Customs of the Prophet’s Birthday The Egyptians consider the Prophet’s birthday a special and very important day in the life of the Egyptian people. Where the Egyptian people are considered the most closely related to the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace.
The Egyptians celebrate this day by making marches in remembrance and praise of the Prophet in the streets. They raise green flags and walk-in groups in the streets. They roam the streets with praise and the flags. They also visit the shrines of Ahl al-Bayt (the Prophet Mohamed Relatives) and light candles in these shrines, such as the shrines of Hassan and Hussein and the shrine of Sayyida Zainab.
