Having read the words of those who had lived with the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam and had closely watched his every action, we shall now turn to some great scholars of Islam, whose writings are considered most authentic in Islamic affairs. Pay heed to these to dispel any doubts that you may have regarding the subject. All these great scholars firmly believed that celebrating Mawlid Sharif of the Holy Prophet SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam is authentic and lawful.

Sayings of the Prominent Scholars about Celebrating Mawlid

1. After relating Abu Lahab’s relief on setting Thuwaibha free, Hadrat Maulana Shah Abdul Haq Dehlvi in his famous book Madarij an-Nabuwwah says:

"This event provides a clear proof to those who celebrate Milad Sharif by rejoicing and alms giving on the night of the birth of the holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam), People of Makkah gather on 12th Rabi al-Awwal to is it the house in which the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) was born. Only because he was his nephew, he has been receiving, in spite of this being an idolater, the benefits of thus rejoicing in his grave every Monday, then how much more blessing will fall to the lot of him who acknowledges the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) as the beloved of ALLAH and His true Prophet, and celebrates Milad Sharif repeatedly.” [Madarij an-Nabuwwah, Vol. 2, Page 34, Publisher: Zia al-Quran Publication]

As the poet says:

غیرت

غیرت دار کبھی بد کاری (زنا) نہیں کرتا۔

جو باتیں زیادہ کرے گا وہ غلطیاں کرے گا اور جو غلطیاں کرے گا اس میں حیا کم ہو گی۔ جس میں حیا کم ہو گی اس میں پرہیزگاری کم ہو گی۔ جس میں پرہیزگاری کم ہو گی اس کا دل مردہ ہو گا اور جس کا دل مر گیا وہ جہنم میں گیا۔

Dear Readers, in the previous email, we provided the proofs from Qur’an and Hadith over the legitimacy of Celebrating the Blessed Birth (Mawlid Sharif) of Beloved Habeeb Kareem Alaihi afDalus Salati wat Tasleem. Now let us examine the Aqeeda (belief) of the Glorious AsHaab al-Kiraam in this concern, who are guiding beacons for us.

What Does the Glorious Companions Believe?

هاجرت إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقدمت عليه منصرفه من تبوك، فأسلمت، فسمعت العباس بن عبد المطلب يقول: يا رسول الله إنى أريد أن أمتدحك، فقال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: قل، لا يفضض الله فاك
After gaining victory and success in Ghazwa Tabook when Rasoolullah (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) arrived in Madinatul Munawwara, Hadrat Sayyiduna Abbas (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) requested permission from the Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam) to read a few stanzas in his praise then Mercy on the Mankind (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him) said, "My dear Uncle! Go ahead. May Almighty Allah keep your mouth well."

This is what Sayyiduna al-`Abbas ibn `Abd al-Muttalib said:

من قبلها طبت في الظلال وفى مستودع حيث يخصف الورق
ثم هبطت البلاد لا بشر أنت ولا مضغة ولا علق
بل نطفة تركب السفين وقد ألجم نسرا وأهله الغرق
تنقل من صلب إلى رحم إذا مضى عالم بدا طبق
وردت نارا لخليل مستترا في صلبه أنت كيف يحترق
ثم احتوى بيتك المهيمن خندف علياء تحتها النطق
وأنت لما ولدت أشرقت الارض ونارت بنورك الافق
فنحن في ذلك الضياء وفى النور وسبل الرشاد نخترق

… Before you came to this world,
you were excellent in the shadows and in the repository (i.e. loins)
in the time when they (Adam and Eve) covered themselves with leaves.
Then you descended through the ages…
When you were born, the earth shone
and your light illuminated the horizon.
We travel in that illumination and in the light and in the paths of right guidance.”

Permissibility of Celebrating Mawlid from Qur’an and Hadith

Permissibility of Celebrating Mawlid
from Qur’an al-Karim & Ahadith!!

https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/423256_10150499738135334_672380333_9370539_911703549_n.jpg

All Praises is due to Almighty Allah SubHanuhu wa Ta’ala, Peace and Blessings be upon the most perfect of creations, His Beloved Habeeb, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam his Noble Family and the Illustrious Sahaba Ridwanullahi Ta’ala Alaihim Ajma’een and all the pious servants of Almighty Allah!!

In present era we are suffering sects and scholars who imposes verdicts of Shirk and Bid’at on those who celebrate Mawlid an-Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam with great enthusiasm and integrity and due to which the simple and straightforward people who are less in knowledge of Qur’an and Hadith get nervous whether they are following the Truth or not.

Here are ample proofs from Qur’an al-Kareem and Ahadith of Beloved Prophet Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him which shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Celebrating Milad-un-Nabi Sallallaho Alaihi wa Sallam is absolutely Lawful.

Commemorating the Noble Birth of the Beloved Prophet [SallAllaho Alayhi wa Aalihi wa Sallam]


From: Noori
https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/735056_10151196914235334_1598627291_n.jpg

The issue of the celebrations of the noble birth of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon Him) sparks much debate and questions are raised as to whether it is correct or otherwise to observe it. Indeed a lot has been argued on this subject, hence the need to clarify why Muslims from all over the world celebrate this occasion as an “Eid” (literally meaning happy occasion or festival).

It is firmly established from various Qur’anic Verses, Prophetic Ahadith, Sunnah of the Companions, historical facts, and by consensus of the Ulama, that innovations could either be blameworthy or meritorious.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/181004_499085755333_2022911_n.jpg

This article is not an attempt to define the categories of “Bid’ah” – (what is a Good Innovation or a Blameworthy Innovation etc) – for that is an entirely different subject. What this article shall prove, with Allah’s help, is that this commemoration is not an innovation (Bid’ah) at all!! So the question of whether such a commemoration is good or blameworthy, simply does not arise!

