The Noble Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) has forbade from sitting at a dining mat that includes drinking of alcohol. (Sunan Abi Dawud, Vol. 3, Page 489, Hadith 3774)

Keep refraining from alcohol. Iman (Faith) and the habit of drinking alcohol cannot coexist in one’s heart; (if one will do so) out of Iman and alcohol, one will eject the other. [Al-Ihsan bit-Tartib Sahih Ibn Hibban, Vol. 7, Page 367, Hadith 5324]

When Allah declared eating of fat (of kidneys, intestines and stomach) Haram for Jews, they sold it and consumed earnings from it. So, when Allah declares anything Haram for some nation, He also declares earnings from it Haram. [Sunan Abi Dawud, Vol. 3, Page 387, Hadiht 3488]

Anything that causes intoxication when consumed in more quantity is also Haram in small quantity. [Sunan Abi Dawud, vol. 3, pp. 459, Hadith 3681)

Description of the Beloved Prophet's Blessed Physic
It is impossible to turn a blind eye to the fact that Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Praise and Peace be upon Him) is the most worthy and the greatest of all mankind, and that he is the most perfect of all, adorned with the most excellent virtues and qualities.

وأحسن منك لم تر قط عيني
I haven’t seen the lovely personality like you

وأجمل منك لم تلد النساء
And no mother have given birth to such a wonderful personality

خُلِقْتَ مبرءاً من كل عيب
You are created free from every fault

كأنك قد خُلِقْتَ كما تشاء
You were created, as you wanted to be

His physical description and character have been reported by many of his Companions and he was the most handsome man ever created, surpassing Prophet Yousuf (Alayhis Salam) for whom the women of the city cut their hands,

فلما سمعت بمكرهن ارسلت اليهن واعتدت لهن متكا واتت كل واحدة منهن سكينا وقالت اخرج عليهن فلما راينه اكبرنه وقطعن ايديهن وقلن حاش لله ما هذا بشرا ان هذا الا ملك كريم
And when she heard of their secret talk, she sent for them and prepared cushioned mattresses for them and gave a knife to each one of them and said to Yusuf, "Come out before them!" When the women saw him they praised him and cut their hands, and said, "Purity is to Allah - this is no human being; this is not but an honorable angel!"  [Surah al-Yousuf, Verse 31]

Sayings of the N0ble Companions
about the beloved Prophet's blessed Physic

The following sayings are but a fraction of the multi narrations of the Companion's description of the Prophet (Praise and Peace be upon Him) although they are but a sampling, they are sufficient to convey the perception of his handsomeness. Everyone who met him said they had never seen anyone like him.

When the Companion Sayyiduna Bar'a Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu saw a lock of the Prophet's hair resting on his red robe he commented,

ما رأيت من ذي لمة في حلة حمراء أحسن من رسول
"I have never seen anyone with a more beautiful lock of hair than his resting on a red robe."

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu said,

ما رأيت شيئا أحسن من رسول الله ، كأن الشمس تجري في وجهه ، وإذا ضحك يتلألأ في الجدر
"I have never seen anyone more handsome than the Messenger of Allah, it was as though the sun was shining upon his face and when he laughed it reflected from the wall."

كنت أخيط في السحر فسقطت مني الابرة فطلبتها فلم أقدر عليها فدخل رسول الله فتبينت الإبرة بشعاع نور وجهه
"I was sewing when the needle fell. Despite searching, I was unable to find it. It was just then that the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) came. From the light emanating from the Prophet's blessed face, I was able to see the needle.." [Khasais al-Kubra, Vol. 1, Page 109 | Sharha Shifa Hashiya Naseem ar-Riyadh]
None like you was ever seen or created;  Authority stands in your person consummated!!

