'Sufi' group rejects Deoband fatwa against celebrating Prophet's birthday

By Faisal Fareed, TwoCircles.net,

Lucknow: A prominent Muslim 'Sufi' group refused to accept the recent fatwa by Darul Uloom, Deoband in which the Islamic seminary had termed the birthday celebrations including that of Prophet Mohammad as un-Islamic.

Rejecting the fatwa, the All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB)- an umbrella organisations of 'sufi' Muslims, claimed that Deoband seminary is imposing foreign ideology of Saudi Arabia.

"We in India are peace loving. We express our joys by celebrating birthdays of our loved ones. Prophet Mohammad's birth day on 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal is celebrated by muslims as Eid-Miladun-Nabi to show their love. There is no harm in celebrating the birthdays," said General Secretary, AIUMB, Maulana Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichauchhawi.

The cleric who was in the city on Thursday claimed that Deoband seminary is imposing Saudi Arabian ideology while most of the Muslims are liberal and adhere to Sufism in India.

The cleric even cited from Islamic scriptures for substantiating his claim. He also stated that Muslims everywhere in the world rejoice on Prophet's birthday while 54 muslim countries have declared it as a holiday. "Only Saudi Arabia and Israel do not allow such celebrations and do not observe holiday," he said.

The AIUMB during its recent Mahapanchayat at Moradabad has openly opposed Deoband's functioning and its hardline approach towards Islam.

Voices of dissent against Deoband seminary are also being raised by several other organisations. One such organisation, All India Mohammadi Mission too has rejected the decree. "The fatwa by Deoband is a move to divide Muslims. The issue is immaterial as muslims have been celebrating Prophet's birthday since ages," said president of the organisation, Syed Ayoob Ashraf.

The controversy cropped up when country's biggest Islamic seminary, Darul Uloom, Deoband at Saharanpur, in reply to a question by a student
of Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) termed the birthday celebrations as un-Islamic. The AMU student had filed the querry over the birthday celebrations of AMU's founder Sir Syed Ahmed Khan at the university.



Deoband Fatwa

I fully support All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board's opposition to the Deoband fatwa. However much Deoband may deny it, it has become an instrument of Saudi extremist ideologies such as Wahabism. Islam in India is moderate, peaceful and sensible. Let us keep it that way.

Islam is Universal.

Islam is universal, the religion of Allah and Prophet Mohammad SAW,
there is no monopoly of harder Islam of Saudi idiots and so called moderate Indian Islam.
The Ulemas particularly from UP region either from Deoband or Barelvi have divided Islam for their own worldly interest and nothing else.

Wait... did this guy really

Wait... did this guy really just say that only Saudi Arabia and *Israel* ban milad an-nabi? That's the silliest thing I've heard. Saudi, sure... but Israel? This is a really lame attempt to exploit anti-Israeli sentiment and associate Deoband with Israel in some bizarre way. It makes no sense.

Worst enemies!

Deoband hypocritical are worst than Israelis, they are open enemies.
These Deobandis are hidden lot of hypocrites!

Ummatan wahidah

//Rejecting the fatwa, the All India Ulema and Mashaikh Board (AIUMB)- an umbrella organisations of 'sufi' Muslims,//
Islam is one Muslims are one
You are saying "Sufi Muslims" is not correct.
Already we have " Sunni Muslim", "Shia Muslim",
Wahabi Muslim", "Moderate Muslim" , "liberal Muslim"
Now the term "Sufi Muslim "coined by you .
What is your plan? What are you trying to make "Ummah"?

Must watch

The ummah is slaughtered

The ummah is slaughtered right and left across the world, and these morons are doing nothing but causing hatred between fellow Muslims.

Stop Fatwa-Bazi!

These Deoband idiots must stop issuing humbug fatwas every then and now.

People in the above comments

People in the above comments are not discussing whether Deoband rightly or wrongly decreed against Mawlidun Nabi. But they are just making absurd comments.If Overwhelming majority of Ulemas and Scholars have supported the Mawlid celebrations as lawful and if it is celebrated in all Muslims countries as Official Public Holiday then We have every right to ask Deoband to explain whta Ideology it is imporing? which Islam it is Propagating?

Only wahabis and Deobandis are against Mawlid consisting of 2-3% of Muslim Ummah.Then common Muslim should understand what is the truth.

