Celebrating Birthday of Prophet Muhammad[Peace and

Blessings be Upon Him] is Biddat(innovation in Deen)
February 16, 2011 at 5:35pm

Praise be to Allaah.
There is nothing in the Quraan to say that we should celebrate the Mawlid or birthday of the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him). The Prophet himself (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not do this or
command anyone to do it, either during his lifetime or after his death. Indeed, he told them not to exaggerate about
him as the Christians had exaggerated about Jesus (upon whom be peace). He said: Do not exaggerate about me
as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam. I am only a slave, so say, The slave of Allaah and His
Messenger. (Reported by al-Bukhaari). What has been reported is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah
be upon him) made the day of his birth a day of worship, which is different to celebration. He was asked about fasting
on Mondays, and he said: That is the day on which I was born and the day on which I was entrusted with the Mission
or when I was first given Revelation. (Reported by Muslim, al-Nisaai and Abu Dawood).
Moreover, we know that the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) were the people who loved the Prophet
most. Was it reported that Abu Bakr, who was the closest of people to him and the one who loved him the most,
celebrated the birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? Was it reported that Umar, who
ruled for twelve years, or Uthmaan, did this? Was it reported that Ali, his relative and foster son, did this? Was it
reported that any of the Sahaabah did this? No, by Allaah! Is it because they were not aware of its importance, or did
they not truly love the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? No one would say such a thing except
one who has gone astray and is leading others astray.
Did any of the imaams Abu Haneefah, Maalik, al-Shaafii, Ahmad, al-Hasan al-Basri, Ibn Seereen do this or
command others to do it or say that it was good? By Allaah, no! It was not even mentioned during the first and best
three centuries. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said in a saheeh hadeeth: The best of
mankind are my generation (or my century), then those who come after them, then those who come after them. Then
there will come a people who will not care if their testimony comes before their oath or vice versa (i.e., they will not
take such matter seriously). (Reported by al-Bukhaari, Muslim and al-Tirmidhi). The celebration of the Prophets
birthday appeared many centuries later, when many of the features of true religion had vanished and bidah had
become widespread.
Thus this celebration became a sign of ones love for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? But
can it be possible that the Sahaabah, the imaams and the people of the best three centuries were unaware of it, and
it was only those who came later who were aware of its importance?! What the Quraan tells us is that love of the
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is demonstrated by following the guidance he brought. Allaah
says (interpretation of the meaning):
Say (O Muhammad): If you (really) love Allaah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And
Allaah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
Say: Obey Allaah and the Messenger. But if they turn away, then Allaah does not like the disbelievers. [Aal Imraan
The first aayah explains that love is just a claim, but the proof of sincerity is following what the Prophet (peace and
blessings of Allaah be upon him) brought. The second aayah reaffirms the importance and necessity of obeying
Allaah and His Messenger. Hence Allaah ended the aayah with a very stern warning in which those who refuse to
obey are described as kaafirs, and Allah does not love the disbelievers. We ask Allaah to keep us safe from that. The
Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us of the danger of not obeying him, and the danger of
adding to what he brought. The celebration of Mawlid or his birthday is indeed an addition to what he brought as all
the scholars agree. He said: The best of speech is the Book of Allaah, and the best of guidance is the guidance of
Muhammad. The most evil of things are those which are newly-invented (in religion), and every innovation is a going
astray. (Reported by Muslim and al-Nisaai).
We ask Allaah to protect us from bidah and to bless us by helping us to follow. Allaah knows best. May Allaah bless
our Prophet Muhammad.

Mohammad Irfaan Exactly! - the real love for Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) lies in what our Nabi (PBUH)
actually did and ordered us to do!

Touseef Amin Actually we don`t know the date of Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W) Birthday (Somebody say; 2,6,8,10,12) but the date of His
(S.A.W) departure is confirmed i.e. 12...Then i said: it is not allowed in Islam to celebrate one`s death, then one of my frnd gave me hadith
from Saheeh Muslim saying that the departure of a Prophet is blessing on a nation in which he was bestowed. So it`s complicated....but its
not Biddah.

Sz Ali Pti Eid means happy day, christian Arabs use this word for any holiday. Showing your love for the prophet is not biddat. Just like
Imam Malik used to walk in Madina barefeet. Was it a biddat? Milad is not part of prayer, its not an obligation. Its not a sin if you dont
celebrate it, then how come its a biddat
