In the celebration of Prophet (Pbuh) Birth, 3 Flags were Placed


In the celebration of His birth 3 flags were placed

The great Hadith-expert Imam Jalaluddin ‘Abdur Rahman bin Abu Bakr Suyuti (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has written in Khasais-e-Kubra and Imam Ahmad bin Muhammad Qustullani (May Allah shower His mercy on him) has written in Mawahib Ladunniyya:

Translation: Syeda Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) says: I saw that 3 flags were placed at the time of His birth, one in the east, one in the west and one on the Ka’aba. (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 82; Al Mawahib Al Ladunniyya, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 125)

A flag was placed on the Ka’aba to show to the world that until now 360 idols were placed in and around the Ka’aba. Falsehood was worshipped there, but now that Great Prophet (Peace be upon him) has come who will clear the Ka’aba of all filth and will make it the direction in which all people will turn to pray.

By placing flags in the east and the west, it is being suggested that this is the birth of that Prophet whose rule and authority will encompass the whole world and that He will be sent as a Prophet to all the creation. The Hadith also support this. Thus, there is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:

Translation: Hadhrat ‘Uqbah Ibn Aamir (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: Indeed, I have been granted the keys to all the treasures of the earth. (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 3596)

There is a Hadith in Sahih Muslim:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) said:  I have been sent as a Prophet towards all creation and Prophethood has been culminated with me. (Sahih Muslim, Hadith No. 1195)

Hazrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) says:

Translation: When the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) was born, a call was given:Tour Him through all the earth.Somebody said:Be glad!Hadhrat Muhammad Mustafa (Peace be upon him) has occupied the whole world. All the creation of the world has wholeheartedly entered His rule. (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 82)

Imam Bayhaqi and Imam Abu Nu’aim (May Allah shower His mercy on them) have related:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Hassaan bin Thabit (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says: I was an intelligent child of 7, 8 years of age. I saw that at dawn a Jew of Yathrib stood on the roof of his fort and started calling out: O Jews! The surrounding Jews gathered around him. People said:  Woe on you! Why do you shout? He said: The star of Ahmed has risen, who was going to be born this night. (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 77)

Imam Baihaqi, Imam Tabarani, Imam Abu Nu’aim, Imam Ibn Asaker (May Allah shower His mercy on them) relate:

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat ‘Uthman bin Abul A’as (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says: My mother told me: I was with Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) that night when the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) was born. Whatever I would see in the house, it would appear radiant. I saw that the stars were coming closer and closer so much so that I thought they would fall on me. Then when Hadhrat Amina (May Allah be well pleased with her) delivered. Such a radiance issued forth from her that all the rooms and the whole house became radiant and I couldn’t see anything apart from the radiance. (Khasais-e-Kubra, Vol. 1, Pg. No. 78)
