Srinagar: Thousands of Muslim devotees from across the Kashmir valley thronged to Hazratbal Shrine in Srinagar to celebrate Eid-e-Milad-Un-Nabi on Tuesday. Eid-e-Milad-Un-Nabi is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Muhammad on the 12th of Islamic Month ‘Rabi-ul-Awwal’.
The main function was held at Hazratbal Shrine in Srinagar where thousands of devotees including men, women, and children participated in Zuhar prayers and a holy relic which is believed to be a hair from the beard of Prophet Muhammad was also displayed after the prayers.
The holy relic will be displayed after every prayer on 19 and 20 October and will again be displayed on 22 October on Friday.
However, a limited number of devotees were allowed to participate in the night-long prayers on Monday in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, special prayers were held for the restoration of peace and brotherhood to prevail in the Kashmir valley.
