Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi 2023 History, Message, Wish, Quotes and Status

Many may be surprised that it is no Eid!  right? Some people say or want to say that Muslims have two Eids. So where did “Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi” come from? The literal meaning of the word Eid is to be happy, to return, to celebrate, etc. Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi means the arrival of the beloved Prophet. And ‘Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi’ means celebrating the coming of the Prophet.

Therefore, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) brought peace to the conflicting Arabs full of chaos and brutality and made the whole world full of peace by guiding mankind in the direction of truth, civilization, and justice.

Celebrating the holy auspicious arrival of the Prophet is ‘Eid Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi’ Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam. This year Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi will be celebrated on 26th September. Where the Prophet did not celebrate Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi, the hypocritical Sunnis created a new Eid.  Muslim Eid has two days.  Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha.

So I want to remind you- Allah Ta’ala declared, “Rejoice in receiving the favor and mercy of Allah, which is better than all your riches and wealth.  – (Surah Yunus-58)

And “Remember the favors of Allah which have come down upon you” – (Surah Al-Baqarah-231)

History of Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi

During the time of the Prophet (S), there was no festival called Eid Miladunnabi (S) during the time of Khulafay Rasheedin and even during the time of the Tabeees and Tabee-Tabeees. Jamar Muhaddiseen Kiram, jurists, and historians have agreed on this. During the period of the Abbasid Caliphates, the social celebration of any day outside of the two main Muslim Eid festivals began in the middle of the 4th century AH at the initiative of the Shia community.

First of all, in 352 Hijri (963 AD), the chief administrator of the Abbasid Caliphate of Baghdad and the chief controller of the state, Bani Buayhir, the Shia ruler Muizli Dinillah, ordered the 10th of Muharram Ashura to be observed as a day of mourning and the 8th of the month of Zilhaj as a ‘Gadire Khum’ day. On his orders, these two days are observed with social and state dignity. Shias also played a leading role in celebrating Miladunnabi on Eid.

According to historians, Miladunnabi was celebrated by the Fatimid rulers of Egypt on the 12th of the month of Rabiul Awal, and the tradition of Miladunnabi on Eid dates back to the middle of the 4th century AH. Khalifa Muizli Dinillah was the main promoter of celebrating the birthdays of Rasool (S), Hazrat Ali (RA), Hazrat Fatima (RA), Imam Hasan (RA), and Imam Hussain (RA).

According to the sources of Ibn Zari, during the period of the Abbasid caliphs, King Harunur Rashid’s mother Khayjuran B.B. 173 Hijri made a pilgrimage to Madinah Sharif during the fast of the Prophet (S) and recited blessings and supplications there, just like the house in which the Prophet (S) was born in Makkah. , first introduced the practice of visiting that house and praying there. Later, on 12 Rabiul Awal, pilgrims led by that woman started celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (S) every year in that house.

After this birth anniversary was introduced among Muslims, Afzal Ibn Amirul Jaish (485-515 AH) took over the power of Egypt and 5 other Prophets [Ali (RA), Fatima (RA), Hasan (RA), Hussain (RA) and Zainul Abedin (  Ra)] canceled the custom of birth anniversary. It was reopened in 515 AH by the Shia Caliph Amir Bil Ahkamillah. Later, according to Quran and Sunnah, Gazi Salahuddin Ayyubi (532-587 Hijri) stopped all birthday celebrations including Miladunnabi on Eid.

Later, the most famous promoter of Eid Miladunnabeer was Abu Saeed Muzaffar al-Din Kukuburi, the ruler of Erbil Province in Iraq. He was the first to introduce Miladunnabeer on Eid among other Muslim communities of the world including Sunnis. Siratunnabi researchers and historians call him the real inventor of Miladunnabi.

Because he was the first to start celebrating this festival on a large scale and popularized it among common people. As it is known, the official Milad celebration started at 604 Hijri.  The first book on Milad was written by Abul Khattab Omar Ibn Hasan ibn Dehiya Al Kalbi, a native of Spain.  During his 90 years long, life traveled all over the Islamic world and created interest among people on Eid Miladunnabi.

Why do people celebrate Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi?

Allama Ibn Hajar Haytami (RA) said the policy of observing Miladunnabi (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was prevalent even during the era of Khulafay Rashedeen.

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A.) said “Whoever spends one dirham on behalf of Miladunnabi, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, will be my companion in Paradise.”

Hazrat Umar (R.A.) said, “Whoever honors the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) will keep the religion of Islam alive.”

Hazrat Uthman (RA) said, “Whoever spends a single dirham on the Prophet (PBUH) is like a partner in the Battle of Badr and the Battle of Honan.”

Hazrat Ali (R.A.) said, “Whoever pays homage to the Milad of the Prophet, peace, and blessings be upon him, and undertakes to recite the Milad, he will depart from this world with faith and enter Paradise free of charge.”

 From the reference to the above Quran and Hadith, it is understood that the observance of ‘Eid Miladunnabi’, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is the means of attaining Paradise and the deeds of the Companions. Therefore, in agreement with the Companions, the believers must celebrate Eid Miladunnabi, may God bless them and grant them peace.

May Allah Almighty protect our faith from the clutches of the hypocrites and make us all among those who give the dignity of Miladunnabeer on Eid and realize its dignity.

How to celebrate Eid-E-Milad-Un Nabi?

When the Holy Prophet (PBUH) was asked about fasting on Monday, he said, “On this day I was born and on this day I was given prophethood.” (Muslim Sharif, Hadith: 1162)

In the light of this pure hadith described in the Muslim Sharif, what should the Ummah do on the birthday of the beloved Prophet?  On this day, the ummah must fast. Reciting more Darood and Salam on him.  In another hadith, the Holy Prophet (PBUH) said, “On Mondays and Thursdays, the deeds of the servant are presented in the court of Allah.”  So I prefer that my deeds be presented while fasting.’ (Tirmidhi, Hadith: 747)

Therefore fasting Nafal on the birthday of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is an expression of true love for the Prophet. The most important thing is that the entire life of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is more important to us than the birth of the Prophet (PBUH). The matter of the birth of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is purely his matter. 

But his Sirat or biography is for all ages, for all people. For the liberation of world humanity.  And the first condition of loving the Prophet is obedience to the Prophet. If it is not reflected in real life, the claim of the Prophet’s love is meaningless.
