is celebrating milad an innovation pls clarify?


Answer:

Ref. No 1280

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

The answer to your question is as it follows:

The mention of the holy birth day of Imamul Anbiya and the final Prophet of Allah, his high conducts and behaviors, and his pure biography with great feeling of love for our Prophet (saws) is indeed a virtue and sign of Faith. But the existing way of celebrating birthday of the Prophet of Allah (saws) is baseless and innovation. One has to abstain from it at any cost. As it is written in fatawa books.

And Allah knows best
