Hadees/Hadith Gathering of the Noble Companions the Sahabah's


Hadees/Hadith Gathering of the Noble Companions the Sahabah's

Gatherings at the Time of the Noble Companions-Sahabah’s

[Radi Allaahu Anhum Ajma'een]:


 Hazrat Imaam al-Nasa'i narrated-

إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم خرج على حلقة يعني من أصحابه ، فقال: ما أجلسكم؟, قالوا: جلسنا ندعو الله, ونحمده على ما هدانا لدينه ومن علينا بك، قال: آلله ما أجلسكم إلا ذلك، قالوا: آلله ما أجلسنا إلا ذلك، قال: أما إني لم أستحلفكم تهمة لكم، وإنما أتاني جبريل عليه السلام, فأخبرني أن الله عز وجل يباهي بكم الملائكة

The Beloved Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam] came to a circle – meaning of his Companions – and said,

“What has made you sit together?”

They said, “We sat to pray to Allaah [Ta'aalaa] and to praise Him for guiding us to His religion, and for blessing us with you.”

 He asked them, “By Allaah, nothing else made you sit together?”

They said, “By Allaah nothing else made us sit together!” He said,

“Know that I did not make you swear on this because I doubted you, but because the Angel Jibraeel [Alaiehis Salaam] came to me and informed me that Allaah Kareem is proudly showing you off to the angels!”

The above Hadees/Hadith is one of the clearest evidences for the permissibility of the Milad/Meelaad Shareef Gatherings [Mehfils], and clearly shows that the companions gathered together to thank Allaah Kareem and give thanks for blessing them with the Holy Prophet

[Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]

Are the Meelaad Shareef gatherings not what is being described in the Hadees?
