Shaytan cried loudly on birth of the Holy Prophet (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassallam)

And Indeed everyone rejoices except for Shaytan and his counterparts, because:
أن إبليس رن أربع رنات حين لعن وحين أهبط وحين ولد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم وحين أنزلت الفاتحة

Iblis cried loudly four times, first when Allah declared him as cursed, second when he was thrown out, Third When Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam) was born and fourth when Surah Fatiha was revealed 
[Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah wan Nihayah, Volume 2, Page No. 166]

“In his book on Jana'iz (Funerals, Hadith #1298), Imam Bukhari named an entire chapter “Dying on Monday.” In it there is the hadith of Aisha (RadiAllahu Anha) relating her father’s (Abu Bakr as-Siddiq -RadiAllahu Anhu ) Question: 

“On which day did the Prophet die?” 
She replied: “Monday.” He asked: “What day are we today?” 
She said, “O my father, this is Monday.”
Then he raised his hands and said: “I beg you, O Allah, to let me die on Monday in order to coincide with the Prophet’s day of passing.”

Imam Qastallani continues, “Why did Abu Bakr (RadiAllahu Anhu) ask for his death to be on Monday? So that his death would coincide with the day of the Prophet’s passing, in order to receive the blessing of that day… Does anyone object to Abu Bakr’s asking to pass away on that day for the sake of blessing?

Then why are people objecting to celebrating or emphasizing the day of the Prophet’s birth (Mawlid un Nabi) in order to get blessing ?”

Bismillah'hir Rahman'nir Raheem 

“We are lowered by awe to honour this Sandal.
And whenever we lower before it we are raised.
So place it on the highest shelf!
For indeed in reality it is a crown, though its image is a sandal.”

~ Imam Yusuf al-Nabahani Rahmatullāhi Alayh ~

Oh Moon, never mind if I tell you the truth,

Sometimes you are dim,

Sometimes you are bright,

But your brightness is not equal too an atom of

the dust from the foot of the Prophet (SalAllahu ‘Alayhi wa 'Aalihi wassallam)

Imam al Shihab al Qastallani Rahmatullahi alayh


Al Qastalani (al Bukhari’s commentator) in his book ‘Al mawahib al ladunniya’ (1-148) said, “May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala have mercy on the one who turns the nights of the month of the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's birth into festivities in order to increase the suffering of those whose hearts are filled with disease and sickness." 

Spending on the celebration of Mawlid Shareef

Hadrat Sayyiduna Hasan Basri (Radi Allahu Ta’ala Anhu) said,

قال حسن البصري رضي الله تعالی عنه وددت لو کان لی مثل جبل احد ذھبا فانفقته علی قراءة مولد النبي صلی الله علیه وسلم

“I would like to have gold equivalent to the Mountain of Uhud so that I should be able to spend it on the Mawlid Sharif of the Holy Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihi wa Aalihi wa Sallam).” [An-Ne’mat al-Kubra, Page 6, Published by Hakikat Kitabevi, Istanbul, Turkey]
Rabbi'ul Awwal

The month of #Rabi al-Awwal is the month in which al-Nūr (Light), al-Burhān (clear proof of Allah), al-Ni’mat al-Kubra (the biggest blessing), al-Ihsān al-‘Azīm (the greatest favour), Our Master, Sayyiduna Muhammad ﷺ was born.

A month when the lovers rejoice and remember the Prophet ﷺ arrival and events building up to and the miracles of their blessed birth.

Send as many salutations on the #Prophet ﷺ as you can in the blessed month.

It is through the Prophet ﷺ we received Islām, Imān, Qur’ān and all the other blessings of Allāh.

When the Noble Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم returned from the expedition of Tabuk in Madina, his uncle Abbas رضي الله عنه sought permission to recite some lines of poetry in his praise. He replied saying:

Recite, may your mouth remain fresh.

Thereafter sayyiduna Abbas began to recite his poetry, inside the Masjid, before the Beloved Messenger صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم and gathering of companions in which he mentioned the transition of our Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم in the loins of the previous Prophets and how he blessed them all, thereafter he said:

The day you [the Prophet] were born the sun rose
over the earth and the horizon was illumined with your nur.
So we — in that radiance and that light
and paths of guidance — can pierce through

Many scholars of Hadith quoted these lines of poetry including al-Hafiz Ibn Kathir in his Mawlid, Suyuti in Husn al-Maqsid and al-Khasais al-Kubra, Qastalani in al-Mawahib, and Ibn Hajar Asqalani in Fathul Bari commentary of Sahih Bukhari. Recorded in Khasais al-Kubra, al-Bidaya wa an-Nihaya

This historically confirms:

Mawlid upon the tongue of the blessed Sahaba (Alayhim ar-Ridwan)
Permitted by the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم without any reproach
Takes place in the presence of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم
Poetry (Na’at) in the masjid
At Masjid al-Nabawi
Witnessed by others
Birth of the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم honoured explicitly
Massively recorded and transmitted by elite Sahaba and Ulama of this Ummah.

