Since Muslims from India, Saudi, Pakistan, UAE etc differ on the way to celebrate Eid Milad-un Nabi in Rabi 1445, here’s the dates, its history, and significance.

Rabi ul Awal 2023

This month, Rabi ul Awal 2023 is scheduled to begin on a the 16th of September, 2023, or on a the 17th of September 2023 and 12th Rabi ul Awal 2023 or Eid Milad un Nabi 2023 is expected to be observed on the 27th or 28th September 2023. The specific date and time of Rabi Awal 2023 is not known. Awal 2023 is dependent on where you live and the position at moon. Moon of Rabi Awal 1445. Awal 1445.

It is the month of Rabi al Awwal.

Rabi ul Awal can be described as the 3rd month of Islamic Calendar, also known as Hijri Calendar.

In Arabic”rabbi, “rabbi” means spring while “al awwal” means the first. Thus, Rabbi ul Awwal as a complete word translates to “The The First Spring’.

Rabi ul Awal is by far the most important month in Islamic history of humanity, as it has been blessed during this month due to being born the Holy Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W. ) and has been the largest and most memorable historical event in the history of humanity. Therefore, this month is also known to be the month marking the birth of the Prophet we love (S.A.W. ).

This month is the Prophet’s (S.A.W.) birth

Before the Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W.) was born, the world was living in an era of ignorance and darkness. They worshipped various gods. They were straying from the way of Allah. As the Prophet (S.A.W.) came into the world, he carried along with him the message of Truth The message of Allah and His Oneness. The message guided the people to illumination, enabling them to distinguish between the right and wrong.

One of the major advantages that our Prophet (S.A.W.) has to do with the fact that he was final of the prophets (A.S.) as well as that no Prophet will follow him. Mohammad (S.A.W.) will be the Prophet of everyone until the end of time. As Allah says in Quran:

“…. He (S.A.W.) is Messenger to Allah and is the last (end) of Prophets. Also, Allah is always aware of all things.”

(Surah Ahzab 33:40)

The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) is the perfect example of what perfection can be. He is the model we have been given by Allah and we must adhere to his Sunnah to live an ideal life that is not just defined by religion but actually beneficial to humanity as a whole if we were to live the Sunnah. Allah Says in Quran:

“Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad S.A.W.) you have a wonderful model to follow for anyone who believes in (the meeting With) Allah and the Last Day and thinks of Allah greatly.”

(Surah Ahzab 33:21)

There is no doubt that the The life of Prophet (S.A.W.) is the main source of wisdom for all Muslims as well as the Prophet (S.A.W.) is a blessing not just on us, but also to all the creations and the worlds of Allah. As Allah Says in Quran:

“And We’ve been sending to you (O Muhammad S.A.W.) not as a show of favor to the Almin (mankind Jinns, jinns and all that is).”

(Surah Anbiya 21:107)

Therefore, every Muslim should study and follow the examples of practicality provided by him in all aspect of his life.

Eid Milad-un Nabi

Many Muslims consider that the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) is born during the month of Rabi Ul Awal, however there isn’t any consensus on the precise date.

In certain parts that include Europe, USA, Canada, South East Asia, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh the majority of Muslims observe the 12th of Rabi ul Awal as the birthday of Prophet (S.A.W.) and refer to this day as “Eid Milad un Nabi”. The people celebrate ‘Eid Millad un Nabi’ in great excitement and fervor. The celebrations include celebrating “Milad” (praising the Prophet S.A.W. by poets) as well as holding processions and exchanging gifts, illuminating mosques, as well as other actions.

Within the Middle East and other surrounding countries, Muslims do not celebrate this day, neither on the 12th of Rabi ul Awal nor any other day in this month, because the Prophet (S.A.W.) or his companions (R.A.) are not celebrating birthdays. never celebrated the birthday of Prophet (S.A.W.) and any of the Prophets (A.S.).

Some Muslims celebrate the day of Eid Milad-Un Nabi and a few Muslims are not observant of the day.


What is most important to all Muslims is to adhere to the guidelines of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and live our lives in accordance with his Sunnah. This requires consistent and continuous efforts by everyone Muslims.

“Prophet Muhammad (PBUH): The Most Humble and Modest”

May Allah guide us everyone towards the blessings offered by the Glorious Quran as well as The Sunnah that His Messenger (S.A.W. ).
