The First Milad Un Nabee Gathering & the Holy Quraan/Koran





The Noble Quraan clearly states that Almighty Allaah, the Most Glorified and Exalted is He, assembled all the souls in the spiritual world and said as stated in the following verse:

وَإِذْ أَخَذَ رَبُّكَ مِن بَنِي آدَمَ مِن ظُهُورِهِمْ ذُرِّيَّتَهُمْ وَأَشْهَدَهُمْ عَلَى أَنفُسِهِمْ أَلَسْتَ بِرَبِّكُمْ قَالُواْ بَلَى شَهِدْنَا أَن تَقُولُواْ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّا كُنَّا عَنْ هَذَا غَافِلِينَ



“And remember when your Lord brought forth the generations from the backs of the Descendants of [Hazrat] Aadam,and made them their own witness.

[Al-Quraan, Chapter al-Aa’raf 7:172]


After this, another Oath was taken. This second spiritual meeting was specific to the Prophets and Messengers and has been reported in the Holy Quraan in the following verse:


وَإِذْ أَخَذَ اللّهُ مِيثَاقَ النَّبِيِّيْنَ لَمَا آتَيْتُكُم مِّن كِتَابٍ وَحِكْمَةٍ ثُمَّ جَاءكُمْ رَسُولٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّمَا مَعَكُمْ لَتُؤْمِنُنَّ بِهِ وَلَتَنصُرُنَّهُ قَالَ أَأَقْرَرْتُمْ وَأَخَذْتُمْ عَلَى ذَلِكُمْ إِصْرِي قَالُواْ أَقْرَرْنَا قَالَ فَاشْهَدُواْ وَأَنَاْ مَعَكُم مِّنَ الشَّاهِدِينَ ٨١

“And Remember when Allaah took a Covenant from the


‘If I give you the Book and knowledge and the (promised) Noble Messenger [Prophet Muhammed ] comes to you, confirming the Books you possess, you shall positively, definitely believe in him and you shall positively, definitely help him’; He said, ‘Do you agree, and accept My binding responsibility in this matter?’

 They all answered, ‘We agree’; He said, ‘Then bear witness amongst yourselves, and I Myself am a witness with you.’”

[Al-Quraan, Chapter Aal Imraan 3:81]

It is interesting to note that in the above verse Allaah Almighty made it compulsory on the Prophets to have faith in and to help the Holy Prophet. This indicates the magnificence of the Holy Prophet. If one ponders on the philosophy of this verse and analyzes it, it is seen that for His own Lordship Allaah Almighty only asked the people about it, but for the Prophet hood and love of His Beloved , Allaah Almighty made much emphasis making all the Prophets and Messengers witnesses to each other and Himself became a Witness, saying that if anyone moves away after accepting this oath, they have rejected the command.

This was the first spiritual gathering [Mehfil-e-Meelaad Un Nabi] commemorating the birth of the Holy Prophet in which Allaah Almighty announced the venerable personality of the Holy Prophet. This spiritual gathering was established by Allaah Almighty Himself. It is therefore clear then that to establish a gathering to remember the Prophet is a Sunnah [practice] of Allaah Almighty Himself. It is there- fore clear from this Quraanic Studies that Allaah Almighty exalted the name of His Beloved by instituting this spiritual gathering. And He Almighty bound the Prophets and Messengers to listen to the Zikr/Dhikr of His Beloved, to believe in Him and to help Him. This shows that the Prophet’s

Prophethood was established and the Prophets and Messengers became His Ummah and the Prophet was then sent to the earth as the last Prophet, just like a Chief Honorable Guest is slated to speak at the end, saving the best for last.
