Lucknow, Mar 10 (ANI): Muslims here on Tuesday carried out a procession to celebrate the Eid-E-Milad-Un-Nabi, the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad.

A large number of Muslims participated in the procession and appealed for unity to both Hindus and Muslims.

Both Hindus and Muslims should celebrate their festivals together on this day when both Eid-E-Milad-Un-Nabi and Holi are coinciding, said Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangi Mehli, a cleric.

Prayers were also offered for the progress and peace of the country.

Born in 570 A.D., Mohammad is believed to be the last Prophet of Islam. He described himself as the messenger of God and is said to have received Koran from the Almighty at the age of 40.

Years later, he returned to Mecca, where the Kaaba was established as the goal of pilgrimage for Islamic devotees.

The Prophet is believed to have died in 632 A.D. (ANI)
