1slamic_reminders For some reason, I thought of writing on "birthdays" today. Why? Because it's thee biggest bid'ah going on in the world. Yes, birthday is a BID'AH. Forget about celebrating our beloved Prophet Muhammad's 'birthdays', it's NOT ALLOW to celebrate ones own birthday.

In Shaa Allah I'll try to explain the origin and true nature of birthdays. Of course many contemporary, secularized people will object and say that “birthdays” no longer have any religious significance. Although, many of the ancient pagan ritual are maintained and preserved in modern celebrations.

However if you claim to be a Muslim, especially after you become aware that the word “secular” has the same definition as `irjaa(separating beliefs from actions, i.e. separating public actions from privately held beliefs(religion)). Yet “religion” is, from the Latin “religare”, “that which binds”, thus making Secular Humanism a religion in its own right.

Here we go... Originally the idea of Birthdays was rooted in magic. Spells were used for good and evil on birthdays as it is believed one's personal spirit is present at this time. The dreams on the eve of birthdays are remembered, for they are supposed to be predictions of the future (shirk) brought by the guardian spirits. - The Lore of Birthdays, Linton, p. 20

Birthday greetings have power for good or ill because one is closer to the spirit world on this day. -The Lore of Birthdays, Linton, p. 20

The giving of birthday gifts is a custom associated with the offering of sacrifices to pagan gods on their birthdays - ibid

The traditional birthday cake and candles also have their origin in ancient pagan idol worship. The Greeks celebrated the birthday of their moon goddess, Artemis, with cakes adorned with lighted candles…” - Do Birthdays Have Pagan Origins?, Bob Theil.

Furthermore, the book “The Lore of Birthdays” (New York, 1952) by Ralph and Adelin Linton, on pages 8, 18-20 had this to say:

The Greeks believed that everyone had a protective spirit or DEMON (jinn) who attended his birth and watched over him in life. This spirit had a mystic relation with the god on whose birthday the individual was born.
