Many sectarian Muslims celebrate the birthday of Prophet Muhammad by decorating the mosques and houses with lights and other decoration. These sectarians waste money on this event they claim that they are showing love of Prophet Muhammad. On this day they commemorate Prophet Muhammad more than Allah. But the question that is important here is should they celebrate Birthday of Prophet Muhammad on 12th Rabi Ul Awal or not?

To answer this question here are some important points below one by one;

1- It is not 100% confirmed that Prophet Muhammad was born on 12th Rabi Ul Awal. We found different dates in the history. According to Abdul Qadir Jilani Prophet was born on 9th Rabi Ul Awal.

2- Prophet never himself told the date on which he was born.

3- Prophet never celebrated his birthday.

4- Sahaba never celebrated birthday of Prophet and not done anything special on 9th or 12th Rabi Ul Awal unlike many of us do.

6- Eid Milad Un Nabi which is declared third Eid by some people is an invention which was created centuries after Prophet’s death. We find nothing like Eid Milad Un Nabi in Hadiths.

7- In One Hadith Prophet said i fast on Monday because i was born on this day. This Hadith only mentioned Fasting. It does not say invent Bid’ahs which are done on 12th Rabi Ul Awal by some people.

8- Some people say we are celebrating birthday of Prophet in his love. If this is so why Sahaba not celebrated birthday of Prophet?

9- Festivals of Eid Ul Fitr and Eid Ul Adha are not mentioned in the Quran then how we can create a new Eid?

I think these nine points are enough to prove that there is no place for Eid Milad Un Nabi in Islam and its a Bidah (invention) In Islam. If we really Love Prophet we should follow his teachings which is the Quran alone.

That is the real love !


Allah send peace upon the birth of different Messengers. Angels brought good news from Allah of a child to different messengers also to Mother of Isa and Moses. So there is nothing wrong with celebrating birth days of messengers but we do not know the accurate dates of birth of different messengers.


19:15 And peace be upon him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the Day he is resurrected alive.


19:33 “And peace be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the Day I am resurrected alive.”

19:34 Such was Jesus, son of Mary, and this is the truth of the matter in which they doubt.

Quran does not Prohibit Birthdays, Anniversaries, Valentine Days and other festivals as long as they do not violate the commandments of Allah.
