Love for Prophet Mohammad (pbuh) is what differentiates the believers in the perfection of their Iman (faith). In an authentic hadith related in Bukhari and Muslim, the Prophet (pbuh) said: “None of you believes until he loves me more than he loves his children, his parents, and all people.” In another hadith in Bukhari he said: “None of you believes until he loves me more than he loves himself” and Sayyidina `Umar said: “O Prophet, I love you more than myself.”

Loving the Prophet (pbuh) and following him is a main component of Faith. ALLAH has repeatedly emphasized the believers in the Qur’an to Obey ALLAH and His Messenger (pbuh), and ignoring this Command puts one’s faith in doubt;
So fear ALLAH and set things right between you, and obey ALLAH and His Messenger if you are (in truth) believers. (The Holy Quran, Surrah Al-Anfaal 8:1)
Say (O Muhammad pbuh): “Obey ALLAH and the Messenger (Muhammad pbuh).” But if they turn away, then ALLAH does not like the disbelievers. [The Holy Quran 3:31-32]
Thus it is very important to follow the Prophet (pbuh) to have perfect Imaan (faith), ALLAH says in the Qur’an; Indeed in the Messenger of ALLAH (Muhammad pbuh) you have a good example to follow for him who hopes in (the Meeting with) ALLAH and the Last Day and remembers ALLAH much. [Al-Ahzab; 33:21], so ALLAH has placed a role model in front of us to pursue and adapt our lives according to it, with the guarantee from ALLAH of being the best model which ALLAH likes




Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said in the Farewell hajj sermon;
“Imam Tirmidi has narrated from Sayyidina Jabir ; he states: ‘I saw Nabi (s.a.a.w) in Hajj on the day of Arafat, he was sat on a camel and he said: ‘O people! I am leaving with you such things that if you hold fast to them you will never go astray, they are the book of ALLAH (Quran) and my Sunnah.’
(Jami Tirmidhi)
He further said;
“…The people of Israel divide into divided into 72 sects, my Ummah will divide into 73 sects, all of them will be in the hellfire, and one of them will be in paradise.” We asked “Which one is saved?” The Prophet (saw) said, “The one that is with me and my Companions.”3
[Abdullah ibn Amru, Tirmidhi, Hadith No. 2565 ]

Now keeping these verses of the Qur’an and Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in mind, lets see what was the sunnah of prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions in regard to 12th Rabi ul Awwal or the birthday of the prophet (pbuh), in the following extracts:-
“Most historians are silent about the exact date of birth of the Prophet (s.a.w), where as those who do mention it, there are many contradictions and disagreements amongst them.
Muhammad Husain Haykal in the biography of Muhammad (s.a.w) writes :
“Historians have disagreed about the year of Muhammad’s birth. Most of them hold that it took place in “the Year of the Elephant,” i.e. 570 C.E. Ibn ‘Abbas claims that Muhammad (s.a.w) was born on “the Day of the Elephant.” Others claim that he was born fifteen years earlier. Still others claim that he was born a few days, months, or years, after “the Year of the Elephant.” Some even assert that Muhammad was born thirty years and others seventy years later than “the Year of the Elephant.”
Historians have also differed concerning the month of Muhammad’s birth although the majority of them agree that it was Rabi` al Awwal, the third month of the lunar year. It has also been claimed that he was born in Muharram, in Safar, in Rajab, or in Ramadan.

