Lets see what the Wahabi's Imam has to say about Meelad:
Nawaab Siddeeq Hasan Bhopali who is the Imam of the Wahabis and their so called Shaikh-ul-Islam.
His writing is now presented so that his followers can contemplate on their beliefs. He writes
in ‘Ash-Shamamatul Anbariya’:
“He who does not feel joy at the Meelad of the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam) and
does not show happiness at this gaining of mercy, then he is not a Muslim”. He continues to
“What evil is there in the practice that if you cannot mention the Meelad every day, you do it
once a month? On any particular day, sit down and do zikr or mention the Seerah or the birth
of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam). Also, do not leave the days of Rabi-ul-
Awwal without this remembrance”.
Dear reader(s)! The leader of the Wahabis, Siddeeq Hasan Bhopali has laid a fatwa of kufr on
that person who does not show happiness at the Meelad. Now, the Wahabi and Deobandi
people can think for themselves about their belief in respect to Nawaab Siddeeq Hasan’s
evidence. ‘Ash-Shamamatul Anbariya’ is a book which has been certified by Molvi Ashraf
Ali Thanwi (Deobandi).
Dear reader(s)! As it has been proven from verses of the Qur’an, blessed ahadith, sayings
of the Khulafa and beliefs of the pious scholars of Islam, the Meelad Shareef is most
definitely a beneficial celebration. Even the Wahabi and Deobandi scholars have
All the scholars and books that are mentioned in this article are Mustanad, that is, the
whole of the Muslim ummah agrees upon their writings. Hence, denying some of the text
Also, the Meelad is an excellent means of propagating the religion of Islam and
propagation is a mandatory act. A question to put to the opponents of Meelad Shareef is
this: If the Meelad Shareef is an evil act and takes one away from Islam, then can you
point out one aspect of it that is un-Islamic and against the Shari’ah? All elements of the
Meelad Shareef are in complete accordance to the Shari’ah and its rulings. Lectures,
sending Durood and praising the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam) in poetry and
all components of Meelad Shareef are commendable in the Islamic law. Hence, the
Meelad Shareef cannot possibly be an un-Islamic practice.
May Allah (Subhanahu Wata'ala) show light to the opponents of Meelad Shareef and
May He enable the Muslim ummah to commemorate the Meelad Shareef until the Day
* May Allah Subhanahu Wata'ala forgive me If I have made a mistake at any instance *
Jazakallah for your time!
