In Soorah Maryam (part 16) the Holy Qur'aan speaks about Hazrat 'Ieesaa and Hazrat Yahya (Alaiehimus Salaam) thus:
"And (Salaam) salutations be on the day they were born, and the day they departed salutations this world, and the day when they will be raised up".
I would ask the propagandists at the "Honey Dew", if ALLAAH's salutation be on days when
Hazrat 'Ieesaa and Hazrat Yahya (Alaiehimus Salaam)
were born and departed and will be raised up, should they not be then counted among the
"Days of ALLAAH". All men of Faith believe these days to be the "Days of ALLAAH".
Woe be to the thinking that refuses to acknowledge the importance of the day of the birth of ALLAAH's Prophets. Even of the greatest of all Prophets, Hazrat Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaiehi wa Sallam), as the "Days of ALLAAH", and would not believe in expressing joy and giving thanks in remembrance of ALLAAH's greatest grace and mercy! And this after having seen that Allaah, as the Qur'aan says, sends His salutations on the day when Hazrat 'Ieesaa and Hazrat Yahya (Alaiehimus Salaam) were born. May ALLAAH Ta’alaa protects us from such deviations and such deviationist! Aameen.

This proves that the birthdays of Prophets (peace be upon them) are declared Blessed days by Allaah Kareem and Prophets themselves. It is for this reason that Prophets’ birthdays are very important and significant days.(Alaiehimus Salaam)

Every nation remembers birth or death of their guide/leader and arranges public meetings / gatherings so that successive generations of their people become aware of their leader and benefit from his life, personal traits and achievements. Such occasions help people in many ways, particularly in doing good deeds and remain united.
People also celebrate and remember important events of their history and show happiness and pride for their past achievements. The annual pilgrimage of Hajj is also a remembrance and celebration for all Muslims of the world who gather at Makkah al-Mukarramah, Mina, Arafaat and Madinah al-Munawwaraa and show their solidarity towards Islaam.
Quraan and Ahadees are full of the remembrance of the births of Prophets like  Hazrat Aadam ( علیھ السلا م ),  Hazrat Moosa ( علیھ السلا م ), Hazrat Ieesaa ( علیھ السلا م ),  Hazrat Yahyaa ( علیھ السلا م ), etc.
Similarly, we have been commanded by Qur'aan and Ahadees to celebrate Meelaad Un Nabi (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم).
It is in Qur'aan –
اذْكُرُوا نِعْمَةَ اللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ إِذْ جَعَلَ فِيكُمْ أَنبِيَاءَ
(Meaning – Remember and express with gratitude the gracefulness of Allaah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) that He sent Prophets among you (Al-Maa’ida – 20).
In the above Quraanic verses Allaah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) has commanded people to celebrate the births of Prophets who were sent for the guidance of their nations. Therefore, the celebration of the Birth of Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), as a show of gratitude and happiness towards Allaah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) is mandatory by the whole world as he was sent as mercy for all the worlds in this Cosmos.
It is in Quraan –
وَمَا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَةً لِّلْعَالَمِينَ
[ Meaning – We have not sent you (O’Prophet – صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) except for the mercy on all the worlds] (Al-Ambiyaa-107).

It is in Quraan –
قُلْ بِفَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِ فَبِذَ‌ٰلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُوا
[Meaning – Say O’Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) for Allaah’s (سبحانہ و تعا لی) mercy and beneficence (O’Believers) you celebrate the happiness. (Younus -58)
It is in Quran –
وَسَلَامٌ عَلَيْهِ يَوْمَ وُلِدَ وَيَوْمَ يَمُوتُ وَيَوْمَ يُبْعَثُ حَيًّا
( Meaning – And Salaam is on Him the day when he was born and the day when he will die and the day when he will be raised alive.”