Someone asked Jabir Ibn Samura Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anho,

كان وجهه مثل السيف ؟ فقال : لا ، بل مثل الشمس ، والقمر ، وكان مستديرا
"Was his face like a sword?" He replied, "No, it was like the sun and the moon, and round." [Sahih Muslim, Vol. 4, Page 1823]

Umm Ma'bad Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha, the lady from whom the description of the Prophet (Praise and Peace be upon Him) was more profuse, said,

أجمل الناس من بعيد ، وأحلاه ، وأحسنه من قريب
"Even from a distance he was the most beautiful of people, and as he drew near it was apparent that he was the most handsome." [Dalail an-Nabuwwah lil Bayhaqi, Vol. 1, Page 279]

Abi Hala's son said,

يتلألأ وجهه تلألؤ القمر ليلة البدر
"His face glowed like the full moon." [Shamail Tirmidhi, Page 21]
Your face is as bright as the full moon; Let your grace and light fall on me soon!!

Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anhu states,

إذا تكلم رئى كالنور يخرج من بين ثناياه

The fourth khalifa of Islam, Hadrat Sayyiduna Mawla Ali al-Murtuda (may Allah honor his face), said at the end of his description of the Prophet (Praise and Peace be upon Him)

من رآه بديهة هابه ، ومن خالطه معرفة أحبه ، يقول ناعته : لم أر قبله ، ولا بعده مثله
"Anyone who came upon him by chance became filled with timidity towards of him and those who kept company with him loved him."
[Shamail Tirmidhi, Page 21]

May Allah illuminate my heart and yours, and increase our love for this Noble Prophet (Praise and Peace be upon Him) and keep us firm on the righteous path of Ahl as-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah... Aameen!!

Mawlid: Sunnah or Bid'ah? | Answers to Ten Questions regarding the Mawlid
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.

Mawlid — Sunnah or Bid’ah?
Answers to Ten Questions regarding the Mawlid
by Mufti Zahid Hussain al-Qadiri (may Allah preserve Him)

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.


  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:

Reward For Every Letter Of The Holy Qur'an

The Messenger of Allah (Sall+Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said,

“Whoever recites a letter of the Book of Allah (the Qur'an) he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a tenfold reward. I do not say that Alif-Laam-Meem are one letter; but Alif is a letter, Laam is a letter and Meem is a letter.”

~Recorded in Sunan Tirmidhi, Sunan Daarimi

There are 361, 267 letters in total in the Holy Qur’an. Thus, upon the recitation of the whole Qur’an one shall receive 3,212,670 rewards (good deeds).

The Prophet's Privileged Prayer

The Holy Prophet, the Intercessor of the Sinners (Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon Him) said:

“Although thousands of prayers of the Prophets are accepted, they are also bestowed with one special prayer from Allah – that they may ask whatever they desire and it will certainly be granted. All the Prophets up to Prophet Eisa have utilised their privileged prayers in this world whereas I have saved it for the hereafter – and that is my Intercession for my Ummah on the day of judgement. My intercession is for all persons of my Ummah who have left this world with faith.” [Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 2, Page 932]

Allahu Akbar!! O the sinners of this Ummah! Do you not see the extreme compassion and mercy of our Master the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) upon you? For he was bestowed three such prayers from Allah the Supreme – to seek whatever he wished – and he did not seek anything for himself, but assigned them just for you. He sought two things in this world – these two were also for you – and has reserved one for the hereafter – for your dire need on that day, when except for our compassionate & merciful Master (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) there will be none providing help, none removing your calamities.

Praise be to Allah! And what has the Ummah done in lieu of his mercy? Some raise doubts about his high status, some are sceptical of his power of intercession, some equal his rank to themselves, some get upset when he is glorified – while some allege acts of love to be inventions and some declare acts of respect and honour to be polytheism!

May Allah save and protect us... Aameen!!

The Greatest In Rank

Imam Abu 'Abd Allah Muhammad ibn Idris as-Shafi'i {May Allah have Mercy upon him} said:

"The greatest in rank are those who do not know their own status, and the most righteous/beneficial/virtuous of them are those who do not know their own virtue."

{Siyar A'lam an-Nubala' ~ The Lives of The Noble Figures ~ Volume 10/99}

Short Or Long-lasting Ease

Imam al-Hasan al-Basri {May Allah have Mercy upon him} said:

“To endure short-lived difficulties that are followed by long lasting ease, is better than hurrying for a short-lived ease that is followed by ever-lasting hardship.”

