The month of Ramadan, the month of blessings has come to you wherein Allah turns towards you and sends down to you this special Mercy, forgives your faults, accepts prayers, appreciates your competition for the greatest good and boasts to the Angels about you. So show to Allah your righteousness; for verily, the most pitiable and unfortunate one is he who is deprived of Allah's Mercy in this month. (Tabraani).

PREFACE

With Praise to Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala and Salaat-o-Salaam upon the Saviour of sinners, Ahmad-e Mujtaba, Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), the Mercy unto mankind, we are witnessing a milestone in the achievement of a well-researched reply to the opponents of Meelad celebrations.

The latter part of this Century saw the ever escalating opposition to the globally accepted celebration, which was always the opportunity for Muslims to flaunt their Islamic ideology and identify to the other religions on this sacred and respectable occasion.

Furthermore, it caused people from family-level to community level to attend an Islamic gathering in their own locality which fostered love and neighbourly ties. Overall, it was a platform for Muslim unity and an opportunity to entrench teachings from the Holy Quran and the authentic Traditions.

The spiritual perspectives and values are inestimable.

Moulana Abdun Nabi Hamidi has done service to a great cause. Despite his linguistic handicap (the writer is Urdu speaking), this booklet deals with the subject in a clear and systematic way.

May Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala always inspire him and bless him with increased resources and the ability to be of service to Islam.

Aameen. Summa Aameen.

THREE NECESSARY CLARIFICATIONS

Before I begin answering those objections which the organisation, Majlisul Ulema, has written against the celebration of Meelad, I feel it necessary to first clarify three important issues. These are:-
1. With reference to the Meelad celebration, only those celebrations or acts are recognied which discusses the Seerat-un-Nabi or noble life of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). In such a celebration a session of Naat (Poems in praise of Rasoolullah - sallal laalhu alaihi wasallam) recitals take place, people are fed, and a sincere effort is made to fill the hearts of Muslims with the love of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
2. For the permissisbility of Meelad celebrations, we have never meant that one should fix a particular day or night for the Meelad and believe that Meelad is not Ja’iz (permissable) on any other date. It is our view that whosoever does such an act does so out of ignorance because the love and the relation to the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) demands that one should always mention him continuously. Yes, we do say that to mention him in the month of his birth should be increased so that the people could arrange gatherings and congregations to refresh the memories of the Nabawi period.By doing so, the message of the Deen could reach the audience in a strong way through these gatherings. 
3. Thus, the gatherings of Meelad-un-Nabi are indeed a great means for calling people towards Almighty Allah. This is a golden opportunity which should not be wasted at any cost. It is, therefore, compulsory on the lecturers that they should teach people about the virtues, excellences, character, Adab, life, dealings and worship of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The masses should be invited towards good deeds, success and the fear of Shirk (polytheism), evil, Bid’at and Fitna (mischief) should be instilled in them.

With the blessings of Allah Ta'ala this had always been the tradition or way of our life.We wish to say in no uncertain terms that the purpose of these gatherings are not to merely gather the masses and demonstrate our collectivity. Rather, these functions are the means of achieving great and virtuous objectives.

The Majlisul Ulema have dropped bombs of abuse and unnecessary scandalous accusation in their booklet. Many statements were made which do not make sense to the people of knowledge and wisdom. We will not elaborate much about these in our discussion but we will try to briefly cover them towards the end of our treatise.

We will begin our subject by firstly making the readers aware of the 17 points which the Majlisul Ulema had so erroneously presented in their objections. What are their 17 points?

FACTORS WHICH MAKE THE CUSTOMARY MOULOOD CELEBRATIONS UN-ISLAMIC ACCORDING TO THE MAJLISUL ULAMA

There are many wrongs and evil attendant to the present forms of celebrating Meelad.These are as follows:

  1. The Compulsory Nature assigned to Meelad by its votaries.
     
  2. The Practice of Qiyaam or standing in reverence when the Salaami or Salawaat is recited.
     
  3. Meelad functions regarded as being of greater importance than Salaat in Jamaat.
     
  4. Qawwali - Music at Meelad functions.
     
  5. Reciting of verses which transgress the limits of legitimate praise, thus assigning a position of Divinity to our Nabi (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
     
  6. The congregation of various types of people such as Fussaaq (open and rebellious sinners), immoral people with evil intentions, etc.
     
  7. Singing at these functions by young boys and girls.
     
  8. Intermingling ofthe sexes at such gatherings.
     
  9. Salaat and its performance by Jamaat neglected on a mass scale.
     
  10. Abstention from the command of Amr Bil Ma'roof Nahy anil Munkar when these become necessary at these functions.
     
  11. Israaf or waste of money is unnecessary ventures.
     
  12. Soliciting public funds for the upkeep and organisation of these functions.
     
  13. Tashab'buh Bil Kuffaar.
     
  14. Maintaining a custom which was originated by irreligious persons.
     
  15. Reviling and branding as unbelievers and heretics those who do not participate in these functions.
     
  16. Regarding the distribution of sweetmeats as essential to these functions.
     
  17. The belief that the soul of our Nabi (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) presents itself at these functions.

It is clear that Majlisul Ulema have made several attacks on "The present form of celebrating Meelad".Before we answer each ofthese 17 points it is important to explain the present manner in which the Meelad is celebrated. The present manner or form in which Meelad iscelebrated consists of the recitation of the Holy Quran, praises of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in the form of Naats and educational lectures, charity, feeding and Salaatu Salaam which is respectfully recited in the standing position. All the above-mentioned practices are tangibly proven by the great Mohaddithin and pious personalities of Islam who are accepted as authorities amongst us and belong to the school of thought whom even the members of Majlisul Ulema claim to follow.References will be given in the discussion wherever necessary.
