Question
assalamoalaaikum !!
im 22 year old..i lived my most of life out of Pakistan
in Pakistan..people celebrate Eid Milaad unn Nabi on 12 rabi ul awwal with graet zeal n zest..they do lightings of green colour mostly..play naat shareef on loud speakers..hold celebrations n processions..
is that right at this huge level?
sahaba e karaam dint practised all these..according to my knowledge..
in arab countries I didn't see any such thing on a huge scale like this
so is this bidd'aa??

Answer
It is a bidat.
However sometime that's all they know and it takes time for them to learn the right thing- millions over the eyars have be guided away from these customs- so be patient and learn wisdom as to how to deal with it- sit at the feet of wise scholars.
