New Delhi, November 10: A large section of Muslims in India will celebrate Prophet Mohammed's birthday, also known as Eid-e-Milad or Eid Milad-Un-Nabi or Mawlid, today on 12th of Islamic month Rabi' al-awwal. Muslims observe Eid Milad-Un-Nabi by taking out processions and holding special prayers in remembrance of Prophet Mohammed, who according to Islam was the last messenger of God. They also exchange greeting cards and send wishes via SMS or on WhatsApp and Facebook to commemorate Eid-e-Milad.
In the era of digital innovations, many Muslims keep quotes of Prophet Mohammed as their WhatsApp DP or Facebook profile picture to remember him on his birthday.
