Eid Milad-un-Nabi (and other celebrations)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

 رَبِّ اشْرَحْ لِي صَدْرِي ; وَيَسِّرْ لِي أَمْرِي ; وَاحْلُلْ عُقْدَةً مِنْ لِسَانِي ; يَفْقَهُوا قَوْلِي

Question has been raised about celebrations of Eid Milad-un-Nabi i.e. 12 Rabi-ul-Awwal of Hijri calendar. This particular issue is not the only one which is of concern to Muslims; rather, there are other celebrations as well which we Muslims do, without knowing the basis of these, without knowing why we are celebrating them, without knowing what does Islamic Shari’ah says about these. Insha’Allah, we shall try to study the subject in light of Qur’an and Ahadith. I will explain some verses from Holy Qur’an and then some Ahadith, and in the end we will analyze these celebrations in light of those, Insha’Allah. Let us study what Islam says about Celebrations of Eid Milad-un-Nabi (and other celebrations like anniversaries, birthdays etc.). 

To start with, let us see some verses from Holy Qur’an. 

 الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمْ الإِسْلامَ دِيناً

 “This day I have perfected (completed) your religion for you, completed My favourupon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”

(Aayah No. 3, Surah Al-Ma’idah, Chapter No. 5, Holy Qur’an). 

So, the religion (Islam) is a perfect one and complete. Complete in what sense? Complete in terms of Qur’an and Ahadith. 

One might say, OK, complete in terms of Qur’an is OK, but how can you say that Ahadith are also part of the process of completing the religion. The answer to this is again in Qur’an.  

وَأَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ إِنْ كُنتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ

 “Do ita’at of Allah & Rasool-Allah (PBUH), if you are Mumineen”.

(Aayah No. 1, Surah Al-Anfal, Chapter No. 8, Holy Qur’an). 

Ita’at of Allah is to follow Allah’s sayings i.e. Qur’an and Ita’at of Rasool-Allah (PBUH) is to follow Rasool-Allah’s sayings and acts i.e. Ahadith. 

So, going back, we now know that Allah has perfected our religion. Now there is no permission for anyone to remove anything from the religion, and neither anyone has the permission to make an addition to our religion. But what if someone asks: I agree that we cannot delete any thing from religion, but how can we be assured about addition? To answer this, let us study some Ahadith.  

It was narrated that Syeda Aishah (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Whoever introduces something into this matter of ours (religion) that is not part of it (religion), he/she will have it rejected (In another narration Ibn Eisa said, “Rasool-Allah, PBUH, said that whoever does something other than our matter, he/she will have it rejected i.e. the act as well as the person who does it, both will be rejected).”

(Hadith No. 4606, Book of The Sunnah, Sunan Abu Dawud, Vol. 5). 

and, 

Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (RA) narrated that Rasool-Allah (PBUH) said: “Do not write down anything from me. And he/she who wrote anything from me except the Qur’an, should efface (wipe off, rub) that and convey my statements (ahadith), for there is no harm in narrating from me (ahadith), and he/she who attributed any falsehood to me, let him/her assume his/her abode in Hell-Fire.”

 (Hadith No. 7510 (3004), Book of Asceticism & Heart Softening Reports, Sahih Muslim, Vol. 7). 

Clear! 

So, now let us analyze first of all Eid Milad-un-Nabi in the context of these Aayahs and Ahadith.  

There is no information in The Holy Qur’an about celebration of this day. Neither there is any hadith to confirm this day’s celebrations. Had Rasool-Allah (PBUH) celebrated it or asked others to celebrate this day, there must have been a hadith for that. But there is no such information. 

And as Qur’an says that Allah has perfected our religion for us, there is nothing which has been left which could have been told to us and has not been told. Therefore, celebration of Eid Milad-un-Nabi is a Bida’a.  

Bida’a is anything which is added and attributed to Islamic culture/traditions without any proof either from Qur’an and/or Ahadith. Islam’s stand about Bida’a can be clearly understood by two Ahadith given above. 

