  • halloween?

    hi again everyone,

    halloween is around the corner and at my school, you're meant to dress up in your costume. i know halloween isn't celebrated in islam, but its not really a religious thing anyway. is it ok to dress up, but not participate in any halloween events? i used to do this before i started wearing the hijab and i thought it was so fun, but i wouldn't dress up in anything big, i was a cat two years ago-just cat ears and some eyeliner. last year, i was minnie mouse. i just put on mouse ears over my hijab and put a little eyeliner and dressed in polka dots. is it ok to still do this?
    thanks

    A'salamu alaykum. No, sister. We should not celebrate these holidays, they are not a part of our Deen. Masha Allah, now you are older and becoming interested in your Religion so you should be more aware of what is acceptable and what is not. Please keep asking any questions you have. May Allah bless you.

      assalam alaikum, thank you. just another question, does dressing up mean that i am celebrating it? usually people dress up and go to haunted houses and trick or treat, but i don't do that. i am just doing this so that i wouldn't be left out and be the only one that is in the normal uniform, do you get what i mean?

        Muhammad :saw: Said
        "Islam began as something strange and shall return to being something strange, so celebrate the strangers"

        DW about being left out it, Allah is always with us.

          Aww. Sister, many of us feel this way. Glad tidings to the strangers. Sister, you are young and masha Allah very clever for asking questions. In your life, you will encounter various situations which make it difficult to decide between fitting in with society and your peers, or following your Deen (Religion) because many Western ideologies and customs conflict with ours. Dressing up does mean you celebrate it. As Muslims, we should not participate in these "celebrations", and if anyone asks you why you didn't dress up, simply explain to them that your Religion does not permit it. You will lose and gain many friends following your Deen, but like the above user said, Allah is with us and ultimately, our actions are for Paradise, not this world. Do you have any more questions, sister?

            Halloween is rooted in Pagan/Christian traditions so it is in fact got to do with religion. Its a promotion of shirk and kufr, magic etc

            It is 100% haram to participate in it and even more inappropriate for a Muslim woman to dress up in the costumes that associated with halloween because they're completely against the practice of observing proper Hijab.

                  I have never heard an opinion which says muslims should celebrate Halloween.

                  My imam said feel free to distribute candy not on the day of Halloween to kids but not for Halloween but perhaps it will soften the hearts.

                    Your imaam is a jaahil if he said that.

                    Because regardless of the reason, it becomes haraam to do it on that day.

                      Wouldn't giving candy on that day fall under kufr?

                          You are slow, you think I don't know what you wrote. I know exactly what you wrote, and wrote my reply in response to that.

                            If it's given in celebration of the day yes.

                            But if he comes out with some new fangled excuse like is mentioned above then it is haraam, but not kufr.

                            Wallaahu A`lam.

                              Yeah you said my imam is jahil if he said that then said it's haram to give it on that day.

                              It's different than giving it out on another day without the intention or slogan of the day.
