Mawlid gatherings in itself is permissible and a good deed. It bring baraka and rahma as has been verified by many sunni scholars and even Imdadullah muhajir makki, the grand peer of deobandis. Mulla Ali qari rh said, offering food during such gathering is also a good act. Alhamdulillah, we held many mawlid gathering, recited mawlud , read out hadith describing blessed birth of prophet sal allahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam. We distributed fruits, warm clothing and pamphlets in local language among muslims and non muslims with teachings of prophet alayhis salam, such as paradise is under mothers feet, take care of your neighbors etc. All the wahabbis were silent. We took out juloos during day time, held jalsa at night. No girls, no drum. All as per shariah. Today when orientalists and wahabbis are trying to show disrespect to prophet alayhis salam, sunnis should work hard to conduct mawlid mehfil round the year with grand preparation. Scholars and learned people should be invited so that people don't do wrong things. Wrong things need to be stopped, mawlid should not be criticized. We need to criticize saudi wahhbi attack on yemen.
