The legal and religious status of celebrating the birth of Holy Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) in light of the Qur'an and Sunnah:

And Indeed everyone rejoices except for Shaytan and his counterparts, because:

?? ????? ?? ???? ???? ??? ??? ???? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ???? ???? ????? ???????

Translation: Iblis cried loudly four times, first when Allah declared him as cursed, second when he was thrown out, Third When Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) was born and fourth when Surah al-Fatiha was revealed [Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah wan-Nihayah, Volume No. 2, Page No. 166]

Muslims rejoice on birth of Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) because Allah has told us to rejoice on His "Bounties and Mercies" This following text shall be based on


a) Qur'an and it's sciences


b) Hadith literature


c) Sayings of eminent scholars and fuqaha


d) Counter refutation of claims made against Mawlid.


                                       a) Understanding through Al-Qur'an wal Furqan and It's sciences

Proof No.1 Qur'an states:


???? ???????? ??????? ?????????????? ?????????? ?????????????? ???? ?????? ?????? ???????????


Say: "In the bounty of God. And in His Mercy,  in that "LET THEM REJOICE" : that is better than the (wealth) they hoard (Surah Yunus, 10:58)


Some might think in their wildest of imaginations that birth and arrival of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) is not a mercy, some even falsely limit the Mercies of Allah by saying that mercy mentioned here does not refer to Prophet Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam) thus we should not rejoice, so in reply to such people the best answer is found in Tafsir of Qur'an through Qur'an itself.

Qur'an states at another place:

????? ????????????? ?????? ???????? ??????????????

Translation: We have not sent you but as a "Mercy to the worlds" (Surah al-Anbiya, 21:107)

Hence without any shadow of doubt arrival of Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) is a mercy not only upon us but all worlds and creations of Allah azza Wajjal, thus we should rejoice as ordered in Qur'an (10:58)


Imam Ibn al-Jawzi (rah) explains 10:58 in his Tafsir:

?? ??? ????: ?????? ??????: ???? ??? ???? ???? ????? ???? ?????? ?? ??? ????.

Translation: ad-Dhahak narrated from Ibn Abbas (ra) that Bounty mentioned in this verse means Knowledge (i.e of Qur'an and Tawhid) whereas Mercy means Muhammad (Salallaho alaihi wasalam) [Ibn Jawzi Z'ad al Maseer fi Ilm at Tafsir, (4/40)]

Imam Abu Hayyan al Andalusi (Rahimuhullah) also says:

????? ????? ??????? ???? ??? ???? ???? ????

Translation: Bounty refers to Knowledge whereas Mercy refers to Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam) [Tafsir Al-Bahr al Muheet, (5/171)]

Imam Jalal uddin Suyuti (Rahimuhullah) says

????? ??? ????? ?? ??? ???? ??? ???? ????? ?? ????? ???: ??? ???? ?????? ?????? ???? ??? ???? ???? ????? ??? ???? ?????
{ ??? ??????? ??? ???? ???????? }
[????????: 107].

Abu Sheikh (rah) narrated from Ibn Abbas (RA) That Bounty of Allah means Knowledge, whereas Mercy means Muhammad (Salallaho alaihi wasalam) Allah Ta'ala said: We have sent thee not but as Mercy to Worlds (Al Anbiya: 107) [As-Suyuti in Dur al Manthur (4/330)]

Allama Aloosi (rah) explains that even Fadhl (i.e. bounty) refers toProphet Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wassalam)

????? ?????? ???? ????? ??? ????? ????? ??????? ???? ?????? ???????

Narrated by Al Khatib (rah) and Ibn Asakir (rah) thatBountry refers to An-Nabi (Alaih Salatu Wassalam) [Al-Alusi in Ruh al Ma'ani (11/141)] 



Proof No. 2  Qur'an states

?????? ?????? ??????? ????????? ???? ??????? ????????? ??? ????????? ??????????

