Ask The Imam Question and Answer

757 I just want to ask a question, is doing a Milaad for the Prophet (S.A.W) Ghunna and why if it is?
Celebrating or taking part in a Milaad (birth celebration of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) is not a Gunnah (Sin), it is rather rewarding as said by the great Scholar Imam Qastalaani (Radi Allahu anhu).

He (R.A) writes: "In the month of the birth of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Muslims always had assemblies. In the nights of that month they gave charities and expressed happiness. They always increased good deeds in those nights. They always made arrangements to read the Meelad of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) with the auspicious (hope) that Allah Ta’ala showers His blessings upon them.
One of the experienced Barakah (blessing) of Meelad is that the year passes upon them peacefully. May Allah Ta'ala send His Blessings and Favour upon that person who took Meelad-un-Nabi as Eid, so this Eid should become reason of hardness upon that person who has disease in his heart". (Mawahe bul Le Dunya).

Please also refer to our section on “The Permissibility of Celebrating Milad-un-Nabi”, which can be found in our Litreture section under the section called " Beliefs of Ahle Sunnah Wal Jammat
