Permissibility of celebrating Moulaad-dun-Nabi

Question ID: 24600

Dear Mufti,
Salam Alaykum,
I would like to know the ruling on commemorating/celebrating the Moulood-un-Nabi {SWS}, as i see that this trend is spreading in Gauteng masjids under the name of Seerahtun-Nabi {SWS} by allowance of the Jamiatul-Ulema. It wasnt prevalent before in Johannesburg Masjids, and is this not considered a biddah like the Sunni’s commemorate and celebrate?

Also lecturing on auspicious nights, congregational night vigil, congregational Nafl Salaat all come under question.
In order to justify certain differences are made. However we are saying that it is six and half-a-dozen of the other. May Allaah save us.
