Apa Beza Mother's day dan Independence Day

Saya tak dapat melihat beza Hari Ibu, Hari Guru, Hari Merdeka, Hari Buruh dan lain-lain.
Kalau nak kata haram sambut mother's day, maka katakan jua haram sambut hari merdeka etc.
Dan saya lagi cenderung tak mengapa nak sambut pun, ia tidak ada beza dengan sambut hari lahir, hari buruh, hari merdeka, anniversary perkahwinan etc.
Janganlah nak berhujah dangkal yang kena sayang ibu bapa setiap hari. Ingat mereka yang sambut mother's day tu sayang ibu mereka pada hari mother's day sahajakah?

Di sini saya lampirkan beberapa fatwa. Saya tak menolak pun memang ada ulama yang menentang tapi, ingat mereka bukan hanya menentang mother;s day, mereka juga menentang labour day, independence day, dan lain-lain kerana bagi mereka hanya ada dua festival iaitu raya haji dan raya puasa. Maka jika anda nak ikut fatwa mereka, jangan ikut part mother's day sahaja, ikut juga dalam part2 festival yg lain sebab alasan mereka menolak adalah sama.

Di bawah ini ialah fatwa berkaitan anniversary, birthday, dan kita boleh apply utk mother;s day, teacher's day etc selagi mana ia bukan perayaan agama:

Question: I would like to know if it is permissible in Islam for a married couple to celebrate their wedding anniversary.
Answered by Sheikh Sâmî al-Mâjid

After a careful study of the rulings pertaining to unlawful festivals and holidays, it appears to me that these rulings concern those occassions that have a single date for all the people in society – like all of the people residing in the country or who are attibuted to it – so that the day that is specified for the festival is a conspicuous, public event where the people make a public show of joy and celebration. Such festivals and holidays resemble the `îd days in Islam, and such are the holidays that are prohibited, in my opinion.

The prohibition of such days is evidenced by the hadîth where the Prophet (peace be upon him) arrived at Madinah and found that they had two festive days wherein they would play and enjoy themselves.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Allah – Most Blessed and High – has replaced them with what is better: `Îd al-Fitr and `Îd al-Adhâ.” (Sunan Abî Dâwûd (1134) and Sunan al-Nasâ’î (1556))

It is only such festivals that are celebrated by everyone on a particular day that have the qualities that resemble the `îd celebrations.

As for a person celebrating the occasion of his wedding anniversary with his wife, I do not see this as coming under the ruling of prohibited festivals. Its day is different for different couples. Therefore, it is in no way comparable to the `îd days of Islam. Each couple celebrates their marriage on a different day.

The difference between general public festivals and such particular, personal days is that with respect to the personal days, the days themselves are generally not sanctified and considered sacrosanct and there is not a wholesale public display of festivity.

Therefore, I tend to the view that there is nothing wrong with a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary as long as they do not copy the particular practices of the non-Muslims in doing so, like lighting candles for each year that they were married.
And Allah knows best.

Question: What is the ruling on celebrating birthdays?
Answered by Sheikh Salman al-Oadah If you mean celebrating the likes of the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) or Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him), then this is clearly unlawful. Such festive days are newly contrived innovations that conflict with the dictates of Islamic Law.

Such rites are from the traditions of the People of the Book. They have a devotional purpose and are carried out seeking nearness to Allah. This is the reason I view such occasions to be unlawful and prohibited.
