Moulana Maudoodi on Eid Milad-un-Nabi ﷺ



Today is the day of great bounties for the world, because on this date, the trailblazer of this planet, Prophet Muhammad Sallallallhu Alaihi Wasallam (P.B.U.H) had arrived in this world. Though, Islamic law has not declared the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) as EID, nor has it established any customary practice for its celebration, but if people consider it as EID, due to this being the day of arrival of the greatest Prophet (P.B.U.H) of Allah and the peerless saviour of the world, and observe it as a day on which the biggest blessing of Allah for mankind came into existence, then there is no harm either. However, the manner in which it should be celebrated is not all

about eating and drinking, electrification of private and public premises, taking out processions and parades, and undertakes wasteful and exhibitory activities for mere entertainment and self satisfaction. If you do this, then there will be no distinction between you and the ignorant communities. They too celebrate distinguished events of their history through fun, fete and frolicking and if you also ape their style of celebration, then you will meet their consequences only.
