Dear Islamic brothers! Remember! Celebrating Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi is a sacred act and those who celebrate it are blessed with countless Islamic and worldly mercies. It is stated in Tafseer Ruh-ul-Bayan that the blessings of a blessed gathering of Milad remains in the home throughout the year. (Ruh-ul-Bayan, vol. 9, pp. 57) Similarly, Sayyiduna Imam Qastalani رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said, ‘One of the proven blessings of celebrating Milad of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is that peace and tranquillity prevails throughout the year. May Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ have mercy on the one who celebrates the nights of the Milad month like Eid.’ (Al-Mawahib-ul-Ladunniyyah, vol. 1, pp. 148)
One who celebrates Milad has been given the good news of Paradise in addition to worldly blessings. Shaykh-e-Muhaqqiq, Sayyiduna Shah ‘Abdul Haq Muhaddis Dihlvi رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه has said: Those who celebrate in the night of the arrival of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم are rewarded as Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ will make them enter Jannat-ul-Na’eem by His grace and blessing.
Muslims always celebrate the blessed birth of the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم by cooking food, inviting guests and giving Sadaqah (charity) in abundance. They express their happiness, spend whole-heartedly, hold Zikr of the birth of the Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, decorate their houses and Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ showers His blessings on them due to all these blessed deeds.’ (Masabata min-As-Sunnah, pp. 74)