That is the bounty of Allah; which He giveth unto whom He will. Allah is of Infinite Bounty (????????? ??? ????????? ?????????? )


Hadrat Abdullah Ibn Abbas (Radhi Allah) explains "Allah is of infinite bounty" as:

(Allah is of infinite bounty) by bestowing Islam and prophethood upon Muhammad (pbuh); and it is also said this means: by bestowing Islam upon the believers; and it is also said this means: by sending the Messenger and Scripture to His created beings.[Tanwir al Miqbas Min Tafsir Ibn Abbas]


Proof No. 3 Qur'an states regarding Yahya (a.s):


????????? ???????? ?????? ?????? ???????? ??????? ???????? ???????? ??????


Translation:  So Peace on him the day he was born, the day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life (again)! [Surah al-Maryum, (19:15)]



So the days when Anbiya are born are days of "Tranquility" in sight of Allah.


Proof No. 4  Qur'an states:

We sent Moses with Our signs (and the command). "Bring out thy people from the depths of darkness into light, and teach them to remember the "Days of Allah (?????????? ???????)." Verily in this there are Signs for such as are firmly patient and constant,- grateful and appreciative. (14:5)

What are the Ayyam of Allah? Imam al-Bayhaqi narrates in his Shu'ab al Iman that Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: The Days of Allah are his "Blessings and Signs" [Tafsir Ruh ul Ma'ani under 14:5]



Istadlal from Ahadith

Proof No.1

Book 006, Number 2606 (Sahih Muslim)

Abu Qatada Ansari (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah's Massenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on Monday, whereupon he said: It is (the day) when I was born and revelation was sent down to me.

This Hadith is also reported in by Imam al-Bahayqi  in his "Sunnan ul Kubra" (Vol. 4, pg. 300 Hadith no 8182, 8259), in the "Sunan" of Imam Nisai and the "Musnad" of Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal.

It is clear from this Hadith that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) was very happy about the day of his birth and so fasted out of gratitude.  Fasting is a form of worship, so one can celebrate this day by any form of ibada.  One can fast or hold gatherings or provide food to the poor, all being acts of worship.

Proof No.2

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 38: (Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated 'Ursa; Thuwaiba was the freed slave girl of Abu Lahb whom he had manumitted, and then she suckled the Prophet. When Abu Lahb died, one of his relatives saw him in a dream in a very bad state and asked him, "What have you encountered?" Abu Lahb said, "I have not found any rest since I left you, except that I have been given water to drink in this (the space between his thumb and other fingers) and that is because of my manumitting Thuwaiba."

Abu Lahab freed Thuwaiba on joy at birth of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam), even the worst of Kufaar and greatest of enemies is given relaxation in his Adhaab due to freeing Thawaiba by pointing with his finger, so Imagine the situation of a momin who rejoices on Mawlid, detailed explanation of this hadith shall be given in the last section of Verdicts from classical scholars. 


Proof No.3

Volume 2, Page No. 147, Hadith No. 1130 (Sahih Muslim, Dar ul Kutab al ILmiyyah)

Ibn Abbas "Allah be pleased with him" reported: The Prophet "Allah's blessing and peace be upon him" came to Madina and saw the Jews fasting on the tenth day of Muharram. They were asked about that. They replied: "This is the day, on which Allah made Moses and the children of Israel emerge victorious over Pharoah. So, we fast on it "OUT OF GLORIFICATION TO IT". The Prophet "Allah's blessing and peace be upin him" said: "We have more claim over Moses than you." So, he ordered Muslims to fast on it

If Jews glorify their days to venerate Musa (a.s) then we Muslims have more right to venerate and rejoice on day when Prophet (saw) was born, this is an accepted analogy as Ulama have derived this specific ruling from the hadith, which shall be mentioned in the last section with detail.

Proof No.4

Volume 1, Page No. 241, Hadith No. 448 (
Sunnan an Nasai'i)

Hadrat Anas bin Malik (ra) narrates that Prophet (saw) while mentioning his journey of Miraaj said: Jibril (a.s) asked me to get off from Buraak at Bethlehem and told me to say the prayer there, after which he said: Do you know where you have prayed (O Messenger of Allah)? You prayed at Bethlehem where Isa (a.s) "was born".

So the Mawlid and the places where Prophets (A.S) are born are amongst Sha'ir (sings to be venerated) of Allah. 


