naziran's chose to assemble for the ocassion this month due to paucity of time. The two-day long programme under the chairmanship of Syed Mubidul Islam was attended by Pradip Kumar Das, Dr.Nirupama Mahanta, Saidul Islam and Debobrat Saikia who spoke about the nobility and message of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The event gathered large crowds to the narrations of the different aspects of the Prophet's life.

Milād-un-Nabi is ironically observed in the third month of the Islamic calendar. This year it coincided with January 24th with variants to the Shiites who celebrate it on January 29th.
