Celebrating the Prophet Muhammad’s (sa) Birthday

Asalaamualaykumm,

Subhaanallah i think its that time of the year again, where unfortunatley many of the Muslims around the world will induldge in the innovation of celebrating the Prophet (s)’s birthday, which has become so widespread, it seems the ‘norm’. We need to remember, that if we love our Prophet Muhammad (s), to show this love — we simply follow his sunnah; thats our ticket to paradise! & He (s) has never instructed us to celebrate his birthday,nor did his companions who loved him more than we ever could..

May Allah protect us from ignorance, increase us in knowledge, guide us and keep us all upon the sunnah, and not fall into the evils of innovation. Ameen

Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad (sa) said: “I warn you of the newly invented matters (in the religion), and every newly invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is in the Hellfire” [An-Nasa’ee]

Below is all the daleel (authentic evidence, from the Qur’aan and Hadith) explaning why we are not allowed to celebrate the Prophet Muhammad’s (sa) birthday – as many sadly claim is ok.

  1. why allmost all people india muslims clebrate birthdays, what is there daleel.

  2. Asalaamualaykum;

    Thats the thing – they have no daleel! The whole mawlid thing (as well as many other innovations) has become a ritual,people are sadly just blind following – The daleel they use are:

    -weak hadith
    -hadith taken out of context
    -fatwa’s off shaykhs (not backed up with authentic evidence) etc

  3. sorry i meant ‘guide’
