Celebrating Eid-e-Milad why we celebration 12 rabiul awwal When we have a good time Milad, we accumulate, with a view to send salutations (Esal-e-Swaab) to the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace], deliver charity to the bad (Sadaqah Khairat) and take into account wilaadah(Birth) and virtues of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]. The Ahl as-Sunnah does now not say that one should rejoice “Milad” handiest on 12
Rabee’-ul-Awwal, in reality it is able to be celebrated at every time of the 12 months. Generally Milad-un-Nabi is celebrated, at the 12th of Rabee’ul-Awwal, by Muslims all around the global. In each Muslim u . S . A ., there may be a public vacation for “Mila
Nabee”, except one country, but even in that country, the human beings rejoice “Milaad” personally. The birth of the Anbiyaa’ has been noted within the Qur’an. For example, Adam, Musaa, Eesaa, and Yahyaa (May Allah bless them and supply them peace). If it is wrong to talk about the birth of the Prophet (May Allah bless him and furnish him peace), then why has Allah TA’ALA cited it within the Qur’an?
Evidence of Milaad-un-Nabi from the Qur’anAllah Ta’ala says within the Holy Qur’an:
Say: “In the bounty of Allah, and his mercy;- Therein allow them to have a good time.” That is higher then what they Amass.
In this verse, Allah Almighty tells us that we ought to be happy when we get hold of benefits and mercy from Him. Without doubt, the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] is the greateset mercy and blessing of Allah Almighty
Allah Almighty says within the Qur’an:
“And we despatched now not to you but a mercy for all the worlds” (Al’Anbiyaa’, 107)
AllahAlmighty says within the Qur’an:
Oh Prophet! The communicator of unseen information. We have sent you as a present beholder and bearer of happy tidings and a warner.
And an inviter towards Allah by using His command and a brightening solar.
And provide glad tidings to the believers that for them is top notch bounty of Allah.
AllahAlmighty says within the Qur’an:
…remind them of the day of Allah…
Hafidhh Ibn Kathir and Qadi Shawkani write that:
“the day of Allah” refers back to the day on which AllahAlmighty has carried out a favour on mankind. For instance, the liberty of Bani Isra’il from the slavery of Fir’awn.
[Tafsir Ibn Kathir, and Fath-ul-qadeer, by Hafidhh Ibn Kather and Qaadee Shawkaanee]
Allah’s graetest favour on mankind changed into the birth of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]. This way that the Milaad of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] is a “day of Allah”, consequently we must recall it.
Hafidh Ibn Rajab writes that:
It is usually recommended to speedy on the ones days on which Allah Almighty has despatched blessings on us. The best favour which AllahAlmighty has bestowed us with, is the sending down of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]. Allah Almighty says in the Qur’an:
“I have favoured among nations and despatched to you a Prophet from among you”(ltaa’if-ul-ma’rif, web page 111, with the aid of Hafidh Ibn Rajab)
Some different evidences of MilaadOur Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] celebrated the beginning of his son Ibraaheem by means of releasing a slave. (Tareekh Ibn Kathir, “Birth of Ibraaheem”).
Imam Muslim writes that the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] became asked about the quick on Mondays, which he used to maintain, the Prophet spoke back “This is the day of my beginning”.
This proves that the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] kept rapid on Mondays to reveal gratitude for his birth.
Imam Bukhari writes that:
when Abu Lahab died, a person from his family saw him in a dream, they asked him what befell inside the grave he said “I am being punished significantly, however on Mondays, I get water from my finger with which I am freed Thuwayba,
Friday is a special day for Muslims because that is the day that Allah created Aadam[May Allah bless him and grant him peace]
(The Muslim ebook of Jum’ah, additionally Tareekh Ibn Kathir, vol.1, “Story of Aadam (May Allah bless him and grant him peace])
Hafidhh Ibn Kathir writes that Abu Lahab freed Thuwayba at the day that the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] become born.
(Sirat-un-Nabee, “Birth of Prophet May Allah bless him and provide Him peace]”, by using Hafidh Ibn Kathir)The Story of Hazrat Fatima daughter of the Holy Prophet.