However, if some groups of people are still hooked on to their belief of celebrating Eid Milad-un-Nabi (unfortunately, majority in our Indian sub-continent believe this; it includes Pakistan, India, Bangladesh), then it is like a stubbornness. Islam is against disputes among us. There should not be any dispute among the Muslims, but in case there is a dispute on anything, then there is a solution in Qur’an for such a situation. Allah (SWT) says inHoly Qur’an: 

فَإِنْ تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِنْ كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ ذَلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلاً

“(And) if you differ in anything amongst yourselves, refer it to Allah & His Rasool (PBUH), if you believe in Allah & in the Last Day. That is better and more suitable for final determination”.

(Aayah No. 59, Surah An-Nisa’, Chapter No. 4, Holy Qur’an). 

Based on this, we revert back this issue to Allah (Qur’an is Allah’s word) and Rasool-Allah, PBUH (Ahadith are Rasool’s words/sayings); and we find no such thing which proves about the celebrations.  

Now it is my turn to ask: Are the celebrators (I mean who talk in favour of celebrations of Eid Milad-un-Nabi and other functions) trying to say that their celebrations are valid even if they are not being covered by Islam? Then it will be a clear refusal/denial to Aayah No. 3 of Surah Al-Ma’idah in Holy Qur’an, discussed above, thereby, implying that the religion (Islam) preached by Rasool-Allah (PBUH) to his Ummah is incomplete. Can we dare to put ourselves in such a situation where we become a part of such falsehood? May Allah have mercy on all of us. May Allah have mercy on all of us. May Allah have mercy on all of us…..Ameen. 

My dear brothers, sisters & friends, there are only two Eids prescribed for celebrations in Islam: Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha. Apart from these, other two important functions about which we get evidences in Islamic literature are Waleema & Aqeeqa, and that is all. 

This explanation is not only limited to Eid Milad-un-Nabi, but it applies to other celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries etc. All are Bida’a. And even more condemnable are newly introduced celebrations like Valentine’s Day, Women’s day, Men’s day, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day etc. This all is against Islamic culture. How can we forget to do Aqeeqa of our kids, but very proudly celebrate birthdays and other anniversaries? Tell me please. Do we know that the culture of fixing candles (lit with fire) on cakes and singing songs is not an Islamic act? This act is neither attributed to Ahle-kitaab i.e. The Christians or The Jews. It has been adopted from some older races of non-believers, who used to lit fire, put on food and celebrate. What are we doing? Let us ask ourselves sincerely. 

We spend millions on these celebrations. Sometimes these celebrations lead to violence too, and at times bloodshed. Islam never supports anything which promotes violence and bloodshed. Moreover, it gives a wrong impression about our religion to others and they get a chance to point fingers at us. Don’t we have sense? Don’t we see all this? Rasool-Allah (PBUH) used to say: “Don’t be an Imma’a (Imma’a means a person who blindly follows others, without using his/her sense)”. And see, majority of Muslims in our sub-continent are like that. We keep following whatever our forefathers and society has been following for ages, without asking whether it is true, whether it should be followed or not.  

Also tell me, what do we achieve or do by observing death anniversaries of our dead relatives? It again is a Bida’a. We should know that each of us take with us our deeds to our lives hereafter. Apart from this, after death only 3 things support the person in Aakhrah. If you ask, what reward goes to a man (or a woman) after his/her death (?), the answer will be given by following hadith. 

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (RA) that Rasool-Allah (PBUH) said, “When a man (or a woman) dies, all his/her good deeds come to an end, except three: a) Ongoing charity done by the deceased (Sadaqa-e-Jaariya)…b) Beneficial knowledge of the deceased that will keep on helping the others.…..and third….c) Righteous son/daughter who will pray for him/her (the deceased).”

 (Hadith No. 4223 (1631), Book of Wills, Sahih Muslim, Vol. 4). 

Having read the hadith written above, how can we justify the concept of making rituals, do recitations of Qur’an for the dead and then say “We send the reward of this to the dead….”Please, let us not make mockery of our religion. 

However, Remembrance is important. But again the first and biggest haq of Remembrance belongs to Allah. So, Remember Allah. How to remember Allah? Simple….do zikr of Allah, study Qur’an and understand it, do each and every thing in life and try to spend our lives according to will Allah, spread the message of Allah.  

After that comes Rasool-Allah (PBUH). It is good to remember the day for the love of our beloved prophet. But what is the best way to remember Rasool-Allah? Live your life on his footsteps…that is the best thing. This is the haq of love for Rasool-Allah (PBUH). Also, do nawafil ibadah on the day, if you wish to do so. Do acts of charity, whichever you can. All this will only increase your account of hasanaat with Allah (SWT). But all this is voluntary (nawafil).  

No obligatory act is prescribed on us, except two:  

The first and foremost, as I mentioned earlier, is to lead our lives on footsteps of Rasool-Allah (PBUH), do ita’at of Rasool-Allah (PBUH). This isclearly mentioned inAayah No. 1 of Surah Al-Anfal (Chapter No. 8)of Holy Qur’an(I have referred to this aayah above in the article already).  

The second obligatory act on us for Rasool-Allah (PBUH), as prescribed in Holy Qur’an is explained in Aayah No. 56, Surah Al-Ahzab (Chapter No. 33): 

 إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيماً

“Allah sends His salat (graces, blessings, honours etc.) on Rasool-Allah (PBUH) and so also His angels. O’ who you believe! Send your salat (salam) to him and you should greet him (Rasool-Allah, PBUH) with Islamic way of greeting i.e. As-salam alaikum.”

This shows the obligation on every muslim to send salam to Rasool-Allah (PBUH). Again, this does not mean to do this by creating songs of salaam and start singing songs (naatein, qawwalis etc.) in honour of Rasool-Allah (PBUH), like it is done in our countries, Astaghfirullah. Greet him simply by saying As-salam alaikum warahmatullah and/or reciting Durood, this is very important. 

After giving due haq to Allah’s remembrance and Rasool-Allah’s remembrance, we can remember our near & dear ones. There is no harm in making the occasions as a happy time for you and your family. Exchange gifts with each other. Husband may give gift to his wife and children and vice versa. Children can give gifts to parents as well. Eat together; indulge in nice works; do whatever, in limits (ordained on us by Allah) you can. Remember, giving and taking gifts has been recommended by Rasool-Allah (PBUH). It contributes to strengthening bonds of relationships and develops love among us. There are several ahadith to support this. Subhan-Allah, Islam has solution to everything. It is just a matter of a step to be taken from our side towards seeking that solution. But do not introduce traditions which have no relation with Islam and represent religions of disbelievers. 

I pray to Allah that we all Muslims walk on straight path of Islam, following Sunnah ways of our beloved prophet (PBUH), free from all bida’a. 

And Allah knows best. 

May Allah forgive me if I am wrong and guide us to the right path…Ameen. 

سُبْحَانَ رَبِّكَ رَبِّ الْعِزَّةِ عَمَّا يَصِفُون َ ; وَسَلامٌ عَلَى الْمُرْسَلِينَ ; وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّالْعَالَمِينَ.

    May Allah (SWT) reward you for your good work, and shows us right path to follow as per Quran and Ahadith.
    May Allah (SWT) forgive us for all our wrongdoings. Ameen 

  4. Jazakallah for clarifying this point.
    I have a question re; praying for the deceased.
    Im aware of the 3 points you’ve made but could shine some light on the following,
    1- Can u make dua for a deceased( ie; after namaz) does this benefit them? Even if there not related.
    2- When there are gatherings for eg after janazah, people read Quran etc. What is the protocol? How many days should it go on for?
    Any other information will also be helpful because I think it is my duty as a Muslim to be aware of the etiquettes and how to follow them. We have many cultural ways of our elders that are passed down to the younger generation instead of the correct way, which just leads to confusion. Jzk

    • Salam alaikum. Thanks for writing. Response to your queries have been sent to your email address. Please go through it, and revert back to us if some doubts persist.
      Jazak Allah.

    I request see, listen and try to understand this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwd-CSiX8Kk

    • Wa-alaikum As-Salam warahmatallah,

      Dear brother, you consider this speech correct? The translations of verses of Qur’an have been explained incorrectly. The connection of Salat with celebrations related to different Messengers is baseless. You believe in such dramatic lectures aimed at raising emotions of common man, and surprisingly reject the authentic references quoted in the article here!

      There is nothing more to say about this.

      Jazak Allah.

  6. Dear Sir/Madam,

    Is celebrating Silver Jubilee (25 Years Marriage Anniversary) allowed in Islam?

    Regards,

    Fahad Sadeq

    • As Salam alaikum warahmatallah brother,

      Islam is not against celebrations. But we should be cautious about what celebrations are we indulging into. We should not celebrate any occassion as an Islamic celebration which is not authenticated by Qur’an and/or SUnnah. We should also not celebrate any thing which falls under traditions of non-muslims. We should not do any act of celebration which contradicts the teachings of Islam.

      Celebrations of anniversaries etc. is directly linked to western culture which has no connection with Muslims/Islam. Therefore, as per my view, we should stay away from all such useless so-called celebrations which have been created just to keep majority away from real serious issues and mislead the common man. However, mere remembrance of anniversary won’t do any harm.

      And Allah knows best.

      • Asslmuaaleikum brother/sister :) I am having a little doubt abt marriage.. Frm my childhood i have been told that a saiyed girl should only marry a saiyed guy otherwise she ‘ll go to hell.. I mean is this really true? Islma has always taught people about equality and all and nw my saiyed family memebers all saying all these stuff… What if The guy is saiyed and he dnt even prat 5 times a day? -_- and on the other hand a guy who isn’t a sayed and prays, have a kind heart.. Still do I have to marry that sayed guy? I mean this is really difficult for me to accept.. Idk but this is really confusing… please help:) Jazakallah khair

        • Wa alaikum As Salam Warahmatallah sister,

          This is absolutely wrong. Allah has created all humans equal in His view. He shall judge us based on our Iman, our deeds, our truthfulness, our patience and our Taqwa. Allah doesn’t judge people on the criterion whetehr they are Sayyeds or Pathans or Arabs or Non-Arabs etc. Such views and ideologies belong to period of ignorance i.e. Jahiliyyah.

          Your doubts and concerns about such views tell me that you understand the matter correctly. I will request you to stick to your views and do not accept any such wrong ideologies which have no place in Islam. Also, try to teach and convince your family members about their wrongdoing. Question them about the basis of their belief. Ask them to show references from Qur’an and/or Sunnah/Ahadith to support their view.

          If you need any further clarification on this matter, please feel free to write to us.

          Jazak Allah.

  7. If yes, is it allowed to celebrate with the outsiders or only with the family members?

  8. Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    Aslam o alaikum,
    Brother my question is similar to a brother asked at top of your conversation.
    You said you should stay away from any of none Muslims festivals and at end of your answer you said “remembrance of anniversary won’t do any haram” how can you make two statement can you clear that for me please.
    And also can you tell me please are we allowed to go in to Hindus festival any kind of festival ?

    • Wa alaikum As Salam warahmatallah,

      I am not able to understand what is confusing you. It is very clear that we should not celebrate fetsivals/occassions which are not authenticated by Sunnah. When I say that remembrance won’t do harm, then I mean that if you remember that (for example) 30 October is your birthdate then it is no harm in that. Harm starts when you start arranging cakes, parties, lighting candles on cakes, cutting the cakes and singing the songs…. all this relates to Non-Muslim traditions and this is what we should stay away from. By remembrance I mean that we can limit ourselves to our words by saying that it is someones birthday that day and may be even blessing his/her.. that’s it.

