It is only natural that dogs bark. Especially when it comes to the mawlid. Recall when Abu Usamah from Birmingham issued a £500 pound challenge for anybody to prove from the Qur’an and the Sunnah that the mawlid is a valid action. We, with Allah’s success displayed one ayah and one hadeeth, and allured to many other evidences that serve as the ultimate proof.
We even knocked him on the head with statements of the great mujaddideen regarding their positions on bid’ah lughwiyyah and their direct comments in support of the mawlid, and praise of the people who do it. Yet still today, they have not deposited that five hundred pounds into my account.
I have learned from this lesson that they will only reject and mock the evidences, just as the mushrikeen were willing to reject the Prophet, sal allahu ‘alayhi wasallam, despite knowing deep down in their hearts of hearts that what they was staring at was the absolute truth.
Again, we see the same war that the jahiliyah have waged upon traditional Islam in nothing but blatant hypocrisy against the true lovers of the Messenger of Allah, sal Allahu ‘alayhi wasallam. We have also seen seemingly sunnis blowing their trumpets to the Wahhabi tune in claim that the Wahhabis should not be refuted, like their position is simply a matter of ikhtilaaf. We can only say that snakes of the same skin slither together.
This is a matter of orthodoxy and heterodoxy, and the celebration of the mawlid serves as a measuring stick to separate the wheat from the chaff. The challenge must always be posed, exactly when did mawlid become haram? What are the evidences that this celebration is haram? and do show us the consistency of your revivers from each century up until today who have dubbed the mawlid as an misguided and haram act.
If the Wahhabiyyah cannot meet this simple challenge, then know they are the innovation that the Prophet, sal Allahu ‘alayhi wasallam, warned us against.
I did not really intend to speak so much in this thread, but words just began to flow. My intention was to share this video of our esteemed brother doing what must be done to refute these circus clowns who play with the religion like it was a cheap one pound toy.
