Eid Milad-Un-Nabi is celebrated worldwide by Muslims as the birthday of the prophet of Islam, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the founder of Islam. According to Islamic doctrine, he is God’s last Messenger, sent to confirm the essential teachings of monotheism preached previously by Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. He is viewed as the final prophet of God in all the main branches of Islam. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) united Arabia into a single Muslim polity and his teachings, practices, and the Quran form the basis of Islamic religious belief. Quran is comprised of revelations received by Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was born in Mecca in Saudi Arabia. His parents died at a very age and he was brought up his paternal uncle. At the age of 43 years, Prophet started preaching and declared that he was prophet of God and proclaimed that there is only one God. Before his death, most of the Arabian Peninsula had converted to Islam.
