Ruling on celebrating the Mawlid in Rabiĺ’ as a tribute to the Prophet.

Fatwas > Rabi` Al-Awwal Fatwas > Ruling on celebrating the Mawlid in Rabi‘ I as a tribute to the Prophet

Q 1: What is the ruling on celebrating the Mawlid (the Prophet’s birthday) in Rabi‘ Al-Awwal as a tribute to the Prophet (peace be upon him)?

A: Paying tribute to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and respecting him should be expressed by belief in all that was revealed to him from Allah; following his Shari‘ah (Islamic law) in beliefs, words, deeds and manners; and by shunning Bid‘ah (innovation in religion). Among the newly-invented practices introduced into the religion is celebrating the Mawlid.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!

Quran 38:75-77

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In naam van Allah, de Barmhartige, de Genadevolle.

He said, “O Satan, what prevented you from prostrating before what I created with My Own hands? Are you too proud, or were you one of the exalted?” He said, “I am better than he; You created me from fire, and You created him from clay.” He said, “Then get out of here! You are an outcast!

“Purity is half of faith”

On the authority of Abu Malik Al-Harith bin Asim Al-Ashari said that the messenger of Allah said: “Purity is half of faith. alhamdu-lillah [Praise be to Allah] fills the scales, and subhana-Allah [How far is Allah from every imperfection] and alhamdu-lillah [Praise be to Allah] fill that which is between heaven and earth. Prayer is light; charity is a proof; patience is illumination; and the Quran is an argument for or against you. Everyone starts his day and is a vendor of his soul, either freeing it or bringing about its ruin.”

Quran 7:27

O Children of Adam! Do not let Satan seduce you, as he drove your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their garments, to show them their nakedness. He sees you, him and his clan, from where you cannot see them. We have made the devils friends of those who do not believe.
[Quran 7:27]


  1. .Every journey requires provisions, so let piety be your provision in the journey from the life in this world to the Hereafter.
    [Islamic Quote]
  2. When the Quran is recited, listen to it, and pay attention, so that you may experience mercy.
    [Quran %7:204]
  3.  Reading Soorat al-Mulk protects one from the torment of the grave

    Reading Surat al-Mulk protects a Muslim from the trials of the grave, but how often does one have to read it? Once a day or more?.

    Published Date: 2010-04-20
    Praise be to Allaah.  It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A soorah from the Qur’aan containing thirty verses will intercede for a man so that he will be forgiven. It is the soorah Tabaarak Alathi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk].”

    Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 2891; Abu Dawood, 1400; Ibn Maajah, 3786.

    Al-Tirmidhi said, this is a hasan hadeeth. It was classed as saheeh by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah in Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, 22/277, and by Shaykh al-Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah, 3053.

    What is meant is that a person should read it every night, act in accordance with the rulings contained in it, and believe in the information mentioned in it.

    It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood said: Whoever reads Tabaarak allaahi bi yadihi’l-mulk [i.e., Soorat al-Mulk] every night, Allaah will protect him from the torment of the grave. At the time of the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) we used to call it al-maani’ah (that which protects). In the Book of Allaah it is a soorah which, whoever recites it every night has done very well.

    Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 6/179; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Targheeb wa’l-Tarheeb, 1475.

    The scholars of the Standing Committee said:

    One this basis there is the hope that whoever believes in this soorah and reads it regularly, seeking the pleasure of Allaah, learning the lessons contained in it and acting in accordance with the rulings contained therein, it will intercede for him [in the Hereafter].

    Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 4/334, 335

    And Allaah knows best.
