Firstly, I wish to praise and thank Allah the Almighty, for His Grace and Mercy on bestowing upon me the task of writing this book on
Sallalahu alaihiwa alihi wa sallam – Peace be upon him
).Additionally, without the Blessing
and “Nazr-e-Karam” of Our Master, HolyProphet Muhammad (peace be upon him),
it would have been impossible for me tocomplete my work.Last, but not least, I am most grateful to my Teacher and Father for the moral supporthe has extended to me during the course of writing the manuscript of the book.I acknowledge the use of the books listed in the bibliography section as referencematerial.
I wrote the original script of this book in autumn 1992. Due to studycommitments and for other reasons, it was difficult for me to complete the work andto publish it immediately.Later in 1994, I was most pleased to learn that my
ShaikhHisham M. Kabbani Al-Naqshbandi Al-Haqqani, wrote an invaluable book onMilad entitled
‘Innovation and True Belief: The Celkebration of Mawlid According to Qur’an & Sunnah and the Scholars of Islam’.
I recommend my readers to studythis excellent book, which deals with the subject of Milad-un-Nabi (Sallalahu alaihiwa alihi wa sallam) in a scholarly manner.
