Muḥammad's Birthday Festival: Early History in the Central Muslim Lands and Development in the Muslim West Until the 10th/16th Century

Cover
BRILL, 1993 - 183 Seiten
This is the first monograph in Western Orientalism entirely devoted to the history of the birthday festival of the Prophet Mu?ammad (Arab. "mawlid al-nab?"). On the basis of historical sources, Chapters 1 and 2 examine what is known on the history of this festival in the Middle East until the beginning of the 7th/13th century. In Chapter 3 the existence of different views on the origin of the "mawlid" within Islam itself is examined. It is shown that these different opinions on the origin of the mawlid follows from discussions on the permissibility of its celebration. The rest of the book (Chapters 4 - 8) deals with the mawlid in the Western Muslim world up to the beginning of the 10th/16th century. The following dynasties are treated respectively: the 'Azafids of Ceuta, the Mar?nids and the Wa sids, the Nasrids, the 'Abd al-W?dids and the ?afsids.
