Some Muslims faithful are celebrating the Maulud in colourful procession on the streets of Abuja.
In the spirit of love, governments and Muslims all over the world mark Eid-ul-Mawlid, the commemoration of the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), but not many understand the significance and why Muslims celebrate the Day.
The Federal Government, while congratulating all Muslim faithful both home and in the diaspora for witnessing this year’s occasion, urged Nigerians to be tolerant and imbibe the spirit of love, patience, tolerance and perseverance which are deep spiritual virtues that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) exemplified.