This proves that a kaafir, Abu Lahab, turned into satisfied on the day of the delivery of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] and was rewarded with the aid of having his punishment reduced. If that is real, then indeed Allah will bless a Muslim who rejoices the beginning of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace]. This Hadith has been used by many ‘Ulamaa’, to justify the birthday celebration of Milad.
Allama Ibn Hajr Asqalani writes that Sohaily stated that Abbaas Radi-Allahu-unhu, who became the uncle of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace], had the above dream. Apart from this, different Muhadditheen have also attributed this dream to Abbaas Radi-Allahu-unhu. (Fath-ul-baari, “Nikaah”, through Hafidh Ibn Hajar Asqalaanee)
A person might also ask, “When did Abbaas Radi-Allahu-unhu have this dream? Was it earlier than or after he embraced Islam?” The solution to that is that he had this dream after coming into the fold of Islam (Seerah-Ibn-Hashaam) Abu Lahab died after the struggle of Badr earlier than which Abbaas Radi-Allahu-unhu embraced Islam.
Fatwa of Scholars for Milad
Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah writes:The Matchless Appearance of Our Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam
“Those those who rejoice Milaad through the affection and respect of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace], might be rewarded by way of Allah.
[Iqtidaa’ us-siraat-il-Mustaqeem, page 294]
He additionally writes that:
If a person celebrates Milaad with the love and recognize of Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace], he may have a “huge reward”. He says that during Muslim groups, Milaad-un-Nabi gatherings are only achieved with the honor and love of the Muslims for the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]
[Iqtidaa’ as-siraat-il-Mustaqeem, page 297, by Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah]A Regime for Sleep
Hafidhh Ibn Kathir wrote that:
There turned into as soon as a King, Abu Sa’eed Malik Muzaffar – a man of appropriate deeds. In his state, wherever he saw a lack of water, he would construct a well. He additionally set up many Islamic have a look at centers. Every yr, he could spend half of 1,000,000 dinars on website hosting a meeting of his people to rejoice the birthday of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace]
[Tareekh Ibn Kathir, see story of King Abu Sa’eed, Volume 13]
Ibn Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab Najdi, in his e-book, writes:
“Thuwaiba, who turned into the freed slave of Abu Lahab fed Rasolallah Sallalalhu ‘alaihi wa sallam milk. Abu Lahab freed Suwaiba at the time whilst she informed him that a son has been born at your brother’s residence. After the demise of Abu Lahab he was seen in a dream, wherein he stated ‘I am in extreme punishment however that is lessened on Mondays, he showed his forefinger, and said that he could suck from it. This is so as it was with this finger that I freed Suwaiba while she knowledgeable of the beginning of the Prophet, and she or he also fed the Prophet Sallalalhu ‘alaihi wa sallam milk”. Ibn Jawzi states: Abu Lahab is that kaafir who has been specifically stated, inside the Qur’an. If such a person may be rewarded for celebrating the Milaad of the Prophet Sallalalhu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, then consider how fantastic the reward would be for a Muslim while he celebrates it.
[Mukhtassar Sirat-ur-rasool, “Milaad-un-nabi”, by Ibn Muhammad bin Abdul wahhaab Najdi].
The above is evidence that celebrating the birthday of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] in the shape of a gathering is permissible. Otherwise Hafidhh Ibn Kathir could now not have noted it as an excellent deed and Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah might not have stated that there could be a “large praise” for doing so.
Some humans have the opinion that King Abu Sa’eed introduced the celebrating of this event. This isn’t actual because Hafidh Ibn Kathir states that inside the fifth Century hijree, a King named Malik Shah celebrated it additionally with a gathering
[Tareekh Ibn Katheer biography of Malik Shah]
Some human beings even argue that the Holy Prophet changed into now not even born at the twelfth Rabbi Awwal. This argument is baseless, as Hafidh Ibn Kathir has mentioned this in Sirat-un-nabi. He states that most of the people of the scholars agree that the Prophet changed into born at the twelfth of Rabee’ul-Aawal. The proof of the individuals who do not accept that is vulnerable.
(As-Sirat-un-nabi, vol.1, “Birth of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]”)
Muhammad Ibn Is-haaq states that the Prophet was born at the twelfth of Rabee’ul-Awwal.
