Almost all of us are aware of the term Mawlid. Mawlid is the observance of the birthday Of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) which is commemorated in Rabi’ al-awwal. What has our scholars said about this? Is this a permissible tradition? Is there a difference of opinion?
Shaykh Hasib Noor answers in details.
Are there any rituals in relation to the birth of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
One of the most things that is obligatory in our faith is to love the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam In fact, the person cannot be Muslim, unless they love the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, everything about him and his guidance and his practice, and what he taught us, we have to love it as believers, especially what is related to the life of a Navy SEAL aloha to Salem, and particularly his birth. It's something that brings joy and love in the heart of every believer who loves the Prophet sallallahu sallam, even than their own family, as regard to the rituals of having any kind of celebratory form of gatherings in regards to the life of the Prophet slicin and his birth. This
is something which the scholars actually disagreed upon. Many great scholars in Islam said that it was okay. And many great scholars in Islam said that it was not okay. What is not okay, though, is that we make the love of the prophets alongside them, something that brings hatred between us. And this is something that unfortunately, has spread in our communities, where we actually start to fight over how we should love and then he said, alojado center. And this is something that goes completely against the entire tradition of Islam, that these scholars, even though they disagreed over holding rituals, celebratory gatherings, they never made it a point to hate one another over
this particular aspect of Islam. In fact, my own teachers in Medina, you would have some that would have gatherings wish they would remember the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and these included singing the praises of the puffles I sell them and to recite the Quran and to hold gatherings of remembering the prophets of Allah Hardison, his life and biography and to hold not only one particular day, but for example, any time which remarked, the day of the prophets of Allah audience Adams birth in general in the month of reveal our another scholar who said that we remember the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam, in general, without holding a particular date of remembrance. And this disagreement
amongst these great scholars of Islam should not make us hate one another. In fact, it should make us celebrate that diversity by caring and sharing in that love of the Prophet alayhi salatu was set up, in fact, one of the greatest scholars modern day scholars, he concluded his answer to this question by saying, wouldn't you if you had a loved one, remember and reflect over them? anytime that you remember a memorable event or moment in their life, or particular place that you are with them, or a time that you're with them? Of course, you would. Similarly with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you would remember him in all moments, and every time in his life, when the Battle
of bed that took place, for example, in the month of Ramadan, the conquest of Mecca that took place in Ramadan, the passing of his wife Khadija or the Alana, that took place in Milan, the death of Fatima Lila to place it on Milan, what about his birth, what about his passing, which also took place in a world commemorating the love of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam by studying him and most importantly, implementing what he told us to and to follow that love with practicing what he brought us and that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said, implementing the eye of the whole on falling quantum to a boon or laugh at me or only you become a lawyer for looking
through them. A lot of parents that have commanded him by saying say, If you love me, meaning Allah subhanaw taala and that is what Allah Milan, say to them, oh, Muhammad, I said, If you love me, then obey me. Follow me, Allah Subhana Allah will forgive you and He will love you. And how did he do that? The prophets I said, Emma said that the best way that one can come closer to their Lord is when Allah subhanaw taala says, You come closer to me by doing what I have obligated on you. And then you do what's optional, until you come closer to me and come closer to me until I love you. Then I announced my love to the heavens and the earth until all of creation loves you because of the
creator's love to you. And part of that love is love and levy sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and not hatred towards the creation of Allah subhana wa Tada. This question, no, undoubtedly, is a disagreement in the in the tradition, but as a disagreement which we welcome the diversity and love amongst one another for the mutual love of our beloved and he
