All praise is for Allah Almighty, Lord of all creation. He created the most beloved with perfection, elevated His status beyond imagination. He prepared Him with qualities in abundance, including vast knowledge, and in all, competence. He sent Him as a Messenger to every nation, on a specific day fixed by the most Benevolent. He revealed upon him a book of excellence, known as the mother of all revelation; they all declared His birth, for mankind, a divine form of guidance, surely a great gift from the most Beneficent. Salutations be upon his eminence, and also a shower of mercy, and be it endless.

Celebrating the birth of Allah’s most beloved is without doubt permissible and encouraged according to the unanimous consensus of our predecessors. Its origin shines clearly from the divine book of Allah and the traditions of our great Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) as the midday sun.

Unfortunately, as soon as the month of Rabi' al-Awwal arrives, a group of insolent people knowingly and intentionally start circulating confusions and deviancy amongst the Muslims regarding the celebrations of the Mawlid (Blessed birth of beloved Prophet - SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and the gullible masses are trapped in their fallacies (may Allah protect us).

This Book, "Mawlid — Sunnah or Bid'ah" will in sha Allah clear all doubts rumored by the notorious opponents of Mawlid Sharif. Following is the list of ten most famous delusions and objections made by the opponents.

THE TEN QUESTIONS:

  1. It is a known fact that our Prophet is the most superior of all the Prophets and Messengers (Alayhim as-Salam) and also that he is the seal of all the Prophets (Alayhim as-Salam). He left no stone unturned in conveying the religion to us and rendering precious advice to us. If the "Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)" was a divinely inspired act, then surely the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) would have commanded the Muslims to it, or at least, either he or his beloved Sahabah would have practiced it.
  2. Surah Maidah: we have perfected your religion ... so why do you Sunnis add to religion; don’t you believe this Quranic verse?
  3. There’s a hadith in Tirmizi Shareef which says any Bid’ah in religion leads one astray, so why do you Sunnis add this Bid’ah of celebrating?
  4. All this Milaad celebration is just a Bid’ah and innovation introduced by a modern day Indian called Ahmed Raza Khan.
  5. How come Imam Abu Hanifa or Imam Bukhari didn’t celebrate milaad?
  6. Is fixing date for milaad shareef permissible?
  7. Celebrating the birth is a way of the Christians for Jesus, why do you Sunnis light up your houses and put decorations like the Christians?
  8. You shouldn’t celebrate Milaad on 12 Rabi ul Awal as that’s the date the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) passed away.
  9. The contemporary form of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) apart from being a manifestation of Bid’ah also encompasses other evils such as the intermingling of sexes, usage of musical instruments and many other such evils. The most abhorring and shocking evils in these functions are the acts of shirk that take place. With hollow claims of "Hubb-e-Rasool (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)" [love for Rasulullah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam)] entreaties and supplications are made to beings other than Allah, namely to Ambiyaa (Alayhim as-Salam).
  10. I turn my lights off and some of my friends keep lights off on 12 Rabi ul awal because we believe it has no significance to our lives – how will celebrating the Milaad help us in this life and the hereafter?
THE ANSWERS: All these objections are intensely and authentically refuted in detail by Mufti Zahid Hussain al-Qadiri, Khalifah of Hadrat Taaj al-Shari’ah Mufti Muhammad Akhtar Rida al-Qadiri . The book can be downloaded for free from:
