Recent discussions within the Muslim community revolve around the celebration of Eid Milad-ul-Nabi, Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) birthday. This blog aims to illuminate the religious stance on this celebration and its alignment with Islamic teachings. We’ll explore its historical context and fundamental principles to bring clarity to this topic.
Question 2:Can we celebrate Eid Milad according to Islamic Sharia?
Understanding the Religious Stance
Eid Milad-ul-Nabi does not find its origins in Shariah Mutahira (purified Islamic law) and is viewed as an innovation. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) explicitly rejected introducing new elements into the religion. Historical records and authentic Hadiths confirm that the Prophet never celebrated his own birthday, nor did he decree it for his followers.
Absence in the Time of the Prophet and Companions
Historical evidence from the time of Prophet Muhammad and his companions, the Sahabah, does not support the celebration of Eid Milad-ul-Nabi, despite their deep love for the Sunnah and the Islamic Shari’ah. The Caliphs and all the Companions, esteemed scholars of the Sunnah, never arranged or participated in such celebrations. This underscores that Eid Milad-ul-Nabi is not in line with the Muhammadan Sharia.
The Power of Authenticity: Following the Sunnah
Authenticity holds immense significance in Islamic practices. If celebrating Eid Milad-ul-Nabi were a part of Islamic tradition, Prophet Muhammad or his Companions would have initiated and encouraged it. As devoted followers of the Sunnah and believers in the commands and prohibitions of Islam, it’s vital to adhere to what has been authentically passed down.
A Prayer for Unity and Guidance
In conclusion, we call upon Allah Almighty and our fellow Muslims as witnesses, affirming our commitment to the true teachings of Islam. We aim for unity, steadfastness in our faith, and protection from deviating from the pure Sharia. Let us strive to follow the authentic Sunnah and respect the commands of our religion, seeking Allah’s guidance in all matters.
