“What’s wrong with celebrating the Prophet’s (salallahu alaihi wasallam) birthday?” people scream, “We love him! You’re just another hater!”
Insha-Allah, I’ll discuss this “love” and the Valentine’s day love in tomorrow’s post. [It was supposed to be today’s post but I was unable to work on it. Sorry.]
For now, I’ll leave you with an article and a saying.
Here’s the article:
Ruling on celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam) by Shaikh Muhammad Salih Al-Munajjid
As for the saying, it’s in Arabic but the translation is as follows:
(True) love is in following and not in innovating.
Ponder over it.
I just came across these nice points of benefit. They’re basically questions that were asked to some shuyookh (plural of “shaikh”). Each of them is only a few minutes long but they’re very deep, maashaa-Allah.
The questions and answers are all in Arabic but don’t worry, everything has been translated!
[Note: For those who want to improve their Arabic listening skills, this is a good chance.]