      Going to any Hindu festivals, when invited by our Hindu colleagues, shall be OK only up to the extent when we do not indulge in their festivals open-heartedly. Limiting it to an invitation should be fine as the Prophet (PBUH) has recommended us not to reject invitiations. Further, we can use such invitations to spread the word of Allah. But in no case should we present ourselves as a part of their celebrations. And Allah knows best.

      I hope this clarifies your doubt.

  9. Asslm,. Bro, wud lyk your team to introduce a topic about Qurbani,. Distributing meat to people,. Some oulama are against distributing with non muslims and some say yes,. wud lyk your view from Quran and hadith,. BarakAllahoufikoum,.

    • Wa alaikum As Salam warahmatallah brother,

      As per my understanding, our first preference should be that the meat be distributed among Muslims. When we fulfill the requirements of distribution to our relatives, Muslim orphans, Muslim poors and Muslim travellers, and are still left with meat for distribtuion, then in my understanding there is no harm in distributing to Non-Muslims. But the first preference should be for Muslims. And Allah knows best.

  10. Salaams Bro
    This is a great article and I agree with what you have said. One thing I would like for you to do, if possible, is compile the ayahs they use as THEIR so-called proofs in why we should celebrate Eid-Mawlid when in reality it clearly doesn’t state it at all. I know they use Surah Yunus and Surah Al-Ahzaab as proofs for some apparent reason. Personally I don’t celebrate any festivals/birthdays except for the 2 main EIDS which is compulsory to do so.

  11. Jazakallah for clarifying this point.

    leads to confusion. Jzk

  12. Asalam o alikum

    Brother, I came up to your page when querying on this matter about milad-un-Nabi (S.A.W.)

    Now days, people have introduced some arguments (proofs) on this. Like they reference this below Quranic verse:

    ———————————————————————–
    Eisa, the son of Maryam, said, “O Allah, O our Lord! Send down to us a table spread from heaven, so that it may become a day of celebration for us – for our former and latter people – and a sign from You; and give us sustenance – and You are the Best Provider Of Sustenance.” [Surah Al-Ma’idah, Verse 114]
    ———————————————————————–

    and say that this is why we rejoice and celebrate.

    I tried to copy the arabic here but it did not.

    More over, I came to hear some ahadith they introduced, with no reference, but they were so firm on them that it looked like they have some proof.

    ———————————————————————–
    1) They say “Hazrat Abu Bakar R.A. said: Any one celebrating milad will be my companion in heaven”
    2) They say “Hazrat Ali R.A. said: Who ever celebrates milad will die on kalma and will be rewarded heaven without any questioning”
    ———————————————————————–

    there were more but I dont remember, and they did not provide any reference.

    Brother, this is a very serious matter, if there are no such things in hadith, then people standing on such verses and spreading them should be replied with. They are spreading chaos in an already disturbed society. And if they are right, then it should be clarified as well and we all Muslims should agree to one thing and stop arguments.

    Jazakallah brother

    • Wa alaikum Salam warahmatallah,

      The verse quoted by you (No. 114 of Surah Al-Ma’idah) has got no connection with Eid Milad-un-Nabi. This verse is about when disciples of Isa (AS) requested this table as they were poor and deprived. So they asked Isa (AS) to supplicate to Allah to send a table of food down to them so that they can eat from it every day and thus be able to perform acts of worship more and easily. This table of food is called “Ma’idah” (hence the name of the chapter). And this day was to be taken by them as a day of celebration.

      This is as per Tafsir Ibn Kathir. Nowhere can it be connected to Eid Milad-un-Nabi.

      Regarding the two ahadith quoted by you, one should not accept any hadith without a reference. I have not come across such ahadith. If someone quotes these ahadith, please let him/her provide a reference (Book name, number, chapter number, hadith number etc.), otherwise It can’t be accepted.

