The month of Rabi-ul-Awal and innovations and rituals

By Tawfiq Ahmad Kashmiri

The blessings of Allah on man are as impossible to count as counting the stars in the light of the sun, but above all, the blessings that Allah has bestowed on man in particular and on the universe in general, are bestowed on his beloved, the mercy of the worlds, the good of creation and the noble people.  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was sent to the world by the Lord of Glory for the welfare of the people in Rabi-ul-Awal (Spring).  One is the time of Bihar, then the arrival of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is also Hussain Bihar.
About fourteen hundred years ago, a spring came in the deserts of Arabia, which dispelled the darkness of four hundred years, the shadows dimmed in every direction, the light began to shine on every particle, the trees became green and the earth became green, the atmosphere began to smell and  The winds began to blow, because in this spring the great emperor, the cause of the creation of Adam, the ruler of the universe, the ruler of the heavens and the earth, and the entity whose praises were rocks on the earth and stars in the sky, whose sky was the first day  Was waiting for
Whenever the rotation of time shows the crescent of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the waves of Ishq-e-Rasool wave in the hearts and the faith is suddenly refreshed.  The arrival of Rabi-ul-Awwal conveys the message of renewal of the covenant and Sunnah every year. The right of this month is that there should be no action against the Sunnah in it.  But woe to the benevolent people who have forgotten everything, who are now running to jump into the same pit of ignorance from which the noble caste Mustafa (peace be upon him) had lifted Mustafa (peace be upon him).  Is a candidate for his intercession even after making him angry.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) brought enlightened guidance and good law. He brought a blessed nation whose nights are peaceful and whose days are light. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) showed us the path on which  I succeed and from which the depravity of hearts is removed, man recognizes the Merciful. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) guided to the good of this world and the Hereafter and never used stinginess in telling the unseen.  ??????? ???? ????? ?????????? ????????? ? (???????)
So when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) fulfilled the purpose of his arrival in this world and conveyed the trust of Allaah (Islam) to the people, he willingly and willingly left his true Creator and completed this religion till the Day of Resurrection.  Leave among the people ?????????? ?????????? ?????? ????????? (???????) Now in this religion there is no room for excess and no concept of error.
My dear brothers, take some conscious nails and consider what we have to do in this blessed month and what we are engaged in.  Do what is good for us and avoid what is bad.
Happy birth and death of Rabi-ul-Awal and the Holy Prophet (sws)
There is a consensus among the scholars of the ummah that you were born on Monday, Rabi-ul-Awwal, in the month of Aam Al-Fil, but there is a difference in history. Some scholars say that you were born on the 2nd of Rabi-ul-Awwal.  That you were born on 8 / Rabi-ul-Awal.  Some say 12 Rabi al-Awwal.
According to the research of astronomer Allama Ibn Pasha, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was born on 9 / Rabi-ul-Awal, the day was Monday and the Christian date was April 20, 571 A.D. (Noor al-Yaqeen, pp. 14, 15).
Similarly, regarding the death of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), Shaykh al-Khudri says that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) departed from this world and met his true master on that day, Monday and  His age was 63 years and 3 days in terms of the lunar year and 61 years and 84 days in terms of the solar year. (Noor-ul-Yaqeen: p. 264)
There is talk in our language that the date of birth and death of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is 12 Rabi-ul-Awal and some have called it the opinion of the people, but this is out of place, because on two things  All of you agree, one is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died on Monday, and the other is that about three months before his death (on the occasion of the Farewell Hajj), 9 / Zul-Hijjah was the day of Jumu’ah  Following the same calculation, it does not prove that the birth and death of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) took place on a Monday and the date is 12 / Rabi-ul-Awwal.  It is difficult, but the date of death is very easy to calculate, such that there is a gap of three months between the death of the beloved Prophet and the farewell pilgrimage. If two months are counted as 30 days and one as 29 and one as 30 days, then 9 / Zul-Hijjah Friday  One of the reasons for the difference in the date of birth and death of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) may be that the people called the “second city Rabi al-Awwal” (ie: the second date of Rabi al-Awwal).  (See: Al-Fatawa: 2/368) In fact, all the sayings that have reached us about the date of birth and death of the Holy Prophet (sws) are as follows:  I do not have any definite and certain, but it is based on assumptions and observations. The one who had the illusion of probability did as much research as he could and copied it. He did not bother to think further, while in fact and in the matter  Allah, the Lord of Glory, has kept this matter secret and in it is hidden the mighty wisdom of Allah.
