The Ruling on celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam)
Question:

What is the ruling upon celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam) in the month of Rabee’ ul Awwal, as a means of extolling him – sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam?
Answer:

Extolling the Prophet and venerating him is only through: eemaan in everything with which he came from Allaah, and following his sharee’ah – in aqeedah (creed), and speech, and action, and manners – and leaving off innovating in the religion.

And celebrating the birthday of the Prophet (sal Allaahu alaiyhi wa sallam) is from innovating in the religion.

And with Allaah is the tawfeeq. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.
