Our topic of discussion is “BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION,”We have two opinion polls,
(A)Some of us think that there is no harm in celebration
(B)While others think we shouldn’t celebrate&I belongs to the this category.
& as I never celebrate birthday so I will talk about the disadvantages of Birthday celebration ,because I am against of birthday celebration..
First of all we should know the routes of the custom which we are celebrating,in other words ,what arguments do I have to celebrate it or not?
So here are my points..
(1)As we are Alhumdolilah Muslims,so first of all I will talk about Islamic point of view.
According to Islamic teachings,there are no any evidences to celebrate it that’swhy I will say it is “Unislamic”.The question arises how????
And answere is very simple,these birthday celebrations involve imitation of the Jews and Christians in their birthday celebrations. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), warn us against following their ways and traditions: “You would follow the ways of those who came before you step by step, to such an extent that if they were to enter a lizard’s hole, you would enter it too.” They said, “O Messenger of Allaah, (do you mean) the Jews and Christians?” He said, “Who else?” (Reported by al-Bukhaari and Muslim). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also said: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”
(2)Another important point is that on this occasion there is a wastage of money.According to some people “Birthday celebration is a source of enjoyment&there is no mater to celebrate it”
But according to islam”Extravagance is an evil dead&people who extravagates are supposed to be brother of SHAITAAN(Devil).
And it is forbidden by Allah SWT to extravagate,so think about it
Do we feel enjoyment in disobedience of Allah SWT????
(3) Another point is that according to my thinking ,it is a way of enjoyment for only those persons,which have no any aim in life...