Proof from righteous Ulama and Fuqaha

1. Imam Ibn Kathir (Rahimuhullah) - The scholar revered most highly by Salafis/Wahabis in Tafsir & History.

He says regarding Shah Malik al-Muzzafar (rah) regarding whom Salafis spread deception by forging words of Ibn Kathir (rah) i.e. he was actually a Fasiq, cruel and Bidati ruler (Naudhobillah) but in reality Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) said this:

??? ??????? ???????? ??????? ??????? ??????? ?? ???? ???? ??? ??? ?????? ??????? ???? ?????? ???? ???? ?????? ????? ???? ?? ??? ????? ????? ?????? ?? ??? ????? ???? ?? ??? ??? ????? ???????? ??????? ???? ???? ?????? ?????? ?? ???? ????? ?????? ?? ??????? ????? ???? ?? ??? ???? ????? ????? ???? ????? ????? ????? ???? ???? ????? ????? ??? ??? ????? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ????? ?? ?????? ?????? ???? ??????? ?? ???? ?????? ?????? ?????? ??? ??? ???? ????? ??? ???? ???? ?? ????? ?? ???? ?????? ???????? ??? ??? ????? ??? ???? ??? ????? ??????????? ???????? ??? ????? ??? ??? ?? ??? ???? ?????? ?? ??? ??????? ??? ??? ?? ??? ?????? ???? ???? ??? ???? ????? ???? ????? ????? ??? ????? ??????? ??? ??? ????

Translation:  He was a generous, mighty master, and glorious ruler, whose works were very good.He built Jamiya al Muzaffari near Qasiyun'During Rabi ul Awwal he used to celebrate Mawlid ash Shareef (???? ?????? ?????? ?? ???? ?????) with great celebration, Moreover, he was benevolent, brave, wise, a scholar, and just person ' Rahimuhullah wa Ikraam ' Sheikh Abul Khattab (rah) wrote a book on Mawlid an Nabwi for him and named it At-Tanwir fi Mawlid al Bashir al Nazeer, for which he gave him 1000 dinars. His rule stayed till the Rule of Salahiya and he captured Aka and he remained a man worthy of respect.

Al-Sabt mentions that a person attending the gathering of Mawlid held by Muzzafar said: He used to fill the table with 5000 well cooked goats, 10,000 chickens, 100-thousand bowls (of milk) and 30,000 trays of sweets. [Tarikh Ibn Kathir, Al Bidayah Wan Nihaya Volume 13, Page No. 174]

2. Imam Shahab-ud-din Abul Abbas al-Qastallani (Rahimuhullah) the author of great Seerah book called Al-Muwahib al-Laduniya, he said:

When it is said that Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) was born at night time then the question arises which of the two nights is greater i.e. Night of Decree or Night of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam)'s birth?

The Night of Prophet (saw)'s birth is superior due to 3 reasons

First: He (salallaho alaihi wasalam) arrived (in this world) on the Night of Mawlid whereas Night of decree was granted to him (afterwards), therefore the arrival of Prophet (saw) is greater than what has been granted to him, hence night of Mawlid is higher in virtue. 

Second: If Night of decree is vitreous night because Angels descend in it, then Night of Mawlid has the virtue of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) being sent to world. The Prophet (saw) is superior to Angels, therefore night of Mawlid becomes superior.

Third: Due to night of decree, the Ummah of Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam) was given imminence, whereas due to Night of Mawlid all creations were given Fazilah, as Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) is sent as Mercy to worlds/creations (Quran 21:107), hence the blessing was made general for all creations.

Reference: Imam Qastallani ' Rahimuhuillah in Al Muwahib al Laduniya Volume 1, Page No. 145, Also Imam Zarqani ' Rahimuhullah in his Sharah of Al-Muwahib, Volume 1, Page Nos 255-256

Imam Qastallani (Rahimuhullah) also said:May Allah have mercy on the one who turns the nights of the month of the Prophet's birth into celebration in order to decrease the suffering of those whose hearts are filled with disease and sickness."[Al-Muwahib- Volume 1, Page No 148]


3. Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (Rahimuhullah) the Mujaddad (reviiver) of 9th century writes:

Translation: The reality of Mawlid is that people gather to recite Quran to the extent that is easy, also to discuss narrations which are regarding Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam), the signs which took place on his birth. Then dinning is arranged for them and they return without adding anything more to this "Bidat al Hasanah". The one who arranges it gets Thawab due to honoring Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) and showing gratitude on his birth [As-Suyuti ' Rahimuhullah in Al Hawi lil Fatawi, Volume 1, Page No. 292, Published by Maktaba al Asriya, Beirut, Lebanon]

Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (Rahimuhullah) answers why celebrating on birth supercedes the sorrow of Prophet (saw) passing away on same date.

