1930Milad Day Celebrations?? میلاد النب ی منانے کا جواز؟
- Jan 2, 2014Dear All, Assalaam-Alaikum WRWB,
As we know, all Sunnis/Salafis are happy every month, every minute, every second that Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam was sent to this earth as a Mercy (Rahmah) for the whole Universe.. And We express our happiness by following his sunnah..Not by Dancing on the Road with music and DJ etc.Shayateen will only claim that they are happy only once in a Year which is the day on which Rasoolullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam left this world.. And they express their happiness by acting like Jaahil Mushrikeen..Please realize the fact that there is no consensus on the exact date of birth of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam.. but it is 100% sure that Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam died at 12 Rabiul-Awwal.Let us examine, analyse and research on this day that the people specify for the Prophet’s birthday. Is it actually the exact day on which the prophet was born?Imam Ibn Kathir in his book “Al-Bidaayah Wan-Nihaayah” has narrated all the differing opinions of the scholars:1. The Prophet was born on the 2nd of Rabiul-Awwal. 1. قيل الليلتين خلتامنه2. The Prophet was born on the 8th of Rabiul-Awwal. 2. وقيل لثمان خلون منه3. The Prophet was born on the 10th of Rabiul-Awwal. 3. وقيل لعشر خلون منه4. The Prophet was born on the 12th of Rabiul-Awwal. 4. وقيل لثنتي عشره خلت منه5. The Prophet was born on the 18th of Rabiul-Awwal. 5. وقيل الثامن عشر من شهر ربيع الاول6. The Prophet was born on the 17th of Rabiul-Awwal. 6. وقيل لسبعه عشره خلت منه7. The Prophet was born on the 12th of Ramadhanul-Mubarak. 7. لثنتي عشره ليله من شهر رمضان8. The Prophet was born on the 9th Rabiul-Awwal. 8. التاسع من شهر ربيع الاولAllamah Safiur-Rahmaan Mubarakpuri (Hafidhahullah) chose the last opinion of 9th Rabi Al-Awwal in his book “The Sealed Nectar”.Respectful reader! From the above statements you have come to know that the honourable Imaams could not specify an actual birth date for the Prophet. How then is it possible that the so-called scholars of today specify a birth date? What evidence do they refer to? Whereas the Imaams, Scholars of History, and the Muhaddeetheen, could not even specify an exact date?We do say in response that, in reality, those who celebrate the Prophet’s are actually celebrating the Prophets death. This is because the date of the death of the Prophet was on the 12th Rabiul-Awwal.=============================================================The Historical glance and reality in celebrating the Prophet’s (ﷺ)birthday:=============================================================Six centuries of Islam had passed and there was no origin of this innovated act. The era of the companions passed by, the era of the Tabe’een passed by, the period of the great Imaams of hadeeth and Jurists passed by, and none of them perceived or were endowed with this innovated act.However, it was perceived and introduced by an extravagant king by the name of Muzafar-Adeen (died 630 A.H.) who employed a scholar to legalise this celebration. He paid a reward of one thousand Dinaars to this worldly scholar who was devoted to worldly pleasures. The worldly scholar’s name was Umar Bin Dahiyyah (died 633 A.H.). He was the culprit responsible for introducing this innovated act in the year 604 A.H. (seventh century of Islam).Let us now examine and analyse the rulings and judgments that the ancient researching scholars have made regarding the extravagant king and the worldly scholar.The great historian Ahmed Bin Muhammad Misree writes: “Muzafarud-Deen was an extravagant king who would celebrate the Prophet’s birthday. He was the first person to introduce this act.” Moreover, nearly every year he would spend approximately three hundred thousand rupees on this innovated act.Imam Ibn Kathir has written regarding the innovating scholar Umar Bin Dahiyyah saying that he was a liar. People discarded his narrations and held themselves back from trusting them. For this reason he was extremely humiliated and degraded.Hafiz Ibn Hajar Asqalaani says: about Umar Ibn Dahiyyah: “He was very impudent and would insolently speak ill of the great Imaams and the Salaf (the predecessors). He possessed a filthy and evil tongue. He was extremely foolish, stupid, and arrogant. He had very little insight of the affairs of the Deen and was lazy.”A final word: May Allah, The Glorified and Exalted, give all the Muslims the ability to abstain from all types of innovation and obscenity and guide all Muslims to follow the Qur’aan and Sunnah according to the Understanding of the noble companions. Ameen!
Quran, Sunnah and Understanding of Sahaabah... GoodDesires, Innovations and Blind Following (Taqleed)... BaadConclusion: The date of Birth is not determined to sure that the prophet born on 12th Rabbil Awwal but it is sure thatthe prophet died on 12th Rabbil Awwal.So, Muslims should avoid the celebration, because the evident are clear, secondly it is permissible as per Islamic teaching to do or celebrate anything without reference.There is no clear instruction as per Quran and Hadith, if this so important then there should be clear a teachings. So stop this all bad practices.
