Have you ever wondered: What do the eminent scholars of Islām have to say about the commemoration of the Prophet’s birthday (Mawlid
), may blessings & peace be upon him
? Is the modern controversy regarding this subject really authentic?'The Elite Stand in Honour of the Chosen One
' by Imām Ahmad Ridā Khān, may Allāh have mercy on him
is a treatise that emphatically answers these questions by elaborating
on the favourable dispensation accorded to this practice by over a
thousand years of Islāmic scholarship.
The celebrated author provides detailed evidence on the permissibility and benefit of Mawlid
and Standing in Honour of the Prophet
) from authentic books of Islāmic jurisprudence (Fiqh
). Multiple legal edicts (Fatāwā
) of mainstream Imāms
and scholars are also used in support of this stance.
In recent times, some have censured these meritorious acts simply because the Companions and their Successors (Tabi’īn
) never celebrated the Prophet’s birthday, may blessings & peace be upon him
In a masterful demonstration of scholarship, the author refutes this
position of the critics using their own evidence and logic.
