What is Eid Milad un Nabi( )?
• This is also known as Mawlid-un-Nabi OR Mawlid Al Sharif OR
Milad Sharif.
• It’s an occasion when Muslims celebrate the birth of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him). Although, Eid Milad un Nabi
(peace be upon him) is celebrated on 12th Rabi ul Awwal, the
birthday of Prophet Muhammad ( ) but Muslims organize
gatherings of Mawlid Sharif all around the year.
• It has been very old Muslim tradition to organize gathering of
Milad Sharif to thank Allah for His blessings and favours.

www.iscc.ca and www.jamatahlesunnat.ca
What Takes Place in a Gathering of Mawlid
(Meelad) Al Sharif?
• Recitation from the holy Qur’an
• Recitation of Naat (Madiha) of Rasool-ullah ( )
• Speeches by Ulema (scholars) on the life(Seerah) and the honours
of Rasool-ullah ( ).
• Dhikr of Allah.
• Salat and Salaam (Salutation) on Rasool-ullah ( )
• Serving the guests with food.
• Ending of the gathering on du’a.
These are all good things that a Muslim should do in a gathering.
Then, why some people who call themselves Muslims oppose Milad
Sharif? There could be several reasons. It could be because of
ignorance OR misguidance OR hidden jealousy for Allah’s Messenger
3
(Peace be upon him). Please read the next slides. www.iscc.ca and www.jamatahlesunnat.ca
Why it is called Eid?
Those who oppose Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace be upon him) object that
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) prescribed for Muslims two
Eids as mentioned in this Hadith,
Anas bin Maalik (May Allah be pleased with him) said: “The
Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) came to Madinah and the
people had two days when they would play and have fun. He said,
‘What are these two days?’ They said, ‘We used to play and have fun
on these days during the Jaahiliyyah (Days of Ignorance). The
Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said, ‘Allah has given you
something better than them, the day of (Eid) Adhaa and the day of
(Eid) Fitr.’”[Sunan Abu Dawood ]
Where this 3rd Eid comes from?

Where this 3rd Eid comes from?
This question is purely based upon the ignorance of Arabic language.
You can pickup any Arabic - English dictionary and you will find the
translation of birthday is “Eid Milad”. Since it is the birthday of Nabi
(peace be upon him); therefore, it is called Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace
be upon him)
For example, the birthday of Abdul Rahman in Arabic will be called
“Eid Milad Abdul Rahman”. Therefore, Nabi’s birthday in Arabic
will be called “Eid Milad un Nabi” (peace be upon him). It is not the
issue of two Eids or three Eids. It is the linguistic issue that many
people don’t know.
Therefore, the question that needs to be answered is whether we
should celebrate the birthday of our Prophet OR not? Please read the
next slides for detailed analysiswww.iscc.ca

Qur’an calls Prophets’ birthdays
blessed days
ُ ‫وت َويَ ْو َم يُ ْب َع‬
ُ ‫َو َس ََل ٌم َعلَ ْي ِه يَ ْو َم ُولِ َد َويَ ْو َم يَ ُم‬
‫ث َحيًّا‬
So Peace on him (Yahya Alaihissalam) the day he was born, the
day that he dies, and the day that he will be raised up to life
(again)! (Surah Maryam, 15)
ُ ‫وت َويَ ْو َم أُ ْب َع‬
ُّ ِ‫ي يَ ْو َم ُول‬
ُ ‫دت َويَ ْو َم أَ ُم‬
‫ث َحيًّا‬
َّ َ‫َوالس َََّل ُم َعل‬
"So peace is on me (Eesa Alaihissalam) the day I was born, the
day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"!
(Surah Maryam, 33)
This proves that the birthdays of Prophets are declared blessed
days by Allah and Prophets themselves. That is why prophets’
birthdays are very important and significant days.

