Query: Is it permissible to celebrate the Meelad of the
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)?
Verdict: It is totally permissible to celebrate the
Meelad of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
Allama Muhadith Ibn Jauzi (radi Allahu anhu) states,
“Whoso ever shows happiness on the Meelad of the
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), then this
happiness will become a veil and covering for him
from the fire of Jahanum.”
Imam Qistalaani (radi Allahu anhu) the commentator
of Bukhari Shareef, says, “And in the blessed month of
the Birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam), the Ahle Islam have always
celebrated Meelad Shareef and have generously
cooked food and gave invitations. On this night, they
would give all types of Sadqa and Kheyraat and they
would show their happiness and love and they would
anxiously take part in any good deeds and they have
alwaysbeen making grand arrangements for the
reading of the Meelad Shareef. It is for this reason
that the grace and blessings of Almighty Allah is
received. From the specialities of Meelad shareef, it
has been noticed that the year in which the Meelad
Shareef is read, that year becomes a year of
protection and preservation for the Muslims and by
having Meelad Shareef, the ambitions of the heart are
fulfilled. The great mercy of Almighty Allah is upon
that person who has made the night of Meelad
shareef, the night of happiness and Eid.” (And Allah
Knows Best)
