Eid-e-Miladunnabi observed

The holy Eid-e-Miladunnabi, marking the anniversary of birth and demise of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), was observed in the country on Friday with due religious fervor and solemnity.

On this day in 570, the 12th of Rabiul Awal of the Hijri calendar, Muhammad (PBUH) was born in Makkah of Saudi Arabia with divine blessings and messages of peace for mankind. He also passed away on the same day.

The day is a public holiday.

Different government and non-government organisations, including the Islamic Foundation (IF), chalked out elaborate programmes to mark the day.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Thursday greeted the countrymen and the Muslims across the world on the occasion of the holy Eid-e-Miladunnabi.

In his message, President Abdul Hamid said Allah had sent Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) to this world as a blessing for the entire universe.

The Prophet has been successful to discharge his duty of establishing ‘tawhid’ in the world with his efficiency, greatness, tolerance, hard work, devotion and limitless sufferings, he added.

He is regarded as the greatest human being because of his extraordinary personality, good behavior, and love towards the creation, unique trustworthiness and boundless kindness, the President said.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, in her message, said Allah had sent Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) as ‘Rahmatullil Alamin’.

He had emerged as the savior in the world filled with sinful acts, repression, falsehood, prejudice and conflicts, she added.

The Prophet had established brotherhood, justice and equity-based society, the premier said.

She expressed firm conviction that peace and welfare would be ensured in the current turbulent world through following the ideals of the Prophet (PBUH).

After the independence of Bangladesh, Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman had started observing the birth and demise anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) nationally in 1973, said an official handout.

Islamic Foundation took a fortnight-long special programme to mark the day.

Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam inaugurated a 15-daylong programme at Baitul Mukarram National Mosque today, which will continue till November 13.
