The month of milad-un-nabi صلي الله عليه و سلم

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Monday 10th March, 2008

muhammadsaw.gifThe month of the Milad of Our beloved master Sayyidina RasulAllah Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is here. A month to think about the life of our beloved Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam and relate it to ourselves. Are we following the examples set out my our master, are we carrying out his orders, are we following his advice..??

Actually this should be done every day every hour and every second of our lives. But we are only human and we forget, so let us take this opportunity to just stop and think throughout this month and try and mend our ways. Inshallah.

Lets also make this month, a month to praise the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam the way he should be praised, the way he deserves to be praised. In the best possible manner, with the utmost love & respect.

We should not look unto this month as a month to celebrate the birthday of the prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam but as a time to commemmorate and honour him and his blessed and miraculous birth.

Thousands and millions round the world will be holding Mawlid gatherings and there will also be a minority but powerful numbers of individuals and groups prohibiting people from this blessed practice and saying that it is no different to any other birthday celebration ie like christmas.

Actually, celebrating the Prophet’s birthday means celebrating the birth of Islam……..Shaykh al-qardawi.

The shaykh also states,We all know that the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) did not celebrate the Prophet’s birthday, Hijrah or the Battle of Badr, because they witnessed such events during the lifetime of the Prophet who always remained in their hearts and minds.Sa`d Ibn Abi Waqqas said that they were keen on telling their children the stories of the Prophet’s battles just as they were keen on teaching them the Qur’an. Therefore, they used to remind their children of what happened during the Prophet’s lifetime so they did not need to hold such celebrations. However, the following generations began to forget such a glorious history and its significance. So such celebrations were held as a means of reviving great events and the values that we can learn from them.

Sending salawaat on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is already enjoined in the Qur’an; praising the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) is also an established tradition we have inherited from the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) himself; so no one can consider it a bid’ah or an innovation in religion.
