Series ICIS Sitting 02 Legality of Mawlid un Nabi (PBUH) in the Light of Quranic Interpretation
This is part two of the four part set entitled Mawlid-un-Nabi (SAW). Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri further elaborate on the word ‘Fadhl’ and also the word ‘Rahmah’ from Surah Yunus 10, Verse 58, in the light of Quranic Tafasir. The Point to be taken into consideration is that although many scholars have discussed this topic in various dimensions, it has never been taken from the prespective of Quranic Tafasir. This discussion gives a total new dimension to the subject which has been explored over the past fourteen hundred years. Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri begins with a detailed look at the Quranic Tafasir based upon Verse 4 of Surah Jumu’ah and quoting the likes of Imam-ul-Mufassireen Abdullah Ibn Abbas, Imam Jalal-ud-Din Sayuti, Imam Nasafi, Allama Allusi and many other classical scholars.
He then analyses common questions on the subject, such as: what are the basic constituent elements in Mawlid celebrations and what is the verdict on such actions in Islam according to traditional scholars? Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri begins by discussing two of the elements, one of which is being the permissibility of al-Madih an-Nabawiyyah, ‘Naat’ and singing praise of the Holy Prophet (SAW) and second being the permissibility of sending salutations to Holy Prophet (SAW). In his discussion regarding the permissibility of singing poems of praise for the Holy Prophet (SAW), he gives the names of thirty four companions (RA) who used to sing poems in praise of the Holy Prophet (SAW) which include the likes of four rightly guided Caliphs, Sayyedina Abbas bin Abdul Muttalib (RA), Sayyedina Fatimah (RA), Sayyedina Ka’ab bin Malik (RA), Sayyedina Abdullah bin Rawaha (RA) etc. Furthermore, the Prophet (SAW) himself used to sing his own Madih. Finishing off he closes his discussion by mentioning the significance and essence of sending Salaam (peace) to the Prophet (SAW) in the light of the Holy Quran and authentic traditions. The acts which are performed with in Mawlid celebrations are fully proven and supported directly from the Holy Quran and authentic traditions.
