Proof of Milad
And the Deobandi Hatred for Celebrating the Birth of the Messenger
sallalahu alaihi wassalam
All praise be to Allah azzawajal that the holy month of Rabi-ul-Awwal is again around the corner and I pray that we all get to see it. The month of Rabi-ul-Awwal is HOLY and BLESSED because the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon Him and His Family) was born in it. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon Him and His family) was born on the 12th Night of this month.
Rabi-ul-Awwal is also known as Rabi-un-Noor, meaning the month of Light. The Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaat believe that the Holy Prophet - sallalahu alaihi wassalam- is Noor (light) and Bashar (human).
Hazrat’e Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlwi(Rahmatullah alaihi) says, ‘Indeed, the night The Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam was born is better than Shab-e-Qadr because on this night The Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam was born and Shab-e-Qadr was given to The Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam. The night which is blessed because of the arrival of the Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam is better than that night which is blessed because of the descent of the angels. (maa sabata bis’sunna, P289)
Billions of Muslims throughout the World celebrate the Holy Birth of the Prophet Muhammad sallalahu alaihi wassalam in this month. In fact the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal is a national holiday in every Muslim country except Saudi Arabia and Kuwait (for obvious reason – hint: Wahabism)
And why should they not celebrate and be happy on this beutiful occasion when Allah az’zawajal Himself orderes Muslim’s to REJOICE?
There is no doubt in the fact that The Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam arrived as a mercy and indeed that day is a day of happiness when a mercy is sent by Allah az’zawajal . Allah az’zawajal says in the Holy Qur’an, Para 11, Surah Yunus, Verse 58: Say- you, ‘only Allah’s’ grace and only His mercy, on it therefore let them rejoice. That is better than all their wealth.
Allahu-Akbar! To celebrate upon receiving Allah az’zawajal’s blessing is commanded by the Holy Qur’an and can there be a greater mercy than the Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam? It is clearly stated in the Holy Qur’an, Para 17, Surah Al-Ambiya, Verse 107: And We sent you not, but a mercy for all worlds.
There are many ways a person can celebrate this blessed occasion. The most common way is to take part in the Milaad Jaloos (procession) and Alhamdullilah last year 2011 we had the first Milaad Jaloos in Nottingham! Normally local Sunni Mosques will hold a gathering to remember the life of the Holy Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam. I would advise you all to make sure to attend and show your happiness aswell.
Milaad celebrations are not limited to once a year you can celebrate it everyday, just like the dawat-e-islami followers they fast every Monday out of happiness of the Birth of the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam.
After the death of Abu Lahab, some people of his family saw him in a pitiful state and asked him as to what had happened. He replied, ‘I have received no happiness after leaving you but I receive water through my index finger because by using this finger I freed my slave girl suwaibah. (Bukhari, V1, P153, Hadith No. 5101)
Concerning this narration, Sayyiduna Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlwi رَحْمَةُ الله عَلَيْه states, in this event there is great evidence for those who celebrate the birth of The Holy Prophet and spend their wealth on this occasion. (When Abu Lahab, who was a strong disbeliever, received the news of the blessed birth of The Holy Prophet , he freed his slave girl suwaibah and because of this he was rewarded, so imagine how much reward that Muslim will get who spends his wealth with full happiness on this occasion. However, it is important that the Milad gathering be pure of music.) (madaari-jun-nubuwwat, V2, P34)
An Islamic scholar says that I saw the Holy Prophet in my dream and asked, ‘Ya Rasool-Allah , do you like it when Muslims celebrate your birth every year?’ The Holy Prophet replied, ‘Whoever is happy with me, I am happy with them.’ (tazkira-tul-wa’izeen, P600)
Sheikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi says, ‘The reward of celebrating the birth of The Holy Prophet is that through his mercy, Allah enters these people into Janna-tun-Naeem. Muslims have always celebrated the birth of the Holy Prophet by cooking feasts, inviting guests and by giving charity in abundance. They express their happiness and spend open-heartedly. Through the blessing of this, Allah showers his blessings upon them.’ (ma sabata bis’sunna, P290)
The main scholar that 41 preachers follow writes
“Celebrating Milad-un-Nabi is similar to that of Hindu’s celebration on birth of their “Kanhia”.” Ref: Barahin-e-Qatia (Pg148, Published By: Muhammad Ishaq Maalik Kutb khana Rahimia Saharanpur in 1365 AH, Written By: Khalil Anbethwi)..
He also writes that you cannot eat the food from these sorts of gatherings because it is haram!and if any food from these events is sent to them then they would throw it out.Thats why you dont see 41 preachers at any milaad events in Nottingham (or throughout the world) because they see it as haram to remember the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam, In fact we have learnt that they consider it a hindu tradition to have gatherings in which the Prophet is remembered.”
Yet they have no problem with hindu gatherings – more info click this link
These people claim they are the only true followers of the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam so then why so much hatred for him? Doesn’t this prove that the preachers of 41 mosque and other deobandi followers are just trying to implement an agenda set by their british masters which is to take away any sort of love and respect for the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam from the hearts of the Muslim’s.
Have preachers from 41 and bilal mosque not split apart our community for too long? just think about it. We have households in which kids are doing eid on one day and their parents doing it on another day! we have kids calling their parents idol worshippers and innovators.
The first one that was unhappy upon the birth of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam was the devil. The devil cried loudly four times, first when Allah declared him as cursed, second when he was thrown out, Third When Prophet (sallalahu alaihi wassalam) was born and fourth when Surah Fatiha was revealed [Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah wan Nihayah, Volume 2, Page No. 166]
So it is a practise of the Devil not to celebrate the Milad of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam so if these 41 preachers were followers of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam would they not then celebrate his birth? Why do they act like followers of the devil? If they were real Muslim’s why do they forbid themselves from being happy on this joyous occasion? And why do they follow people who liken this great festival to a Hindu festival? Surely if they were true Muslim’s they would be celebrating the birth of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam. Why is it that for the last 25 years Sneinton Mosque has held functions for this special event yet not once has 41 held any such event in Praise of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam? It’s because 41 preachers are not true Muslim’s they are misguided and want to misguide others, they want to take away the love of the Prophet Sallalahu alaihi wassalam from the hearts of the Muslim’s.
Please wake up!
All Praise Be To Allah az’zawajal we are SUNNI and Insha’Allah will Keep the Love of the Prophet sallalahu alaihi wassalam alive in our Hearts!