Celebration of Prophet Muhammad’s
Birthday in Hadith
Abu Qatada al-Ansari narrates in Sahih Muslim, Kitab as-siyam, that
the Prophet (peace be upon him) was asked about the fast of Monday,
and he answered: "That is the day that I was born and that is the day I
received the prophethood.“
Every Monday, Abu Lahab in his grave is released from punishment
because he freed his handmaid Thuwayba when she brought him the
news of the Prophet's birth. (Bukhari, book of Nikah and Ibn Kathir’s
Sirat al-Nabi Vol.1, p. 124, Mawlid al-Nabi p. 21, and al-Bidaya p.
272-273)
This proves that even a condemned by Allah Kafir (Surah Lahab) gets
a respite every Monday because he rejoiced the birth of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him), what then do you think of a servant
who, all his life, was happy with
Muhammad
(peace be upon him),7

and
www.jamatahlesunnat.ca
and died as a Muslim?"

The Ijma (consensus) of Islamic Scholars
on the Permissibility of Eid Milad un Nabi
(Peace be upon him)
The
Imam of Saudis and Salafis, Imam Ibn Taymiyyah writes,
“Those who celebrate Eid Milad un Nabi through the love and
respect of the Prophet [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace],
will be rewarded by Allah. He also writes, If someone celebrates
Milad with the love and respect of Prophet [peace be upon him], he
will have a “big reward”. He says that in Muslim communities,
Milad-un-Nabi gatherings are only done with the respect and love of
the Muslims for the Prophet [May Allah bless him and grant Him
peace] (Majma` Fatawa Ibn Taymiyyah, Vol. 23, p. 163 & Iqtidaa’
us-siraat-il-Mustaqeem, page 294, 295, 297]

The Ijma (consensus) of Islamic Scholars
on the Permissibility of Eid Milad un Nabi
(Peace be upon him)
Allama Ibn Kathir in his book, Mawlid-ur-Rasool-ullah (Peace be
upon him) writes, "The Night of the Prophet's birth is a magnificent,
noble, blessed and holy night, a night of bliss for the believers, pure,
radiant with lights, and of immeasurable price.“ (page 19)
Imam Subki said, "When we were celebrating the Prophet's
birthday, a great uns (familiarity) comes to our heart, and we feel
something special.“
Imam Shawkani in his book al-Badr at-tali`, said, "It is
permissible to celebrate the Prophet's birthday." He mentioned that
Mullah `Ali Qari held the same opinion in a book entitled alMawrid ar-Rawi fi al-Mawlid al-Nabawi, written specifically to

say that the reason for gathering to celebrate mawlid is mandub
(recommended) and qurba and the intention to celebrate mawlid is

The Ijma (consensus) of Islamic
Scholars on the Permissibility of
Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace be upon
him)
We find nowadays publications filled with lies and deception
which mislead many Muslims into thinking negatively about the
honorable Mawlid of the Prophet. These publications claim that to
celebrate the Mawlid is an act of innovation that goes against
Islam. This is far from the truth, and it is therefore necessary for
those who can speak clearly to help clarify and reverse the doubts
surrounding this most blessed day. It is with this humble intention
that I present the following proofs in support of celebrating our
beloved Prophet's birthday. For complete Fatwa, please visit,

The Ijma (consensus) of Islamic Scholars
on the Permissibility of Eid Milad un Nabi
(Peace be upon him)
The leader of all current Salafis, Sheikh Dr. Yousuf Al Qardawi says,
some Muslims maintain that celebrating any Islamic occasion is
forbidden; they consider celebrating occasions such as ….., the
Prophet’s birthday and other Islamic occasions recorded in the
Prophet’s biography, to be bid`ah (innovation), which is a sign of
going astray and, thus, a way to hellfire. But it is not absolutely so.
However, there is nothing wrong in making use of such an occasion
as the Prophet’s birthday to remember and remind people of the
great personality of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him),
his honorable biography, and his true message that has been revealed
to him by Allah Almighty as a mercy for the worlds. How can this be
considered a bid`ah?

The Ijma (consensus) of Islamic Scholars
on the Permissibility of Eid Milad un Nabi
(Peace be upon him)
The founder of Jama’t Islami Pakistan and a very prominent
leader of Salafi beliefs Maulana Abul A’la Maudoodi says,
“Though, Islamic law has not declared the birthday of Prophet
Muhammad (P.B.U.H) as EID, nor has it established any
customary practice for its celebration, but if people consider it as
EID, due to this being the day of arrival of the greatest Prophet
(P.B.U.H) of Allah and the peerless saviour of the world, and
observe it as a day on which the biggest blessing of Allah for
mankind came into existence, then there is no harm either.”