Virtue of the month of Rabi-ul-Awal
The greatness of this holy month is evident from the fact that Allah revealed the appearance of the Holy Prophet (saw) in it. In this respect, it has precedence over other months. In Islam, this month has a great virtue.  Spring, then the arrival of the Holy Prophet, this is exactly the case with Noor Ali Noor. Spring is suitable between Rabi-ul-Awal and the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Spring brings happiness to the people, brings rains of mercy, this season  The fields, the vines, the vines, the shrubs, the flowers and the vines are all in their infancy, the vitality is at its height, the effect of autumn is gone and all these attributes are of our beloved Madani Aqa (peace be upon him).  You have brought good news, you have become a spring for the fallen people of ignorance, a rain of blessings and blessings, every face and every heart has blossomed like a rose with satisfaction, people  Understanding the purpose of life, determined to work hard for the exaltation of the word of God, green and red weeping in this world and the hereafter, the arrival of the famous Prophet (peace be upon him)  So whoever is related to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is superior to all his peers.
The requirement of the month of Bihar (Rabi-ul-Awal) is that in the love and remembrance of the Beloved God, this month should be adorned with many acts of worship and good deeds and we should be very thankful for the great blessings that Allah has bestowed on us.  At least, the obligatory right of this month is not to do anything against the Sunnah, to avoid abominations and innovations, and to stay away from anything that could harm the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).  Any minor action contrary to the blessed Shari’ah brought by them should be avoided.  But woe to those who transgress!  How do they dare to attack the religion of Allah Kaharo Jabbar, consider any act against religion as the highest part of the religion, O blind of intellect! You claim the love of Mustafa (peace be upon him) by committing sins and innovations.  How do you please him by opposing the Sunnah of the Beloved Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)?  Hey so-called lovers!  Don’t defame the name of love, don’t violate the rules of love #
         Lo Kan Habak Sadiqa Lata
         He loves those who love him
 (Translation: If your love was true, you would obey your beloved. Indeed, the lover obeys his beloved.)
 Rabi-ul-Awal and innovations
Undoubtedly, the accursed Satan has embellished the people with innovations and denials and desires of the flesh, and some ignorant people have reflected this, even taking away the blessings and blessings bestowed by the Most Gracious.  They prefer the path, they change the good from the bad. Some of the innovations of these gentlemen are entrusted to them, which they consider to be commendable, but if anyone avoids or forbids them to adopt them, then the fatwa of the arrogant prophet  Do not hesitate to burn, see the innovations:
On this day (ie the twelfth of Rabi-ul-Awwal) some people gather to recite the Qur’an and Surah Yaseen, then present the reward to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). This is bid’ah because what is not required by Shari’ah  These people consider it necessary. (Al-I’tisam: p. 24)
And even if the invitation is served, the abomination is further increased, because reciting the Qur’an for the purpose of eating is makrooh according to the interpretations of the jurists.  (Response: 2/240).
One of these denials is that on this day, people are forced to spend money on food and sweets, and people are encouraged to spend money in the name of fabricated rituals due to false incentives, even on Friday sermons.  In some mosques, they are encouraged to do so. (Surprisingly, those who do not do so) are considered by them to be violators of Rabi-ul-Awwal, while none of the Salaf-e-Saliheen have done so.  So, if these people take the vow of the blessed soul of the Holy Prophet (sws), then it is a misguidance, because it is a vow of the creatures and the vow of the creatures is not permissible. (Al-Bahr al-Ra’iq: 2/520)  It is believed that the soul of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) is present everywhere and if he is pleased with our deeds, then it is disbelief.  (????????: 6/326)
One of the deadly innovations of these days is visiting graves. On this day especially visiting graves is absolutely forbidden for both men and women, then lighting on graves, lighting candles, in a sarcastic voice to the beat of drums.  Singing songs, mixed gatherings of men and women, and scattering flower petals on graves, etc., make their innovation ugly and ugly.  It is unlawful and haraam because of the time of fitnah and mischief. (Umda Al-Qari: 8/70)
Tirmidhi says:
On the authority of Ibn ‘Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him), the curse of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was: “Visiting graves and taking them to mosques and surgeons” (Chapter:
Translation: It is narrated from Ibn Abbas that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed those who visit the grave and those who prostrate in the graves and those who light the lamps there.
