Does The Prophet’s Birthday Have Any Basis In Islam?

Postby Shehzad Sattar » Sat Dec 24, 2016 11:08 pm

Reference: Al-Mawrid fee amalil-al-mawlid – page 20-22

al-’Allaamah Taajud-Deen al-Maaliki[1] said: I do not know of any credible evidence established from either the Qur’an or Sunnah in regards to the Prophet’s birthday; neither has such an action been related back to anyone of the scholars of the Ummah, whom are the role model in terms of the Deen, strictly following the narrations of the earlier predecessors.

Rather it is an innovation in the religion, invented and introduced by the Fatimids [2], and it is a personal desire with which the greedy use to obtain wealth and money as a result of practicing these innovated actions in the Deen.

1) He is Umar bin Ali bin Saalim bin Sadaqah al-Lakhmee (654-734AH, famously known as al-Iskandaree. Ibn Kathir described him as being ‘as-sheikh al-imam’. Refer to al-Bidaayah wan-Nihaayah Volume 14, page 168.

2) Arab Ismaili dynasty (296-566AH) originating from modern day Tunisia and Algeria

حكم الإحتفال بالمولد النبوي

المرجع: المورد في عمل المولد – ص20-22

قال: لا أعلم لهذا المولد أصلاً في كتاب ولا سنة، ولا ينقل عمله عن أحد من علماء الأمة، الذين هم القدوة في الدين، المتمسكون بآثار المتقدمين، بل هو بدعة أحدثها البطّالون، وشهوة نفس اعتنى بها الأكّالون.. إلخ
The Prophet ﷺ said:

“Make things easy and do not make things difficult. Give glad tidings and do not repel people..”

[متفق عليه]
