Default The Prophet's Birthday

THE CELEBRATION OF THE PROPHET’S BIRTHDAY

الإحتفال با لمولد النبوي على ضوء الكتاب والسنة و الحقائق التاريخية


IN THE LIGHT OF THE QUR’AAN, THE PURIFIED SUNNAH, AND HISTORICAL FACTS.

ترجمة اللغة الإنجليزية: ذوا الفقار إبراهيم الأثري


الحمد لله رب العا لمين و الصلاة والسلام على رسوله الكريم!

All Praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Aa’lameen (mankind, Jinn and all that exists) and may the peace and blessings be upon His honourable messenger (Muhammad).

قال الله تعالى: قل ان كنتم تحبون الله فاتبعونى يحببكم الله و يغفرلكم ذنوبكم والله غفور رّحيم (أل عمران:31)

“Say (O Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic monotheism, follow the Qur’aan and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive you of your sins, And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.”

قال الله تعالى : وما أتاكم اللرسول فخذوه ومانهاكم عنه فانتهوا واتقوا الله ان الله شديد العقاب (الحشر: 7)

“And whatsoever the Messenger (Muhammad, (صلى الله عليه وسلم) gives you, take it; and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain (from it). And fear Allah; verily Allah is Severe in Punishment.”

و قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: تركت فيكم أمرين لن تضلوا ما تمسكتم بهما كتاب الله و سنة نبيه
(مؤطا إمام مالك, رقم الحديث 648)

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “ I am leaving behind two things, you shall never be lead astray if you hold firm to these two, the book of Allah, and the Sunnah of His Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).”





The Celebration of Prophet’s Birthday in the era of the Messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and his noble companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين)’


There is no doubt or uncertainty that firm belief and affection towards the Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) is considered as strong belief. Every minute of his life is regarded as a reflective torch of guidance for our lives. In fact, no one can truly be a believer until the love of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) has preference and precedence over his life, wealth, parents, children, and the whole of mankind.

Surely, no Muslim has ever opposed or differed on the above issue. And we also believe that Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthmaan, Ali and all other companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين) loved the Prophet in the highest degree possible. Their love for him reached the best and highest position ever attained by anyone, such that it is said about them, “Allah is pleased with them and they are pleased with Him” (رضي الله عنهم ورضوا عنه).

We also believe that the manner of love and obedience toward the Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم) as exemplified by the companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين) was taught to them by the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), which was the most dignified and elevated in status. No true believer whose love for the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) is true can disagree or differ on this significant point.

But unfortunately there are still people today who have introduced and adopted different ways of love for the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). Ways that were neither exemplified nor practiced by the noble companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين). An example is specifying the 12th of Rabiul-Awwal for celebrating the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) birthday, illuminating and lighting special kind of lamps, hoisting flags, marching in the streets, feeding and distributing money to the poor, celebrating this day as a holiday, making images of the green mausoleum (dome) that is above the blessed grave of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) at Madeenah, strolling and circumambulation with it, around the streets and markets, forming congregational gatherings in order to send peace and blessings upon the prophet in a collective audible fashion.

All the above acts are positively innovated acts, which are in opposition to the methodology of the companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين). Therefore, they are worthy of being classified as contrary to the actions of companions (رضي الله عنهم اجمعين).

Because of the saying of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم):


و قال النبي صلي الله عليه وسلم: عليكم بسنتي وسنة الخلفاء الرشدين
(ابو داؤد, الترمذي وقال حسن صحيح)




“Upon you is to cling to my Sunnah and to the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs.”

In addition, it is evident and obvious to all people that to celebrate the 12th Rabiul-Awwal as the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) birthday and to do all the above things is not regarded as the Prophet’s Sunnah or the Sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs. But yes, we can say that it is regarded as the Sunnah of the Christians, who celebrate Issa’s (عليه صلوة والسلام) birthday on the 25th of December.

We have been commanded to oppose and differ from the People of the Book (Jews & Christians).

و قال النبي صلي الله عليه وسلم: خالفوا أهل الكتاب (مسند أحمد, رقم الحديث 2234)

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Oppose the People of Book (Jews & Christians).”

If in reality celebrating the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) birthday was such a rewarding and blessed action, then how could it be possible that such a rewarding and magnificent act was not done by the companions رضي الله عنهم اجمعين))? Why did they deprive themselves from such a blessed action? Whereas it is explicitly clear and accepted by all, that the companions رضي الله عنهم اجمعين)), every single one of them, was obliterate and tactful in following all the elegant examples of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).




The Historical glance and reality in celebrating the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) birthday


Six centuries of Islam had passed and there was no origin of this innovated act. The era of the companions passed by رضي الله عنهم اجمعين)), the era of the Tabe’een passed by, the period of the great Imaams of hadeeth and Jurists passed by, and none of them perceived or were endowed with this innovated act.

