MAWLID: CELEBRATION OF NOVELTY.
“…The most truthful speech is the Book of Allah. The best way is the way of Muhammad (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam).The worst of affairs are the novelties; every novelty (in the deen) is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance & every misguidance is in the Fire.” An-Nasaa’e. “Whoever innovates something in this matter of ours (Islam) that is not part of it, will have it rejected.”(Bukhari).
Maulud Nabbiyy (celebration of the birthday of the prophet) began 400 years after his demise by the kufaars; Fatimid Shia rulers in Egypt. It is now celebrated by many ignorant & unsuspecting Muslims throughout the world. It was never done by HIM, his COMPANIONS & the BEST GENERATIONS that followed. The so called hadith “whoever celebrates my birthday will be forgiven” is a pure FABRICATION.
Abu Qataadah al-Ansaari (radiallahuanihu): Messenger (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) was asked about fasting on Mondays & he said: “On (that day) I was born & on it Revelation came down to me.” Muslim. The prophet fasted on the day of the week he was born not fast or celebrate annually. Copy the Prophet by fasting on every day of the day of the week you were born & not celebrate paganism annually. Can I fasting on my birthday & on mawlid nabiyy? Www.
This hadith has been deliberately misinterpreted by deviants, to mean a special day called Mawlud nabbiyy in Rabiul awwal every year (to hold a procession, a feast, a festival or a special prayer etc.).No one is sure of his date of birth, but we know his date of death for sure as (12th Rabiul awwal). Are you surprised? So, celebrating mawlid is like celebrating his death. It has suddenly become an emotional act of worship & celebration by ignorant Muslims around the world. In fact, it is a public holiday in many Muslim countries directly copying the Christians holiday of Christmas (so called birthday of Jesus (as); their god). The Prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) ; “You would follow the ways of those who came before you step by step, to such an extent that if they were to enter a lizard’s hole, you would enter it too.” They said, “O Messenger of Allah, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?” He said, “Who else?” (Bukhari).
The sunnah of the prophet could be fihinliyyah (doing what he did) & tarkiyyah (not doing what he did not do).For instance, he observed nawafil like (tahajud & taraweeh) sometimes individually & sometimes in Jamah. He said salah in Jamah is more rewarding than individual salah. Can we conclude from all these put together that we can observe Tahiyaat-ul-masjid (2 rakah of greeting the masjid) & rawatib (nawafil before or after obligatory salah ) in jammah because the prophet did that with (tahajud /taraweeh) & because the reward of salah in jamah is greater ? No one will agree to this. Why? because the prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) never prayed them that way. Mawlid nabiyy is one of the things in the deen he never did. It is Sunnah not to do what the prophet (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam) did not do (in the deen).Therefore, it is HARAM to celebrate Maulud Nabiyy. Stay away from innovations. Stand up 4 Islam!
Worship in Islam, is defined as anything we do with the intention of getting closer to Almighty Allah or getting reward from Allah. Imam Ahmad, Sh. Ibn Tammiyah & all other great & competent scholars derived from the Islamic Sharia that : “ With regard to all acts of WORSHIP in terms of TIME, PLACE ,TYPE, NUMBER, FREQUENCY or MANNER etc. of doing them, it is based on the principle of “TAWQEEF” i.e. ALL ACTS OF WORSHIP INCLUDING (MAULUD NABIYY,DUA,DHIKR etc.) ARE FORBIDEN UNLESS SANCTIONED BY THE QURAN & AUTHENTHIC HADITH; THERE IS NO ROOM FOR OPINIONS, EMOTIONS & INNOVATIONS.THE REVERSE IS ALSO TRUE. ALL INNOVATIONS IN WORLDLY AFFAIRS ARE PERMITTED EXCEPT WHERE SPECIFICALLY PROHIBITED BY THE QURAN & AUTHENTIC SUNNAH. All innovations in the Deen are prohibited. The worst of affairs are the novelties; every novelty (in the deen) is an innovation, every innovation is misguidance & every misguidance is in the Fire.” An-Nasaa’e. This is a principle every true & sincere Muslim must memorise. There is no such self-contradictions & incompatibles like “GOOD BIDI’A” or “GOOD SHIRK” or “GOOD KUFR” in Islam . Abu Dharr (radiallahuanihu) : Messenger (Sal Allaahu Alaiyhi wa Sallam): “There is nothing by means of which one may draw close to Paradise & move far away from Hell but it has been explained to you. (Tabarani).
