Excerpt Book Description :
Have you ever wondered : What do the Imams and Scholars of mainstream Islam say about the permissibility of commemorating the Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's, birthday (mawlid)? What about the view of a handful of modern ''Salafi'' scholars like Albani, Bin Baz, al-Jazairi, Mashhur Salman, Uthaymin and their followers who forbid it on the grounds that it is an innovation? Read the evidence and then decide for yourself.
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and Peace and Blessings upon His Prophet and Messenger Muhammad, his family and all his companions. In Islam there are two festivals (Eid - Id ) : Id al-Adha
and Id al-Fitr
. Other commemorations like that of the Beloved Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's,
), are neither obligatory nor forbidden. (Although many reason it should be compulsory). However, we have come to a time in which there is much complaining about the remembrance of the Beloved of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's,
Birthday. These objections stem from the ''Salafi
type) movements whose followers search for anything that their scholars might consider doubtful and use it as an excuse to mock and denigrate the faith of other Muslims.
To commemorate the Beloved Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's,
birthday is to celebrate Islam because the Beloved of Allah, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam
, is the symbol of Islam. This book presents the facts and proofs relating to the commemoration of the Beloved Prophet's Birthday (mawlid
) according to the Qur'an, the Sunnah
(tradition), and the scholars of Islam ... ''
This valuable book also goes into extensive detail about visting (ziyara
) the Beloved Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's
, grave in Madina t'ul Munnawara, and provides comprehensive proof of the Beloved Prophet, Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam's
