29th of October, 2020.
The federal government of Nigeria yesterday declared that today 29th of October, 2020 would be a public holiday to mark the celebration of the Eid-el mawlid as celebrated by Muslims across the world.
If you are a Christian reading this article now, you might be wondering what is so special about this day that the Muslims are celebrating and also why the federal government declared today as public holiday to mark the celebration? Don't worry, I would be giving you detailed information about today's Eid.
Muslims around the world celebrate today to mark the birth of a prophet named Muhammad, he was born in the city of Makkah. Prophet Muhammad was the spirit of truth Jesus told his disciples that he would come and confirm the teachings and true religion of what other prophet came to teach their followers which is Islam.
He was born in the year 570CE to the family of Aminah and Abdullahi and the Muslims called his birth year the year of the elephant. It was an event that took place in Makkah when an Abyssinian army with their elephant tried invading and destroying the worship place built by Prophet Ibrahim called the Kaaba, the attack was not successful as Allah sent down a flock of birds with hot picked stone from Hellfire to destroy the army.
Before his birth, his dad died in Makkah when he visited his grandmother on his way back from a business trip and his mum also died when he was aged 6 from a brief illness, 3 years later his grandfather also died when he took the care of him.
He was only left with his uncle Abu Talib may Allah be pleased with him, he took the care of him until his adulthood before he died also.
At the age of 40, Muhammad received his first revelation in a cave called Hira from angel Gabriel, the revelation states " read in the name of your Lord who created man from a clinging substance, read your lord is most generous, he who brought the pen and taught men which he knew not ".

After the revelation, he went to inform his few followers about what the angel told him, that was how Islam start spreading across the cities in Makkah. The leaders of Makkah we're not happy as they believed that people would stop practising idolatry and follow the new religion brought by Muhammad.
They had to chase him out from Makkah to Medina and they inflicted suffering on the new believers of Islam, this led to two major battle of Islam known as the battle of Badr(won) and the battle of Uhud(lose). Muhammad gained almost about 10,000 followers and marched back with his army to recapture Makkah without revenge and the people of Makkah accepted Islam.
Muhammad death came after his first pilgrimage and the last sermon in Makkah, he died after a brief illness on the 26th of June, 632BC.

To the Muslims, I am calling on you to inform you that Prophet Muhammad never celebrated his birthday by organizing a party, sharing foods and other things we do to celebrate a birthday instead, he submitted himself to Allah by praising him.
Celebrating a birthday in Islam is an innovation and any innovation in Islam is termed bid' ah which is haram.
Share this article to other Muslims brothers and sisters to gain this knowledge.