However, it was perceived and introduced by an extravagant king by the name of Muzafar-Adeen (died 630 A.H.) who employed a scholar to legalise this celebration. He paid a reward of one thousand Dinaars to this worldly scholar who was devoted to worldly pleasures. The worldly scholar’s name was Umar Bin Dahiyyah (died 633 A.H.). He was the culprit responsible for introducing this innovated act in the year 604 A.H. (seventh century of Islam) .

Let us now examine and analyse the rulings and judgments that the ancient researching scholars have made regarding the extravagant king and the worldly scholar.

The great historian Ahmed Bin Muhammad Misree writes: “Muzafarud-Deen was an extravagant king who would celebrate the Prophet’s birthday. He was the first person to introduce this act.” Moreover, nearly every year he would spend approximately three hundred thousand rupees on this innovated act.

Imam Ibn Kathir has written regarding the innovating scholar Umar Bin Dahiyyah saying that he was a liar. People discarded his narrations and held themselves back from trusting them. For this reason he was extremely humiliated and degraded.

و قال ابن حجر العسقلاني: كثير الوقيحة في الأئمة السلف من العلماء خبيث اللسان أحمق شديد الكبر قليل النظر في امور الدين متهاونا (لسان الميزان 4,296)

Hafiz Ibn Hajar Asqalaani says: about Umar Ibn Dahiyyah: “He was very impudent and would insolently speak ill of the great Imaams and the Salaf (the predecessors). He possessed a filthy and evil tongue. He was extremely foolish, stupid, and arrogant. He had very little insight of the affairs of the Deen and was lazy.”

و قال ابن حجر العسقلاني: قال ابن التجار: رأيت الناس مجتمعين علي كذبه وضعفه (لسان الميزان, 4,295)

Hafiz Ibn Hajar Asqalaani also narrates: Ibn Tujjar’s saying: “I found that there was a consensus amongst the people regarding Umar Ibn Dahiyyah being a liar and weak.”

و قال عبد الرحمن مغربي في الفتاوى: إن عمل المولد بدعة لم يقل به و لم يفعله رسول الله صلي الله عليه و سلم والخلفاء والأئمة. (الشرعية الا لهية)

Allamah Abdur-Rahman Maghrabee has written in his Fataawaa: “No doubt the celebration of the Prophet’s birthday is an innovation, it was never practiced by the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), nor his companions the rightly guided caliphs, and the great Imaams; nor did anyone of them command that it should be practiced.

وقال أحمد بن محمد مصري مالكي: قد اتفق العلماء المذهب الاربعة بذم هذا العمل. (القول المعتمد)

Allamah Ahmed Bin Muhammad Misree Maalikee says: “Verily there is a consensus amongst the scholars of the four Madhabs on the derogation (dispraise) of this action.”

Oh respectful Muslim! In the light of all the above evidences and the witnessing of other proofs it becomes obvious to every single person that the people of the best generations up until the 6th Century of Islam were not aware of this innovated act, in fact it became known in the 7th century of Islam due to the effort of an extravagant king and a worldly innovating scholar.

If after knowing all this, if even then a person is to assume this action to be a rewarding action, a cause of attaining closeness to Allah and His messenger (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and an action of love and gratitude then the remedy for this person can only be given by Allah, which is guidance.

Is there a consensus amongst the Researching Ancient Scholars of History regarding the birth date of the Prophet
(صلى الله عليه وسلم)?


So let us examine, analyse and research on this day that the people specify for the Prophet’s birthday. Is it actually the exact day on which the prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم)) was born?

Imam Ibn Kathir in his book “Al-Bidaayah Wan-Nihaayah” has narrated all the differing opinions of the scholars:

1. The Prophet was born on the 2nd of Rabiul-Awwal. 1. " قيل الليلتين خلتامنه"
2. The Prophet was born on the 8th of Rabiul-Awwal. 2. " و قيل لثمان خلون منه"
3. The Prophet was born on the 10th of Rabiul-Awwal. 3. " و قيل لعشر خلون منه"
4. The Prophet was born on the 12th of Rabiul-Awwal. 4. " وقيل لثنتي عشرة خلت منه"
5. The Prophet was born on the 18th of Rabiul-Awwal. 5. " وقيل الثامن عشر من شهر ربيع الأول"
6. The Prophet was born on the 17th of Rabiul-Awwal. 6. " و قيل لسبعة عشر خلت منه"
7. The Prophet was born on the 12th of Ramadhanul-Mubarak. 7. " لثنتي عشرة ليلة من شهر رمضان" (البداية والنهاية – 2,320)
8. The Prophet was born on the 9th Rabiul-Awwal. 8. " التاسع من شهر ربيع الأول “


Allamah Safiur-Rahmaan Mubarakpuri (Hafidhahullah) chose the last opinion in his book “The Sealed Nectar”.

