Commemorating the Noble Birth of the Beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings be upon Him)

Madina Shareef

The issue of the celebrations of the noble birth of our Holy Prophet Mohammed (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 Ahadeeth, Sunnah of the Companions, historical facts, and by consensus of the Ulema, that innovations could either be blameworthy or meritorious.

Madina Shareef

This article is not an attempt to define the categories of “Bidat” – (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 (Bidat) 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 Salaat is compulsory, but if the Niyah (intention) is for showing off (display), then this act of display is forbidden – but not the Salaat. 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? Read the rest of this entry »

Mawlid un Nabi | The Lawfullness of Celebrating the Prophet’s Birth

By reciting mawlid, Muslims explain about Rasûlullâh’s (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) birth, the Mi’râj and his life, and remember and praise him. It is necessary for every Muslim to love Rasûlullâh very much. He who loves Rasûlullâh much remembers him, repeats his name and praises him very frequently. The hadîth ash-sharîf narrated by ad-Dailamî and quoted in Kunûz ad-daqâ’iq declares, “The one who loves very much remembers the beloved very frequently.” All ’ulamâ’ of Islam have written in detail that it is necessary to love Rasûlullâh very much.

Even the Wahhâbite book “Fat’h al-majîd” notes this fact:

“It is declared in a hadîth sharîf, ‘One’s îmân is incomplete unless he loves me more than his children, his parents and everyone.’ That is, ‘His belief is not perfect,’ he meant. It is wâjib for him who loves Allah to love His Prophet. And he also has to love Allah’s pious servants.”

The recitation of a mawlid is an ’ibâda is proven with documents in the book An-ni’mat al-kubrâ ’ala ’l-’âlam fî mawlid as-Sayyid al-walad al-Âdam by Ibn Hajar al-Hîtamî, in Ar-raddu ’alâ man ankara qirâ’at al-mawlidi ’n-Nabî by Jalâl ad-dîn as-Suyûtî, in Jawâhîr al-bihâr (Part Three) and Hujjat-Allâhi ’ala ’l-’âlamîn (pages 233-9) by Yûsuf an-Nabhânî, in Ithbât al-mawlid by Ahmad Sa’îd al-Mujaddidî and in Sharh al-Mawâhib al-laduniyya (Part One, pages 136-40) by ’Allâma Muhammad az-Zarkânî. Sa’îd al-bayân, the book of mawlid written in Urdu by Ahmad Sa’îd al-Fârûqî al-Mujaddidî, and the Turkish Mevlid Kirâetinin Fazîleti (The Virtue of Reciting Mawlid) by Sayyid ’Abdulhakîm Effendi (rahmat-Allâhi ’alaih) are very valuable.

In the Persian book Tas’hîh al-masâ’il, which was written in 1266 A.H. (1850), Mawlânâ Muhammad Fadl ar-Rasûl al-Badâyûnî (rahimah-Allâhu ta’âlâ), one of the prominent scholars of Islam in India, refuted the book Miata Musa’îl by Muhammad Is’hâq, an Indian man of religious profession who had sold himself to the Wahhâbîs. On page 253 of his book, Fadl ar-Rasûl wrote, “The recitation of mawlid was not practised in the first three centuries [of Islam]; it was introduced later. Therefore, the ’ulamâ’ disagreed on whether it was permissible to congregate for a mawlid; their words did not conform with one another’s. This disagreement of the ’ulamâ’ has been dealt with in detail in the book As-sîrat ash-Shâmî by Muhammad ibn Yûsuf ash-Shâmî (rahimah-Allâhu ta’âlâ), who passed away in Egypt in 943 A.H. (1536). Yet, only the opposing views are reported and no preference is made in this book. Nevertheless, he quoted many ’ulamâ’ who, had said that congregating for a mawlid was mustahab. He also noted that his master had refuted those who opposed it. If, leaving the majority aside, the mawlid congregation is accepted as permissible on account of a few opposing ones, confidence in many of the affairs of fiqh will lessen,” and quotes the book As-sîrat ash-Shâmî: Read the rest of this entry »

THE CURSE OF THE HOLY PROPHET Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam

It would be a surprise if one said that Allah’s Noble Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam , the most merciful amongst the creation, the owner of the loftiest character would get angry and curse someone. It is true that the master of mankind never took revenge for his own sake, never even got angry for personal reasons. But when the matter was one of breaching the divine law, he never let it pass – he used to get angry, and sometimes even invoked Allah’s curse on Allah’s enemies.

On the day of Al-Khandaq (the battle of the Trench), the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam said, “They (i.e. pagans prevented us from offering the middle Prayer till the sun had set. May Allah fill their graves, their houses (or their bodies) with fire.” Bukhari Shareef, Muslim Shareef

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam used to recite the following invocations during Qunut: “O Allah! Save Salama bin Hisham. O Allah! Save Al-Walid bin Al-Walid. O Allah! Save `Aiyash bin Rabi`a O Allah ! Save the weak Muslims. O Allah! Be very hard on Mudar tribe. O Allah! Afflict them with years (of famine) similar to the (famine) years of the time of Prophet Joseph.” Bukhari Shareef

When Utaiba, son of Abu Lahab got separated from Kulsoom the daughter of the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam , he came to him and said, “I have rejected your religion, and divorced your daughter. Neither should you have any liking for me, nor do I have any love for you”. Upon this, the Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam prayed, “O Allah! Set a dog amongst your dogs upon him (Utaiba bin Abu Lahab).” Tibrani in Kabeer (Utaiba was later sent by his father Abu Lahab, on a mission to Syria. Whilst he slept in a field, surrounded by camels and comrades to protect him from wild animals, a lion sought him out from others and tore him apart.)

While Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam was praying beside the Ka`ba, there were some Quraish sitting in a gathering. One of them said, ‘Don’t you see this? Who amongst you can go and bring the dung, blood and the abdominal contents of the slaughtered camels of the family of so and so and then wait till he prostrates and put that in between his shoulders?’ The most unfortunate amongst them (`Uqba bin Abi Mu’ait) went away and when Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam prostrated, he put them between his shoulders. The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam remained in prostration and they laughed so much so that they fell on each other. A passerby went to Fatima Radi Allahu anhu, who was a young girl in those days. She came running and the Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam was still in prostration. She removed them and cursed the Quraish on their faces. When Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam completed his prayer, he said, ‘O Allah! Take revenge on Quraish.’ He said so thrice and added, ‘O Allah! take revenge on `Amr bin Hisham, `Utba bin Rabi`a, Shaiba bin Rabi`a, Al-Walid bin `Utba, Umaiya bin Khalaf, `Uqba bin Abi Mu’ait and `Umar a bin Al-Walid.” `Abdullah (the narrator) added, “By Allah! I saw all of them dead in the battle field on the day of Badr and they were dragged and thrown in the Qalib (a well) at Badr: Allah’s Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam then said, ‘Allah’s curse has descended upon the people of the Qalib (well). Bukhari Shareef

The Holy Prophet Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam invoked Allah for forty days to curse the murderers from the tribe of Ral, Dhakwan, Bani Lihyan and Bam Usaiya who disobeyed Allah and his Apostle Salla Allahu ta’ala alayhi wa sallam. Bukhari Shareef