{Hilyatul' Awliyah ~ Volume 2/134}

Jan 24, 2014

The Grave Of Secrets

Imam ‘Abd al-Wahhab ash-Sha’rani {May Allah have Mercy upon him} said:

"From the ethics of the Salaf {Righteous Ancestors} was that they would hide that which was secret. If they heard anything about another person they did not pass it on to him but acted as if they didn’t know. The following saying is well known:

“Qulub ul-Abrar, Qubur ul-Asrar.“

“The hearts of the righteous are the graves of secrets.”

{Tanbeeh al-Mukhtareen ~ The Admonition of the Neglectful ~ Translated by Muhammad Bashir al-Ankarvi}

Keenest Desire To Catch A Glimpse

Abu Huraira RađiyAllāhu ánhu reported Allah's Messenger (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) as saying:

"The people most loved by me from amongst my Ummah would be those who would come after me but everyone amongst them would have the keenest desire to catch a glimpse of me even at the cost of his family and wealth."

~ Sahih Muslim: Book 040: Hadith Number 6791 ~

False Dream

Narrated Ibn Umar Radi Allahu Anhu Allah’s Messenger (Sallal laahu Alaihi wasallam ) said, ‘The worst lie is that a person claims to have seen a dream which he has not seen.”
(Hadith No. 7043, Book of Interpretation of Dreams, Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 9).

Maulidi - PT 3 (Kiswahili)