      If the celebration was to be ordained, the Prophet (PBUH) would have done it or allowed/asked his companions to do it during his lifetime also. But we do not find any such example.

      And Allah knows best.

  13. Assalamualikum , well i have a Question, some say we cannot celebrate our birthday , so milad un nabi is a celebration of prophets birthday? i’m extrmely sorry if anthning is wrong in what i ask.

    • Wa alaikum Salam warahmatallah,

      Do not worry; you are free and have the right to ask almost any question if your intention is clean.

      Sister, can you clarify your question a bit more; I could not get correct message as to what exactly you want to ask.

      Jazak Allah.

  14. Jazakallah for your kind explanation about the Quranic Ayah

    As per the ahadith, I also do not accept them myself as there is no reference.

    My point was that, a normal person does not know what a reference means and why it is important. They dont even bother to see the context of the quranic ayahs or ahadith. Its like, someone on loudspeaker of a mosque said it so it is considered valid. Isnt their a forum or a movement against these propagandas? Believe me its ruining our entire next generation. Think of it as, It is very easy to celebrate and goto heaven instead of worship Allah, do good deeds, avoid the prohibited, and then get questioned and then goto heaven or hell accordingly. So every one takes the easy path, like the non-muslims do. And this is getting worst and worst every year. We have to do something….

  15. Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahe wa baraqatuhu ! JazakALLAH !

    • Salam alaikum,

      1. Yes you can make dua-e-maghfirah for the deceased even after their burial and their Salat-al-Janazah even if they are not related to you. Regarding benefit of dua for the deceased, it is told to us by the Prophet (PBUH) that dua for deceased by his/her children is accepted for sure, Bi-izn-Allah. As far as dua for deceased who are not related to us, it is recommended to make dua-e-maghfirah for them, although acceptance of it is subject to Allah’s discretion. And Allah kniows best.
      2. Gatherings for condolence on the death of a Muslim should not last for more than 3 days.

      Please go through a separate article titled “Funeral Prayers (Salat-al-Janazah or Salat-al-Mayyat)” which is available at this website. That shall be helpful for you Insha’Allah.

      Jazak Allah.

      Jazak Allah.

  19. Great article. I always argued, introducing ‘celebration’ other than two major Eids and weekly Juma’a is a bida’a. What the Miludists are doing is changing the first premise, from La Ilaha Illahllah to “Everything is Ilah unless specifically forbidden’.

  20. Assalam Aleykum warahmatuLlah wa Barakatuh
    please help out here
    1.paying a visit to the deceased well known muslims{sheikh} in a certain occassion {ziaratul quboor}…is it allowed in our religion??

  21. Assalamu alaikum, could you please add my email into your list so that I can get informed of the article. May Allah help us.

    • Wa alaikum As Salam warahmatallah,

      Your email address has been added to our mailing list. Inshallah from now onwards you shall be receiving new articles in your email inbox too.

      Jazak Allah.

  22. I just want to ask that is there any hadith that proves,Hazrat Muhammad saw fast every monday for His birthday.someone told me but i could’nt find it.

    • Salam alaikum,

      Chapters in books of ahadith related to nawafil fasting tell us about so many reports about voluntary fasts of teh Prophet (PBUH). Many ahadith tell us that he used to fast on 15, 16 & 17 of every month. Other ahadith tell us that he used to fast three days every month. Some ahadith tell us that he used to fast Mondays, & Thursdays.

      The ahadith about fasting on Mondays and Thursdays are reported in Sunan Abu Dawud, Jami’ At-Tirmidhi and Sunan Ibn Majah. All these books clearly tell us that the reason given by the Prophet (PBUH) for fasting on Mondays (& Thursdays) was that “deeds are presented on Monday & Thursday (before Allah) and Allah forgives people on these days. He didn’t give the reason for fasting that it was due to his birthday. Therefore, it is wrong to say so that fasting on Monday is recommended by the Prophet (PBUH) due to his birthday.

      And Allah knows best.