Translation: The birth of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) is a great blessing for us and his death is very saddening for us too, however Shariah has ordered us to rejoice and thank Allah on blessings, whereas on calamity it has taught us to have patience while hiding it, this is why Shariah has told us to do Aqiqa on birth which is a form of being happy and thankful to Allah for giving us birth, but on death there is no concept of sacrificing an animal and even lamenting is forbidden. Hence in light of rulings prescribed by shariah one should rejoice in Rabi ul Awwal on birth of our beloved Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam)

4. Sheikh ul Islam and hadith Master of his age, Ibn Hajr Asqalani


The Sheikh ul Islam and hadith Master of his age, Ibn Hajr Asqalani was asked about the practice of commemorating the birth of the Prophet, and gave the following written reply: As for the origin of the practice of commemorating the Prophet's birth, it is an innovation that has not been conveyed to us from any of the pious early muslims of the first three centuries, despite which it has included both features that are praisweorthy and features that are not. If one takes care to include in such a commemoration only things that are praiseworthy and avoids those that are otherwise, it is a praise worthy innovation, while if ones does not, it is not. An authentic primary textual basis from which its legal validity is inferable has occured to me, namely the rigorously authenticated (sahih) hadith in the collections of Bukhari and Muslim that the Prophet came to Medina and found the Jews fasting on the tenth of Muharram 'Ashura ' [Husn al-Maqsad fi Amal al-Mawlid Page No. 63] [Continued in Next Page No 64]

Click Here for Scanned Page (57)


So he asked them about it and they replied: "It is the day on which Allah drowned Pharaoh and rescued Moses, so we fast in it to thanks to Allah Most high," which indicates the validity of giving thanks to Allah for the blessings He has bestowed on a particular day in providing a benefit, or averting an affliction, repeating one's thanks on the anniversary of that day every year, giving thanks to Allah taking * any various forms of worship such as prostration, fasting, giving charity or reciting the Koran. Then what blessing is greather than the Birth of the Prophet, the Prophet of Mercy, on this day? in light of which, one should take care to commemorate it on the day itself in order to confrom to the above story of moses and the tenth of Muharram, [but] those who do not view the matter thus do not mind commemorating it on any day of the month, while some have expanded its time to any of day the year, whatever exception bay e taken at such a view. [Husn al-Maqsad fi Amal al-Mawlid Page No. 64]

Click Here for Scanned Page (58)


I have derived the permissibility of Mawlid from another source of the Sunna [besides Ibn Hajar's deduction from the hadith of 'Ashura'], namely :The hadith found in Bayhaqi, narrated by Anas, that "The Prophet slaughtered a 'aqiqa [sacrifice for newborns] for himself after he received the prophecy," although it has been mentioned that his grandfather 'Abd al-Muttalib did that on the seventh day after he was born, and the 'aqiqa cannot be repeated. Thus the reason for the Prophet's action is to give thanks to Allah for sending him as a mercy to the worlds, and to give honor to his Umma, in the same way that he used to pray on himself. It is recommended for us, therefore, that we also show thanks for his birth by meeting with our brothers, by feeding people, and other such good works and rejoicing." This hadith confirms the aforementioned hadith of the Prophet's emphasis of Monday as the day of his birthday and that of his prophethood. [Husn al-Maqsad fi Amal al-Mawlid Page No. 64-65]

Translation: It is proven that Abu Lahab's punishment of fire is reduced on every Monday because he rejoiced on brith of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) and freed the slave-woman Thawba (RA) When Abu Lahab, whose eternal abode is hell fire and regarding whom whole surah of Tabat Yada (i.e. Surah Lahab) was revealed, he gets Takhfif in his Adhaab every Monday then Imagine the situation of a (momin) who has spent his life in rejoicing over birth of Prophet (saw) and died as a Mawhid [ Mawrid as Sadi Fi Mawlid al Hadi by Imam al-Dimishqi and Imam Suyuti in Hassan al Maqsad fi Amal al Mawlid, Page No. 66]

