What are the Dos and Don’ts of the Prophet’s Birthday?
What are the dos and don’ts of the prophet’s birthday?


In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.


All praise and thanks are due to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger.


Thank you for your good question.


 At all times, we should maintain true love for Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) by living and reviving his Sunnah. So, on the Prophet’s birthday occasion, let’s take care of the following:


 1- Educating ourselves and our families, friends, neighbors, and colleagues about Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) and his message for humanity.


 2- Living and reviving the Sunnah by means of adhering to the Prophet’s guidance in all aspects of our life.


 3- Carrying out our duties towards the Prophet (peace be on him), which are-


a) To believe in Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him),


b) To take him as an example,


c) To obey him,


d) To send blessings on him, and


e) To love him more than anything else, even one’s self.


It goes without saying that we should carry out the above-mentioned duties throughout all months of the year, not only in a single month, week, or day.


On the Prophet’s birthday occasion, and at all times of course, we should avoid disobeying Allah or/and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him). We should not divide our communities. We shouldn’t violate the ethics and values of Islam by any means.


May Allah accept your and our good deeds, ameen.


Allah Almighty knows best.
