A large part of the Muslim community in Delhi marching with some on horse-back and on horse-driven chariots, as part of a procession to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad.
Many Muslims in India observe Milad un-Nabi, which commemorates the Prophet Muhammad's (or Mohammad's) birthday. Milad un-Nabi is a gazetted holiday in India and is also known as Nabi Day, Mawlid, Mohammad's Birthday or the Prophet's Birthday.
Those who observe Milad-un-Nabi gatherings remember, discuss and celebrate the advent of the Prophet Muhammad's birth and his teachings. Some people send Milad-un-Nabi e-cards to friends and family. Many Sunni Muslims celebrate this event on the 12th of the Islamic month of Rabi' al-awwal, while the Shi'a community celebrates it on
the 17th of Rabi' al-awwal.
