Despite War, Mawlid Still Celebrated In Iraq

http://video.google.co.uk/videoplay?docid=489703364225253828&q=Mawlid+In+Iraq&total=4&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=0 

In 2007, Mawlid was celebrated by Sunni Muslims on March 31st. It was celebrated by Shi’as on April 5th. In the Gregorian calendar, the standard calendar of Western countries, the date moves each year, because the Islamic calendar is lunar, while the Gregorian is solar. In Arabic, Mawlid means “birthday” and Mawlid An-Nabi is one of the formal names given to the specific day to celebrate Muhammad, or in Shi’a Islam, the family of Ali in particular.

Mawlid is the day when Sunnis and Shi’as mark the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. In fact, the 12th of Rabi’ul’Awwal, or 17th for Shi’as, is traditionally believed to be the date of Muhammad’s death. It was arbitrarily fixed as the date to celebrate his birth, in 1207, when Muzaffar ad-Din Gökburi, brother-in-law of the famous Saladin.

This year Isam Rasheed documented some of the celebrations in Adhamiya, where the Abu Hanifa Mosque is located. Because of the location of the Abu Hanifa Mosque, or Imam Adham Abu Hanifa Mosque, Sunnis from all over Baghdad, and even many provinces in Iraq used to travel to Adhamiya for the celebrations.

This year, due to insecurity and on-going sectarian violence, it has become difficult for even Sunnis in Baghdad to make it to Adhamiya. Despite all of these difficulties Iraqis such as Qusay Al-Adhamiy and Waleed Tarek would not let the celebrations occur without the proper festivities. They each helped pay for the festivities in their area of Adhamiya by donating time and money.

Impact of the Martyrdom of Imam Hussain (Alayhis Asalam)

‘Blood rained from the sky when the Shahaadah of Imaam Hussain took place’

 

It is reported that when Imam al-Hussain was killed, the sky rained down blood. (Nadra al-Azdiya, a woman who was contemporary with Imam al – Hussain (AS), is said to have reported: “When al-Hussain b. ‘Ali was killed, the sky rained down blood, so that next morning we found our wells and water jugs filled with it.” This hadith is narrated by Ibn Hajar. )

Ummul Fadhl the daughter of al-Harith said that she entered on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and she said: “Oh! Messenger of Allah, I saw a strange dream last night. He said: And what is it? She said: It was difficult. He said: And what is it? She said: I saw, as if, a piece of your body was severed and was put in my lap! The Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: You saw well – Fatima will give birth, God willing, a boy so he will be in your lap. Then Fatima gave birth to al-Hussain and he was in my lap – just as the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said. So I entered one day on the Messenger of Allah (SAW) and put him in his lap, but I noticed that the eyes of the Messenger of Allah (SAW) pouring tears! So I said: Oh! Prophet of Allah, my parents are your ransom, what is with you? He said: Gabriel (AS) came to me and informed me that my nation (ummah) will kill this son of mine.” (al-Mustadrak al-Sahih, al-Hafidh al-Hakim al-Nisapouri, v. 3, p. 176, (al-Hakim said: “This is an authentic hadith (Sahih) on the conditions of Bukhari and Muslim but they did not print it”); Dalael al-Nubouwa, al-Hafidh al-Bayhaqi under the subject of al-Hussain (AS); Cf. Ibn al-A’tham IV, (Hyderabad, 1971), p. 211-2, the author narrates this hadith using a different chain of narration).

Image of the Beloved Prophet (Salla Allahu ta’ala ‘alayhi wa Sallam)

 jalimubarik-large.jpg

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.

Origin of Milad an-Nabi (‘alayhis salam)

 mawlid.jpg

(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 »

Teachings of Sayyudina Shaykh Abd Al-Qadir Jilani (radiAllahu anhu)

darbar_ghaus_pak_outlook.jpg

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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 »

Saying “Ya Rasool’Allah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) Madad”

The permissibility to say ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace]

The sensitive issue of whether or not Muslims can say the words ‘Ya Rasool Allah’ or ‘Ya Muhammad!’ [May Allah bless him and grant him peace] needs to be clarified, since this issue divides the Muslim community and causes a great deal of friction among the Muslims throughout the world. Basically, there appears to be what we could label as two “schools of thought”. One insists that saying that stating “Ya Rasul Allah is ‘shirk’ and that any Muslim proclaiming it in fact goes outside the pale of Islam. Now the other School believes that it is indeed permissible to say so – based on evidences from the Salaf, and the tafsirs of later day scholars. However, they do not insist that one must proclaim this – or that it is even a fard to do so, rather, it is permissible to do so. This is, and always has been, the stance of the Ahl al-Sunna.

Does Rasool’Allah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wassalam) have a shadow?

We are living in a world of uncertainty and misconceptions. Man is beginning to question the very roots of his beliefs- Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet Sall Allahu alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallim, to create doubt in the minds of the simple and un suspecting Muslims. Some so-called scholars, not so long ago began a shocking campaign against the flawless personality of Allah Almighty in the form of ‘the possibility of telling a lie ‘ ; which plunged the Muslim world into utter disbelief and shock. This misguided man wrote: “Allah has power over everything. Thus if He so wishes , He can utter a lie” (Allah Forbid). It is true, when Allah Almighty wants to destroy a person, He first takes away his sanity. This religious heretic conveniently forgot the Quranic verse: “Curse of Allah be upon the liars”. Will Allah Almighty indulge in an activity which He himself has condemned? Unfortuantely, instead of dismissing this lie with the contempt that it deserves, many Muslims became the followers and disciples of this lunatic. Read the rest of this entry »