After the death of Abu Lahab, some of his family members had a dream in which they saw him in trouble, they asked how he was treated after death. He replied, ‘I did not get any goodness after leaving you, however, I get water from my index finger because I freed my slave girl, Suwaiba, with its gesture. [#Bukhari, Vol. 1, Page 153, #Hadith 5101]

Commenting on the foregoing narration, Sayyiduna Shaykh Abdul Haq Muhaddith Dehlvi states,

“In this incident there is credible evidence for those who celebrate the birth of Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) and spend their wealth on this occasion. Abu Lahab, who was a staunch disbeliever, was also given a benefit because of rejoicing and freeing his slave girl, Suwaiba for breastfeeding, upon hearing the news of the blessed birth of the Holy Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam) now imagine, how great reward the Muslim spending his wealth whole-heartedly on this occasion will attain. However, it is necessary to avoid songs and music in Milad gatherings.”

Milad-un-Nabi (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)

The uncle of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), al-‘Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib (RA) said:“And then, when you were born, a light rose over the earth until it illuminated the horizon with its radiance. We are in that illumination and that original light and those paths of guidance and thanks to them we pierce through.”

Ibn Sayyid al-Nas narrated it with his isnad through Tabarani and Bazzar in Minah al-Madh (p. 192-193). Ibn Kathir in al-Sira al-Nabawiyya (4:51) and `Ali al-Qari in his Sharh al-Shifa` (1:364) say it is narrated by Abu Bakr al-Shafi`i and Tabarani, and cited by Ibn `Abd al-Barr in al-Isti`ab and Ibn al-Qayyim in Zad al-Ma`ad.

The light mentioned by al-‘Abbas is confirmed by the Prophet (salla allahu alayhi wa sallam) himself in the famous narration describing his own birth.

THE BIRTH OF SYEDNA YAHYA (peace be upon him)

1. This is the remembrance of the mercy of your Lord upon His bondman Zakaria. When he softly prayed to his Lord. [Surah Maryam 19:2-3]

Note that Allah has called the birth of Syedna Yahya a “mercy”, and its mentioning in the Holy Qur'an as a “remembrance”. What greater evidence would be required for the remembrance of the Holy Prophet’s (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassallam) birth?

2. “O Zakaria! We give you the glad tidings of a son whose name is Yahya (John) - before him, We have not created anyone of this name.” He submitted, “My Lord - how can I have a son whereas my wife is barren and I have reached infirmity due to old age” He (the angel) said, “So it is; your Lord says, ‘This is easy for Me - in fact I created you before this, at a time when you did not exist.’ ” [Surah Maryam 19:7-9] 

3. And peace is upon him the day he was born, and the day he will taste death, and the day he will be raised alive. [Surah Maryam 19:15]

4. And remember Zakaria, when he prayed to his Lord, “O my Lord - do not leave me alone, and You are the Best Inheritor. We therefore heard his prayer; and bestowed him Yahya, and cured his wife for him; indeed they used to hasten to perform good deeds, and pray to Us with hope and fear; and used to weep before Us. [Surah Ambiya 21:89-90]

What greater evidence would be required for the remembrance of the Holy Prophet’s (SalAllahu Alaihi Wa Aalihi Wassallam) birth?

Thursday, 02 January 2014  -  01 Rabi Al-Awaal 1435 H

Keep The Holy Month Of The Prophet (salAllahu ‘alayhi wa ‘aalihi wassallam) High…

Turn yourself, sit somewhere, take your tesbih in your hand and say to yourself, “Oh my ego, you are sitting here, fifteen minutes, twenty minutes, half an hour, one hour. Without heedlessness you are going to give salawat to that Prophet (sws).”

As much as you do that, that much you may get closer inshaAllah ar-Rahman.

Milad-un-Nabi (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)

Sayyiduna Aamina (RA) states,
ورأيت ثلاثة أعلام مضروبات علما في المشرق وعلما في المغرب وعلما على ظهر الكعبة فأخذني المخاض فولدت محمدا صلى الله عليه وسلم

“I saw that three flags are sited, One in East, One in West and the third on roof of Ka’ba Shareef and 
Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم) birth took place.”
