THE RULING CONCERNING MAWLID AN-NABAWI
By Sheikh Saleh Ibn Fawzan
“Those who participate in the celebration of Mawlid an-Nabawi 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 (ﷺ), etc.
In this book, Shaikh Saleh al-Fawzan enumerated several reasons behind the prohibition of celebrating the Mawlid, and explicitly clarified the major doubts raised up by the proponents of Mawlid.