Maulana Dr. Saood Alam QASMI a very reputed Deoband scholar and head
of Islamic theology at AMU is also regular speaker in sir syed Day and
EidMiladUnabi celebrations at Aligarh University ,he has never
declared both these days as UnIslamic.

Darul Uloom has organised Golden Jubilee celebration on the 100 th
annivarsary of Deoband Madarsa in which several Politians have
participated.Jamiat Ulema e Hind regularly leads MiladUnNabi
procession at Kanpur U.P.which proves the double standards of these

Hypocrisy by Deobandis!

Leave a side birth celebration,
These hypocrite Deobandi wahabis are against even Quran-Khawani and Dua-E-Maghfirat. They oppose it for common people but if any Deobandi Ulema died, they declared holiday in their seminary and forcefully gathered the students to recite Quran-Khawani and next day publicized the photograph of the same. They celebrate birthday for their own kids, participate in birthday celebration of their near and dear, eat and enjoy cake, ice cream and Biryani and oppose to memorise the services of prophet Mohammad SAW. for mankind.
Wearing half mast pyjama,skull cap and holding shabby bag in their hand, by knocking the doors, mostly eve teaser thinking themselves the sole custodian of Islam.
Shame to them, who oppose the celebration of Eid-E-Milad Un-Nabi SAW.

Really Shame on them , They

Really Shame on them , They are target less people , Cant know the actual power of Nabi (SAW) That he is NOOR ALA NOOR ...,who given the truth way . Deobandi kitna pyaar karte hain Nabi se ye dikhta hai unke Birthday k discussion se. Ask anybody whether they go for this type of discussion for their Children .
And what they know about ALAHAZRAT ..nothing Jishne poori life Nabi SAW ke ISK mein kurbaan kar di ...Jisne DOLI Udhane wale se puri mahfil mein Mafi Maingi Kuinki vo Syed tha aur USKO Doli mein baithakar khud shoulder lagaya....Nabi ki Cast ka tha Isliye .......Isko Bolte hain Iske RaSOL... Just read the books written by ALAHAZRAT before commmenting about HIM.

What is wrong in it?

There is no harm observing and celebrating the birthday of Prophet Mohammad SAW. with due respect and dignified way. This day we can pray more and more and make Duas to Allah Subhantallah that he sent to us the messenger SAW on that particular day. We must wear the best cloths and eat the best and offers alms to our poor brother, WHAT IS WRONG IN IT, IDIOT HYPOCRITE DEOBANDIS?

First of All THE birthdate of

First of All
THE birthdate of Prophet is not confirmed many scholars have said 8 and many said it was 9 and also 12th
Why there is such difference in date of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him (only reason is it was not celebrated in Salf saleheen)
The Prophet left this world on 12 of Rabiul Awwal .Now if you are celebrating birth day of prophet actually Shaitan is encouraging you people celebrate that Day on which PROPHET LEFT THIS WORLD (IN REALITY YOU ARE CELEBRATING THE DISMISSAL OF Prophet from this world(Nauzubillah)
If your son's birthday is on 5 jan after some year he died on same date i.e on 5 jan will you celebrate that day (infact Barsi is famous is Barelwy and shia)
When you dont celebrate the birthday of your child how can you do it for The birth day as well as the day of death as eid
Blaming Deoband is in the blood of bloody Ahmad raza's chamche jab ustaad hi sahi nahitha to shagird kahan se sahi honge
Think again and Stop celebrating the day on which Prophet Left the World only Shaitaans do that !!!!!!
Prophet never asked to do so
Companion of Prophet never did
Neither companion of Sahaba did?
Neither our SALF DID IT
so u mean they were wrong and you consider with Israel???
What a shame on stupids like you

what a stupid argument


When you are not sure of the birth date of the prophet but you are sure of what ever is written passed on you and hate other belief. What a moron you are ?


Sahaba Karam(raziallanhuma)loved Prophet Muhammad(saas)more than their ownself,but never ever celebrated
Birthday Miladunnabi.In fact all these sufi darga worshipping Baddattis are copying Christians and Hindus in cellebrating bithday.
hindus and christians are afraid that people will forget Jesus and hindu leaders like
Shivaji Ambedkar Etc so at least once in a year they want to remember.
muslims on the contrary remember Prophet and shower blessings daily innumberable times!
if celebrating birthdays was lawful Sahaba karam would never have missed such opportunity.
These sufis biddattis always innnovate thinking that islam is still incomplete Deen.
shame on all Biddattis Rasoo(saas)will turn his face away from such Biddattis.