Some people make special arrangements to fast on this day and cite the hadith of “Muslim Sharif” as an argument:
“On the authority of Abi Qatadah that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) asked about the fast of the twelfth, he said: There is a birth, and there is a revelation to Ali.”
Translation: It is narrated from Hazrat Abi Qatadah that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) was asked about fasting on Monday. He said: “I was born on that day and revelation was revealed to me on that day”.
This hadeeth requires some consideration. One is that the hadeeth does not mention any evidence for fasting on the 12th of Rabi al-Awwal, but only encourages one to fast on Mondays, and the other is that it does not prove it.  The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to fast on the twelfth of Rabi ‘al-Awwal, and it is not narrated from the Sahaabah.  It is more primitive, but no scholar has paid attention to it. Fourthly, it is not correct to consider 12 / Rabi-ul-Awwal as the day of birth, neither in terms of intellect nor in terms of narration, as has just been said  However, the above narration shows that it is good to fast on Mondays, so we should fast on Mondays every week, not just on the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal throughout the year.
Celebrating Eid Milad-un-Nabi
By the way, all innovations and denials are ugly, but the most ugly and heinous innovation is to celebrate Milad. Sacrifice on their blind intellect, not only on those who consider it the best worship and give it the status of Islamic rites.  There are many other innovations in this innovation (ie, innovation in innovation, forbidden in forbidden), they are:
(1) The use of musical instruments and drums.  (2) mockery of the word of God, (ie recitation of the Qur’an in mixed meetings and musical instruments together). (3) the woman going out adorned and the men falling into temptation.  (4) Mixing of men and women, which is the root of all fornication. (5) Unnecessary extravagance of wealth. (6) People face difficulties and hardships due to road closures. (7) These meetings and processions  Abandoning the obligatory prayers because I am engaged in it. (8) Similarity with Judaism and Christianity. (9) Making an image of the Kaaba and Madinah, installing it in the streets and then circumambulating it and receiving blessings. (10)  (11) Reading the subject (fabricated) traditions and hadiths in these meetings. (11) Exceeding the limits in praising the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)  12) Believing that the Holy Spirit of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is present at the time of his remembrance and he is happy to see the acts of worship. These are special innovations, there are many other innovations besides  It is not possible to summarize in a short article.
 Who started the birth celebration?
The Fatimids first celebrated the birth in Cairo in the fourth century, then in the sixth century, King Muzaffar al-Din, a waste of money in the Iraqi city of Mosul, took over and popularized the milad ceremony.  Bin Waheed had the support of Abu al-Khattab. At his request, this king held a milad. This ungodly king used to spend Rs. 300,000 every year in the name of milad.
We now ask these ignorant people that the first person to celebrate the birth was a Fatimid Jew, a descendant of Obaidullah ibn Ma’mun al-Yahudi.  (Kama Qal al-Baaz) Then can a Muslim agree to imitate a Jew? Can a Muslim adopt what he has invented as a religion? Just think, it is true that these people  Do they do it for the joy of the birth of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or for the joy of his death? Because these Jews think that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) died from the poison which they mixed with goat meat.  Was presented to
It is also worth mentioning that the Companions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also celebrated the birth of Mustafa (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).  While he was the one who loved Allah and His Messenger the most, the answer would be in the negative, otherwise show us some evidence, then it should also be remembered that in the same month the Prophet  Birth took place and death took place in it. In this sense, sorrow and happiness come together in this month. Then on what basis is happiness given priority over sorrow?  How did people come up with the idea of just celebrating Eid?  Why didn’t anyone have the illusion of mourning?  Sorry sorry
Dear Muslim brothers!  In this tumultuous age, it is very easy to fall into innovation and it is very difficult to follow the Sunnah. It is very easy to act against the Shariah and it is very difficult to follow Islam.  Remember!  The more a Muslim is associated with the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), the more he will fall into the eyes of falsehood.  May Allah protect us from innovations and denials and protect our faith by following the Sunnah of the Prophet.  O Allah!  Accept us for the glory of Islam.  Aamen.
