Do you know of the saddest day in the life of The Messenger’s (S) companions ?
Do you know of that day they wept the most & fell unconscious out of grief ?
Do you know of one of the favorite days of shaitaan when he rejoiced the most ?
IT IS 12TH RABIUL AWWAL….
This is the day when ignorant muslims who are fond of introducing new festivals in Islam out of their desire to imitate the practices of other religions rejoice even more than the two Eid’s. Their heart, their mind & their soul is blind where in they don’t realize that they are pleasing the devil by rejoicing with him in the manner he wishes to see.
Don’t they have examples of the most beloved by Allah & his Messenger‘s rightly guided sahabaas ?
If you sincerely wish to rejoice the birth of the best creation of Allah , Muhammed (BPUH) , then do it the way he advised us to do ie… every week & every day by following his teachings and not just once a year!.. Prophet Muhammed (S) was asked about fasting on Mondays and he said, “On that day I was born and on that day revelation came to me.” (Muslim, 1162). So stick to his Sunnah.
Imagine your father dies on his birthday (when the date of birth is not confirmed ) …Will you sing & dance & decorate your home every year on the very same date ?
May Allah Guide each one of us on the guided path & keep us away form such unislamic innovations.
