Imam as-Suyuthi (q.s.) on the Reality of Mawlid

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuthi (q.s.) wrote, in al-Hawi li al-Fatawi, “The reality of Mawlid is that people gather to recite Qur’an to the extent that is easy, also to discuss narrations regarding Prophet (s.a.w.), the signs which took place on his birth; then dining is arranged for them and they return without adding anything more to this bid’at al-hasanah.  The one who arranges it gets tsawab due to honouring Prophet (s.a.w.) and showing gratitude on his birth.”
