Reference: Fataawa Noor ‘alad-Darb – Question No.6346, Pages 180-181, Volume 12

Question: I am asking about the congregational supplication after the prayer, where the imaam supplicates and the rest [of the congregation] respond [by saying] ‘aameen’. [Does Allaah] respond to the supplication done in this manner? Continue reading

نوروز كا جشن منانا

اول:

النيروز معرب كلمہ ہے يعنى يہ عربى كلمہ نہيں بلكہ دوسرى زبان سے ليا گيا ہے، اور يہ فارسى زبان كا كلمہ ہے جو نوروز سے ماخوذ ہے جس كا معنى نيا دن ہے، اور يہ فارسيوں كے تہواروں ميں سے ايك تہوار اور جشن ہے، بلكہ يہ ان كے عظيم جشن ميں شامل ہوتا ہے، كہا جاتا ہے كہ اس جشن كو سب سے پہلے منانے والا شخص فارسيوں كے قديم بادشاہوں ميں” جمشيد ” نامى شخص ہے اور اسے ” جمشاد ” ميں كہا جاتا ہے.

Making du’aa’ after the obligatory prayers is bid’ah

Praise be to Allaah.

It says in Fatawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah :
Making du’aa’ after the obligatory prayers is not Sunnah if it is done by raising the hands, whether that is done by the imam alone or a member of the congregation alone, or it is done by them both together. Rather that is bid’ah, because it was not narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) or any of his companions (may Allaah be pleased with them) did that. With regard to making du’aa’ without doing that (raising the hands etc.), there is nothing wrong with it, because there are some ahaadeeth concerning that.

Why some people accept and some unaccept the celebration of the prophet?

Praise be to Allah

There is nothing in the Qur’aan to say that we should celebrate the Mawlid or birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The Prophet himself (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not do this or command anyone to do it, either during his lifetime or after his death. Indeed, he told them not to exaggerate about him as the Christians had exaggerated about Jesus (upon whom be peace). He said: “Do not exaggerate about me as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam. I am only a slave, so say, ‘The slave of Allaah and His Messenger.’” (Reported by al-Bukhaari). What has been reported is that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) made the day of his birth a day of worship, which is different to celebration. He was asked about fasting on Mondays, and he said: “That is the day on which I was born and the day on which I was entrusted with the Mission or when I was first given Revelation.” (Reported by Muslim, al-Nisaa’i and Abu Dawood).
Moreover, we know that the Sahaabah (may Allaah be pleased with them) were the people who loved the Prophet most. Was it reported that Abu Bakr, who was the closest of people to him and the one who loved him the most, celebrated the birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? Was it reported that ‘Umar, who ruled for twelve years, or ‘Uthmaan, did this? Was it reported that ‘Ali, his relative and foster son, did this? Was it reported that any of the Sahaabah did this? No, by Allaah! Is it because they were not aware of its importance, or did they not truly love the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)? No one would say such a thing except one who has gone astray and is leading others astray.