Furthermore, historians have differed as to the day of the month on which Muhammad was born. Some claim that the birth took place on the third, of Rabi` al Awwal; others, on the ninth; and others on the tenth. The majority, however, agree that Muhammad (s.a.w) was born on the twelfth of Rabi` al Awwal, the claim of ibn Ishaq and other biographers.”
The presence of such disagreements on the exact day of his birth, proves that birthdays were not important to the Arabs. Arabs were very well known for their great memorization skills. They used to know the lineage of their families and other Arabs by heart; they used to know hundreds of verses of poetry by heart, a great feat of memorization.
If the birthday of Prophet Muhammad PBUH was such an important celebration, surely they would have remembered it and noted it down. Furthermore, there is also no proof from history that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) mentioned his exact date of birth or encouraged his followers to hold milads/mawlid or recite durood loudly on this day.
History proves that Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) never celebrated his own birthday. He used to fast on Mondays irrespective of the month. All that we know for sure is that he was born on a Monday and that deeds are presented to ALLAH on Mondays, which is the reason he used to fast on Mondays. His exact date of birth and even the month is a subject of debate, which further proves the insignificance of birthday celebration of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
Further more none of the Sahaba, his closest companions ever celebrated his birthday, decorated mosques, read aloud poetry in his praise or held milads or took out processions on 12th Rabiul Awal.
So when we say that we dearly love our Prophet saw and therefore there is no harm in displaying this love on 12 Rabiul Awwal, we need to analyze our selves and ask our selves…
If companions of Rasool ALLAH did not celebrate Milad then why are we celebrating it?
Do we love Prophet Muhammd saw more than his closest companions who sacrificed their lives, family , wealth and property for him? Do we love our Prophet (s.a.w) more than these sahaba? Do we know a better way of expressing our love then the sahaba?Are we better Muslims than the Sahaba Karam (ra)? Are we more pious than Abu Bakar and Umar and Ali and usman radiallahu anhum?? Are we more knowledgeable than these companions? Obviously Not!
This tradition of Milads seeped into Muslims culture later on and was not part of original Islam. It is clearly an innovation a new thing added into Islam which is a Bida and therfore should not be celebrated as it was not part of original Islam practiced by the companions at the time of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Rasool ALLAH (s.a.w) him self said:“Whoever has performed a deed which is not in the religion from its inception is rejected (not acceptable to ALLAH)“. (Bukhari and Muslim)
History of Mawlud


The basic earliest accounts for the observance of Mawlid can be found in 8th century Mecca, when the house in which Prophet Muhammad was born was transformed into a place of prayer by Al-Khayzuran (mother of Harun al-Rashid, the fifth and most famous Abbasid caliph).[5] Public celebrations of the birth of Muhammad did not occur until four centuries after his death. It was originally a festival of the Shia ruling class, not attended by the common people, with the first official Mawlid celebrations occurring in Egypt towards the end of the 11th century.[5][6] The early celebrations included elements of Sufic influence, with animal sacrifices and torchlight processions along with public sermons and a feast.[7][8] The celebrations occurred during the day, in contrast to modern day observances, with the ruler playing a key role in the ceremonies.[9] Emphasis was given to the Ahl al-Bayt with presentation of sermons and recitations of the Qur’an. The event also featured the award of gifts to officials in order to bolster support for the ruling caliph.[9]
Abu al-Abbas al-Azafi (1162–1236) established the custom of celebrating Mawlid in Morocco. His son Abu’l-Qasim propagated it throughout the Maghreb.[10]
The first public celebrations by Sunnis took place in twelfth-century Syria, under the rule of Nur ad-Din Zangi Though there is no firm evidence to indicate the reason for the adoption of the Shi’ite festival by the Sunnis, some theorize the celebrations took hold to counter Christian influence in places such as Spain and Morocco.[11] Theologians denounced the celebration of Mawlid as unorthodox,[12] and the practice was briefly halted by the Ayoubides when they came to power, becoming an event confined to family circles.[13] It regained status as an official event again in 1207 when it was re-introduced by Muzaffar ad-din, the brother-in-law of Saladin, in Arbil, a town near Mosul, Iraq.[7][8]

The practice spread throughout the Muslim world, assimilating local customs, to places such as Cairo, where folklore and Sufic practices greatly influenced the celebrations. By 1588 it had spread to the court of Murad III, Sultan of the Ottoman Empire.[5][14] In 1910, it was given official status as a national festival throughout the Ottoman empire. Today it is an official holiday in many parts of the world.[5]

So it is clearly seen that celebrating 12th Rabi ul Awwal was a practice not to be found in the history of Islam till many hundred years after the time of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his companions. The Prophet (pbuh) did not encourage his sahaba to celebrate his birthday and not only that, the following hadith reveal that he disliked to be magnified and exaggerated,
Anas said that none was dearer to them than ALLAH’s Messenger, and they would not stand up when they saw him due to their knowledge that he disliked it. Tirmidhi (Adab – 5:90 # 44) said it is hasan sahih (fair and sound).
