Many people of different countries celebrate Eid-e-Miladun-Nabi in remembrance of our prophet Muhammad (SW.). They maintain some traditions like, distributing sweets to the neighbor; pray to Allah for our prophet (SW.); cry for Allah's mercy.

All those are good deeds for sure. But I heard doing something by thinking of it as an islamic-tradition which is not part of Islam is Bidah/Bid'at?

So, could Eid-E-Miladun-Nabi could turn to Bid'at?
