Can we celebrate birthdays or attend birthday parties? This issue has divided scholars.
Some say we should only stick to our religious holidays, ‘Eid al-Fitr and ‘Eid al-Adha.
However, some scholars say birthdays are not religious so we should be more flexible when it comes to celebrating non-religious occasions.
It is better to avoid where you can but if you feel pressure then it is permissible. Allah knows best.
