Hafizh ibn Katsir (r.a.) on the Permissibility & Commendability of Mawlid

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Hafizh ibn Katsir (r.a.) was a muhaddits, and a student of Shaykh ibn Taymiyyah (r.a.).  Hafizh ibn Katsir (r.a.), in the last days of his life, wrote a book entitled Mawlid Rasulullah, which was spread far and wide.  That book mentioned the permissibility and commendability of celebrating the Mawlid.  Hafizh ibn Katsir (r.a.) wrote, “The night of the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) birth is a magnificent, noble, blessed and holy night, a night of bliss for the believers, pure, radiant with lights and of immeasurable price.”
