    MUMBAI: Muslims are gearing up to celebrate Eid-e-Milad, Prophet Mohammed's birth anniversary on Wednesday. Recitation of the Quran and naat (devotional poetry), processions and speeches are being planned for Eid-e-Milad, one of the most auspicious days in the Islamic calendar.

    The city's oldest Eid-e-Milad function will be at the historic Khilafat House in Byculla. After the ritualistic speeches-Union tourism minister Subodh Kant Sahai is the chief guest -at the Khilafat House, a procession with more than 1,000 trucks will wind its way through thickly populated Muslim pockets like Mohammed Ali Road and culminate at Crawford Market. The Eid-e-Milad procession at the Khilafat House was started by freedom fighter Maulana Mohammmed Ali Jauhar way back in the 1920s. Mahatma Gandhi attended its inaugural procession to forge Hindu-Muslim unity and also to oppose the abolition of Islamic Caliphate in Turkey

    The ulema maintain that unruly behaviour and inconvenience to fellow citizens by Muslims on this day will defeat the purpose and, instead of getting Allah's blessings, they will incur His wrath. "The day should be used not as just as expressing gratitude to the creator who sent Prophet Mohammed as messenger, but also as a reminder that we all have to be accountable for our actions on the day of judgement," said Maulana Rizwan Khan, vice-president, Sunni Dawat-e-Islami, an organization of Sunni Muslims.

    Fearing trouble, especially from a section of Deobandi Muslims, as they see it as biddat (innovation), clerics have appealed for peace during the celebrations. "Muslims must ensure that as they celebrate, they must not cause nuisance to others," said Maulana Moin Ashraf, president of Grant Road-based Jamia Qadriya Ashrafia.

    "Muslims must ensure that while they celebrate the holy Prophet's birth anniversary, they must not cause nuisance to others," appealed Maulana Moin Ashraf, president of Grant Road-based Jamia Qadriya Ashrafia.

    The mammoth crowd will leave in a huge procession. "More than 1000 decorated trucks will participate in the procession which will wind its way through thickly populated Muslim pockets like Mohammed Ali Road and Bhendi Bazaar and culminate at Crawford Market," said Sarfarz Arzoo, Khilafat House's trustee. The Eid-e-Milad procession at the Khilafat House was started by freedom fighter Maulana Mohammmed Ali Jauhar way back in the 1920. Mahatma Gandhi attended its inaugural procession to forge Hindu-Muslim unity and also to oppose the abolition of Islamic Caliphate in Turkey. The programme which will start at 2 pm is expected to see participants in thousands.

    Muslims, especially from the Sunni sect, across the world observe the day in festive fervour. However, the ulema maintain that unruly behaviour and inconvenience to fellow citizens by the Muslims on this day will defeat the purpose and, instead of getting Allah's blessings, they will incur His wrath. "The day should be used not as just as expressing gratitude to the creator who sent Prophet Mohammed as messenger, but also as a reminder that we all have to be accountable for our actions on the day of judgement," said Maulana Rizwan Khan, vice-president, Sunni Dawat-e-Islami, an organization of Sunni Muslims. Khan added that there are divine indications which prove that Allah made the Prophet's birth auspicious. "The Prophet came as a guide not just to Muslims, but to entire humanity. His teaching was about peace and love and this needs to be spread widely," said Khan.

    Fearing trouble, especially from a section of Deobandi Muslims as they see it as biddat (innovation), many clerics have appealed for maintaining peace and decorum during the Prophet's birthday celebrations. "Muslims must ensure that while they celebrate the holy Prophet's birth anniversary, they must not cause nuisance to others," appealed Maulana Moin Ashraf, president of Grant Road-based Jamia Qadriya Ashrafia.

    thanx. there are only two eids
    Eid ul Fitr= celebrated after fasting in ramazan.
    Eid ul Azha= when muslims do qurbani.
    Eid milad un nabi is just celebrated as a birthday of Prophet pbuh. Not religiously meant as Eid.
