Series ICIS Sitting 01 Legality of Mawlid un Nabi (PBUH) in the Light of Quran and Sunnah
A misconception which is commonly associated in the minds of Muslims paticularly in the West is the legality of the celebration of Mawlid-un-Nabi (SAW) in the light of the Shariah. In the first of this four parts set, Dr. Tahir-ul-Qari has revealed remarkable evidence on the legality of celebrating the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The evidance and the arguments presented are taken directly from the Quran and Hadith. The basis of arguments presented is from the Quranic verse:
Say: In the blessings of Allah and in His mercy, in that they should rejoice; This is far better than (all that affluence and wealth) that they store up. (Surah Yunus 10, Verse 58)
Many people have the belief that it is forbidden to rejoice excessively and extravagantly, basing their belief and argument upon the verse:
‘Indeed Allah does not love those who are extravagant” (Surah al-Qasas 28, Verse 76)
Unfortunately they have been misguided by such an evaluation of this verse. This problem exists especially in the Western World due to a lack of access to original classical Arabic sources on the subject. This lecture furnishes a new dimension regarding the legality of celebrating the birth of the Holy Prophet (SAW). The meaning, implication and significance of the word ‘Fadhl’ which is crucial to this discussion explained in detail in the light of the Quran and authentic traditions.
This lecture clarifies and resolves the general misconceptions which are connected and associated with Mawlid-un-Nabi (SAW) in every simple yet authoritative way.
