‘Eid Milad was introduced by the Ismailis’ – Why is it important to know this?
Of course it is important for those who want to practice this celebration of Milad un Nabi to know about those who introduced this practice!
Here is why:
– The Fatimids lied about their lineage
“There are several opinions concerning the lineage of al-Mahdi, which may be summed up by noting that he was neither Haashimi nor Faatimi [i.e., he was not descended from Banu Haashim or from Faatimah]” (Siyar A’laam al-Nubala’ 15/151)
– They claimed Divinity
“and claims that he is a lord instead of Allaah.” (Siyar A’laam al-Nubala’ 15/155).
– They claimed Prophethood
“When ‘Ubayd-Allaah claimed to be a prophet, he brought two of the faqeehs of Qayrawaan to appear before him as he was sitting on his throne, and he ordered one of his servants to say to the two Shaykhs: “Do you bear witness that this man is the messenger of Allaah?” They said: “By Allaah, if he came to us with the sun on his right and the moon on his left, both of them saying that he was a messenger of Allaah, we would not believe that.” So he ordered that they be slaughtered.” Al-Siyar (14/217).
** Reviling the Sahabas
“He ordered that words reviling the Sahaabah be written on the doors of the mosques and in the streets, and he ordered his state workers to revile them in 395 AH. (Tareekh al-Islam, events of 395 AH, p. 283)
** They incited followers to commit crimes
“They attacked the pilgrims, killing and taking prisoners, and they violated the sanctuary of Allaah in Makkah and took away the Black Stone.” Al-Siyar (15/147).
** Sunni Scholars say they are Heretics.
Al-Qaadi ‘Iyaad (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
Abu Yoosuf al-Ra’eeni said: The scholars in Qayrawaan are unanimously agreed that Banu ‘Ubayd are apostates and heretics.
(Tarteeb al-Madaarik (4/720)
WILL YOU TAKE YOUR RELIGION AND PRACTICE FROM THESE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ABANDONED THE 5 DAILY SALAT, WUDHU AND FASTING, AND MAKE THEIR ‘HOLY DUA’ FACING ANY DIRECTION?