Natumai hamjambo na mmepata bahati ya kujumuika katika shamra shamra za Maulidi (mazazi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
Tunaendelea na risala kuhusiana na sifa za Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam kama ilivyo ndani ya Quran na Hadithi na pia masuala ya wapingao Maulidi.
Baada ya kumshukuru Allah na kumtakia Rahma Mtume Muhammad Swallallahu Alaihi wasallam, aya hapo juu ya 128 kutoka Sura At Tawbah (9), inayozungumzia kuletwa kwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
TAFISIRI: Hakika amekujieni Mtume kutokana na nyinyi wenyewe, yanamhuzunisha yanayo kutaabisheni, anakuhangaikieni sana; kwa waumini ni Mpole nan a mwenye huruma.
Wanaopinga Maulidi daima huwadanganya Waislamu kwa kusema kuwa eti hakuna dalili yoyote ya kusherehekea Maulidi bali hiyo imebuniwa hivi karibuni tu. Siyo hivyo tu bali husema pia kuwa eti kushurehekea Maulidi ni kama kuwaiga wakristo katika kusherehekea krismasi!! Watu hao wanatakiwa wachunguze historia sahihi na kurejea kwa Allah mara moja. Zifuatazo ni baadhi tu ya matukio yaliyonukuliwa:-
1)    Mwanachuoni maarufu Mulla Ali Qari ameandika tabia ya watu wa Madina na kuandika: Watu wa Madina walikuwa wakiandaa na kuhudhuria mikusanyiko ya Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam kwa furaha na mapenzi makubwa.
2)    Mwanachuoni mwingine Ibn Jauzi anasema: Watu wa Makkah na Madina, Misri, Yemen, Syria na wa Miji ya Mashariki na Magharibi ya Uarabuni walikuwa wakiandaa hafla ya kusherehekea mazazi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Walianza kusherehekea pindi tu mwezi ya Mfungo Sita (Rabi ul Awwal) huandama, basi huoga na kisha huvaa vazi waliopenda mno, hupaka manukato, hutoa sadaka kwa furaha na hujitahidi kusikiliza Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Kwa kufanya hivyo, waliambulia mafanikio makubwa, kama ilivyothibitishwa kuwa faida kubwa hupatikana mwaka mzima katika kusherehekea Maulidi, faraja na amani, njia mbalimbali za uchumi, ongezeko la watoto na mali, amani katika miji na ridhaa na amani majumbani.
3)    Mwanachuoni mwingine Sheikh Yusuf bin Ismail An Nabahani amesema: Kila mwaka, wakazi wa Makkah walikusanyika mahali alipozaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam usiku wa kuamkia mazazi yake.
4)    Katika kitabu cha “Fuyudh al Haramain” imeelezwa: Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam yalisherehekewa na watu wa Makkah ambao walipata Baraka nyingi kwa hilo.
5)    Katika gazeti la Al Qibla ya Makkah imeelezwa: Usiku wa kuamkia Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam sherehe hufanyika Makkah na wakazi wa Makkah huita siku hiyo kuwa YAUM AL EID MAULUD UR RASULULLAH SWALLALLAHU ALAIHI WASALLAM (siku ya Idi ya Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Watu hupika chakula. Mkuu wa Mji wa Makkah na Kamanda wa jeshi  pamoja na jeshi lao hukusanyika mahala pa kuzaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam na husoma Qasida. Mishumaa huwashwa katika mstari mmoja kutoka Msikiti Mtukufu wa Makkah hadi mahala pa kuzaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, maduka na nyumba njiani hapo pia hupambwa. Watu husoma Qasida kutwa nzima. Mwezi 11 Rabi ul Awwal usiku baada ya Sala ya Isha-I mkusanyiko wa Maulidi hufanyika. Kuanzia Sala ya Maghrib ya mwezi 11 Rabi ul Awwal hadi Sala ya Al-Asri ya mwezi 12 Rabi ul Awwal, baada ya kila sala, salamu na mizinga 21 huwasilishwa (hufyatuliwa).
6)    Mwanahistoria wa karne ya 7, Sheikh Abu Al Abbas Al Azafi, na mwanae, Abu Al Qasim Al Azafi, wameandika kwenye kitabu chao Al Durr Al Munazzam : Mahujaji wachamungu na wasafiri wamethibitisha kuwa siku ya Maulidi, hakuna shughuli inayofanyika mjini Makkah – si kununua wa kuuza – isipokuwa watu wanajishughulisha kuhudhuria sehemu takatifu alimozaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Siku hiyo Al Kaaba hufunguliwa na watu huizuru.
Ibm Batuta nae, mwanahistoria wa karne ya 8, anaandika katika kitabu chake “Rihla” kuwa: Baada ya kila sala ya Ijumaa na siku ya Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, Mlango wa Al Kaaba hufunguliwa na kiongozi wa Banu Shayba – kabila iliyohifadhi funguo wa Mlango wa Al Kaaba – na siku ya Maulidi, Jaji Mkuu wa Makkah wa Shafi-I, Najm-al-Din Muhammad ibn Al-Imam Muhyi Al-Din Al-Tabari, hugawa chakula kwa ukoo wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam na kwa watu wa Makkah.
Maswali / maoni yanakaribishwa.

Maulidi - PT 2 (Kiswahili)

