MAWLID SHERRIF/ MILAD-UN-NABI (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)
Celebrating the Mawlid, What do you say? Let’s find together.
What is the Mawlid: The Mawlid is a joyful event during which Muslims gather to thank Allah for sending Prophet Muhammad, peace on him. The Muslims commemorate this event repeatedly every year on the 12th of Rabee` al’Awwal, which is the day when the Prophet was born. During this event, the Muslims come together, recite Qur’an, praise the Prophet, speak about the honorable life of the Prophet and his attributes, learn about Islam, and do Sadaka.

And Indeed everyone rejoices except for Shaytan and his counterparts, because:
Translation: Iblis cried loudly four times, First when Allah declared him as cursed, Second when he was thrown out, Third When Prophet (Salallahoalaihiwasalam) was born and Fourth when Surah al-Fatiha was revealed [Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah wan-Nihayah, Volume No. 2, Page No. 166]

Muslims rejoice on birth of Prophet (Peace & Blessings be upon him) because Allah has told us to rejoice on His"Bounties and Mercies"

Qur'an states:-قُلْ بِفَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِ فَبِذَلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُوا هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ
Translation: Say: "In the bounty of Allah. And in His Mercy, in that "LET THEM REJOICE" : that is better than the (wealth) they hoard (Surah Yunus, 10:58)

Some might think in their wildest of imaginations that birth and arrival of Prophet (salallahoalaihiwasalam) is not a mercy, some even falsely limit the Mercies of Allah by saying that mercy mentioned here does not refer to Prophet Muhammad (salallahoalaihiwasalam) thus we should not rejoice, so in reply to such people the best answer is found in Tafsir of Qur'an through Qur'an itself.Qur'an states at another place:وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِلْعَالَمِينَ
Translation: We have not sent you but as a “Mercy to the worlds” (Surah al-Anbiya, 21:107)
Istadlal from Ahadith
Book 006, Number 2606 (Sahih Muslim)
Abu Qatada Ansari (Allah be pleased with him) reported that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on Monday, whereupon he said: It is (the day) when I was born and revelation was sent down to me. This Hadith is also reported in by Imam al-Bahayqiin his “Sunnanul Kubra” (Vol. 4, pg. 300 Hadith no 8182, 8259), It is clear from this Hadith that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) is very happy about the day of his birth and so fasted out of gratitude. Fasting is a form of worship, so one can celebrate this day by any form of ibada. One can fast or hold gatherings or provide food to the poor, all being acts of worship to Allah only.

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 38: (SahihBukhari)
Narrated 'Ursa; Thuwaiba was the freed slave girl of Abu Lahb whom he had manumitted. When Abu Lahb died, one of his relatives saw him in a dream in a very bad state and asked him,"What have you encountered?" Abu Lahb said, "I have not found any rest since I left you, except that I have been given water to drink in this (the space between his thumb and other fingers) and that is because of my manumitting Thuwaiba."
Abu Lahab freed Thuwaiba on joy at birth of Prophet (salallahoalaihiwasalam), even the worst of Kufaar and greatest of enemies is given relaxation in his Adhaab due to freeing Thawaiba by pointing with his finger, so Imagine the situation of a momin who rejoices on Mawlid.
Istadlal from Ulama:
Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (Rahimuhullah) writes:
Translation: The reality of Mawlid is that people gather to recite Quran to the extent and to discuss narrations which are regarding Prophet (salallahoalaihiwasalam), the signs which took place on his birth. Then dinning is arranged for them and they return without adding anything more to this "Bidat al Hasanah". The one who arranges it gets Thawab due to honoring Prophet (salallahoalaihiwasalam) and showing gratitude on his birth [As-Suyuti – Rahimuhullah in Al HawililFatawi, Volume 1, Page No. 292, Published by Maktaba al Asriya, Beirut, Lebanon]

Therefore, in the light of above,even if assuming Sahaba or Tabiyeen did not do it (although no proof of Nafi exists) then there are many things which were not practiced by Sahaba and Tabiyeen, but later Ulama derived rulings on them looking at the principles, Therefore If anything does not contradict the principles of Shariah then it has always been allowed, for example the knowledge of Asma ur Rijaal, putting Araab (punctuation) on Qur'an, Building minarts on mosques, etc... The point is that their Asl is found in Shariah, similarly the Asl for rejoicing on Mawlid is found in Qur'an itself let alone Sunnah where it is definitely found too.The reality behind words of Prophet (Peace be upon him), the Bidahs which Prophet forbade were all new innovations which contradicted shariah, the dalil for this could be found in Sahih Bukhari. Volume 3, Book 49, Number 861: (Sahih Bukhari)

Narrated Aisha: Allah's Apostle said, "If somebody innovates something which is not in harmony with the principles of our religion, that thing is rejected."
The Important Usool
We know the caliph `Umar Ibn alKhattab gathered the Muslims and assigned an imam for them to pray the Taraweeh Prayer in congregation. When he saw them the next day praying behind the imam in congregation he said: نِعْمَت البِدعةُ هذِهwhich means: "What a good innovation that is!" `Umar (ra) used the explicit term (البدعة innovation) in his praise. If all innovations were misguided, `Umar (ra) would not have innovated this practice, nor expressed this praise.)" refer to SahihBukhari in KitabutTarawih..this is proof that every bidah is not bad.

Above all Uthman bin Affan (ra) started the second Adhaan for Jumma had every bidah been evil then our pious predecessors would not have contradicted themselves, had word Bidah been only bad then Sayyidna Umar (RA) would have used wording "Ni'malSunnat" rather than Ni'amlBidatu"

Initially, Qur’an was written with letters like theب, ت, ث and ى, which did nothave dots above or below them. The practice of distinguishingbetween the letters by using the dots notation began by alHasanalBisriyy after the time of the Prophet (SWAS)

During the era of the followers of the Companions Yahya bin Ya`mur was the first to put the tashkeel on the letters of Qur’an. Today, Qur’an is recited using these signs without objection.

Muslims added the mihrab (semi-circular, hollow structure which shows the qiblah) to the mosques including the mosque of the Prophet in Madinah.
