Prayer Time

  |      |      |   The Message of Islam:



All praise is for Allah, the Lord of the worlds. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.

 The command to abide by the Sharee'ah of Allah and the instructions of Allah's Messenger , and to refrain from innovating in the religion is clearly cited in the Qur'aan and the Sunnah.

 "Say (O Muhammad), 'If you (really) love Allah then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins." [Soorah aali-Imran (3): 31]


"Follow what has been sent down unto you from your Lord (the Qur'aan and the Sunnah)

and follow not any besides Him (Allah). Little do you remember!" [Soorah al-A'raf (7):3]

 "Verily, this is my Straight Path. So follow it, and follow not (other) paths, for they will separate you away from His Path." [Soorah al-An'am (6): 153]


Allah's Messenger said,

 "Verily, the truthful Speech is the Book of Allah, and the best guidance is the guidance of Muhammad and the worst affairs are the innovations.”

 "Whosoever innovates in our religion that is not from it will have it rejected." [Agreed upon]


The celebration of Mawlid an-Nabawi is from amongst the rejected innovative celebrations, and those who participate in the celebration of Mawlid are of different types; Some simply gather on the occasion and read the story of birth, give speeches and recite poems. Some prepare food and sweets, and distribute it to the attendees. Some commemorate the celebration in the mosques while others in the houses. Some do not limit themselves to the above, they add to it prohibited actions of mingling between men and women, dancing, singing or acts of Shirk like invoking and calling upon Allah's Messenger, etc.