Natumai hamjambo na mpo katika maandalizi ya shamra shamra za Maulidi (mazazi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
Tunaendelea na risala kuhusiana na sifa za Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam kama ilivyo ndani ya Quran na Hadithi na pia masuala ya wapingao Maulidi.
Baada ya kumshukuru Allah na kumtakia Rahma Mtume Muhammad Swallallahu Alaihi wasallam, aya hapo juu ya 15 kutoka Sura Al Maidah (15), inayozungumzia kuletwa kwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
TAFISIRI: Enyi watu wa Kitabu! Amekujieni Mtume wetu anaekufichulieni mengi mliyokuwa mkiyaficha katika kitabu na anaesamehe mengi. Bila shaka imekujieni kutoka kwa Allah Nuru na Kitabu kinachobainisha.
Allah alipotaka kumtuma Mjumbe wake Ardhini, Aliumba udongo wa Adam Alaihissalaam. Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam amesema: “Mimi nilikuwa Mtume tangu Mtume Adam Alaihissalaam alikuwa baina ya udongo na maji”.
Kutoka bapa la Uso mmoja hadi nyingine, Nuru hii iliwekwa kwenye bapa la bwana Abdullah RadwiyallahuAnhu, baba wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Nuru hiyo baadae ikakaa kwenye tumbo la Mama Amina RadwiyallahuAnha, mama wa Mtumu Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam. Katika ujauzito wa miezi 9, hakuhisi tabu wala kuona alama yoyote iliyo ya kawaida kwa kila mjamzito. Pia kila mwezi alipata habari njema kutoka kwa Mitume wa Allah. Mama Amina RadwiyAllahu Anha anaelezea kuwa siku ya kuzaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ilipofika, ilikuwa wakati wa Alfajiri ya Jumatatu alipoona kundi la watu ikitelemka kutoka mbinguni wakiwa na bendera 3. 1 waliiweka kwenye ua la jumba lake, 1 juu ya paa la Al-Kaaba na 1 juu ya Masjidul Aqsa. Baadae wanawake wachache walimjia na kujitambulisha. 1 alikuwa Mama Maryam, Mama wa Mtume Isa Alaihissalaam, wa 2 alikuwa Aasiya mke wa Firauni, naa 3 alikuwa Mama Hajra mke wa Mtume Ibrahim Alaihissalaam. Wanawake wengine walikuwa watukufu wa Peponi. Wote hao walikuja kumhudumia. Baada ya matukio hayo ndipo Nuru ya ulimwengu, Mtume Muhammad Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam alizaliwa. Quran ikatangaza kuwa: “Hakika imekuja kwanu kutoka kwa Allah Nuru na Kitabu kilicho wazi”.
Wanazuoni mashuhuri wameeleza kuwa usiku wakuzaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ni bora zaidi kuliko usiku wa LaylatulQadri, na kuwa mwezi wa Rabi-ul-Awwal ni tukufu zaidi kuliko mwezi wa Ramadhani. Sababu yake ni kuwa usiku waLaylatul Qadri, Quran imetelemka wakati usiku wa kuzaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, amezaliwa yule iliyomtelemkia Quran.
Ulimwengu mzima ulifurahi kakuzaliwa kwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, na Al-hamdulillah hata leo wapenzi wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam wanaadhimisha siku hiyo kwa furaha kubwa. Hata hivyo, kuna maadui wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam wasemao kuwa kusherehekea ni upotovu na ubadhirifu. Allah awajaalie akili na imani sahihi. Allah atujaalie sisi sote mapenzi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
Amin              Amin              Amin
Allah Amesema ndani ya Quran Tukufu : “Sema (Ewe Mtume uwaambie) kwa Fadhila za Allah na Rahma Zake inatakiwa wafurahikie, hiyo ni bora kwao kuliko waliyoyakusanya”. (Sura Yunus: 58)
Katika aya hii Allah Anatuagizia tufurahikie pindi tunapopata Fadhila na Rahma zake. Bila shaka, Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ni Fadhila na Rahma kubwa kutoka kwa Allah. Allah Anatuambi : “Hatukukutuma (Ewe Mtume) ila uwe Rahma kwa walimwengu”. (Sura Ambiya: 107)
Allah Amesema ndani ya Quran Tukufu : Ewe Mwenye Kusimulia habari za uficho (Ewe Mtume) Hakika sisi tumekutuma uwe Shahidi na Mbashiri na Mwonyaji. Na mwitaji kumwendea Allah kwa idhini Yake, na jua lenye kuangaza. Na wabashirie Waumini kwamba wana fadhila kubwa itokayo kwa Allah”. (Sura Ah-zaab: 45-47). Allah pia akasema : “….na uwakumbushe siku za Allah …” (Sura Ibrahim: 5)
Wafasiri wanasema kuwa “siku za Allah” inamaanisha siku ambamo Allah Amewazawadia binadamu; kama vile kuongoka kwa Bani Israil na utumwa wa Firauni. Hivyo zawadi kubwa kuliko zote kutoka kwa Allah ni kuletwa (au kuzaliwa) kwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam na hii inamaanisha kuwa Maulidi ya Mtume ni siku ya Allah; kwa hiyo ni lazima ikumbukwe/ itajwe. Pia Allah Anasema : “Hakika Allah Amewafanyia wema mkubwa Waumini kwa kuwaletea Mtume aliye miongoni mwao …” (Sura Aali Imran: 164).

Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam mwenyewe alipoulizwa kuhusu kufunga (swaum) kwake kila siku ya Jumatatu, alijibu : “ni siku nilimozaliwa” (Al Muslim). Hii inaonyesha kuwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam alifunga siku ya Jumatatu kumshukuru Allah kuzaliwa kwake. Pia Abu Jahal alipokufa, mmoja katika ndugu zake (Sayyidina Abbas RadwiyAllahu Anhu – Amii yake Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) alimuota na kumuuliza hali yake baada ya kufa kwake. Abu Jahal alimjibu: ninaadhibiwa sana ila kila siku ya Jumatatu ninapunguziwa adhabu, pia ninaposikia kiuu basi hunyonya kidole changu cha shahada na husikia nafuu kidogo. Baba wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam ni kaka yake Abu Jahal, hivyo siku alipozaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, Abu Jahal aliletewa taarifa na mtumwa wake (Thuwaibah) kuwa nyumbani kwa kaka yako amezaliwa mtoto wa kiume! Kwa furaha hiyo, Abu Jahal alimuashiria kwa kidole chake cha shahada kumuacha huru mtumwa wake huyo. Wanazuoni wanasema ikiwa kafiri mkubwa na adui mkubwa wa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam anapata nafuu katika adhabu yake kwa kufurahia tu kuzaliwa kwa mtoto wa kiume, je Muislamu akisherehekea Maulidi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam hatapata faida?? (Al Bukhari). Wanaelezea pia kuwa mwenye kusherehekea Maulidi kwa heshima na mapenzi ya Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam, basi atazawadiwa na Allah. Wanaelezea pia kuwa mikusanyiko ya Maulidi huwa ya heshima na mapenzi kwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam tu. Pia ieleweke kuwa shetani alilia mno alipozaliwa Mtume Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam na hivyo wanazuoni wanasema kuwa mwenye kuhuzunika na Maulidi, basi anamfuata shetani na huu si mwenendo wa Waislam.

History of Mawlid an-Nabi (Sall-Allahu Alaihi wa Sallam) Celebrations
Another cheap trick (Irony) the insolent opposition attain is a lame accusation towards the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama'ah that, some ignorants from India and Pakistan of the last few decades have innovated the celebrations of Mawlid an-Nabi Sharif being influenced by the Hindu Celebration culture and that it was never ever celebrated before and there is no history of Mawlid Celebrations (Curse of Allah upon the liars). Let them have some glimpses of enthusiastic and joyous Mawlid celebrations from the very true and evident history.

..:: History of Mawlid Celebrations ::..

1. Allama Mulla Ali Qari narrating the routine of the people of Madina Munawwarah writes,

“The people of Madina Munawwarah (May Allah have Mercy on them) used to arrange and attend Mawlid gatherings with great enthusiasm and sincerity on the occasion of Mawlid Sharif.” [Mawrid ar-Rawi Fi Mawlid an-Nabawi, Page 29]

2. Ibn al-Jawzi says:

"People of Haramain Sharifayn (Makkah Mukarramah and Madinah Munawwarah) and Egypt and Yemen and Syria and of the eastern and western cities of Arabia hold functions in celebration of the birth of the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam), they rejoice at the sighting of the moon of Rabi al-Awwal, bathe and put on their best dresses adorn themselves in various ways, put on scent, and give alms with great joy, and exert themselves in listening to the Mawlid of the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam). By doing so, they themselves attain to success, as it has been proved that by celebrating the Mawlid of the Prophet (SallAllahu Alaihi wa Sallam) much good accrues the whole year round, security and comfort, greater means of livelihood, increase in children and in wealth, peace in cities and contentment and peace in homes."

