Shaykh al-Albaanee Debates a Supporter of Celebrating the Mawlid

This is an audio translation of a discussion that took place when a follower of Muhammad al-'Alawee came to debate the Muhaddith of our time about the permissibility of celebrating the Prophet's (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) Birthday. As was the norm during the life of Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee (d.1420H), people from various sects and group would often come to debate him and leave defeated, or convinced of the correctness of his 'aqeedah and manhaj. So presents this Arabic-to-English audio recording in hopes of convincing those who have doubts about the unlawfulness and innovation of celebrating the Mawlid that this is an unlawful and innovated celebration - having no connection to the Religion of Islam whatsoever.

NOTE: At [37:26] Shaykh al-Albaanee quotes the famous hadeeth: From 'Abdullaah Ibn Mas'ood (radiyallaahu 'anhu), from the Prophet (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) who said, "The best of people are my generation, then those who follow them, then those who follow them." Related by al-Bukhaaree (no. 2652) and Muslim (no. 2533).

However, the Shaykh quotes it with the wording, "khayrul-quroon" (the best of generations), instead of, "khayrun-naas" (the best of people). Shaykh al-Albaanee himself has mentioned in his notes upon at-Tankeel (2/223), "This is the wording that has become famous upon the tongues..." Then he goes onto to clarify that though this wording has been mentioned repeatedly in the books of Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (d.728H), such as his book al-Furqaan (p. 100), and by his student Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyyah (d.751H) and other Scholars, it is not confirmed by the books of Sunnah. Rather, it is only a narration of the meaning. And Allaah knows best.

Those who Refuse to Marry off Except to their Own Tribe, or for Other than Deen

We have with us some desert people, they do not marry off except within their own tribe. So what is your advice for them?

Our advice for them is that they marry off to those that are suitable, whether they are from their tribe or not, because of the saying of Allaah the most high:

"O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourable of you with Allah is that (believer) who has At-Taqwa [i.e. one of the Muttaqoon (pious - see V.2:2). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware."
(Al-Hujurat 49:13)

And his the Most High's saying:

"And it is He Who has created man from water, and has appointed for him kindred by blood, and kindred by marriage. And your Lord is Ever All-Powerful to do what He will."

(Al-Furqan 25:54)

And the saying of the Prophet, salla Allaahu 'alyhi wa sallam: "All of you are from Adam and Adam is from soil" and other proofs from that chapter that show that suitability is in the deen, not in tribe, linage, money, hierarchy, diplomas, studies, profession or occupation."
