He was a pious, brave, just, generous, knowledgeable ruler & defender of Islam. He invited many Muslims including the scholars of: 1. Hadeeth, 2. Tafseer, 3. Fiqh and 4. Sincere true Sufis and celebrated the Mawlid. alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 5 What did great Scholars Say?

Prophet Muhammad fasted the 10th of Muharram after he emigrated to Madinah. He found that the Jews commemorate every year the day Allah saved Prophet Moosa and his followers from Pharaoh. It was revealed to the Prophet what the Jews said was true, so the Prophet told them, as alBukhariyy narrated: That is, "We are more deserving of Moosa than you" and the Prophet ordered the Muslims to fast specifically the 9th and 10th of Muharram as optional days. alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 9 Did the Prophet celebrate the Mawlid. The Mawlid did not occur during the time of the Prophet, peace on him, but the Prophet did not say that the Mawlid is unlawful. According to the laws of Islam, it is something innovated. Moreover, the Mawlid is a good innovation. alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 10 What is an Innovation (Bid^ah)? An innovation is something new that did not occur previous to the advent of the innovation. Ahlussunnah agreed that some innovations are lawful (good) and some of them are unlawful (bad). They agreed that not every innovation is unlawful, as Shafi^iy, Nawawiy & Ibn Hajar said. alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 11 Allah praised the good innovation in surat alHadeed 27: al-Quran praised the Muslim followers of Prophet `Isa who had innovated Rahbaneeyyatan Ibtada^ooha, which Allah did not make it incumbent on them. Nevertheless, they did it to acquire Allahs blessings. Rahbaneeyyah is to abstain from fulfilling ones desires including marriage. Those followers built simple houses from clay away from the people and devoted themselves to worshipping Allah.. alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 12 Good and Bad innovations: The Prophet distinguished between the good and the bad innovation. He said, as narrated by Muslim: . alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 13 This hadith means that: the one who innovates a good innovation acquires its reward and the reward similar to the rewards of those who follow him, but their rewards are not diminished. And the one who innovates a bad innovation acquires its sin and the sin similar to the sins of those who follow him, but their sins are not diminished alsunna.org Muhammad, your Love brings us together Slide 14 Mawlid is Praising Allah & His Prophet All honest Muslims are thankful to Allah for the blessings of Islam and for being among the followers of Muhammad. In Surat Al ^Imran, Ayah 31, Allah said: ( ) which means [If you love Allah, then follow the Prophet, and Allah will accept and reward you.] It is fitting to honor the Prophet.
