Eid Milad un Nabi 2018 – When we talk about our Islamic festivals we know about Eid ul Fitr, Eid al Adha and Eid Milad un Nabi which we called Mawlid in Arabic. 12 Rabi ul Awwal is the 3rd month of the Islamic lunar calendar. It comes after Safar. It is a day when our Prophet (SAW) came to the world. In this article, I am posting Eid Milad un Nabi 2018 date in Pakistan & the importance of this Sacred day.
Eid Milad un Nabi 2018
- The first meaning is that the birth of the Prophet and His (PBUH) virtue should be mentioned and describe the praise of the Prophet (SAW) Alone or collectively.
- The second type is Mehfil-e-Milad in which regular meetings are organized also the recitation of Naats, the Birth discussion is done. Food arrangement is done and feels happy at the arrival of the prophet.
The order of both cases is separate. In 1st type celebration of Milad is Sunnah of Sahaba Qaraam, Ambiya Karam and democratic people. In the 2nd case, Milad Mahafil started by Sultan Salahudeen Ayubi’s brother in law in 6 Hijri and the king of Irbil Sultan Muzafrudeen Abu Saeed in 630 Hijri.

“Ae Habib..! Say that Muslims should celebrate on Allah’s blessings and His mercy”
This Ayat order’s us that when we bless with Allah’s blessings and mercy, we should celebrate and pray to God.
In Quran Pak,
Allah says, If you will be thankful for my blessings I’ll raise them.And remember that blessing of Allah upon you when you were an enemy of each other and Allah raise love in your heart and you became brothers because of Allah blessings.It is the great blessing of Allah that Allah attached the broken hearts. Made every one brother of each other. Turned their hate into love. But think that the source of this blessing is our Prophet (SAW).
Eid Milad un-Nabi 2018 Benifits
The charity is given with pleasure, due to the happiness of this Holy day, which has benefited for poverty. Milad Mahafils are organized that shows the lovers of the Prophet. Thus, people thanks to Allah, for the greatest blessing and in the heart of the Ehl-e-Mehfil, the Prophet virtue becomes strong.
“And We sent the Prophet as a mercy for all the worlds”
It is clear from the verse that the Prophet is mercy for all the worlds.
An incident of Hazrat Jabir Bin Abdullah
Hazrat Jabir Bin Abdullah said, Ae Prophet (SAW) my parents die for you please tell me what was the 1st thing that Allah made? He (SAW) said Ae Jabir indeed before all the creatures Allah create your Prophet (SAW) Noor with His (ALLAH) Noor before all the creatures.
The Benefits of Mohammad’s Name
There was a man in Bani Israel. He disrespects Allah’s orders for hundred years. When he died people throw him in bad & smelly place. Allah revealed to Moosa (R.A) that lift that person from that smelly place and offer his death prayer.
Hazrat Mosa (R.A) said, “Bani Israel are saying that this man disrespect your order’s for hundred years”
So Allah said, “Ae Moosa (R.A) it is true, but whenever he opens Torat and see the word Mohammad and hug this word with huge respect. That’s why I forgive all his sins”
The Noor of The Prophet (SAW) Face
Hazrat Haleema (R.A) says, “From the day we brought Muhammad (SAW) home, we did not need the lamp because the light of His (SAW) face was more than the light of the lamp. When we needed a lamp in a house, then we would take Muhammad (SAW) theirs. So with their blessings, the house would be filled with light”
Eid Milad un Nabi 2018 Celebrations
“You should tell that celebrations of Milad are necessary to give thanks to Allah for His mercy and blessings. The prophet (SAW) is the mercy and blessings of Allah. The Mehfil of Milad is the happiness of mercy and blessings”
The night of Milad Sharif is greater than all other nights, then ‘Laila tul Qadr’ then ‘Lailat ul Miraj’ then the night of Arfa then the night of Jumma then ‘Shabe Qadar’ then the night of Eid. And the day of Arfa is greater than all other days means the 9th day of Zulhijjah then the day of 15th Shaban then the day of Jumma and the night is better than a day.
In the month of the Prophet’s birthday, Islamists always hold the Mehfils. Cooking food with pleasure and organizing the invitations. In these nights they charity different kinds of things. In Good deeds, they have always been participating and arranging the Prophet’s (SAW) Milad. From the blessings, the blessing of God has appeared to them.
Basically, Eid Milad un Nabi is a message of peace, love, respect and especially it is the greatest blessing of Allah that He sent His Messenger on earth. Without Him (SAW) we’ll never know the meaning of our lives. He (SAW) taught us how to implore to Allah, how to obey Allah’s orders, what Allah want from us, why Allah created us? what is the right path?
At the end, I want to say that we should celebrate this Holy day with peace and love. Pray to Allah that He forgives our sins and show us the right path ‘Ameen’.
Jashne Eid Milad un Nabi 2018 Mubarak to all Muslims. Remember each other in your prayers. May Allah accept our wishes.
