There are some discrepancies among different Sunni, Shi'a and Muslim scholars as to the exact date of the Prophet Muhammad's birthday, with Sunni's using the 12th day of the month and the Shi'a using the 17th day.

Many Muslims throughout the United Kingdom may fast during the daylight hours, say special prayers or eat a communal meal to celebrate Mawlid. On this day, processions are taken out where tons of Muslims participate and come together to recite Naat-Shareef (Exalted Poetry) and sing hymns in praise of the Prophet Muhammad. While the day is widely celebrated in India and Pakistan, it is not celebrated in Saudi Arabia or Qatar.

The day dawned with 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salutes in all provincial capitals to pay homage to the last Holy Prophet (PBUH). Numerous processions, fireworks and celebrations will mark the birth of Prophet Mohammad in the country.
