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

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Jalal ad-Din as-Suyuthi (q.s.) wrote, in Husn al-Maqswad fi Amal al-Mawlid, “The celebration of the Mawlid entails gathering with the people, reading a portion of the Qur’an, citing the narrations about the prophetic precursors to the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) mission and the wondrous signs that took place during his birth, and then eating a bit of food and leaving.  As I see it, this practice is a good innovation that merits Reward.  This is because it is an exaltation of the Prophet’s (s.a.w.) rank and a display of delight and happiness with his noble birth.”
