Publisher Comments:

Have you ever wondered: What do the eminent scholars of Isl m have to say about the commemoration of the Prophet's birthday (Mawlid), may blessings and peace be upon him? Is the modern controversy regarding this subject really authentic? The Elite Stand in Honour of the Chosen One by Im m Ahmad Rid Kh n is a treatise that emphatically answers these questions by elaborating on the favourable dispensation accorded to this practice by over a thousand years of Isl mic scholarship. The celebrated author provides detailed evidence on the permissibility and benefit of Mawlid and standing in honour of the Prophet (Qiy m) from authentic books of Isl mic jurisprudence (Fiqh). Multiple legal edicts (Fat w ) of mainstream im ms and scholars are also used in support of this stance. In recent times, some have censured these meritorious acts simply because the Companions and their Successors (Tabi' n) never celebrated the Prophet's birthday, may blessings and peace be upon him. In a masterful demonstration of scholarship, the author refutes this position of the critics using their own evidence and logic.
