Celebrating Eid Milad un Nabi in light of Quran and Sunnah

on 12th date of Islamic month Rabi ul awal that is birth date of Holy Prophet Muhammad Saw Eid Milad Un Nabi is celebrated. Some people celebrate it as a third eid and do different things such as making mountains, brightening many lights. but i will be discussing Eid Milad un Nabi in light of Quran and Sunnah.This day came in life of Prophet Muhammad Saw 63 times, during Nabuwat 23 times but did ever Prophet Muhammad saw celebrated it? it came twice in Khilafat of Abu Bakar r.a, 10 times in Khilafat of Umar r.a, 12 times in Khilafat of Usman r.a and 4 times in Khilafat of Ali r.a did any one of them ever celebrated this day? Even Holy Prophet Saw never told date of his birth and also there are different dates mentioned of birth of Rasool Allah Saw by different people.

According to Abdul Qadir Jilani r.a Holy Prophet saw was born on 9th Rabi ul awal. lets see what Holy Prophet Saw said about his birthday and what he did on it. Rasool Allah saw said in a hadith i fast on Mondy because i was born on this day so if someone wants to show his happiness on birth of Holy Prophet saw he must Fast on Monday instead of creating new things in religion because Rasool Allah saw said whoever creates any new thing in our religion he is not from us and is mardood so this Hadith proves that creating any new thing in Islam is against Sunnah and if we really want to celebrate the happiness of birth of Rasool Allah saw we must Fast. May Allah Swt help us all in following the Sunnah of Rasool Allah saw.
