Eid Milad Un Nabi

Objection No.2 By celebrating Eid Milaat Un Nabi Suni Muslims exceed Shariah. To prove this allegation Mufti sahibs of Anti Eid Milat un Nabi Sects gave such like examples:-
1.    Reciting the Qur'an is a great act of virtue, but it is prohibited to do so while one is in ruku or sujud in prayers.
2.    Salat is one of the most important acts of worship. Yet, it is haram to perform it at sunrise or sunset.

Rebuttal:   Whether it is prohibited in Islam to celebrate and remember the birth of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). Is there any Hadith or Verse of Quran which prohibits the celebration of Eid Milat un Nabi or fasting and remembering the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) is prohibited on that particular day i.e. 12th of Rabiul Awal. The fatwa of Mufti Sahibs is conspicuously silent in this context. However, I will quote a Hadith to prove that Millat Sharif is not only permissible but also a great source of blessing of Almighty. It was the common practice of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to keep fasting on each Monday. Someone asked the reason for this practice, on which the Holy Prophet said; “Monday is my birth day.”

Celebrating anything on any day in a year is not prohibited in Islam. Then why Wahibis and Deobandis are objecting celebration of Eid Milat un Nabi on the birth day of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

C.    Mufti sahibs of Wahabi and Deobandi Sects later on usually say, “You can arrange a reading of an authentic book on Sirah or have a lecture delivered by a scholar. Doing that is not only permissible but it will bring great reward.”

Sunni Muslims do arrange such gatherings of naat sharifs and lectures from their scholars on the life of Holy Prophet (PBUH) not only in the month of Rabiul Awal but during the whole year.

Do Deobandis or Wahabis follow the instructions given by Mufti Sahbi? Do they arrange such practices e.g. arranging gatherings of reading the sirah books or lectures delivered by a scholars? Their mosques are free from such practices. Deobandis and Wahbis show no hesitation or objection when they celebrate the anniversaries of their scholars. But when the Sunni Muslims celebrate the greatest of the human being i.e. Hazrat Muhammad (Peace be upon him) they show reluctance and even issue rulings against such religious and holy moments. Do Deobandis serve the Islam by celebrating the anniversary of Abul Kalam Azad and such like other so called religious scholars, who served the India for his whole life?
