Rasulullah SA. There is no mention or indication in Hadith Sharif as to the date of Safar or Rabiul Awal month from which he fell ill and on what date he passed away. Innumerable hadiths have narrated in detail the events of his illness, illness-condition, deeds, advice, his death etc. But nowhere was any date mentioned.
2nd Hijri century

From then on, the scholars tried to arrange the events of the life of Rasulullah SA with historical dates. There are many opinions about the beginning of his illness. In this connection, the famous Tabi’i historian Ibn Ishaq of the second century AH [151 AH / 6 AD] said:

The Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace.
“Rasulullah SA. The illness in which he died began with a few nights at the end of the month of Safar, or at the beginning of the month of Rabiul Awwal. “[1]

There is also disagreement as to when his illness began. Some say Saturday, some say Wednesday, and some say Monday is the beginning of his illness. [2] Some say, 10 days, some say, 12 days, some say 13 days, some say, after being sick for 14 days, Rasulullah SA. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) passed away. [3]
From the next discussion

We see that there is disagreement as to the date on which he died. Some say 1st Rabiul Awal, some say 2nd Rabiul Awal and some say 12th Rabiul Awal.

In any case, no one is saying that he was healed sometime after the onset of the illness. It has been narrated in Sahih Hadith that he took a bath a few days before his death while still ill. Ayesha in the hadith compiled by Bukhari. Said:

إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم لما دخل بيتي واشتد به وجعه قال هريقوا علي من سبع قرب … لعلي أعهد إلى الناس (لعلى أستريح فأعهد إلى الناس) … ثم خرج إلى الناس, فصلى لهم وخطبهم
“Rasulullah SA. When he entered my house and his illness increased, he said, “You pour water on me.” So that I can comfortably guide people. Then we poured water on his body. Then he went out to the people and led them in prayer and delivered the khutbah to them. “[4]
Here it is clear that,

Rasulullah SA. In order to reduce the incidence of illness and fever during his illness, he took a bath in such a way that he could feel some comfort and he could go to the mosque and give necessary advice to everyone.

The date or time on which this bathing incident took place is not explicitly mentioned in any hadith. However, Allama Ibn Hazar al-Asqalani, combining this hadith with Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim, mentions that the incident of this bath took place on the Thursday before the death, that is, five days before the death. [5]

From the above discussion it appears to us that on the last Wednesday of the month of Safar Rasulullah SA. There is no basis for these stories of healing, bathing and for this reason the Companions rejoiced and gave alms. Allah knows best.
Since the original fact is not proven,

Therefore, there is no question of celebrating or observing the event. Even then, we have to understand that it is one thing to be happy or sad about an event of joy or sorrow, and it is quite another to express joy or sorrow on that day every year or to celebrate ‘Joy Day’ or ‘Mourning Day’. The difference between the two is heaven and earth.
The Prophet (peace be upon him)

There have been many happy days or moments in his life, when he was very happy, prostrating in the court of Allah to give thanks. In some cases, his family and companions also rejoiced and expressed their gratitude in various ways. But they did not celebrate that day or moment as the annual ‘Joy Day’ the following year or at any time after. For this reason, there is no opportunity to observe any such day or moment without the instruction of the Prophet (peace be upon him) or the deeds of the Companions or to consider special worship in them as the cause of special reward.