A brief history of formal celebration of Eid Milad
un Nabi (Peace be upon him)
The oldest source that mentions a public commemoration of the
Mawlid is in Ibn Jubayr's (540-614) Rihal ("Travels"), p. 114-115:
"This blessed place [the house of the Prophet] is opened, and all
men enter it to derive blessing from it (mutabarrikin bihi), on every
Monday of the month of Rabi` al-Awwal; for on that day and in that
month was born the Prophet.“
The 7th-century historians Abul `Abbas al-`Azafi and his son Abul
Qasim al-`Azafi wrote in their unpublished Kitab ad-durr almunazzam: "Pious pilgrims and prominent travelers testified that, on
the day of the Mawlid in Makkah, no activities are undertaken, and
nothing is sold or bought, except by the people who are busy visiting
his noble birthplace, and rush to it. On this day the door of Ka`ba is

Ibn Battuta's Account of the Mawlid: The famous 8th-century
historian Ibn Battuta relates in his Rihla, Vol. 1, p. 309 and 347, that
on every Friday, after the salah, and on the birthday of the Prophet,
the door of Ka`ba is opened by the head of the Banu Shayba, the
doorkeepers of the Ka`ba, and that on the Mawlid, the Shafi`i qadi
(head judge) of Makkah, Najmuddin Muhammad Ibn al-Imam
Muhyiddin al-Tabari, distributes food to the shurafa' (descendants of
the Prophet and to all the other people of Makkah.

The following description consolidates eyewitness accounts by
three 10th-century authorities: the historian Ibn huhayra from his alJami` al-latif fi fasl Makkah wa ahliha, p. 326; the hafiz Ibn Hajar
al-Haytami from his Kitab al-Mawlid ash-Sharif al-Mu`azzam, and
the historian al-Nahrawali from al-I`lam bi-a`lam Bayt Allah alharam, p. 205.

Each year on the 12th of Rabi` al-Awwal, after the salat al-Maghrib,
the four qadis of Makkah (representing the Four Schools) and large
groups of people including the fuqaha' (scholars) and fudala'
(notables) of Makkah, shaykhs, zawiya teachers and their students,
ru'asa' (magistrates), and muta`ammamin (scholars) leave the
mosque and set out collectively for a visit to the birthplace of the
Prophet, shouting out dhikr and tahlil (LA ILAHA ILLALLAH).
The houses on the route are illuminated with numerous lanterns and
large candles, and a great many people are out. They all wear
special clothes and they takewww.iscc.ca
their children
with them.

A brief history of formal celebration of Eid Milad

After reaching the birthplace, inside a special sermon for the occasion
of the birthday of the Prophet is delivered, mentioning the miracles
(karamat) that took place on that occasion. Hereafter the du`a' for the
Sultan (i.e. the Caliph), the Emir of Makkah, and the Shafi`i qadi is
performed and all pray humbly. Shortly before the salat al-`Isha', the
whole party returns from the birthplace of the Prophet to the Great
Mosque, which is almost overcrowded, and all sit down in rows at the
foot of the Maqam Ibrahim. In the mosque, a preacher first mentions
the tahmid (AL HAMDULILLAH) and the tahlil, and once again the
du`a' for the Sultan, the Emir, and the Shafi`i qadi is performed. After
this the call for the Salat al-`Isha' is made. After the salat, the crowd
breaks up. A similar description is given by al-Diyarbakri (d. 960) in
www.iscc.ca and

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) died
on the same day. Why his death is not
mourned on 12th Rabi Al Awwal?
According to some traditions, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon
him) passed away on 12th Rabi Al Awwal. It was indeed a very
painful and sad occasion for the Sahabah. They were going to miss his
physical company. As Qur’an describes that Prophet Muhammad
ٌ ‫ك َمي‬
(peace upon him) had to taste the taste of death. ‫ون‬
َ ُ‫ِّت َوإِنَّهُم َّميِّت‬
َ َّ‫إِن‬
Truly thou wilt die (one day), and truly they (too) will die (one day).
[az-Zumar 39:30]. However, not a single companion (Sahabi) ever
believed that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) died as an
ordinary person dies. They all believed and every Muslim must
believe that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) listens our
Darood and Salam and responds our Darood and Salam. Dead people

