Mawlid 1437

Irshad Soofi



At the dawn of creation, according to the Quran in 3:81. God Almighty assembled all the Prophets and made a covenant with them:

وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللَّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّينَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُمْ مِنْ كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَاءَكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُصَدِّقٌ لِمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنْصُرُنَّهُ ۚ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَىٰ ذَٰلِكُمْ إِصْرِي ۖ قَالُوا أَقْرَرْنَا ۚ قَالَ فَاشْهَدُوا وَأَنَا مَعَكُمْ مِنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ

‘When I send to you the book and wisdom & after your mission then will come a particular Messenger of mine, testifying to the truth of your mission. You will most surely pledge to him & help him. He said, “Do you acknowledge & accept My bond on this condition?” They replied: “We accept this mission.” Said He: “Then be witness to this covenant & I am the other witness to this covenant’. Here our beloved Prophet ‎ﷺ‎‬ has been singled out as a unique personality. The verse means that the Prophets had to build the foundation so that the last Prophet would present Islam in its perfect form. The gathering was of Prophets. The speaker was God. The topic was the Birth of the Prophet Muhammad ‎[peace on him, his family and companions]‎‬. So gathering & speaking of the Prophets Birth is the Practice of God (Sunnate Ilahi)
