A Baseless Celebration

The great scholar, Muḥammad ibn ʿAlī Al-Shawkānī, said:

Up until now, I have [still] not found any proof establishing [the validity of celebrating the Prophet’s ﷺ birthday in Islam] from the Qur’an, Sunnah, ijmāʿ [scholarly consensus], qiyās [deduction by analogy], or istidlāl [any other kind of proof].

In fact, Muslims have always been in agreement that this [practice] never existed during the time of the best of generations, nor that of those who came after them, nor that of those who came after [that second generation].

Al-Fath Ar-Rabbaani, 2/1087, as quoted by Shaikh ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī.