Respectful reader! From the above statements you have come to know that the honourable Imaams could not specify an actual birth date for the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم). How then is it possible that the so-called scholars of today specify a birth date? What evidence do they refer to? Whereas the Imaams, Scholars of History, and the Muhaddeetheen, could not even specify an exact date?

We do say in response that, in reality, those who celebrate the Prophet’s are actually celebrating the Prophets death. This is because the date of the death of the Prophet was on the 12th Rabiul-Awwal.

A final word: May Allah, The Glorified and Exalted, give all the Muslims the ability to abstain from all types of innovation and obscenity and guide all Muslims to follow the Qur’aan and Sunnah according to the Understanding of the noble companions
رضي الله عنه اجمعين) ). Ameen!

Excellent post and a very relevant topic for us in Trinidad.

It is great to the see the ayaahs and the proofs as clear evidence against this practice.

Shaikh Ali Naasir Al Faqee said in his book called : "Al Bid'ah"



Verily the celebration of the Prophet's birthday is an innovation, the Prophet (Salallahu alahi wa sallam) never celebrated it, neither did the four rightly guided Caliphs or anyone of his companions celebrate it, and they know most about his Sunnah, and they were the most diligent in praising the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and having respect for him, and verily the ones who innovated this practise of celebrating the Prophet's (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) birthday in addition to other celebrating other birthdays were the Faatimiyuun and they are the Sheeah.



Taaj Ud Deen Al Faakahaani said: "I do not know any basis of this action from the book of Allah or the Sunnah of his Messenger (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam), and it isn't written from any of the scholars of this Religion and they are the guiding lights of this religion who hold on to the narrations of those before them. But it is an innovation that the innovators have come up with... ."



Shaikh Ibn Baaz said: "It is unlawful to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and other than this because it is innovation in the religion, and because the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) never did it, neither did his rightly guided caliphs do it, neither did other than them from the companions (radiallaho anhum) do it neither did the followers of the companions from the first three generations, and they know the most about the Sunnah, and have the most complete love toward the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and in following the Shar'iah more than those who came after them. And the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) has said : "Whoever ! innovates in our deen which is not from it it (the action) is rejected", and in another Hadeeth he said: "Upon you is my sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly guided caliphs who come after me, hold on to it and bite it with your molar teeth, and beware of newly invented matters, for every newly invented matter is a bid'ah, and every bid'ah is misguidance." Taken from the book (The Pillars of Islam)



Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Al Uthaimeen said: "Celebrating the Prophet's birthday has no basis and it because if it had a basis it would have been done by the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) or he would have informed his nation about it, and if he (salallahu alaihi wa sallam) did it or informed his Ummah about it it would have been preserved (in his sunnah) because Allah said : "We have sent down the Rememberance and he have preserved it". Therefore since there is no basis of this in the religion of Allah it is known that it is outside his religion, and if it is outside the religion of ALlah then it is not lawful to worship Allah by it using it to come closer to him." Taken from the book (Fatwa on the pillars of Islam)

Shaikh Ibraheem Aaal Ash Shaikh said in his book : The ruling on celebrating Maulid:

The first doubt : That celebrating this although it is an innovation the ummah has accepted it.... .

And he mentioned about this doubt:

Saying that due to the fact that the Ummah has accepted it does not make it good and it does not mean anything. Because the companions and who came after them left it and never did it. Imam Ash Shatibi said: "When Innovation and going against the Sunnah became normal amongst people the Jahil started to say " If it were evil the people would not have done this"
And Shaikh Ul Islam Ibn Taymeeyah said that using this as a proof is not from the way of the people of knowledge, but it is from ignorance that many people ascribe to even from those who say they have knowledge, and he demonstrated that making something good within the eyes of the people when this matter or issue does not come from the book of Allah or the Sunnah of the Messenger is not from the way of knowledge and Eeman, he said : "And as to depend on something in an Issue of religion that does not depend on the book of Allah or Sunnah of the Messenger in saying or action it is a category from the categories of nifaaq in terms of seeking knowledge, argumentation, rhetoric and action."

Shaikh Ibn Baaz said:

And it is known that the Prophet Salallahu alaihi wa sallam is the best of all Prophets and the last of them, and the most complete in terms of delivering the message and advising them. Hence if doing this action was from the religion of Allah that Allah would have been pleased with fro his Prophet (Salalllahu alaihi wa salllam) and his ummah, or that he did it during his life, or that his companions did it radiallaho anhum(it would have been lawful) however this never happened and from this it is known that Maulid An Nabee is not from Islam, but it is from the innovations that the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) warned against.... ."