In the holy Qur’an Allah has forbidden to call Martyrs dead but Allah
says they are alive and fed by Allah. A Muslim believes that Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) is superior than his followers and
all the martyrs. He is alive in his grave. Here are some authentic
Ahadith for your information.
Anas b. Malik reported, Allah's Messenger (‫ )صلى هللا عليه وسلم‬said:
The Prophets are alive in their graves and pray. (Bayhaqi, Hayatul
Anmbiya, page 3)

Narated By AbudDarda: The Apostle of Allah (‫ )صلى هللا عليه وسلم‬said:
Among the most excellent of your days is Friday; so invoke many
blessings (Darood & Salam) on me that day, for your blessing will be
submitted to me. They (the Companions) asked: Apostle of Allah,
how can our blessing be submitted to you, when your body is
decayed? He said: Allah has prohibited the earth from consuming the
bodies of the Prophets. [Sunan Ibn Maja Volume 001: Hadith Number

Imam Jalal ud-din Suyuti (rah) said: The word "radda" means `ala

Allah does not return the Ruh and take it back, then return it
again and then take it back again, but He returned it to the
Prophet permanently, and the Prophet is alive permanently. [AlHawi lil Fatawi, Vol.2, Page No.271-272]Imam al-Nawawi (rah)

Therefore for a believer (Mo’min) Prophet Muhammad (peace be

Darood and Salam and responds to them. He lives in our Faith
(Emaan). His Mercy is with us. Why should we mourn him? We

Did the Companions (Sahabah) Celebrate
Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace be upon him)?
The honourable Companions (Sahaba) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be
upon him) celebrated the birth and the life of Prophet Muhammad (peace
be upon him) every moment of their lives. Their sitting in the company
of Prophet, seeing him, listening to him, praying behind him, talking to
him, traveling with him, imitating him was their way of celebrating the
Milad Sharif. Today’s Muslims (including those who appose Eid Milad
un Nabi ) do not live like Sahabah. Therefore, we all need to be
reminded again and again about the honours, the life and the message of
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be
upon him) is an occasion that reminds us the honours and life of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Did the Companions (Sahabah) OR Early Imams
Celebrate Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace be upon him)?
Yes, they celebrated the Milad Sharif. The only difference between
their celebration and our celebration is that they celebrated everyday
and every moment but we celebrate on occasions and events. If we
live like Sahaba in all aspects of our lives then we would be
celebrating Milad Sharif everyday. Our life style has become very
different than Sahabah’s life style. We organize programs on certain
occasions and events. In today’s world occasions and events are held
for education and awareness. Even those who call Eid Milad un
Nabi a Bid’a, they also organize programs and events which were
never existed during the time of Nabi Alaihissalam and neither
during the time of Companions and early Imams (May Allah be
pleased with them). In some cases those events and programs never
existed in the history of Muslims until recently. Lets review some
of the Bid’a of those who call Eid
Milad un Nabi a Bid’a.

Following practices were never carried out
by Prophet nor his Companions. Why these
practices are not called Bid’a?
Bid’a Number 1
The only worldwide gathering of Muslims commanded by Allah and
practiced by Prophet Muhammad and his companions (Peace be upon
them) is Hajj. There is NO other international (worldwide) gathering of
Muslims in Islam. In Pakistan and Bangladesh the annual “Tablighi
Ijtima” attracts more Muslims than Hajj. When did the Prophet (Peace be
upon him) OR his companions OR Muslim scholars organize the
worldwide gatherings of Muslims in the name of Tableegh? Worldwide
Tableeghi Ijtima was started few decades ago by the founder of the
Tablighi Jama’t in India, Maulana Ilyas Gujrati. But Eid Milad un Nabi
has 13 hundred years of history. Just like Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be
upon him), the Tableeghi Ijtima’ has a fixed annual date. People
participate, pray and learn Islam in both gatherings. Why Tableeghi Ijtima

is
Bid’a?

