The birthday of the Holy Prophet is a great event for the Muslims. On this event, they show off their lovely feelings with Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW). Although all the Muslims celebrate the Eid Milad un Nabi, so the non-Muslims ask that why we do celebrate Milad un Nabi? If you are also finding the answer to the same question, then you don’t need to go anywhere else. In this article, I am going to discuss the reason for the Eid Milad un Nabi celebration. Stay with me!
Why Do We Celebrate Milad un Nabi?
There are many reasons why do we celebrate the Milad un Nabi, but I will discuss some reason. One reason is that Eid Milad un Nabi is the birthday of the Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW). Firstly, we should discuss the history of Eid Milad un Nabi. The purpose of discussing history is what history tells us that we can celebrate or not. After the Eid Milad un Nabi History, I will tell you the meaning of Rabi ul Awwal. Follow my words!
Eid Milad un Nabi History
The Islamic calendar has twelve months. The name of the third month is Rabi ul Awwal. Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) was born on 12th Rabi ul Awwal in Makkah which is the city of Saudi Arabia. Allah gave us the great Holy Prophet on this day.
As you know that before Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW), each kind of badness is present in society. Anybody can’t tell the solution of any badness. The behavior of the people is ruthless with each other. They abused their parents.
Furthermore, they didn’t respect their women even they sold their ladies in the markets. They sold their daughters alive and make slaves the women and misbehave with them. Wine drinking was common in the people of Makkah. They fought with each other at any mistake and killed each other.
The people of Makkah had reached the bank of the Hell. If Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) didn’t come, then the people of Makkah can be destroyed. Allah gave us the great blessing, and the Holy Prophet was Born in Makkah.
Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) pulled the people from Hell with Islamic education and entered in Heaven. Due to the Islamic teachings, people got equal rights. The Holy Prophet said that anyone is not higher than others, and all people are equal in front of Allah.
Hence, the history of Eid Milad un Nabi proves that why do we celebrate Milad un Nabi? If Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) was not born, then we can’t get the primary purpose of our life. So, we should celebrate the birthday of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) and thanks to Allah due to giving this great blessing.
Let’s see that is Rabi ul Awwal allows us to celebrate the birthday of the Holy Prophet. Or, the Rabi ul Awwal is a month of happiness or sorrow.
Rabi ul Awwal Meaning
The Rabi ul Awwal meaning is first spring. Rabi means spring and Awwal mean first. If the meaning of Rabi ul Awwal is first spring, and then we can celebrate the birthday of the Holy Prophet (SAWW). It is the reason that Muslims understands that Rabi ul Awwal is the month happiness.
Muslims help needy people and feed hungry people at this great event. These things bring happiness for the needy and poor people. if we study the beautiful life of the Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW), then we see that these are lessons which gave the Holy Prophet to us.
Furthermore, we should not waste money on any other work instead to helping the poor and needy people. If someone has no money to help the poor, then he can celebrate this event by offering Nawafil.
Now, we should discuss that either Allah gives us the order to celebrate the Eid Milad un Nabi or not. Stay with me!
What Orders of Allah about the Eid Milad un Nabi Celebration?
Here, we will discuss what should we celebrate the birthday of the Holy Prophet. As you know that Allah gives His message in the Quran. So, recite the Holy Quran and search the answer. Let’s start!
Allah says in the Surah Ibrahim that “And Remember them the days of Allah”. What’s mean it, or whose days? Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas also read this Ayat of Quran and said that Allah is talking about those days when the Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) was born.
It means that we should celebrate the Eid Milad un Nabi, because it is the birthday of Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW).
“Indeed, Allah has given great favor to the Muslims that from them, one of them sent a Messenger of Allah.” It is the Ayat number 164 of Surah Al-Imran. In this Ayat, Allah says that I sent the many Prophets on the earth, but I gave a great blessing to Muslims.
Furthermore, you know well that Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) is the prophet of Muslims and a also great blessing for the Muslims. Now, it is the right of Muslims that they should thank Allah’s blessings. According to this point of view, we can celebrate the Eid Milad un Nabi.
Allah says, “Ae Habib! You say, Due to the grace of ALLAH and his mercy, they should be pleased, and this happiness is better than everything they collect”. It is the Ayat number 58 of Surah Yonas. In this Ayat, Allah says to His Prophet that Ae Habib says to the people, they should be pleased due to the mercy of Allah. And, this mercy is more significant than all the things.
Allah’s orders also prove that why do we celebrate Milad un Nabi? So, we should not deny Allah’s orders.
