now dats confused me even more. this argument is saying that any sort of new innovation is wrong but surely dats not trure. in a milad people recite the Qura'n...send blessings to the Prophet and read naats and namaaz together. It is a day of worship....n also a day in which youth like myself refocus on our religion n its importance in our lives. is that such a wrong thng to do ?? surely if such events do not involve forbidden thngs such as intermingling of the sexes...then they are not wrong? surely getting people together to worship and talk about their faith and recall stories of the life of the Prophet for children is a good thng??

There are different views on the matter.  So you have to weigh it carefully.  I personally don't do it, but others do.  One thing to keep in mind, is that when Shaytan wants to lead people astray he does not do it by telling them to do things that are obviously wrong (like go kill that person over there, it's ok).  He does it by whispering things that seem good but in truth are not. 

All of the things you mentioned can and should be done at any time of the year... we should not need a special day to do that.

It's true that any newly introduced ritual or form of worship is considered bid'ah and is strictly forbidden in Islam ..

"And beware of newly invented matters, for every newly invented thing is an innovation, and every innovation is a misguidance."
"Whoever invents in this affair of ours what is not from it, then it is rejected."

I was looking at the link and noticed that a lot of the argument for malwid here is that there are other innovations that we do and so we should be able to do this too.  It sort of sounds like 'but mom!  all the  kids are doing it!'

Most of the things on the list of accepted innovations were done by sahaaba. They should know best what would have been accepted and ok.  One of them was putting the Qu'ran into a book.. The Prophet (saws) always had people write it down, so I don't see this as such a problem...

anyway just a few thoughts
