'The Morning of the Muhammadan Light’ (saws)


Excerpts from Shaykh al-Islam, Muhammad bin Alawi al-Maliki’s book entitled al-Bayan wa al-Ta’reef fi Dhikri Mawlid al-Shareef. May Allah shower His mercy on him.So it is those who believe in him, honour him, help him, and follow the light which is sent down with him- it is they who will prosper’ (Surah 7:157)Three preliminary Issues

1- Mawlid; to make gatherings for hearing seerah, listening to His praise, giving food, and bringing happiness to the Ummah is acceptable.

2- Celebration Of Mawlid must not only be on 12th Rabi al-Awwal. But can and should be on everyday of every month in every mosque in order for people to feel the light.

3- Mawlid gatherings are and effective and efficient means of calling people to Allah. These meetings provide a golden opportunity that must not be lost. People should be reminded of His good character and his worship. Children will Love Him and remember Him, by giving them food and juice and gifts. May Allah shower abundant blessings on Him
