Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen advised:

I say that celebrating the birthday of the Prophet was not [something] known [to have been practiced] by the righteous predecessors.

The rightly guided leaders did not do that, and nor did the [other] companions [of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam)] do that, and nor did those who followed them in good, and nor did the imaams of the Muslims after them.

And here, we ask…do we have more reverence for the Messenger (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) than they did? Answer [my question] O gathering! No [we do not].

Do we have more love for the Messenger (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) than they did? No [we do not].

If the matter is as such, then we must follow suit, and not practise the birthday of the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam); Because it is an innovation.