Bid’a Number 2
In Pakistan (1970s) former Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto
invited the Imam of Ka'ba to visit Pakistan. When Imam Ka'ba, a
fierce opponent of Eid-Milad-un-Nabi, came Pakistan Muslims
abandoned mosques and prayed Friday prayers in large stadiums
behind him. Was there any precedence in Islam for such
gatherings? Prophet (peace upon him) and his companions (Peace
be upon them) never did such a thing. Never happened before in the
history of Muslims that Muslims emptied mosques and prayed
behind an Imam because he came from Saudi Arabia? That was
definitely a new thing. It was a big Bid'a? Why no Fatwa was
issued against the Imam of Ka’ba
and all those who prayed behind

him?

The Bid’a (distortion) Committed by the
opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be

Bid’a Number 3
The scholars, Ulema and students of Dar-ul-Aloom Deoband
(one of the oldest Islamic universities in India) celebrated the
100th anniversaries of the Dar Al Aloom Deoband. The 100th
birthday of Dar-ul Aloom Deoband was celebrated under the
leadership of a Hindu Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi.
Did Prophet or his companions ever celebrate the anniversary of
Masjid Al Quba, Masjid Al Nabawi, etc.? Talk about inviting a
"Mushrikah" (pagan) to preside over the gathering of Ulema-eIslam. Wasn't that a Bid'a? It is obvious that the haters of Eid
Milad un Nabi have more love and respect for their Dar Al
Aloom and pagans than thewww.iscc.ca

Bid’a Number 4
Few years ago in UK, the Ahl-e-Hadith party held TOWHEEDO-SUNNAT conference and invited Imam Ka'ba and many other
scholars. They do this every year. Did Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him) or his noble companions (Peace be upon
them) ever organized a program called TOWHEED-O-SUNNAT
Conference and traveled to speak at a conference? Why
Towheed-o-Sunnat conference can not be declared Bid’a? The
Salafis (self appointed Ahle Hadith) commit more Bid’a and
deny more Hadith than any other sect within Islam.

Bid’a Number 5
On international political, economical, social issues Muslims
organize rallies and processions. On religious issues and conflicts
Muslims take out rallies and strikes. These rallies, processions and
strikes are also organized by those who call Eid Milad un Nabi a
Bid’a. Did Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), his
companions OR the noble scholars of Islam ever took out rallies and
banners and shouting slogans, burning flags, etc.. Aren’t these rallies
Bid'a? The haters of Eid Milad un Nabi invite Muslims to attend
their rallies. They say,” taking part in these rallies is Jihad and
participants will be rewarded by Allah”. But if a rally to create
awareness about our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) is

organized, it becomes Bid’a.

Bid’a Number 6
During 1970 elections in Pakistan Jamat Islami took out major
processions in the name of Youm-e-Shawkat-e-Islam. This name
itself undermines the religion of Islam. Everyday is Youm-eShawkat-e-Islam not when Jamat Islami contests elections. When
did the Prophet and his companions organize Youm-e-Shawkat-eIslam? Wasn't that Bid'a? Did anybody issue Fatwa against those
large processions? They were all done in the name of Islam.
People were expected to get rewards from Allah for their
contribution and participation. But participation in the procession
of Eid Milad un Nabi (Peace be upon him) is called Bid’a by the
same people? No wonder thewww.iscc.ca

Saudi Arabia does celebrate Youm-ul-Watani (National Day of
Saudi Arabia). Television stations telecast special programs,
newspapers print special editions and private companies give
their employees a day off. I have never seen any Saudi scholar’s
fatwa against the celebration of Saudi National Day. But they
are very quick in giving Fatwa against Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi.
Did Prophet (Peace be upon him) OR his companions (May
Allah be pleased with them) ever celebrated the establishment
of the Islamic state of Madinah? Why the celebration of Saudi
National Day this is not a Bid’a?

In North America, ISNA, ICNA, CAIR and many other Muslim
organizations organize their annual conventions. In most cases
people have to purchase tickets to listen to the speeches of various
scholars. Isn't this entire setup a Bid'a? When did Prophet (Peace
be upon him) OR his companions (Peace be upon them) OR
scholars of Islam organize such conventions? Why people have to
pay in order to listen to the speeches of the scholars of Islam?
Where is the basis for this? Did Prophet (Peace be upon him)
charge fee for his speeches? Any companion of the Prophet ever
asked people to pay for a good cause first before he would deliver
his speech? Off course not. Those noble people never did such
things but it’s OK for the opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi.
Indeed, it’s a major Bid’a but they won’t call it Bid’a; otherwise,

