DescriptionIzhar al-Surur li Mawlid al-Nur,

''On Assembling to Celebrate and Rejoice over the Birth of the Greatest Messenger, may Allah Bless him and Grant him peace, with a Discussion of It's Legal Proofs and the Arguments of Those who Forbid It.''

This new work contains a combination of ahadith and Ayahs of the Qur'an in both English and Arabic.


Love for Allah and His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is one of the central most acts of worship that spring from the heart. It assumes an immemsely high rank in the religion. It is the sustenance of the hearts, the succor of the spirits, the coolness of the eyes, the delight of the souls, the light of the intellects, and the fortification of the inward. Love for Allah and His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is life, and those are deprived of it are counted among the dead; it is light, and those who are bereft of it drift aimlessly in the oceans of darkness; it is healing, and those who lack it suffer untold maladies; and it is delight, and those who fail to acquire it live lives of stress, pain, disquietude and agitation.

To further deepen our love and connection with the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, many hadith masters and scholars considered it worthwhile to take every opportunity - after fulfilling one's obligations and the Sunna - to make mention of Allah and His Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. This includes the recommended practice of gathering to celebrate the birth of the Messenger, may Allah bless him and grant him peace. Such celebration ''entails gathering with people, reading a portion of the Qur'an, citing the narrations about the precursors to the Prophet's mission and the wondrous signs that took place during his birth, and then eating a bit of food and leaving'' - nothing more, and without this manner of gathering being considered leagally required in the shari'ah.

                ''The Prophetic hadith clarifies that the sanctity of a believer is
                 greater than the sanctity of the ennobled Ka'ba, there is no doubt
                 that the sanctity of our Master the Messenger of Allah,
salla Allahu
                 ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam
, is greater than the Ka'ba
and nobler than
                 it and more esteemed in the sight of Allah Most High,
for he is the
                 Master of the Creation and the Beloved of the Real
(Habib al-Haqq)
                 salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam
