Mevlid means birth time. Rebî'ul-evvel means spring. Our Prophet gave importance to this night every year after his prophethood. The ummah of each Prophet celebrated his Prophet's birthday as a holiday. Today is the holiday of Muslims, a day of joy and joy.

Adam (peace be upon him) and everything was created in his honor. His blessed name is written on the Throne and the skies and the Heavens. His grandfather Abdulmuttalib named him Muhammad. He dreamed that his name would spread throughout the world and everyone would praise him. Muhammad means the much praised one.

Our Prophet Muhammad would give a feast to his Companions on Mawlid nights and would tell the world about the things he honored and the things that happened during his childhood.