6. Imam Ibn Jawzi (Rahimuhullah)  the most strict scholar on Jirah wa Tadeel, even he wrote a complete book on Mawlid where he said:

In Haramayn (i.e. Makkah and Madina), in Egypt, Yemen rather all people of Arab world have been celebrating Mawlid for long. Upon sight of the moon in Rabi ul Awwal their happiness touches the limits and hence they make specific gatherings for Dhikr of Mawlid due to which they earn immense Ajr and Success.[Biyan al Milaad an Nabwi, Page No. 58]


7. Shah Wali Ullah Muhadith Dhelvi (Rahimuhullah) the great Imam of al-Hind mentions one of his all time wonderful experiences as:

I took part in a gathering of Mawlid inside Makkah where people were sending Darood and Slaam upon Prophet (Peace be upon him) and mentioning the incidents which took place during the time of your birth (before and after) and those which were witnessed before you were appointed as a Nabi (such as Nur eliminating from Bibi Amina RA, she seeing Nur, woman proposing to Abdullah RA on sight of Nur on his forhead etc...) suddeny I saw Nur to have enveloped one group of people, I don't claim that I saw this with my bodlily eyes, nor do I claim that it was spiritual and Allah knows the best regarding these two, however upon concentration on these Anwaar a reality opened upon me that these Anwaar are of those Angels who take part in such gatherings, I also saw Mercy to be decending along with Anwaar of Angels [Fayudh al Haramayn, Pages 80-81] 



8. Shah Abdul Aziz Muhadith Dhelvi (Rahimuhullah) the author of leading book written on refutation of Rafidhis (i.e. Tohfa Athna Ashriyah) he said:

The Barakah of Rabi ul Awwal is due to birth of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) in this month, the more this Ummah sends Darud and Salaam and arrange for (sadaqa for the poor), more will they be blessed [ Fatawa al Azizi 1:123]


9. Mullah Ali Qari (Rahimuhullah) the author of Sharh al Mishqaat and magnificent Hanafi scholar, he said:

Allah said: There hath come unto you a messenger, (one) of yourselves (9:128), In this It is pointed towards honoring the time when Prophet (saw) arrived amongst us, therefore one should do dhikr (of Quran) to thank Allah. As for Samah and playing is concerned then that which is Mubah (i.e. allowed) could be made part of Mawliddue to happiness without any harm [Muallah Ali Qari in his Al Mawlid an Nabi, Page No. 17]


10. The great Mufasir and Sufi, Hadrat Ismail Hiqqi (Rahimuhullah) said:

To celebrate Mawlid is amongst the great tributes to Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam), but the condition is that it should be clear of evil things. Imam Suyuti (rah) has said: It is Mustahab for us to be happy on birth of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) [Tafsir Ruh ul Bayan, Volume 9, Page No. 52]


11.The Poet of the East, Allama Muhammad Iqbal (Rahimuhullah) said:

Milad un Nabi (salallaho alaihi wasalam) is amongst the sacred days for Muslims. According to my understanding it is very crucial for nourishment and treatment of human minds and hearts, Hence it is necessary for Muslims to keep in their sight the Aswa ur Rasul (salallaho alaihi wasalam). In the following three ways they can keep their emotions intact.


1. The first way is of sending Darood and Salaam which is part and parcel of Muslim's life, they try to find every possible time to send Darood. I have come to know about Arab world that if 2 people get into a fight in market then the third says loudly: Allah humma Sali Ala Sayyidna wa Barik Wassalim, hearing this the fight stops immediately, this is the power which Darood holds therefore it is necessary to embed the thought in heart of the person on whom Darood is sent (i.e. Prophet Salallaho alaihi wasalam)

2. The second way deals with Gatherings i.e. Muslims should gather in great number and one person out of them (i.e. leader) who is fully versed regarding the Life and works of Pride to the worlds (i.e. Prophet Salallaho alaihi wasalam) should mention them in detail so that the devotion to follow the way of Prophet (saw) awakens in hearts of Muslims, for this purpose we have also gathered today.

