Prophet Muhammad’s Birthday is called simply “Mawlid” for short in most Islamic countries, but in Bangladesh, it is pronounced “Milad” instead. The word is Arabic and means simply “birth” or “birthday”.

There will be special mosque services and other events on Milad throughout Bangladesh, and there may be some public processions as well meant to honour Muhammad. But in Bangladesh, all birth anniversaries are kept by special prayers for Allah’s blessings and the distribution of foods and treats to all attendees at birthday celebrations.

And Muhammad’s birthday is kept in the same way, if with greater significance to Muslims.

Additionally, it is common for selections for national Bengali poets and writers to be read at Milad gatherings.
