Anyone know why this has been spelt Maulid? I have only even seen it Mawlid.

Different approaches towards Arabic-to-English transcription. In particular, whether (and when) the "wau" character will be transcribed as a "U" or a "W". And then, what will the Swahili look like? I am actually used to seeing "Maulidi" but that was years ago, in Kenya.

Moslems is a variant spelling of/for Muslims and ought to be acceptable too.
