Celebrating the birth of the Holy Prophet natural

Image
Celebrating the birth of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) is but natural
It is human nature that when a person is hurt or in some sorrow or hears about somebody’s sorrow, then even that person’s face shows his/her gloomy emotions.  In the same way, when a person sees a beautiful scene or is granted a bounty, that person’s face showcases his/her joy. 
That person mentions it to everybody. There is no pressure on that person to do so, nor does anyone consider it unreasonable. When the gain of a small worldly bounty elicits such natural joy, even though this world and everything in it is transitory and temporary, then the arrival of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) is the greatest possible bounty. All other bounties, whether they are of this world or of the hereafter are only through the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him). How much should we express our happiness and joy on this occasion?
Thus, celebrating the birth of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) and expressing happiness on i…

The mention of His birth – From His own tongue

The mention of His birth – From His own tongue

Imam Ahmed bin Hambal, Imam Bazzaar, Imam Tabarani, Imam Hakim, Imam Bayhaqi and Imam Abu Nu’aim (May Allah shower His mercy on them) relate:
Translation:  It is narrated on the authority of Hazrat ‘Irbaadh bin Saariyah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) said:  I was the bondsman of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets when Adam (May peace be upon him) was yet in the throes of creation.  I make it clear to you that I am the supplication of Hazrat Ibrahim (May peace be upon him), the glad tidings of Hazrat ‘Isa (May peace be upon him) and the vision of my mother which she saw and similarly the mothers of the Prophets used to have visions and indeed the mother of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) saw such a radiance that the mansions of Syria were illuminated.  (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 78)
As per another Hadith, the gathering of the people on the Day of Judgment will be held in Syria.  The …

In the celebration of Prophet (Pbuh) Birth, 3 Flags were Placed

Image
In the celebration of His birth 3 flags were placed
The great Hadith-expert Imam Jalaluddin ‘Abdur Rahman bin Abu Bakr Suyuti (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has written in Khasais-e-Kubra and Imam Ahmad bin Muhammad Qustullani (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has written in Mawahib Ladunniyya:
Translation: Syeda Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) says: I saw that 3 flags were placed at the time of His birth, one in the east, one in the west and one on the Ka’aba. (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 82; Al Mawahib Al Ladunniyya, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 125)
A flag was placed on the Ka’aba to show to the world that until now 360 idols were placed in and around the Ka’aba. Falsehood was worshipped there, but now that Great Prophet (Peace be upon him) has come who will clear the Ka’aba of all filth and will make it the direction in which all people will turn to pray.
By placing flags in the east and the west, it is being suggested that this is the birth of that Prophet whose rule and au…

What Hazrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) Saw

What Hazrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) saw
There is a Tradition in Musnad Imam Ahmed bin Hambal:
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Irbaadh bin Saariya (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says: The mother of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) saw that at the time of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) such a radiance issued forth that the palaces of Syria could be seen. (Musnad Imam Ahmed bin Hambal, Hadith No. 17615)
Why all these preparations? Because that Master is coming for whom everyone was waiting. He is the One, the glad tidings of whose arrival were given by the Prophets. He is the One, to be in whose Ummah was the wish of Hadhrat Musa (May peace be upon him).

Divine signs at the time of Prophet birth | The Ka’aba sways for 3 days

Divine signs at the time of His birth – The Ka’aba sways for 3 days
Even the Ka’aba was expressing happiness on the coming of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him):
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Amr bin Qutaybah says: I heard my father say and he was a great reservoir of knowledge that when the time of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) came near, Almighty Allah ordered His angels to open all the doors of all the heavens and to open the doors of paradise as well. Then they should present themselves on earth and start congratulating each other. The mountains raised themselves further. The waves of the sea grew even higher. The creation of the oceans and seas started congratulating each other. All the angels had come. Satan was chained with 70 chains and he was cast face-down in the ocean. Devils and rebellious genie were chained. That day the sun was adorned with great radiance and 70,000 damsels were stood above it. They waited for the birth of t…

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was Born Pure

Image
The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) was Born Pure

To clean the world of all disbelief, polytheism, misguidance and blind beliefs, the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him), the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) arrived in this world pure in every conceivable way. Hazrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) says about Him: When He arrived, it was in such a state that there was not even smudge on Him nor any other flaw of any kind. (Al Mawahib Al Ladunniyya, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 220)
His blessed body was giving off a wonderful fragrance.  He had come with kohl in His eyes and with His umbilical cord cut. (As Seerah Al Halabiya, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 53)
The poet of the Prophet’s court, Hazrat Hassaan bin Thabit (May Allah be well pleased with him) says the same thing in his famous couplet:
O Prophet of Allah (Peace be upon him)! My eyes have not seen anybody more beautiful than you. No woman has ever given birth to anyone more beautiful than you.
You have been born free of every defect and flaw as if …

