Muhammad’s father’s name was Abdullah and mother’s name was Amina Bibi. It is believed that Allah gave the knowledge of Quran to Muhammad. Only then did he spread the message of the Holy Quran Sharif/Masjid. Mawlid was celebrated by the ruling clan of Egypt in the 11th century.
Allah is worshiped and prayed throughout this day. Clan leaders give speeches and recite verses from the Holy Quran. The most recent form of observance of this day began in the 12th century, when countries such as Syria, Turkey, Morocco and Spain began to observe it. Sunni and Shia, the two major sects of Islam, celebrate the occasion on different days in the same month. Sunnis celebrate the day on the 12th of the month, while Shias celebrate it on the 17th.
Why Is Eid ul-Milad (Eid-e-Milad 2021) Celebrated According to Muslims?
According to historians the exact date of his birth is unknown, but Muslims believe that he was born in the year 570 AD. Muslim communities, Shias and Sunnis, always have their own distinct styles of celebrating the Eid-e-Milad festival. People of the Shia Muslim community celebrate this festival because on this day Prophet Muhammad chose Hazrat Ali as his successor. But on the other hand, the Sunni community mourns the death of Prophet Mohammad on this day.
Is Eid-e-Milad Allowed in Islam?
No. The Prophet of Islam, Hazrat Mohammed, was the Messenger of God, who inspired all to perform a variety of religious practices, viz., to do Namaz (prayer) and to perform the worship of one God. He provided Kalma, Roja, and Bang-Azan to his followers for the Bandagi (worship) of Allah.
- But are we following the path indicated by Hazrat Muhammad?
- Are we walking on the basis of knowledge of Allah given in the Holy Quran Sharif?
Because there is no command of Allah to celebrate Eid ul-Milad in Quran Sharif. So, we should not be conservative in this but be thoughtful. Because in the Holy Quran Sharif Surat Ikhlaas 112 Ayat 1 to 4, it is clearly stated that Allah is neither born nor does He die; He is immortal. Then on what basis do all of us celebrate Eid-e-Milad?
That God appeared 600 years ago in Kashi (Varanasi), Uttar Pradesh for 120 years. He came in His Body and went with His Body. Allah is Akbar (Kabir) and no one. He never took birth from a mother’s womb, and He never dies. God has given His spiritual knowledge through Hazrat Mohammed Saheb in the Quran Sharif Surat Furqan 25 Ayat 52 to 59 that asked him to get the correct way of worship of God from someone else who knows God well.
Who Is That Bakhabar Today?
In Quran Sharif Ayat 25:59, it is being asked to get the information of Allah from a Bakhabar, He should be fully aware of the creation of the universe. He will be the only one in the world who will be fully aware of the information of Allah. At present, no one else is that Bakhabar, except Jagatguru Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj.
Because today He is the only Greatman who knows the sacred scriptures of all the religions. He is the Last Prophet of Allah Kabir in reality. He tells knowledge on the basis of the Holy Books of different religions, which is creating a new revolution of ideology in society. Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj says that the texts of all religions are pointing to the same God i.e. Allah, who is the Master of all of us who created all the universes. He is the only imperishable God. Kabir God is the Supreme God in all religions. The evidence of which is also found in Ayat 1A, 2A, 3A, 6, and 7 of Fazail-e-Zikr in the Fazail-e-Amaal.
Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj says:
Our Race is Living being, Mankind is our Religion |
Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, Christian, there is no separate Religion ||
Baakhabar Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj Is Showing True Worship of True Allah
We all are the children of one Father Kabir Parmeshwar. We have divided ourselves on the basis of different castes and religions. But with the knowledge of Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj Ji, we will all be one, by which we will be able to recognize God Kabir Ji in the Form of Saint Rampal Ji. He is building a civilized society and refuting the heartfelt wrong deeds of the different religions like killing animals.
