Fatwa By Shaykh Muqbil Ibn Haadi:Islamic ruling on one celebrating his or hers birthday, his mum or dads birthday, Christmas, the Prophets birthday (Mawlid) or going to someone else’s birthday party: Translated by Taalib Tyson: Taken from Tuth’fartul Mujeeb p66-67

Shaykh Muqbil was asked:

What is the ruling on one celebrating ones birthday or his mother or fathers (birthday) or Christmas or even the Prophets birthday or going to a birthday party of someone else?

He replied:

As for what you have mentioned then this is completely Haraam! And the evidence is in the statement of Allah the Exalted in the Quraan {those who do not witness falsehood}. (These things are no doubt falsehood) so in summary celebrating ones birthday or someone else’s or the Prophets birthday are things only done by the ignorant of us.
