Things, not mentioned in Quran and Hadith are prohibited?


Question:
Milaadun Nabi, Giyarvin Shareef, 3 days 10 days and 40 days Khatam is not mentioned in Quran or Hadith. How can these practices be allowed in Islam?
Answer:
The rule is, that everything is Halal unless explicitly forbidden (with the exception of few things like meat or woman, they are Haraam originally, meat becomes Halaal with Shar’ee slaughtering and Ghair Mahram woman becomes Halaal with Nikah).
As long as there is no authentic statement from the Qur'an or the Sunnah of the Prophet,صلى الله عليه و سلم that a particular thing is forbidden, then it is considered as Halal.
A Hadith Shareef is mentioned in Tirmizi "Halal is what Allah has made Halaal in His book and Haraam is what He had made Haraam. From what Allah remained silent that is allowed” (Jaami’Al-Tirmizi Abwabullibaas printed by Kutub Khana Rashidia Dehli vol 1 page 206)
Allah says in Quran:
“O believers! Do not ask about matters which, if disclosed to you, , may displease you; and if you ask about them while the Quran is being sent down, they will be disclosed to you; Allah has forgiven these; and Allah is Oft forgiving Most Forbearing.” (Sura tul Maa’idah verse 101)
Dar Qutni reports from Abu Tha’labah Khashni, our beloved Rasool said:
“Undoubtedly Allah غز و جل has made few things obligatory, do not lose your grip on them. And He has made somethings Haraam, do not violate them. He has put some limits, do not cross them. He remaind silent from few things knowingly , do not investigate them” (Sunan Ad- Daar Al-Qutni, Babur Rida’, printed by Nashrus Sunnah Multan, vol 4 page 184)
This rule of Shariah must be remembered always “whatever is proven from Quran and Hadith as good or bad that would be good or bad. And something that is not mentioned, it is forgiven, Jaaiz and permissible. If it is done with some good intentions, it becomes Mustahab like Milaad etc. it is done to increase the love of Rasoolllah and educate Muslim community about the Seerah of beloved Rasool” and to regard things as Haram which are not mentioned in Quran and Hadith contradicts Islamic Shariat.
Allah says in Quran: “and do not say, the lie which your tongues speak- “this is lawful and this is unlawful” in order to fabricate a lie against Allah; indeed those who fabricate lies against Allah will never prosper” (Surah Al- Nahl verse 116)
It is mentioned in Muwahib by Allamah Ahmad Bin Muhammad Qastalani, the commentator of Sahih Bukhari: “doing something (by Rasoolullah or Sahabah) is proof of permissibility but not doing something is not a proof of impermissibility”
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Muhaddithe Dehlavi mentions in Tuhfa Ithna Ashriya: “not doing something is onething but to prohibit is something else” (Tuhfa Ithna Asahariya 10th chapter page 269)
It is mentioned in Fathul Qadir by Muhaqqiq Alal Itlaaq regarding the issue of performing 2 Raka’at Nafl Salah after the Azaan and before the Jamaat of Maghrib : “ not proven from Rasoolullah and from Sahabh, the maximum one can prove that it is not Mustahab. As far as Karahat (disliking) is concerned that would not be proven. To prove Karahat one has to establish another proof of Karaahat” ( Fathul Qadir, Babun Nawaafil, printed by Matbooa’h Nooriya Razvia Sakhar Pakistan)
From these Ayaat and Ahadeeth and Aqwaal of great Ulama, it is clearly understood that this so-called principle “if something is not mentioned in Quran or Hadith, it is prohibited or impermissible” is not an Islamic Shariah based argument, it is a man made law, and is invalid in Shariah.
Therefore, since Milaad, Guyarvin and some other practices of Ahlus Sunnah which are not mentioned in Quran and Hadith are indeed permissible because they are not prohibited. The one who askes proofs from Quran and Hadith for these practices, is totally ignorant of rules of Shariat.
