Milad-un Nabi procession passes off peacefully
Hyderabad, January 25: Processions, religious congregations and special prayers marked the celebration of birth anniversary of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) which was celebrated as Milaad-Un-Nabi across the State, especially in the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad on Friday.
Led by religious leaders, hundreds of Muslims youth took out Milad processions from different localities. Small processions from different areas in the Old City merged into the large procession at Mecca Masjid where Qutba-e-Milaad was recited. Similar processions were also taken out from different localities in the new city. The organisers at most places have also ensured that the procession ends before the Friday prayers. However, in some areas, small processions were taken out after Friday prayers.
Relics of Holy Prophet Muhammad were also displayed at Mecca Masjid, Masjid-e-Shattariya, Quadri Chaman, Dargah-e-Yousufain, Siddiq Gulshan and a few other places in the city.
Decorative arches and models of ‘Khana Ka’aba’ and ‘Roza-e-Rasool’ (Peace Be Upon Him) were erected at several places. Banners inscribed with Quranic verses, Hadith and poetic verses were displayed during the procession. Muslims gathered in large numbers to recite special prayers in all the mosques. Green buntings, flags and banners adorn the roads all over the city.
The Milaad-un-Nabi celebrations began from Thursday evening itself. Nearly two lakh people attended the public meeting Jalsa-e-Rahmatulil Aalameen at Darulsalaam which was addressed by prominent religious leaders from across the country and also by some guest speakers from Pakistan. MIM president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, who was released from Sangareddy Jail, on Thursday evening, delivered a comprehensive speech covering the importance of Milaad-un-Nabi while explaining the prevailing political circumstances in the State. The Darulsalaam meeting went on till early hours.
On Friday, the largest congregation was seen at Nizam College Grounds where All India Majlis-e-Tameer Millat organised Jalsa-e-Rahmatul Lil-Alameen.
Elaborate security arrangements were made by the City Police to ensure peaceful conduct of the celebrations.
