- noun Plural form of
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The primary celebrations were the mawlids of the Prophet and Imams, and also the celebration of the day of Ghadīr Khumm
When the Fatimid dynasty collapsed, the other mawlids were simply forgotten, as they held no significance for Sunnis, but the mawlid of the Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam continued.
In fact, these source books mention that on the days of these other mawlids, most of the ceremonies took place around the mausoleums and graves of the Fatimids, and it was at these places where much of the food was distributed.
- No restrictions in practicing Islam (even Sufis - There are mawlids in Saudi Arabia) - It's safe for Muslims.
