Meelad Equaling Hajj

Q: Is it true that if you go for 11 meelads it is equivalent to 1 Hajj?

A: It is not true that attending 11 meelads is equivalent to 1 Hajj. Any virtue for good deeds must be established from Quran or Sunnah. There is no mention in the Quran of meelad at all, and meelaad never existed in the time of Rasoolullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) nor in the time of the Sahaba. So it was impossible for such a virtue being mentioned. This is totally fabricated and false. We cannot make up our own virtues for certain practices.

And Allah Ta’ala knows best
