Yes it is not only allowed but also highly recommended to celebrate the birth of the most humble servants of Allah who guided people to the Right path and enlightened life of millions of people. The Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) is the greatest human being who guided billions of people to the way of real noble life in this world and hereafter. He was ordered by Allah (SWT) to celebrate the birth of his daughter (So, pray to Your Lord and Sacrifice) Sura 108, verse 2.

Those Wahabis who claim that it is not permissible to celebrate the birth anniversary of the Prophet celebrated the anniversary of their Wahabi state.

Muslims love the Prophet more than any one else and feel happy when they remember him, that it why Muslims celebrated and still celebrate this happy anniversary. Many scholars wrote books in support of this good practice.

Even the Prophet (SAWA) used to celebrate his birthday which was on Monday by fasting on Monday.
