Eid Milad-un Nabi 2023: Here are some easy mehendi designs from Indo-Arabic styles to Moroccan ones, Pakistani patterns and Rajasthani floral mehendi ideas

Eid Milad-un-Nabi can vary significantly across different traditions and cultures where some Muslims do not celebrate it at all, considering it an innovation (bid'ah) in Islam, while others view it as a way to express their love and admiration for the Prophet Muhammad hence, the way it is observed can range from quiet and reflective to lively and festive replete with donning vibrant clothes with mehendi or henna art on hands, depending on local customs and beliefs. Eid Milad-un-Nabi or Mawlid al-Nabi or simply Mawlid, celebrates the birth of the Prophet Muhammad and falls on the 12th day of Rabi' al-Awwal, the third month of the Islamic lunar calendar but the exact date varies each year in the Gregorian calendar because the Islamic lunar calendar is based on the moon.