The issue of mixing these commemorations with forbidden (Haraam) acts is one that applies not only this, but universally to all forms of worship. Needless to say, forbidden acts must be abstained from at all times, not only during these commemorations. We cannot, obviously, leave any sort of worship because some people might mix it with forbidden acts. For example – offering Salaah is compulsory, but if the Niyah (intention) is for showing off (display), then this act of display is forbidden – but not the Salaah. So if the person indulging in these acts (in our example display) is to be advised, he should be advised to abstain from display – but not advised to forego Salaat altogether. Another example is that if a person steals something from a mosque, should we try to prevent the theft or should we just stupidly demolish the mosque?

The Following will make it amply clear that:-

  • Allah, the Almighty, has Himself commemorated Mawlid of the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him)
  • Allah has gifted mankind with innumerable favours due to the Mawlid of the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him), and that these favours shall continue. So this commemoration by Allah is still ongoing.
So when such radiant and undisputable proofs are available from the Holy Qur’an what is the need to search
for “historical” evidence as to when and where it was actually done by the Ummah?

The birth of our Beloved Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, together with Its miracles have been transmitted to us by his mother Sayyidah Aamina Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha and those in attendance.

و كونه رافعاً رأسه عندما وضعته شاخصاً ببصره إلى السماء ، و ما رأته من النور الذي خرج معه ولادته ، و ما رأته إذ ذاك أم عثمان بن أبي العاص من تدلي النجوم ، و ظهور النور عند ولادته ، حتى ما تنظر إلا النور
As our beloved Prophet, praise and peace be upon him, was born a radiant light accompanied him and he lifted his head towards the heavens and the mother of Othman’s Abil-As’s son witnessed stars lowering themselves and a light so bright appeared that she could see nothing other than light.

Abu Nu’aym reports from Abdullah bin Abbas Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhuma, who narrated that the mother of the Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam, Sayyidah Amina Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anha used to state,

لما خرج من بطني فنظرت اليه فاذا انابه ساجد ثم رايت سحابة بيضاء قد اقبلت من السماء حتى غشيته فغيب عن وجھي ، ثم تجلت فاذا انابه مدرج في ثوب صوف ابيض وتحته حريرة خضراء وقد قبض على ثلٰثة مفاتيح من اللؤلوء الرطب واذا قائل يقول قبض محمد على مفاتيح النصرة ومفاتيح الربح ومفاتيح النبوة ثم اقبلت سحابة اخرٰى حتى غشيته فغيب عن عيني ثم تجلت فاذا انابه قد قبض على حريرة خضراء مطوية واذ قائل يقول بخٍ بخٍ قبض محمد على الدنيا کلھا لم يبق خلق من اھلھا الادخل في قبضته
“When the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was born, he fell straight into prostration. Then I saw a white cloud from the sky appearing and covering the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam such that HE SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam disappeared from me. When the cloud appeared, I saw that the Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam was covered in a white woolly shawl and there was a green mat spread on the floor. Within the hands of the Messenger SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam there were three keys made of diamonds and there was an unseen voice heard saying, ‘The Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has grasped the key of giving victory, the key of giving benefit and the key of Prophethood.’ Then I saw another cloud which enclosed the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam such that he disappeared from my view and it became illuminated. I saw that the Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam is holding a folded piece of green silk in his blessed hands and an unseen voice was heard was saying, ‘How great! How great! The Messenger of Allah SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam has grasped the whole world; all the creation has entered into his grasp, with none left out.’”

تیسرا اسلامی ماہ–ماہِ ربیع الاوّل


نثار تیری چہل پہل پر ہزار عیدیں ربیع الاول
سوائے ابلیس کے جہاں میں سبھی تو خوشیاں منا رہے ہیں

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/19864_309650260333_1580337_n.jpg

وجہ تسمیہ:
اسلامی سال کا تیسرا مہینہ ربیع الاول شریف ہے۔ اس کی وجہ تسمیہ یہ ہے کہ جب ابتداء میں اس کا نام رکھا گیا تو اس وقت موسم ربیع یعنی فصل بہار کا آغاز تھا۔ یہ مہینہ فیوضات و برکات کے اعتبار سے افضل ہے کہ باعث تخلیق کائنات رحمۃ اللعالمین احمد مجتبیٰ محمد مصطفی علیہ الصلوٰۃ والسلام نے دنیا میں قدم رنجہ فرمایا۔ ١٢ ربیع الاول شریف بروز پیر، مکۃ المکرمہ کے محلہ بنی ہاشم میں آپ کی ولادت باسعادت صبح صادق کے وقت ہوئی۔ ١٢ ربیع الاول ہی میں آپ ہجرت فرما کر مدینہ منورہ تشریف لائے۔ اسی ماہ کی دس تاریخ کو محبوب کبریا صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے ام المؤمنین سیدہ حضرت خدیجۃ الکبریٰ رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہا سے نکاح فرمایا تھا۔
مشائخ عظام اور علمائے کرام فرماتے ہیں کہ حضور پر نور شافع یوم النشور صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم کا وقت ولادت باسعادت لیلۃ القدر سے بھی افضل ہے۔ کیوں کہ لیلۃ القدر میں فرشتے نازل ہوتے ہیں اور ولادت پاک کے وقت خود رحمۃ للعالمین شفیع المذنبین صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم تشریف لائے۔ لیلۃ القدر میں صرف امتِ مسلمہ پر فضل و کرم ہوتا ہے اور شب عید میلاد النبی صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم میں اللہ تعالیٰ نے تمام مخلوقات پر اپنا فضل و کرم فرمایا ۔ جیسا کہ ارشاد ربانی ہے کہ
