As we are not scholars of Hadith and Tafseer, we cannot claim to understand the orders of theQur’an and Hadith by ourselves. For this reason, Allah (Subhanahu Wata’ala) selects from theUmmah of His Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) people who are Masters of Islamicknowledge and Islamic Law. Hence, when we need guidance with matters pertaining to Islam,we need to refer to the writings of these pious Ulema (scholars). Let us now examine what the scholars have said about the Meelad Shareef.
Allamah Isma’il Haqqi writes in ‘Tafseer Roohul Bayaan’:
“To commemorate Meelad Shareef is showing respect for the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘AlaihiWasallam) so long as the Meelad is free from bad things. Imam Suyuti says that to proclaimhappiness at the birth of the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) is Mustahab(recommended).
Hafiz ibn Hajar and Imam Suyuti
Allamah Isma’il Haqqi writes in ‘Tafseer Roohul Bayaan’ that Hafiz ibn Hajar and ImamSuyuti have proven the validity of the Meelad Shareef from the Sunnah and have answeredthose people who call it a bad practice.
Muhammad bin Isma’il Bukhari narrates in Sahih Bukhari:
When Abu Lahab died, someone from his household saw him in a dream and asked him howhe was. Abu Lahab replied, “After parting from you, I am not given any good or relief.However, because I released Thuwayba (Abu Lahab’s slave), I get water every Monday fromthe finger with which I pointed for her to go free and I feel some comfort”. Abu Lahab released Thuwayba after hearing that his brother’s wife, Aaminah (RadiyallahuTa’ala Anha) had given birth to our beloved Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam).
Shaikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith-e-Dehlwi writes in ‘Madarij-un-Nubuwah’:
“Abu Lahab was a kaafir and he receives a reward for showing happiness at the birth of theProphet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam). It is evident from this that the celebrators of theMeelad Shareef are indeed performing a useful act. Abu Lahab was a kaafir and is rewardedsimply because he released a slave, then what a great reward it will be for that Muslim whospends his wealth for the Meelad Shareef”.
Muhaddith ibn Juzri writes in ‘Zarqani Shareef’:
“When Abu Lahab, the kaafir, was rewarded for showing gratitude at the birth of the Prophet(Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) then what will be the merit of that believing Muslim who showsimmense love for the Meelad Shareef and also spends his wealth towards its enactment? Iswear by my life, his reward, by the eternal Mercy of Allah, will be that he will be enteredinto heaven”.
Allamah Qastalani (commentator of Bukhari) writes in ‘Mawahibul Ladunya’:
“And the gatherings of Meelad have been occurring always within the Ahl-e-Islam. Alongwith happiness and joy, they cook food and invite others. In the nights of Rabi-ul-Awwal,they perform all kinds of virtuous acts and show their gratitude. Therefore, upon such peopleis Allah’s special favour and grace. The year in which Meelad is commemorated, that yearbecomes full of peace and safety. The celebrators’ inner demands become fulfilled. Allahendows great mercy upon that person who made the nights of Rabi-ul-Awwal into an Eid”.
Both Allamah Qastalani (in Mawahibul Ladunya) and Shaikh Abdul Haq Muhaddith-e-Dehlwi (in Masabatu Bissunnah) write: “The night of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam) is better than the ‘Lailatul Qadr’ which is better than a thousand months”.

Imam’Allamah Mahmud al- Alusi Rehmatullahi ‘Alaih mentions in Tafsir Ruh al Ma’ani:
After the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) had passed away the Companions, used to go to the House of his beloved wife Hazrath Maimuna (Radi Allahu anha), to look at a mirror utilized by the beloved Prophet Muhammad (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam) that she had kept safely. In this mirror they did not see themselves but the image of the beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam).
The mirror had refused to let go of the image of the beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Mujtaba (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam).
Ruh al-Ma’ani: The full name of this tafseer is ‘Ruh al-Ma’ani fi Tafseer al-Quran al-’Azim wa al-Sab al-Mathani’ and it was written by ‘Allamah Mahmud al-Alusi Rehmatullahi ‘Alaih, the famous scholar of the last Period of Baghdad, and comprises of thirty volumes.
(For those that say the current traditions Mawlid was invented centuries after the passing away from this world of the Holy Prophet (Sall’Allahu Ta’ala Alayhi Wa’alihi Wa’sallam), should look at this piece, especially the dates)
The beginning of the celebration of the Meelad Shareef in its present form lies with the ruler of Irbil, Sultan Muzaffar whose full name is Abu Said Kukabri Ibn Zain al-Din Ali Ibn Baktagin, who is counted among the great Sultans and generous leaders. He was responsible for many other noble works as well. Among the many monuments set up by him was the Jami Muzaffari, which he had constructed near Mount Tasiyun.
Ibn Kathir (radi Allahu anhu) writes about Sultan Muzaffar as follows: “Sultan Muzaffar used to arrange the celebration of the Meelad Shareef with due honour, glory, dignity and grandeur. In this connection, he used to organise a magnificent festival. He was a pure-hearted, brave and wise Alim and a just ruler. May Allah shower His Mercy on him and grant him an exalted status. Sheikh Abu al-Khattab Ibn Dhiyah also wrote a book for him on the Meelad Shareef entitled ‘al-Tanwir fi Mawlid al-Bashir al-Nadhir’ (Enlightenment on the Birthday of the Bearer of Good News, the Warner). For this book Sultan Muzaffar awarded him a gift of one thousand dinars. Sultan Muzaffar remained the ruler until his death, which occurred in 630 A.H. in the city of ‘Akka when he had the Europeans under siege. In short he was a man of piety and noble disposition”.
Sibt Ibn al-Jauzi (radi Allahu anhu) wrote in “Mir’at al-Zaman” that Read the rest of this entry »
The great Shaykh ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah be well pleased with him, said in his Futuh al-Ghayb:
There are ten virtues to be practiced by those engaged in spiritual struggle and self-examination. If they keep them up and master them by Allah’s leave (Exalted is He), they will attain to noble stations.
- The servant should not swear by Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He), whether truthfully or falsely, deliberately or absentmindedly. If he exercises this kind of self-control and trains his tongue accordingly, it will bring him to the point where he can give up swearing altogether, with or without premeditation. Once he has become accustomed to this, Allah will open a door to His lights, letting him experience the benefit thereof in his heart, and raising him in rank and strength, in his resolve and his patience, in the approbation of his brethren and the esteem of his neighbors, so that all who know him will regard him as a good example, and everyone who sees him will hold him in awe.
- He should avoid lying, whether in jest or in earnest. If he practices this self-control and his tongue gets used to being restrained, Allah (Exalted is He) will thereupon expand his feelings and purify his mind. It will be as if he had no knowledge of lying, and when he hears it from another he will reproach and rebuke him for it within himself. If he prays for the person to be rid of it, there will be a reward for him. Read the rest of this entry »
