Birthday of the Prophet
The specifics regarding the birth of the final Messenger (saw) sent to mankind have been the subject of debate between the scholars of history and Seerah for centuries. This brief treatise by Sheikh Ahmed bin 'Abdil Azeez A-Hamdaan  will aim to present in a concise manner the various opinions regarding the year, month, day and time of his birth as well as the statements of scholars aimed at those who take his (saw) day of birth as a day of celebration. It is brief without going into too much detail simply in an attempt to allow the reader to visualise the vast range of opinions held by various scholars on this issue, which in turn should allow one to ponder over the validity of taking it as a day of celebration bearing in the mind how unspecified the matter at hand is. I have also included a small amount of biographical information for a number of the numerous scholars mentioned.
· A few other lesser known opinions ranging from fifty years before and other than this.
