1) why is maulidur Rasul not an ibadah when what you are doing is only selawat/having islamic talks???
2) if u say it is bid'ah and not ibadah, then to celebrate ur children's birthday is bid'ah as well & u say u follow Q & S, well is celebrating ur child's birthday stated in the Quran nor a Sunnah (done by Rasulullah)??
3) even so, bid'ah has two types. hasanah (good - does not oppose Q & S) and sayi'ah (bad - opposes Q & A). in anyway does Maulidur Rasul opposes Q & S? it depends on how u do it actually.
"And we ordained in the hearts of those who followed him Compassion and Mercy. But the Monasticism which they innovated for themselves which we did not prescribe for them"
Surah Al Hadeed, verse 27"
This verse points out that when something new is invented to please Allah Ta'ala then it is permissible, and Allah Ta'ala gives reward for it. Those who do not fulfil the requirements then Allah Ta'ala will not reward them.
Rasulullah [May Allah bless Him and grant Him peace] stated: "The person who introduced a good thing in Islam, shall obtain the reward for it and also the reward for those who adopt it. As for the one who introduces a bad thing (Bid'ah Sayyi ah) he will obtain the punishment for introducing it and also for those who adopt it, will also be punished."
(Sahih Muslim in Kitaab-uz-Zakaat Tirmidhee chapter Eleleven).

I am back, the last time I posted was in August 2010, quite a long time. Well I was quite busy and still am busy. Only now I have the "time" and the blogging spirit. hehe
In November 2010 I went back to Malaysia with my family for my Aunt's wedding. I was the ?????. It was just a short stay, my mum and sisters went back after 1 month and me after 2 months. However I did not come back alone, I came back with my GRANDMOTHER!!! It's her first time travelling to Yemen and it has been about 30 years since she last traveled overseas! It wasn't easy to convince her to come with me, it was all very very last minute confirmation, last minute tickets, last minute shopping (since it is winter at that time so we had to go buy some winter wear for her). Of course we were very happy that she's coming to visit us and all. She stayed with us for 1 month, 1 month is quite a long period for my grandmother. We wanted to keep her longer but had to give in to her request in the end.
Alhamdulillah I have finished 21 juz of the Qur'an. Now memorizing Surah Al-Baqarah, Insha Allah will finish by end of June and then Insha Allah I will start Tafseer and Hadeeth classes if the Sheikhs is available.
That's all my update is for this time. I shall post another one soon Insha Allah.
