Starting Good Practices Is Also Good

After a detailed discussion showing that the Shariah allows Salaam, standing, feeding people on the occasion of Eid Milad, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam invites those against to think and reflect:

 

Translation: Regardless of that starting of these new practices is allowed by the Shariah, as given in Hadith which means whoever starts a good practice will be rewarded for his task and will also be given the reward for those who follow it and on the one who starts bad things will be the sin of himself and of those who follow him.

 

Look carefully, there is no restriction that this will happen only in the blessed era (of the Companions, the Tabi’en and the Tabe Tabi’en), but it is an open command.  If this is restricted to the blessed era, then those who start evil will get a very good help, they will say that the way the reward for starting good things is restricted to the blessed era, in the same way the punishment for starting something bad is also restricted to the blessed era.  Thus, only one interpretation can be accepted for this Hadith.  In this case, this Hadith will mean that all the evil things started after the blessed era will not be considered evil, although this is wrong.  This shows that the way evil started in whatever era is to be condemned, in the same way starting good started in any era is to be praised.  To sum up, if Maulood is a Bida’at, even then it is a Bida’at-E-Hasana, (a good innovation) whose permission is granted by the Shariah.