12. Shah Waliullah Dhelvi mentions one of his all time wonderful experiences as:

I took part in a gathering of Mawlid inside Makkah where people were sending Darood and Salam upon Prophet (Peace be upon him) and commemorating the incidents which took place during the time of the blessed birth (before and after) and those which were witnessed before He was appointed as a Nabi (such as Noor eliminating from Bibi Amina Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anha, she seeing Noor, woman proposing to Sayyiduna Abdullah Radi Allahu Ta'ala Anho on sighting the Noor on his forehead etc...) suddenly I saw Noor to have enveloped one group of people, I don’t claim that I saw this with my bodily eyes, nor do I claim that it was spiritual and Allah knows the best regarding these two, however upon concentration on these Anwaar a reality opened upon me that these Anwaar are of those Angels who take part in such gatherings, I also saw Mercy to be descending along with Anwaar of Angels. [Fuyudh al-Haramayn, Pages 80-81]

13. Shaykh al-Islam Imam Ibn Hajr al-Haytami (Alayhir Rahmah) writes:

The gatherings of Mawlid and Adhkaar which take place during our time, they are mostly confined to good deeds, for example in them, Sadaqat are given, Dhikr is done, Durood and Salam is sent upon the Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and he is praised. [Fatawa al-Hadithiyyah, Page 202]

14. The 7th-century historians Shaykh Abu al-Abbas al-Azafi and his son Abu al-Qasim al-Azafi wrote in their Kitab al-Durr al-Munazzam:

Pious pilgrims and prominent travelers testified that, on the day of the Mawlid Sharif in Makkah al-Mukarrama, no activities are undertaken, and nothing is sold or bought, except by the people who are busy visiting the noble birthplace, and rush to it. On this day the Holy Ka’abah is opened and visited.

15. The famous eighth-century historian, Ibn Battuta relates in his Rihla that:

On every Jum’uah after the Salah and also on the birthday of the Beloved Prophet Alaihis Salat wa as-Salam, the door of the Holy Ka’abah is opened by the head of the Banu Shayba the doorkeepers of the Holy Ka’abah while on the Mawlid Shareef, the Shafi’i head judge of Makkah al-Mukarrama, Najm al-Din Muhammad ibn al-Imam Muhyi al-Din al-Tabari, distributed food to the descendants of the Beloved Prophet Alaihis Salat wa as-Salam and to the people of Makkah al-Mukarrama.

16. The historian Shaykh Ibn Zahira from his Jami al-Latif fi Fadli Makkata wa-Ahliha; Shaykh al-Haytami from his book al-Mawlid al-Sharif al-Muazzam; and the historian Shaykh al-Nahrawali from al-Ilmam bi-Alam Bayt Allah al-Haram says:

Each year on the twelfth of Rabi al-Awwal Shareef, after Maghrib Salah, the four Qadhis of Makkah al-Mukarrama (representing the Four Sunni Schools) and large groups of people including the jurists and notables of Makkah al-Mukarrama, Shaykhayn, Zawiya teachers and students, magistrates and scholars, leave the Mosque and set out collectively for a visit to the Noble Birthplace of the Beloved Prophet Alaihes Salato Salaam, shouting out Dhikr and Tahlil.

The houses on the route are illuminated with numerous lanterns and large candles, and a great many people are out and about. They all wear special clothes and they take their children with them.

Inside the Noble Birthplace, a special sermon for the occasion of the birthday of the Beloved Prophet SallAllaho Alaihi wa Sallam is delivered. Hereafter the Dua’ for the (Ottoman) Sultan, the Ameer of Makkah al-Mukarramah, and the Shafi’i Qadhi is performed and all pray humbly.

Shortly before the ‘Isha prayer, the whole party returns to the Great Mosque, which is almost overcrowded, and sit down in rows at Maqam Sayyiduna Ibrahim (Alayhis Salam).

A similar description is given by Shaykh al-Diyar Bakri (d/960) in his Great Sirah entitled Ta'rikh al-Khamis fi Akhbari Anfasi Nafis.

The Ottoman flag is raised during Mawlid an-Nabi Celebrations in Benghazi - Libiya in 1896.
