Tweet In reading the various seasonal polemics these days on the Mawlid, I have come across those who, of all people, quote Shaykhul Islam Ibn Taimiyyah as a supporter of the Mawlid. They even provide two quotes three pages apart from one of his books, separated conveniently by an ellipses […]. Before exploring his words, let us begin with a few important points. Thus, his book was primarily focused on encouraging Muslims to avoid imitating the ways of the disbelievers.
The Prophet SAW has taught us the best of deeds are those that done consistently, even if they are small. And it may be that Allah may reward them for this love and for the ijtihaad they made, but not for the innovation of taking the birthday of the Prophet saas as a festival; despite the differences regarding his actual birthday. For indeed, this was an act never performed by the earlier generations … had it been good in essence or correct Islamically, then those earlier generations may Allah be pleased with them would have more right to such a deed than us, for they had greater love for the Messenger saas and exalted him more than we do, and they were more concerned and ardent with performing good deeds than us.
Indeed, this was the way of the foremost among the earlier generations from the Muhajireen and Ansaar and those who followed them with excellence.
It has been narrated that once Ibn Taimiyyah was walking with his students when they came across some drunken Mongol soldiers. In his time, the Mongolians had invaded the Muslim lands, including Iraq where he was born, and they had decimated these lands with a degree of killing heretofore never seen. He answered them with great wisdom by saying that when they are sober they kill Muslims, and this is a far greater evil then their drinking lesser of two evils.
So, in summary what may seem like Ibn Taimiyyah validating or permitting the celebration of the Mawlid is in theory no different than this example. While there are some observant Muslims who do participate in these celebrations, there is also a large group of people as he observed above, who take this as another excuse for another party.
It is well known in many Muslim societies what happens at Mawlids from mixing of the sexes, tabarruj women coming out displaying their beauty , people neglecting their prayers or partying so late that they sleep through fajr, etc. Again, this is not to say that this is only what happens, but it happens often enough unfortunately. As regards those who are observant and keen to follow the Sunnah, such people should be presented with the evidences and encouraged to repent — and it should suffice most observant Muslims that celebrating the Mawlid was never a deed that was practiced among the early generations nor was the concept of celebrating a birthday even to be found among them and that there is no report in the Quran, hadith or statements of the Companions on this matter whatsoever.
As for the less observant group, one has to use wisdom. Is it possible to try to influence these gatherings so as to reduce the mixing and tabarruj and to increase the focus on learning the life of the Prophet saas and his Sunnah? What good exists in any particular Mawlid celebration that we can try to build upon so as to diminish the impact of the evil that exists in it? This is the wisdom with which Ibn Taimiyyah approached this matter. And indeed it may even be that their condition is worse than some of those who are practicing these innovations that are tainted with some degree of dislike makruh.
For the religion is to command good and to forbid evil and neither of these two takes precedence over the other. So one should not forbid an evil without commanding a good to take its place in the same way that we call people to the worship of Allah alone after having forbid them from worshipping others beside Him. Also, we must remember that humility is a great part of righteousness and this entails the assumption that the one to whom we are speaking is better than us.
Even though they may have erred and been swept up by a certain innovation or temptation from the evils of the world, it may be that they are more sincere than us and practice more of the Sunnah elsewhere than us. This is why Ibn Taimiyyah humbly hoped that Allah would reward them, for who knows what innovations we may unknowingly be practicing or even worse, if we have some hidden shirk within our hearts.
Subhana Maulid in Tamil
The spirit, inspiration, gratitude and love expressed for the Beloved Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa alihi was salaam was overwhelming as the beautiful sounds of salawaat filled the air in Madina. True to the love expressed in South Africa during the blessed month of Rabi-al-awal, the crowd increased as all who were attracted by the salawaat and thikrullah leading up to a special Mawlid and thikrullah were welcomed to the program. The program was based on the recitation of the Holy Quran and the feeding of the poor and needy of Madinatul Munawwarah. True to the selfless qualities that South Africans have become known for, they demonstrated their generosity in keeping with the spirit of the Sunnah. There are some misguided rumors that the Saudi Authorities stopped the Mawlid and accused the Attendees of Grave Worshipping. These rumours are unfounded as two representatives of the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice participated in the program and questioned the honourable Quarie about the length and duration of the program and once satisfied allowed the gathering to continue. The program ended with Niyaz traditional dhal and rice.