3. The third way is although difficult but still it to be mentioned is very important. It is that Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) is remembered in such a way that our hearts (and ways) become Mazhar (signs) of different aspects of Nabuwah i.e. the feeling which was there about 1300 years ago due to literal presence of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam), the same feeling arises in our hearts too. [Asaar e Iqbal, Pages. 306-307]


11. Maulana Abdul Hai Luckhnawi (Rahimuhullah) said:

When a kafir of Abu Lahab's calibre gets rewarded upon rejoicing on birth of Prophet (saw), then an Ummati who gets happy on his birth and spends due to his love for him would of course be established on high standards, just like it has been mentioned by Ibn Jawzi (rahimuhullah) and Sheikh Muhadith Haq Dhelvi (Rahimuhullah) [Abdul Hai in Majmua al Fatawa, Volume 2, Page No. 282]


Khalil Ahmed Sahranpuri in Al-Muhannad broke all barriers when he said:: What are we, not even a single Muslim can consider Dhikr of birth of Prophet (saw), rather dhikr of his shoes, RATHER DHIKR OF URINE OF HIS DONKEY TO BE BIDAH OR HARAM [Al Muhannad, Page No. 60, Question No. 21]

12.The famous scholar of Ghair Muqalideen, Nawab Saddiq Hassan Khan Bhopali said:

What is wrong in it if we cannot do dhikr of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam)'s Seerah, his Hidaya, his Birth and his death evreyday, then we should do it every month and in days of Rabi Ul Awwal and they should not be left empty.

He writes further: A Person who does not get happy upon incidents of Mawlid and does not thank Allah for such a great blessing then "SUCH A PERSON IS NOT MUSLIM" [Ash Shamama tul Anbarah min Mawlid al Khayr ul Barah, Page No. 12]

Note: No wonder our Salafis have not even spared their own people in Takfir, the above fatwa is an open takfir upon all Salafis who make sad faces on Mawlid and try to refute it (Note: Its has been mentioned in the beginning that Shaytan cried loudly on birth of Prophet saw)

13. Sheikh ul Islam Imam Ibn Hajr al Haytami (Rahimuhullah) writes:

The gatherings of Mawlid and Adhkaar which take place during our time, they are mostly confined to good deeds, for example in them Sadaqat are given, Dhikr is done, Darud and Salam is sent upon the Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) and he is praised. [Imam al Haythami (rah) in Fatawa al Hadithiyyah, Page No. 202] 


Counter refutation of Salafis

Counter refutation of Salafi Muslims, they say: Mawlid was not practised or arranged by any of the Sahaba, nor is there any proof of it being done by Tabiyeen, these are the Islaaf whom we follow and choosing their way is the safest path.

Answer: There are many things which were not practised by Sahaba and Tabiyeen, but later Ulama derived rulings on them looking at the principles, Therefore If anything does not contradict the principles of Shariah then it has always been allowed, for example the knowledge of Jirah wa Tadil in hadith, the knowledge of Asma ul Rijaal etc. The point is that their Asal is found in Shariah, similarly the Asal for rejoicing on Mawlid is found in Quran itself.

Ques)Mawlid is Bidat al Dhalalah, Prophet (saw) said in rigorously authentic ahadith that All bidahs are misguidance and all misguidance are in the fire.

Ans: This hadith is not general but rather specific as classical scholars have explained, such terminology is used in Shariah many times, for example Quran states: "Verily you and what you worship apart from Allah are the fuel of hell" (Qur'an 21:98)

We all know that Jesus is worshipped by Christians, now if we make this ayah general then Naudhobillah Jesus shall become fuel of hell fire too (Audhobillah Min Dhalik), therefore we have to understand the reality behind words of Prophet (saw), the Bidahs which Prophet (saw) forbade were all new innovations which contradicted shariah, the dalil for this could be found in Sahih Bukhari

Volume 3, Book 49, Number 861: (Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "If somebody innovates something which is not in harmony with the principles of our religion, that thing is rejected."

