In Islamic history, the sacred house in which the Beloved and Blessed صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم was born was called ‘مَولُدُ النَّبِی صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم’ (i.e. the birthplace of the Holy Nabi). It is an extremely sacred place. The Muslim emperors had a splendid building constructed at this blessed site where Muslims from all over the world including Makkah and Madinah would hold the gatherings of Milad day and night, reciting Salat and Salam. Shah Waliyyullah Sahib Muhaddis Dihlvi رَضِىَ اللهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُ stated in his book ‘Fuyood-ul-Haramayn’: I once reverently attended the Milad-gathering held in Makkah Mukarramah on 12 Rabi’-ul-Awwal at the birthplace of the Holy Nabi صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم . While the blessed birth was being mentioned, I suddenly saw Noors rising from the gathering. I thought about the Noors and found out that they were the Noors of the Divine mercy and of those angels who attended those gatherings.
After the Najdis occupied Hijaz, they demolished the domes constructed over the graves of Jannat-ul-Ma’la and Jannat-ul-Baqi’. They also demolished this sacred monument [i.e. building] which then lay in ruins for many years. In June 1959, I went to behold this sacred and blessed place, so I saw a small building which was locked. Some Arabs told me that the building had a small library and an office in it. Neither could anyone hold a Milad-gathering there nor was it allowed to recite Salat and Salam there. Standing a short distance away from the building along with my companions, I secretly recited Salat and Salam. I became overwhelmed and I continued to cry for a little while.
