Is it permissible to partake in the celebrations of the Prophet’s ﷺ birthday?
And is everyone who celebrates it considered a Mushrik?
Celebrating the Mawlid (the Prophet’s ﷺ birthday) is an newly introduced innovation, innovated by the ‘Ubaydi Shī’ah.
And every innovation is misguidance, prohibited.
And not every person that celebrates it perpetrates Shirk.
❗️But the extreme Sufis and Shī’ah and their ilk practice revolting types of Shirk in it.
