Ruling on Celebrating the Birthday of the Prophet in the Month of Rabee al-Awwal.


What is the ruling on celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in the month of Rabi 'al-Awwal in honor of him?


Honoring the Prophet and respecting him is: by believing in all that he brought from Allah, and following his laws be it a belief, word, deed and conduct, and leaving innovation in the religion. It is part of innovation in religion to celebrate the birthday of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

May Allah grant us success. May Allah's peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions.

Original Fatwa in Arabic Language:


ما حكم الاحتفال بمولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في شهر ربيع الأول تعظيمًا له عليه الصلاة والسلام؟


تعظيم النبي واحترامه إنما هو: بالإيمان بكل ما جاء به من عند الله، واتباع شريعته عقيدة وقولاً وعملاً وخلقًا، وترك الابتداع في الدين، ومن الابتداع في الدين الاحتفال بمولد النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم.

وبالله التوفيق . وصلى الله على نبينا محمد وآله وصحبه وسلم.