(Seerah Ibn Hashaam, “Chapter Birth of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]”)
Ibn Is-haaq turned into a Taabi’ and became born in 75 Hijrah. His e book is the oldest ebook available of seerah in Islamic records. The first e book of Seerah was written by way of Musa bin Uqba. This e-book is now not avaiable for reference.
The Ahl as-Sunnah rejoice the Milaad of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] with love and respect. If a person does now not rejoice it, we do no longer call them a kaafir because the problem of Milaad does now not have an effect on the ‘Aqeedah of someone. The celebrating of this must not cause any divisions amongst Muslims.
Hafidhh Salaahuddeen Yoosuf [A great follower of Hafidhh Ibn Taymiyyah and Shaikh Najdee] writes:
On the birth date of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant him peace], to present charity to the poor or to build a Masjid. We agree in this kind of celebration of Milaad.
(Milaad-un-nabi, via Hafidhh.Yoosuf, web page ninety two)
Hafidh Ibn Kathir writes: “On the day of the beginning of Prophet[May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace], Shaytaan cried plenty.”
(Sirat-un-nabi, “Birth of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace]”, via Hafidh Ibn Kathir)
From Ibn Kathirs narration we can see that to sense sad on the Birthday of the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] is the way of shaytaan not the manner of a Muslim!
Some questions raised concerning the MilaadAlthough the Prophet become born at the twelfth of Rabee’ul-awwal he additionally died at the identical date. How then can the 12th of Rabee’ul-awwal be a happy day?
Mourning for someone’s death have to not be greater than 3 days, besides for a girl, who has lost her husband. The Prophet’s [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] death was over 1400 years in the past, so the duration of mourning has exceeded. But, after a person dies, his death is remembered through reciting the Qur’an, remembering his deserves, giving alms, and making du’a for him. Even if the length of mourning for the Prophet’s [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] loss of life exists, all the movements stated above are covered whilst human beings accumulate for Milaad-un-nabee. For this purpose, there isn’t always need to separate the birthday party of the Prophet’s [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] birth, and the mourning of his dying.
How can there be an Eid Milaad-un-nabi when there are simplest two Eids (Al-Fitr and Al-AdhHaa)?
Allah Almighty says within the Qur’an:
Prophet Isa [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] prayed to Allah Almighty “Oh Allah, our Lord, ship all the way down to us a tray of meals from the Heavens so that it is able to be an event of Eid for us for the primary and the closing of us.” (Al-Maa’idah, 114)
Imam Hakim writes that the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] stated “Friday is likewise an Eid day”. Once, inside the Prophet’s time Eid came on Friday and the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him peace] stated “Allah has given you two Eids these days”.
(Mustadrak, “Jum’ah” with the aid of Imam Haakim and summary with the aid of Imam Dhahabi).
Imam Tirmidhee writes
“Abdullah-bin-Abbaas was reciting verse 3 of surah maa’ida, from the Qur’an. A Jew, sitting near-by heard it and stated to Abdullah “If that verse that you recited, changed into found out to us, we would make that day an Eid day”. Abdullah-bin-Abbas answered “When this verse changed into discovered, there have been two Eids on that day. One of them became the Hajj day and the other Friday”.
[Tirmidhee , “Tafsir”, and also Tafsir Ibn Kathir, surah 5, verse 3]
From the references above, it’s miles proved that the term “Eid day” does now not in particular observe to the 2 Eid days (Al-fitr and al-adhHaa), but alternatively, it may be used for any Islamic holy day. This way that we are able to consult with “Milaad-un-Nabi” as “Eid-Milaad-un-nabi”THE STATE OF THE BODY OF MAN
Books on Milaad-un-Nabi (SallahoAleheWasalam)Imam Tirmidhi, in his book even gives the identify of considered one of this chapters, the call “Milaad-un-Nabee”. (Tirmidhi, shamaa’il)FATHUL BARI
Imam Waaqdi (A second century Scholar) also wrote a book entitled “Milaad-un-Nabi”. The authentic replica may be determined in Cairo.
Allama Ibn Al-Jawzi, wrote a book called “Milaad-un-Nabi” in which he gives very sturdy proofs permitting the celebration of Milaad.Ummul mo’mineen Hazarte Juwairiya bint Haaris radi- Allāhu ta’ala anha