The very concept of forming organizations such as Jama't Ahl-eHadith, Party of Salafis, Jama't Islami, WAMY, Rabita Aalm-eIslami, ISNA, ICNA, CAIR is a Bid'a. Neither Prophet nor his
companions (Peace be upon them) ever formed organizations and
named them. The only name for worldwide Muslim body is
"Muslims". Only Allah divides people into tribes and nations for
identification. These opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi (Sallallaho

A Pakistani woman (Farhat Hashmi) who has now moved to Canada but
still operates in Pakistan considers herself a scholar of Islam. She
gives fatwa not only against Eid-Milad-un-Nabi but against many
other Islamic traditions such as Qur’an Khawani, etc. I have a simple
questions for Ms. Farhat Hashmi and her followers. Which female
companions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) formed
organizations like yours? Did any female companion of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) ever travelled for Tabligh. Where in
the Qur’an OR Hadith OR in the tradition of Sahabah large female
gatherings of Tabligh were held?
Why a gathering of Milad Sharif is a bid’a and Ms. Hashmi’s
innovations are not Bid’a? Did Hazrat Aisha or any other female
companions of Prophet Muhammad
(Peace be upon him) ever 34

When Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be
upon him) , it was not divided in thirty volumes. Neither Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him) nor his noble companions
divided Qur’an into thirty volumes (siparah). Qur’an was
divided into thirty volumes by the rulers and the scholars
hundreds of years later for the convenience of HUFFAAZ
(memorizers of the holy Qur’an). It helped HUFFAAZ in
managing the recitation of the holy Qur’an in Taraweeh prayers
in Ramadan. This new setup of Qur’an is not considered Bid’a
but remembering the prophet in a gathering called Eid Milad un
Nabi is considered Bid’a. Why?

There were no Rukoo mentioned in the Qur’an during the time of
Prophet and his Companions. These Rukoo were added in Qur’an
by the rulers and the scholars hundreds of years later to help
Imams and HUFFAAZ in memorizing the verses of the Qur’an
and provide better organization and management for reading
Qur’an in regular daily prayers and Taraweeh prayers of Ramadan.

Bid’a Number 13
During the time of Prophet (peace be upon him) there were no
A’RAAB (Fatha/Kasrah/Dhamma / Zabar Zer Pesh) in the holy
Qur’an. These were added in Qur’an by the command of a very
ruthless and cruel Muslim ruler, Hajjaj Bin Yousuf. The A’RAAB
were inserted in the Qur’an in order to help non-Arabs to read
Qur’an correctly. Today, Arabs and non-Arabs both depend on
these A’RAAB in order to read Qur’an correctly. These A’RAAB
were an innovation. But if this innovation is removed from the
Qur’an, the opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be upon him)
would not be able to read Qur’an correctly. They need A’raab in
Qur’an which is an innovation in Qur’an but they do not want to
organize the gatherings of Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be upon him).
Does it make any sense?

Today, in North America Muslim associations organize fundraising
dinners for mosques, Islamic schools or for humanitarian
purposes. They sell tickets and invite speakers. When Prophet or
his companions (Peace be upon them) raised funds through
fundraising dinners? When Prophet or his companions (Peace be
upon them) sold $5, $25, $100, etc. food plates for a good cause.
Isn't this all Bid'a? They organize these fundraising dinners which
benefits them but the celebration of Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be
upon him) hurts them. An Urdu poet wrote;

If celebrating the birthday of Prophet (peace upon him) is an
innovation (Bid’a) because neither Prophet (peace upon him), nor
his companions ever celebrated Prophet’s birthday, then why all
other Bid’a (innovations) created by the opponents of Eid Milad un
Nabi are not condemned? Why Salafis, Wahabees, Deobandis,
Pervaizees, etc.. are practicing those Bid’a? Their Bid’a has no
justification. Eid Milad un Nabi has basis in Qur’an, Hadith and in

