Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif – Great Scholars Views

Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif -Great Scholars Views

Some ignorant people say that Mawlid is Innovation from India and Pakistan, last fewmawlid an nabawi decades which was influenced by the Hindu Celebration culture and It was never ever celebrated before in previous ages. Let them have some glimpses of facts from the very true history.

1. After relating Abu Lahab’s relief on setting Thuwaibha free, Hazrat Maulana Shah Abdul Haq Dehlvi in his famous book Madarijun Nabuwwat says:

“This event provides a clear proof to those who celebrate Meelaad Shareef by rejoicing and alms giving on the night of the birth of the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), People of Makkah gather on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal to is it the house in which the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) only because he was his nephew, he has been receiving, in spite of this being an idolater, the benefits of thus rejoicing in his grave every Monday, then how much more blessing will fall to the lot of him who acknowledges the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) as the beloved of ALLAH and His true Prophet, and celebrates Meelaad Shareef repeatedly.”

As the poet says:

Dostaan Ra Kujaa Kunee Mahroom
Tu Keh Ba Dushmanaan Nazar Daree

How would you (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) leave out friends?
You, who feel great compassion, even for your enemies.”

2. Madarijun Nabbuwwat, Vol2, Page 14/19


2. Due to the rejoicing he made at the birth of the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), Imaam Qastalaani says:

“How would anyone of the Ummah the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) fare, who is a Muslim and is steadfast in his belief in the unity of Allah and rejoices at his (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) birth and who spends whatever he can afford for the love of him (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam)? I swear by my life, that Allah, out of His Grace, will not reward such a person but by entering him into the Gardens of Bliss.”

(Mawaahib-dunniyah by Imam Qastalani, Vol1, Page 27, Published in Egypt)


3. Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif

Imaam Qastalaani says: “May ALLAH bless a person who celebrates ‘Eid’ on the nights of the blessed month of the holy birth of the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam), so that it hurts them the most who have a serious disease in their hearts and who suffer from an incurable ailment on account of the blessed birth”.

 (Mawaahib-dunniyah by Imam Qastalani, Vol1, Page 27, Published in Egypt)

Oppositions would have now found the required word “Eid” in such an authentic book. If they do not agree with the writings of Imaam Qastalaani, then they should condemn those who have called this book the best and of great virtue.


​​4. Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif –

Imaam Qastalaani further says, “How blessed is the month in which the Prophet of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) was born! How very superior and sacred! How very respected the nights (of the month) as though they are pearls shining bright throughout the ages! How full of light and pure the face of the one born! How blessed the Being (ALLAH) who made the birth of the holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) a springtime for the hearts and his (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) face a manifestation of splendor!

Yaqoolu Lanaa-Lisaanul Haali Minhu.
The tongue of the Prophet of ALLAH (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) Speaks the truth. And the thing is that the voice of truth appears to be sweet to the listener

Wa Qaulul Haqqi Ya’zabu Lis Samee’ee
And, O questioner! If you want to know about my attributes and my affairs, I would say this:

Fawajhi Waz-Zamaanu Wa sharu Wad’ee
My face and my age and the month of my birth is springtime in the month of Rabee-ul-Awwal.

Rabee’un Fi Rabee ‘in Fi Rabee’ee
He (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) has likened his blessed face to springtime in respect of blessed beauty and splendor and that his face blossomed in springtime in the month of Rabee-ul-Awwal.

6. Ibne Jauzi has devoted a whole book to Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif/Meelaad, which is called “Maulad-ul-Uroos”. Allamah Ibne Jauzi says:

“And whosoever rejoices at the birth Mawlid an Nabawi Sharif of our beloved Mustafa (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam), this rejoicing by him will turn the Fire away, and whosoever spends even a dirham on the occasion of the Meelaad of the Prophet of ALLAH (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) he (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) will intercede on his behalf and his intercession will be accepted”.
