Haji Imadadullah Muhajir Makki (r.a) 's Opinion on Mawlid and Qiyam


Haji Imdadullah Muhajir Makki (1233-1317) .The famous guide of numerous notable and influential scholars, his students and successors include: Mawlana Qasim Nanotwi, Mawlana Rashid Ahmad Gangohi, Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi, Mawlana Mahmud al-Hasan, Pir Mehr Ali Shah Golrawi and the founder of Jami Nizamia Mawlana Anwarullah Faruqi.
He said in his ‘Shamaim Imdadiyyah’ (p.47):
The blessed Mawlid is practised by all of the people of the Haramain, this is a sufficient proof for us. How can the rememberance of the Messenger [Hazrat Risalat Panah] Allah bless him and give him peace be censured?! However the excesses of people which they have invented should be avoided. As for the standing (qiyam) I do not say anything, Yes, I experience a state in the standing (qiyam).
He also said in ‘Faisla Haft Masala’ (p.7):
The approach/view (mashrab) of the needy one (faqir) is that I participate in it, rather I hold it to be a means of blessings and organise it each year and experience a pleasure in the standing (qiyam).