Selecting the Month of Rabi ul Awwal for His arrival

Image
Selecting the month of Rabee Al Awwal for His arrival

The month of the birth of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) is Rab’ee Al Awwal. The reason this month is selected for His birth is that the word “Rab’ee” means spring. When spring comes, dead land again comes back to life. Greenery again adorns the earth. The dried up trees again wear the cloak of leaves. Gardens and orchards regain their lost bloom. Thus, Almighty Allah is giving us a sign that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) who has come in this month will revive dead hearts. He will succour the people who have oppressed. He will adorn the hearts with love and grant them the sweetness of faith.  He will fortify heedless hearts with the remembrance of Almighty Allah.

The Radiance of the Holy Prophet (Pbuh) in Hazrat Amina (RZ)

The radiance of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) in Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her)

Then that radiance was transferred to Hadhrat ‘Abdullah from Hadhrat ‘Abdul Muttalib (May Allah be well pleased with them).  At the age of 24, Hadhrat ‘Abdullah (May Allah be well pleased with him) was wedded to Hadhrat Amina bint Wahb (May Allah be well pleased with her).  In the month of Rajab, in a Friday night, Hadhrat Amina bint Wahb (May Allah be well pleased with her) was entrusted with this radiance.  As given in Mawahib Ladunniya on the authority of Khateeb Baghdadi:
Translation: Imam Sahl bin ‘Abdullah Tustri has related that Tradition, which Khateeb Baghdadi narrated: When Almighty Allah deemed it fit, the radiance of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) should enter the womb of Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with him). It was the month of Rajab and was a Friday night. This night, Almighty Allah ordered the keeper of paradise “Ridhwan” that all the gates of par…

The Birth of the Holy Beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Image
The month of Rab’ee Al Awwal is the month in which our Beloved Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was born. Allah Most High has made His birth distinguished.  To express the towering status and grandeur of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), Allah Most High sent down innumerable blessings and caused such a glad atmosphere that the year of the Prophet’s birth is remembered as the year of joy and delight.

There is a verse in the Holy Quran:
I swear by this city (Mecca). Surah Balad (90:01)
In this verse of the Holy Quran, Almighty Allah swears by Makkah.
Now, somebody might think that Almighty Allah did so because Makkah is one of the greatest centers of spirituality. It is such a city that great signs of Allah’s power are present there. The Ka’aba is in that city, the heavenly black stone Hajr Aswad, is there, the Hateem and Meezaab-e-Rahmat are in that city, the Maqam Ibraheem is there. Indeed, Makkah has all these distinctions. But Almighty Allah doesn’t swear by Makkah fo…

Hadhrat Pir Meher Ali Shah’s fight against Qadianism

Image
The background to Hadhrat’s entry into the struggle against Qadianism is that during his visit to the Hijaz for Hajj in 1890 AD (1307 A.H.), the chaste atmosphere of the Holy Land had touched him so deeply that he had thought of permanently settling down there. However, Haji Imdad-ullah Muhajir of Makkah had advised him to return home in the following words:
“In the near future, a dangerous and evil movement is likely to raise its head in India, and you are destined to play a key role in combating it. Even if you do nothing actively against this movement, your mere presence in the country would help shield the country’s ulama against its pernicious effects”. The truth of these words was proved barely a year later, i.e., in 1891, when Mirza of Qadian announced his (initial) claim to be the Promised Massiah (Jesus Christ) – an announcement that was to culminate about ten years later in his claim to be a full-fledged prophet of God in his own right.
Two spiritual visions experienced by Had…

Mujaddid of the Hijri 14th Century
It was during the debates surrounding Ahle Sunnat differences with the Nadwis that a number of Ahle Sunnat ‘ulema’ made the remarkable claim that Imam Ahmad Raza was the mujaddid (renewer) of the Hijri 14th century. In the course of the Ahle Sunnat meeting in Patna in 1900, Maulana Abdul Muqtadir Badayuni (may Allah be pleased with him), the sajjada-nishan [successor to a Sufi pir] of the Khanqah e-Qadiria at Badayun, referred to Imam Ahmad Raza (may Allah be pleased with him) in…
