Maulid nabiyy (SAW) is compulsory to every muslim, because those that are celebrating it are not celebrating it because of anybody or anything (not for money, appretiation etc) but only FOR THE PROPHET'S LOVE. The love of the Prophet is Obligatory on every Muslim. Those regarding Maulid as bid'a are selfish, because everyday you will do bid'a atleast 10times from the time you wake up till the time you will sleep. what about bid'as like (Tafseer of Holy Qur'an, Women School's to mention but a few, lifting your trouser to your knee, as the salafi's did in nigeria) has the prophet or sahabas did any of these???
Wallahu ta'ala a'alam
