“Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect”. Alahzab 56
“Of the favor and mercy of Allah let them rejoice” (Yunus 58).
Rabbial Awal marks the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad, known as Milad An-Nabi. Although not universally recognized or celebrated, this is a time when many Muslims reflect on the lives and example of the Prophet, his family, and his early followers.
A number of Islamic scholars have given their approval for the observance of Mawlid. They cite hadith where Muhammad recommended fasting on Mondays, as that was the day he was born and also the day prophecy descended on him. They suggest that fasting on Mondays is also a way of commemorating Muhammad’s birthday. However, there is division among them on the lawfulness of the methods of the celebrations. Most accept that it is praiseworthy as long as it is not against sharia (i.e. inappropriate mingling of the sexes, consuming forbidden food or drink such as alcohol, playing music etc).
However if care is taken to avoid all evils and to follow the Shariah carefully, then a meeting organized to remember the Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, with the sole purpose of seeking Allah’s pleasure, will Insha-Allah be a blessed event. And Allah knows best.
Expressing happiness and celebrating the Prophet on his birthday causes even unbelievers, by Allah’s favor and mercy, to gain some benefit. This is mentioned in sahih Bukhari. Bukhari said in his hadith that every Monday, Abu Lahab in his grave is released from punishment because he freed his handmaid Thuwayba when she brought him the news of the Prophet’s birth
