    (Fatwa: 875/865/B=9/1438)

    Those who do not support the Barailvi sect they call them the supporter of Shaikh Abdul Wahab Najdi and label them as Wahabi. Neither the companions celebrated the Eid Milad al-Nabi whereas they loved the holy Prophet Muhammad (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) the most, nor the Tabiyen celebrated it nor our four Imams. This celebration was started 600 years later by someone. Hence the celebration of Eid Milad al-Nabi is not proved from the Shariah, it should be forsaken.
