Mawlid un Nabi: To Celebrate or Not?

posted in: Events/Classes | 3


Muhammed ﷺ is the final Prophet of Islam and followed by billions of Muslims around the world who believe that following his example will lead to their salvation in the hereafter. Muslims profess their love for the Prophet ﷺ and by doing so they are manifesting their faith.  However some Muslims have fallen into great sin and transgression by performing acts of worship out of love of the Prophet ﷺ which were not sanctioned by him.

One of these actions is celebrating the birthday of the Prophet ﷺ or commonly known as the Mawlid un Nabi. The Luton Islamic Centre will hold a series of lectures on Sunday 26th November 2017 in order to teach the community about the reasons why it is haraam (impermissible) to celebrate the Mawlid un Nabi based on the Quran and authentic ahadith of the Prophet ﷺ.

Some of the topics that will be covered:

  • The history of the Mawlid and when it began
  • What scholars in the past have said about celebrating Mawlid
  • The evolution and influence of non Muslim culture upon Mawlid
  • Questions and answers


5:30 – 6:00pm Food will be served for all guests
6:00 – 7:15pm Urdu Talk – Professor Abdul Rahman Ateeq
7:45 – 9:00pm English Talk – Ustadh Abdul Rahman Hassan


Please note: we will break for Salatul Ishaa at 7:30pm

All brothers and sisters are welcome to attend.

    Unfortunately I missed the talk but I would love to hear something on how to give dawah to those who do mawlid. Some of us have family, friends and neighbors who participate and celebrate this day and it’s often a sensitive topic. Maybe an online article or leaflet on how to approach this, short/long term strategy on how to move them away from bidah.

    Assalamu alaikum,

    Can you let me know why many mosques are doing the black and white zig zag on their mosque. Is this a secret symbolism and where are the first people who used this.

    I know it looks like a chess board black and white. Is this linked to shaytan but people are unaware, you can find information how this is used in dark arts, beyond our understanding.

    These are artists who have used, spread everywhere to stop this nonsense.and go back to green

    JazakAllah khayran

      Sister, does it matter that the dome of the Masjid is in a black and white zigzag ?
      It’s true that the black and white symbolism is much used in the occult but so are many things ? The occult also use cube and other shape symbolism but does that mean we shouldn’t have these in our homes or even look at them? I have a beautiful model of the Kaaba as well as a model of the Qubbah al Saqrah (Dome of the Rock) at home.
