The preparations to celebrate Eid Milad-un-Nabi are in full swing as people decorated their houses, mosques, government and private buildings, markets, shopping centres and roads across the country with flags and colorful lights to mark the religious event.

Rabi-ul-Awwal is the 3rd and most significant month in the Islamic calander. This month holds great prominence due to its blessings because the reason for the creation of the universe, the mercy to all creation, the chosen one, the Beloved Prophet of all mankind, Muhammad Mustafa (P.B.U.H) graced the world with his presence in this month. The Holy Prophet (P.BU.H) was born on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal, Monday at the time of dawn in the Holy land of Makkah. Islamic scholars have asserted that the night of the birth of the Holy Prophet is superior to even Layla-tul-Qadr (The Night of Power) because angels descend from the skies on Layla-tul-Qadr but on the 12th night of Rabi -ul- Awwal, the mercy to all creation himself came into this world. Moreover, only Muslims reap the blessings and favors bestowed by Allah on Layla-tul-Qadr while on the night of the advent of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), Almighty Allah showered His mercy and blessings on all creation as also stated in the Holy Quran.
