The word Maulidi translated in Arabic means "birth". The festival celebrates the month of birth of the Prophet Muhammad. Different countries have unique ways of celebrating Maulidi but they all have one main theme that is similar to the veneration of the Prophet Muhammad. The first of this celebration is supposed to have taken place in Egypt some 400 years after the death of the Prophet Mohammed in Mecca and after that saw the celebration then thrive in the world and which take place each year. The mosque was Riyadha become the place where the main religious celebrations take place today.