Those who have visited the Rowdha-tun-Nabi (Peace be upon him)
in Masjid Al Nabawi, Madinah Al Munawwarah, they know that
the Saudi Imams (Mutawwas) do not allow anyone to raise hands
in du’a while facing the Rowdha Sharif, Qabr Sharif of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Saudi Imams (Mutawwa)
get very upset and force people to turn their backs towards
Rowdha Sharif and face Qiblah during the Du’a.
However, there is no verse in the Qur’an, neither in any Hadith, nor
any Sahabi ever believed that for making Du’a one must face
Qiblah. This is the Bid’a started recently by the Wahabi / Salafi
Imams in the holy mosque. In the history of Islam no one was
ever forced to turn towards Qiblah for du’a while standing in
front of the Rowdah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Rallies & Protests: Whenever there is an issue regarding Islam OR
Muslim communities, Muslims take out rallies and protests. For
example on the issue of Al Quds, Palestine, discrimination against
Muslims in countries, etc.. Muslims organize rallies and protests.
Did Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) OR his Companions
ever organized such rallies and protests? Did the make banners?
For example, when a KAFIR burns Qur’an OR publishes the
cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) every Muslim
protested and participated in rallies which we believe was a good
thing but we also know that neither Prophet (Peace be upon him)
nor his companions (May Allah be pleased with them) EVER took
out such rallies and protests? Why people do not ask justification of
such rallies in the Shari’a but they ask justification for Eid Milad un
Nabi? If both are innovations www.iscc.ca
why oneandis ok and the other is not ok?

Youm-e-Siddiq Akber and Youm-e-Farooq-e-Azam (May Allah be

are Salafis, Wahabis and Deobandis every year organize large
gatherings and processions on the death / martyrdom anniversaries of
Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Umar Farooq (May Allah be pleased
with them) in Pakistan and wherever they live. Is there any evidence
of such gatherings and processions in the Qur’an, Hadith OR in the
life of Sahaba?
Such gatherings and processions were NEVER organized by Muslims
but people do now. Why people do not ask justification of such
gatherings and processions in the Shari’a but they ask justification for
Eid Milad un Nabi? If both are innovations why one is ok and the
other is not ok?

In Pakistan almost all Islamic parties invite people to participate in
rallies in order to put pressure on the government to implement
Islamic laws in Pakistan. People who participate in such rallies expect
and Ulema give them assurances that Allah will reward them for their
participation in such rallies. People participate in these rallies as it is
a requirement of faith.
Did Prophet Muhammad (peace upon him) OR his Companions ever
took out rallies for the implementation of Islamic Shari’a OR they
ever asked coming Muslims to take out rallies for Islam?
There was no such concept during their time. But people invented
this way because this is the way things workout today.
If this innovation for Islam is permissible why Eid Milad un Nabi

Bid’a Number 19 (the most desirable Bid’a)
In Islam, for a Muslim, moving to a non-Muslim country from a
Muslim country is allowed in three situations only. 1) When a
Muslim is persecuted in his/her own Muslim country and facing
dangers to his/her life. 2) When a Muslim wants to preach Islam in
a non-Muslim country. In other words, you have to be a Muslim
Missionary in order to settle in a non-Muslim country. 3) When a
Muslim wants to get education which is not available in a Muslim
country. Islam does not allow Muslims to leave Muslim countries
and settle in non-Muslim countries except under the above
mentioned three conditions. Neither Prophet (peace be upon him),
nor any companion of Prophet (peace be upon him) migrated to
non-Muslim countries for “better economic opportunities”. They
migrated to non-Muslim countries

However, one of the most widespread and desirable Bid’a
committed by the opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be upon
him) is to move western countries in order to find better life in the
non-Muslim countries. In fact, the immigration to non-Muslim
countries by the Muslims is so desirable and desperate Bid’a that
Muslims pray to Allah to help them in committing this Bid’a. But
from the same mouth some of them call Eid Milad un Nabi a
Bid’a. What could be worse than this hypocrisy?
Allah knows all hypocrites very well.

The Biggest Deception
• One of the biggest misconceptions of our time is that the Muslims
look at the Imams and the clergy of Makkah and Madinah as the
true and correct scholars of Islam. They believe whatever the
Imams of Masjid Al Haraam and Masjid Al Nabawi Sharif say,
“can not be wrong”. They are the Imams of the Holiest Mosques
in the entire world. Since these Imams do call Eid Milad un Nabi
(Peace be upon him) a Bid’a; therefore, it must be a Bid’a. The
Mufti of Saudi Arabia must be the most knowledgeable scholar.
His Fatwa should be the most authentic. If this is the standard
then let me draw your attention towards history.
• During Fatimid period of history of Islam for almost two
centuries, the grand Mufti and the main Imams of Masjid Al
Haraam and Masjid Al Nabawi were Shi’a. If you would have
been born during that time and if you were a Sunni Muslim
would you have accepted their Fatwa? They were the Imams of
Ka’ba and Masjid Al Nabawi Sharif.