The Important Usool

we know from many ahadith that Prophet (saw) allowed new matters in deen, like few sahaba recited Fatiha on bite of snake, they had no knowledge of it from Prophet (saw), but on coming to Prophet (saw) it was approved, some people still argue that it was allowed in presence of Prophet (saw), whatever he allows and forbids we have to follow, the answer to this is that Prophet (saw) could never contradict in his sayings, If he has laid down a principle that all innovations are evil in mutlaqqan terms then there is no Jawaz of him accepting some himself, hence It is necessary to check everything according to principles of Shariah.

One more answer to this is that Umar (ra) called combining sahaba behind 1 Qari as "Na'imul Bidah (i.e. Excellent Bidah)"... this is proof from Nass that every bidah is not bad, on this some people also argue that Umar (ra) was referring to Lughwi Bidah not Shari'i, they are asked to bring proof from hadith itself that Umar (ra) differentiated bidah between Lughwi and Shari'i, above all Usman (ra) started the second Adhaan for Jumma, Salafis reply to this as: They were Khulafa ar rashideen and we are bound to follow them as hadith states so, the answer to this is same i.e. had every bidah been evil then our pious predecessors would not have contradicated themselves.

Ques) The day of Prophet (saw) 's birth is not confirmed to be 12th of Rabi Ul Awwal, rather his day of death is confirmed to be 12th Rabi Ul Awwal, hence to rejoice on a sad day is a wrong thing.

First of all those who prove Mawlid always believe that Mawlid is not restricted to 1 date only, you can rejoice on any day, secondly the early most Seerah books like Seerat Ibn Ishaq (rah), Ibn Hisham (rah), Tabaqat Ibn Sa'd (rah) confirm the date of birth to be 12th Rabi ul Awwal, so does Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) in his book Sirat ar Rasul where he calls it mainstream opinion and calls other opinions as weak...  


Ques).Mawlid is root cause of filthy things in ummah like drinking, intermixing of women, music etc'

Ans: This type of ignorance is hurled at Muslims when opposite party is left with nothing to say, This is also answered in the article by the way, i.e. If someone does a wrong deed in Masjid this does not mean we stop going to Masjid atall, secondly would these things become Halal if not done in Milad? Hence Mawlid itself is allowed

Ques) Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) called Mawlid as a grave innovation in Al Bidayah wan Nihaya, Malik Muzzafar ud din was as Bidati, Fasiq ruler?

Ans: It's a forgery as proven above

I saw some verh serious talks going on.
What is celebrating birthday of our prophey Mohammad S.A.W means here?
There will be no music or gossips but here for ou Prophet Mohammad S.A.W l, alone or with people, we will read Kuran, Surah Yasin or Darood Shareef at home. furthermore we will recite naats then we will have food together. These are things that we must do in every day routine but unfortunately we don't.

I don't think there is anything wrong in it. In fact it is very good. Through this very important date of our life we get close to our Prophet Mohammad S.A.W and Islam.

Be happy and let other be happy too.

Luv u all<333

@hukshila I rarely commnt in any posts but as this caught my attention I felt like doing so.. sorry 2 disagree dear.. bt u said in uk they don't celebrate milad-un-Nabi.. its false info sum1 gave u! I lived a couple of months there n they do celebrate it. They do maulids there n also in 2 european countries..1 which I lived a few years back n 1 I'm currently living! N m aware that it's nt only in india n pakistan that this special month is celebrated but all across the world!!! Abt saudi arabia I will simply say what was said b4.. Those who drink alcohol, practice gambling n much more which I think it's improper 2 state here at the moment n r puppets in the hands of USA n israel should never b set as an example 2 muslims!!   its sad bt its true.. but.. then again.. I'll only give u 1 advice as a sister... when all thingz seem confusing.. follow ur heart!! 4 Allah is in our heartbeats.. n Allah will surely iluminate our hearts! Aameen

yes i totally agree with you its a very shamefull thing for us hum sab muslims kbhi bhi kisi islamic baat par agree nahi karte sab ki apni apni baat hoti hai ek dosre koo ghlat khena shru kar dete hai union is strength iseliye hum apni  stregth kho chukay hai Unhappykisi baat par tu sab agree hua kare but asa nahi hota its very sad koi islamic post ban jaye 50 per wish karte hai aur 50per ghusa hotay hai i am totally confused CryOuchits bad hamre paas quraan hai phir bhi kisi cheez mai shak karne ki gunjaish hai
