With regard to mawlidh, its origin is from other cultures and religions, that is seen in buddha’s birthday, christmas, and so on….. On these days they praise the particular person too much, likewise our fellows also praise the prophet SAW too much , which is forbidden.. Bid’ah
He SAW said: “Do not exaggerate about me as the Christians exaggerated about the son of Maryam. I am only a slave, so say, ‘The slave of Allaah and His Messenger.’” (Bukhaari).
And praising him only on that day is wrong, bcz it means that you are giving significance to his birthday.
no persons birthday or death is significant in islam!!!!
If they do praise the prophet within the preview of the sharia it ok. but there are many many words of shirk and kufr in the mawlidh they sing.
With regard to birthday, birthday too is a form other culture.
The Romans enthusiastically celebrated birthdays with hedonistic parties and generous presents and other many other nations also…….
you can see that through out the history of the world but not in the history of rasool SAW and companions RA.
