Birthday: Celebrate or Not to Celebrate

By Maryam Hedayat | | 27 Apr 2013

Is celebrating birthdays forbidden?  Why is it frowned?  Isn’t it just simple fun and enjoyment?

We only invite friends and have a meal. Aren't we even allowed to celebrate anything? We only exchange gifts! Are exchanging presents improper?


On celebrating the Prophet's birthday [pbuh]

By Dr. Abdullah bin Bayyah | Translated by Suhaib Webb


The celebration of the birthday of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is an issue of controversy amongst the scholars. Thus, there were some who considered it a disliked innovation, a few even saying it reached the level of prohibition, and there were others who considered it a praiseworthy innovation.