The Biggest Deception
•Ottomans (Sultanat-e-Usmania) ruled Makkah and Madinah and
the most of the Muslim world for seven centuries. For seven
centuries the Imams of Masjid Al Haraam and Masjid Al Nabawi
Sharif used to organize, celebrate and lead the celebrations of Eid
Milad un Nabi (peace be upon him). Eid Milad un Nabi has always
been celebrated throughout the Arabian peninsula before becoming
Saudi Arabia including Masjid Al Haraam and Masjid Al Nabawi
Sharif. Please refer to earlier slides.
•In fact, the largest gathering of Eid Milad un Nabi (Sallallaho
Alaihe Wasallam) used to be held in Masjid Al Haraam in Makkah.
This practice was stopped after the WAHABI revolution in Saudi
Arabia. If you would have been born during the Ottoman Empire,
you would have seen the biggest celebration of Milad Sharif in
Haram Al Makki and Madani.

The Biggest Deception
• One of the most deceiving arguments presented by the
opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam)
is that the National Days, formation of organizations and
contesting elections are the matters of this world (Dunya). They
are not part of the Sharia of Islam but those who celebrate the
birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) they do it
as a part of Islam and the Islamic Sharia. Therefore, Eid Milad
un Nabi is Bid’a because Prophet did not make it a part of
Islam. What a strange, deceiving and un-Islamic argument is
this?
– Holy Qur’an says; O believers enter into Islam completely and do not
follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. (Surah
Al-Baqara, Ayah 208).

The Biggest Deception
Continue
• It means for a believer there is not a single moment in life
that can be outside of Islam OR Islamic Shari’a. We
Muslim believe that all actions of a believer such as work,
family time, sitting with friends, husband-wife relationships,
sleeping, even exercising and playing are all part of Ibadah
(worshipping of Allah) as long as the believer does it for the
sake of Allah.
– Qur’an says, “Say: Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life
and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds” (The Cattle
6.162).
• It means for a Muslim every worldly or non-worldly deed
must be for Allah. Does this mean that when the haters of
Eid Milad un Nabi carryout their “worldly deeds” they do it
for their own sake, not for Allah. Moreover, they consider
all their actions (listed in earlier slides) to be rewarded by
Allah. If their Bid’a are rewarded by Allah why Eid Milad

49
un Nabi will not be rewarded
byandAllah?

www.iscc.ca and www.jamatahlesunnat.ca
The Biggest Deception
Continue
• The ONLY reason we can find for the apposition of
Eid Milad un Nabi (peace be upon him) is the hidden
jealousy and animosity for Prophet Muhammad (peace
be upon him) and for his progeny. They do call
themselves Muslims but, in fact, they are Khawrjees
disguised as Muslims. Salafism, Wahabism,
Qadyanism, Deobandism, Pervaizism, etc. are all
modern forms of Khawarijism. If you can not separate
Khawrji beliefs from Islamic beliefs, you need to sit
down with someone who can explain this. We will be
more than happy to help you.

Conclusion
• We MUST not deviate from our noble traditions if the
governments change. Our traditions are based upon the holy
Qur’an, the noble Sunnah of our Prophet (Peace be upon him)
and the “Ijma” (consensus) of scholars of Islam. If the
government in Saudi Arabia changes today then what happens to
the opponents of Eid Milad un Nabi? Will they start celebrating?
• Eid Milad un Nabi unites Muslims and the denial of Eid Milad un
Nabi divides Muslims. The proof is in the 1300 years of Muslim
history. When Muslims were together in celebrating the noble
birthday of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him), they were
all united but when they started debating the permissibility of Eid
Milad un Nabi, they got divided. It is not the celebration of Eid
Milad un Nabi that divides Muslims. It is the denial of the Eid
Milad un Nabi that divides Muslims. May Allah save us from
misguidance. Ameen.
