Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm,
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ
(Qur’ān 21:107). ‘Wa-mā arsalnāka illā raḥmatan li-l-‘ālamīn, ‘And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.’ Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is describing the attribute of our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan and says, “We sent him as mercy to universes.” Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is honoring our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam in Qur’an ‘Azimu sh-Shan.
As there is honoring of our Holy Prophet ﷺ from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla everywhere, it is Fard for us to honor him as well. It is Fard to love him ﷺ. Those who don’t love him ﷺ don’t love Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla. Who doesn’t love him ﷺ? Shaytans don’t love him ﷺ and those who are with shaytan don’t love him ﷺ. We should always praise our Holy Prophet ﷺ and even more in this month. It is the month of Mawlid Sharif. It is the month when he ﷺ honored this world with his ﷺ presence.
There are beautiful Mawlids written by different nations according to them. There are ones written by Arabs, Turks; everyone has their own. But this beautiful Mawlid written in the Ottoman Empire, Mawlid of Süleyman Çelebi Efendi is more spiritual and very high. Everyone wants to listen to it. And everyone’s love increases with it. It becomes better. It is found in different languages too. But as the one who wrote it was honored by the Himmah (support) of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, it has a more beautiful influence.
There are idiot people, not people but crooked scholars nowadays or people who listen to them. They say Mawlid is Bid’ah or whatever. Mawlid can never be Bid’ah because people gather and recite Mawlid for the the pleasure of Allah ﷻ and for the love of our Holy Prophet ﷺ. Even if you read it alone, you still attain that pleasure. You both make Salawat and honor him ﷺ. Therefore, it is something that shaytans and those together with shaytan dislike the most.
There are many people who say all kinds of bad words in order to confuse people. But those who listen to them don’t gain, they lose. Because the love of our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam is what will save us. Our deeds cannot save us. Our deeds don’t resemble anything and are useless. What is useful is the love of our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.
Therefore, telling about the beautiful life of our Holy Prophet ﷺ since his ﷺ birth and before his ﷺ birth, about his ﷺ light bring light and Thawab. It increases our ranks insha’Allah. May Allah ﷻ bless us. May our love to our Holy Prophet salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam increase insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
