Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) Ordered His Ummah to Relate His Life & Death
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) said, “My life is a great good for you; you will relate about me and it will be related to you. And my death is a great good for you; your actions will be presented to me,” meaning that it will be presented him in his grave, “and if I see goodness, I will praise Allah, and if see other than that, I will ask Forgiveness of him.”
This hadits is cited by Qadhi ‘Iyadh (r.a.) in his ash-Shifa’. Imam as-Suyuthi (q.s.) wrote, in his Manahil asw-Swafa fi Takhrij Ahadits ash-Shifa’, “ibn Abi ‘Usamah cited it in his Musnad from the hadits of Bakr ibn ‘Abdullah al-Mazni, and al-Bazzar from the hadits of ibn Mas`ud with a swahih chain.” And this is why we have the Mawlid.
