This year, as per the Gregorian calendar, the celebration began from the evening of October 18 and will last till the evening of October 19.
One of the most important parts of Eid Milad-un-Nabi is to celebrate the life of the Prophet, his teachings, sufferings, and his character, as he even forgave his enemies. Muslims celebrate the occasion by wearing new clothes, offering prayers, and exchanging gifts.
The Prophet's life and teachings, even today, continue to influence believers and instil them with the will to follow the path of righteousness. (ANI)
