Mawlid Un-Nabī şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam | Hadith 2 and 3

Second Hadith

The Beloved Prophet şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam also specified his own birthday in the same way. In a Hadīth narrated by Abu Qatada Ansarī rađiyAllāhu ánhu, he reports that Allah’s Beloved Messenger şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam was asked about fasting on Monday, whereupon he said:

It is (the day) when I was born and revelation was sent down to me.

Reference: Sahih Muslim, Bk 6, Number 2606.

This Hadīth is also reported in by Imām Abū Bakr al-Bayhaqī in his Sunan al-Kubra (Vol 4, Pg 300, Hadīth no. 8182, 8259); in the Sunan of Imām Nisa’ī and the Musnad of Imām Ahmad bin Hanbal.

It is clear from this Hadith that the Beloved Messenger şallAllāhu álayhi wa sallam 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 ibâdât. One can fast or hold gatherings or provide food to the poor, all being acts of worship.

Miraculous Happenings Before The Birth Of Beloved Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam)

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated that as soon as the labour pains of childbirth started, an angel came and ask her to drink from a cup in his hand. This drink was whiter than milk and sweeter than honey. As soon as she drank this heavenly drink her pain disappeared and all fear left her.

Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha then saw the gates of Heaven open. The Angels came for the adoration of the new babe. Three Angels went towards the Kaa’ba. One Angel stayed over the Kaa’ba, one went to the East and other went towards the West. A light then Spread out lighting up the Universe. In this miraculous light, Syedah Aamena Radi Allahu anha stated , She could see distinctly the palaces of Palestine and Syria.

Then Four unkown ladies appeared miraculously before Aamena Radi Allahu anha to attend to the childbirth.

The First, who was very tall, said, she was Eve Radi Allahu anha, the mother of mankind.

The Second was Sarah Radi Allahu anha, the mother of the Prophet Issac Alaih salaam, and the grandmother of Jacob Alaih salaam, whose children were the Israelites, to pave the way for the forgiveness of the Jews, if they followed this child Muhammad Salla Allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam.

The Third was Princess Hagar of Egypt, the mother of Prophet Ishmael Alaih salaam. She came with Otto ( a sweet – smelling essence ) from Heaven, to express her love for this great grand-child from the descendants which fulfilled Allah’s ( Azawajal ) promise to her husband Prophet Abraham Alaih salaam, ” the world would be blessed through thy seed.”

The Fourth was Queen Asiya Radi Allahu anha, daughter of Mazahim. She was the wife of the Pharaoh of the time of Moses. She was that queen of Egypt who brought up Moses from a little child when he was found floating in the basket on the river Nile. She was the first person in the Pharaoh’s court who belived in Allah ( Azawajal ) upon seeing how small miraculous snake made by the staff of Moses ate up the bigger snakes of the Egyptian magicians. Whereupon the enraged Pharaoh tortured her severely, but in spite of this she refused to give up her faith.

In the hands of these four great nurses was Muhammad Salla allahu ta’ala’alayhi wa sallam born with his foreskin already circumcised miraculously, with his navel cord already separated miracculously pure and clean without any kind of  blood or filth on it. Read the rest of this entry »