A refutation on those who say the Maulid is Lawful

And some of the scholars have said that doing this action is from innovation using the aformentioned evidences, and some of the later scholars (Like Imam As Suyuti) has said that it is lawful once it does not contain evil, like going overboard in terms of praise of the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam), and men and women mixing, and using musical instruments and other than those things which the Shariah has made unlawful.
And the great principle of the Shariah is that when there is disagreement in a matter it must be returned to the book and the sunnah. Allah said : "Oh ye who believe obey Allah and the Prophet and those in authority amongst you, and if you disagree on a matter return it to Allah and the Prophet if you believe in Allah and the last day..... ." And Allah has said : "And if you disagree about something then it has to be brought back to Allah (to the revelation)
And we have looked at this issue : the celebration of the Prophet's birthday, to the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his messenger, and we find that the book of Allah orders us to obey the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) in what he came with, and warns us from what he has forbidden, and it informs us that Allah has completed this religion of Islam for the Ummah, and this celebration of the Prophet's birthday has not come from the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) hence it cannot be from the religion which Allah has completed for us, and which Allah has ordered.
And we returned this matter to the Sunnah of the Messenger (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) and we find no instance in where he did it, neither did we find any instance where he ordered it to be done, and the Prophet's Companions never did it (and they were the purest of hearts, the least likely to go astray and most knowledgable than the rest of this nation), hence we know from this that it is not from the religion, instead it is an innovation that has been innovated, and it is imitation of the Kuffar from the Jews and Christians (Who celebrate Christmas) in their celebrations.
And through this it is made clear with for the one who has some knowledge and wants the truth, and does justice in his research that celebrating the Birthday of the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) is not from the religion of Islam, but it is from the innovations, that Allah and his prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) have ordered to leave and have warned against, and it is not for a person who has sense to follow what many people may do, wherever else it may be, because the truth is not known by the amount of people who do it but by the evidences of the Qur'an and the Sunnah.

Ibn Rajab Al Hanbali said: "The men are known by the truth and the truth is not known by the men"

Shaikh Ubaid Al Jaabiree said about this Principle: "The meaning of this principle is that: People are described with holding on to the sunnah, and being from Ahlus Sunnah, and that they are upon the truth once they are not upon innovation and evil actions and this is a sign that the person os upon the truth: meaning that the person follows the truth (Evidences from the Qur'an and Sunnah and Consensus) in his sayings and actions; and this is the first part of the sentence.
And the truth are not known by men : meaning that because a person acts or does certain things it does not mean he is correct. But as I have mentioned before ; the yarstick in terms of actions and statements according to Ahlus Sunnah who are the Salafis who are Ahlul Hadeeth and the saved sect are two things: the evidences (from the Qur'an and Sunnah ) and consensus.
Hence using the statement of As Suyuti cannot be used as an evidence to show that celebrating Maulid is lawful. Rather the evidence has to come from the Qur'an and Sunnah and Consensus and there is nothing in the Qur'an, Sunnah or Consensus to show that celebrating the Birthday of the Prophet (Salallahu alaihi wa sallam) is lawful.

And the Salaf used to say: Every innovation is misguidance, even if the people see it as good.
Hence this shows that even if many people celebrate Maulid an Nabee it is not rendered as a lawful celebration unless it has evidence to show that it is lawful to celebrate.

This is another article written by Shaykh Ibn Baz on the topic, It is also a response to an article in a magazine from the subcontinent, whereby the author tries to justify this innovated practice.

Default Tazeem

Assalam u alaikum

Concerning the practice of tazeem here in Trinidad. Do you know that when a large Islamic organization conducts interviews for new teachers in its many primary and secondary schools and colleges, one of the questions usually asked of our young brothers and sisters is "Will you stand for tazeem?" If you answer "No" guess what?

Ask around for yourselves those who have been to such interviews.

Also when the schools have their functions everyone, adult and child alike have to stand for tazeem.
And usually the president and chairman and high ranking officers of the organization are present.

Na'm, haadhal kalaamu saheeh.

It's true, this has been narrated to me through authentic chains.

What is 'tazeem' and what are you all talking about, seriously?

Tazeem is a practice....whereby the people sing a certain qaseeda (nasheed). They sing it standing as if in Salaah...at a certain point in the song they "welcome" the prophet and they believe he comes to them.. Maybe someone can give a better explanation.

Saheeh... some of them say that they are 'standing out of respect' for the Prophet salallahu 'alaihi wa sallam. They sing together 'Marhaban'... some of them are ignorant of what it really means, while some of them actually have the 'aqeedah that the Prophet salallahu'alaihi wa sallam enters their gathering.

whatever the case may be, Hudhaifa radhiyallahu 'anhu said: 'whatever the worship the Companions of the Messenger of Allaah, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam didn't do, don't you do it..."