If you not know exact date of birthday of prophet sallahu alai hu wasallam how can say that he leaves the world on the same days and u r wrong sahaba karam radiallahu azmain also celebrate the milan and according hadees sharif nabi karim sallahu alai wasallam said every prophet are alive they are immortal our aqida that he is alive why we mourne for them.

I challenge you to qoute one

I challenge you to qoute one hadith which says sahaba karam raziallanhum celebrated PROPHETS SALLAHUALAIHIWSALLAM birthday.
Dont loose your Imaan by claiming this not claimed by any of our aslaf.Guard your islam from falling prey to satans tactics of promoting bidats.As bidat is a sin which muslims do it as good nothing and not repent,Wheras other sins everyione knows that these are sins so repent and forgiven by Allah.But bidats no one repent as they thinlk this to be a virtue.

deobandis Wahabis

All deobandis this is to let you all know that if u all can celebrate birthdays of khabees like sir sayed and even a kafir like Thanvi and ganghoi and your own children then why do all Wahabis,deobandis and 24 number have an objection against millions of people celebrating the birth of our beloved prophet ..its upon a person to compare who is a true Muslim . Is it one who does not have charm on his face atall or is it a true lover of our prophet mohammed.if u don't won't to celebrate don't its your choice but remember Sunnis don't get Riyals and dollars to run an organization or a madarsa and neither do we want to ware a Barmuda and neither kurta to go to villages and convert Muslims into deobandis and

It is said in Holy Book that

It is said in Holy Book that 72 diffirent section will be there, so what is the fuss. And these sensitive issues should only be dealt by highly respectable Maulanas, so that bad name is not given to religion. Secondly, when we cant control our own children, so how come we can dictate our public.

Islam is still with us! Learn to avoid fighting.

Allah Sub-haan-hu Ta'ala says in Al-Qur'aan, Surah An-Nisaa', Surah 4, Aayah 65:

"But no, by your Lord, they will not [truly] believe until they make you, [O Muhammad], judge concerning that over which they dispute among themselves and then find within themselves no discomfort from what you have judged and submit in [full, willing] submission."

Further in Surah Ar-Room, Surah 30, Aayah 32:

"of those who have divided their religion and become sects, every faction rejoicing in what it has."

Surah An'aam, Surah 6, Aayah 159:

"Indeed, those who have divided their religion and become sects - you, [O Muhammad], are not [associated] with them in anything. Their affair is only [left] to Allah ; then He will inform them about what they used to do."

By Allah, my beloved Nabi Salawa Tullahi Wassalaamu Alaih has left us with Islam whose nights are full of light like its days. Only that person whose destruction is certain will leave and follow either his desires or whims or majority.

He Salawa Tullahi Wassalaamu 'alaih also said, "Kullu bani Aadam khattayoon, wa khaira khattaayeen at-tawwaboon." Every son of Adam is sinful; and the best of sinful are the ones who repent."
Mistakes happen. It is also our duty to learn the Deen. Unless a person konws what Allah, his Lord says in the Qur'aan, it is very unlikely to debate with him.

Lillahi, know, may Allah have mercy upon us all, KNOW ALLAH, LEARN ISLAM and LEARN THE SEERAH OF NABI SAL ALLAHU 'ALAIHI WASALLAM. And see the TRUTH with your own heart, mind and eyes.

Surah Fussilat, Surah 41, Aayah 53:

"We will show them Our signs in the horizons and within themselves until it becomes clear to them that it is the truth. But is it not sufficient concerning your Lord that He is, over all things, a Witness?"

"Rabbi Zidni 'Ilmaa." "My Lord, increase me in knowledge." [Surah Taha, Surah 20, Aayah 114]

this idiot deobandi r very

this idiot deobandi r very keen to celebrate "hindu festivals" like diwali, holi, kite flying days, garba etc..bt when it comes to show love to prophet Muhammad (sallallaho alaihi wasallam) then their face becomes distorted..they shout shirk,biddat etc..even though they donot know the meaning of ths words...those who want to have debate with us (ahl e sunnat wal jammat, maslak e Ala hazrat ) come to facebook groups "nida e haq " ...insha'Allah we will prove our aqeeda in light of quran and hadith and sunnat as this is nt right place to debate..
