Mufti Abdul-'Azeez (حفظه الله) Rejects Salman al-Awdah's Fatwa on Birthdays

JEDDAH: Celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries has no base in Islam, Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al-Alsheikh has said. ...

"Such a call is against righteousness. A Muslim should thank Almighty Allah if his children are healthy and if his married life is stable as the years pass by. He should say: Alhamdu Lillah for His generosity and kindness," said Al-Alsheikh, who is also the chairman of the Council of Senior Scholars and the head of the Presidency for Scientific Research and Religious Edicts (Dar Al-Ifta). ...

Al-Alsheikh, who is the highest religious authority in the Kingdom, said Muslims only have two official celebrations - Eid Al-Fitr, which is celebrated at the end of Ramadan, and Eid Al-Adha, which is celebrated on Dhul Hijjah 10. He added that Muslims also have a weekly Eid, which is Friday.

The mufti said that the celebration of other occasions such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries and mother's day were un-Islamic.

Several prominent Muslim scholars have supported the mufti, adding that celebrating such occasions is in imitation of people of the Jewish and Christian faiths.
