The celebration of Saiyidul Aaiyad Shareef meant the best Eid, Eid-e-Milad-e-Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is not Bidwat (New matter), those who says that say it because of their ignorance.
Basically, Saiyidul Mursalin, Imamul Mursalin, Habeebullah Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam Himself has celebrated His Eid-e-Milad-e-Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. The day of His Biladat (Birth) Shareef is Yawmul Isnayeen or Monday. He kept fasting becoming grateful on this day. That means, He observes Milad-e-Habeebi Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.
Hadrat Abu Katadah Rawdiallahu Ta’la Anhu describes, “Once the matter of fasting on Yawmul Isnayeenil Azeem Shareef and Yawmul Khamis is asked to Noor-e-Mujassam Habeebullah Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.” He replied, “I got Biladat (Birth) Shareef, the Mubarak revelation or sacred Quran Shareef is revealed to me on this Day.” Ref: Muslim Shareef-2807, Abu Dawood Shareef-2428, Sunane Kubra Lee Bayhaqi-8217, Ibn Khujaima Shareef-2117, Musnade Abee Awana-2926, Musnade Ahmad Shareef-22603
It is known from the sacred Hadith Shareef that the sacred Monday Shareef is the day of getting Mubarak Biladat Shareef and Mubarak Nubuwat revelation formally of Saiyidul Mursalin, Imamul Mursalin, Khwatamun Nabiyyin, Noor-e-Mujassam Habeebullah Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. The indication of fasting on this day includes in sacred Hadith Shareef.
It is more proved that, there must be expressed Happiness or celebrated the day of getting Biladat (Birth) Shareef and the day of special Barakah. Because, Noor-e-Mujassam Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam Himself used to fast becoming grateful on the day of arrival. Habeebullah Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam Himself used to celebrate His Arrival Day on the day of Biladat (Birth) Shareef.
And this fast has been considered as the basis of Eid-e-Milad-e-Habeebullah by the great Imam of the ages Hadrat Jalaluddin Suiti Rahmatullahi Alaihi and Imam Ibn Hazar Askalani Rahmatullahi Alaihi.
That evidence is mentioned below:
And the basis of the benefits of place and time is those Ibada’t which are related to that time. Because, it is informed to all that the glory of place and time don’t be from that root rather it is achieved through the internal characteristic of that glorious time and place. Now follow those work which are fixed with Rabiul Awual Shareef and Monday. Don’t you see that the fasting at Monday has many benefits? Because, the Biladat Shareef of Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam had become on this day. So, when this month comes, we should show honor and importance to the month and should follow Nabi Karim Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. Because, there had a habit that He used to do Ibada’t on the beneficent time and donate in many amounts.
In this context, I (Imam Jala Uddin Suiti) and Milader (for Legality) made a principal. That is, Imam Bayhaki (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) describes from Hadrat Anas Rawdiallahu Ta’la Anhu – Nabi Karim Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam do His Akeeka (program on the Birth) after getting His Nubuyyat. Though His grandfather Hadrat Abdul Muttlib has done the Akeekah Mubarak at the seven day of His Biladat (Birth) Shareef. And the Akeekah couldn’t be done two times. So, this Akeekah would be considered as the Ibada’t to express gratefulness to Allah Pak because Allah Pak has created Him as the Al -lameen (Rahamat of whole world and He performed His Akeekah to legitimate His Ummah again.
Such as He used to read Durud Shareef on Him. So, we should gather people at Milad, feeding them and expressing Happiness in legal way to become grateful to Magnificent Allah Pak.
Hadrat Ibn Hazar Askalani Rahmatullahi Alaihi provide the two fasts of Ashura Shareef as the evidence of the observance of sacred Eid-e-Milad-e-Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam. He said, “these two fasts are kept as grateful to Allah. There are many ways to be grateful to Allah Pak. Such as, fasting, doing Sijda, reciting Quran, donating. And Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam is the greatest Niamah (Favor). Ref: Husnul Makasid Fi Amalil Mawlid-63, Al Habee Leel Fatwah-105, Subhul Huda war Rashad-366 page of 1st part, Hujjatullahi Alal Alamin.
So, from the above mentioned It is proved as exclusive Sunnah to express Mubarak Happiness or celebrate Eid-e-Milade Habeebullah Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam for getting Hudur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, Not Bidwat (New matter).
