Halloween- Do Muslims Celebrate it?


Halloween- Do Muslims Celebrate it?


Halloween originated from Pagan festival called Samhain, which was celebrated by the Ancient Celts of Ireland, Wales and Scotland. The Christian festival of ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ occurred around the same time of Samhain, with elements of the latter festival mixing with the former. Halloween is largely a celebration for Pagan idolators, and satan-worshippers, witches and the like. It is associated with evil, devils, demons and dark, sinister acts. None of these are approved of in Islam. Even some Christians are distancing themselves from Halloween.

Today, Halloween is largely a commercialised festival, which means big business for the candy stores and confectioners who make grand sales on the days leading to it. Children, teenagers and even adults go around dressed in crazy costumes, scary and skimpy, from door to door begging for money, sweets, or to simply scare people. Others get drunk partying, or go around town pranking innocent people. In short, it’s a night of nuisance! (Imagine what the police and medics have to deal with…)

As Muslims, we direct our efforts to please Allah (The One True God) alone. This means having a good intention,  doing good, and keeping away from evil. Muslims  have a long standing enmity with the devil, Satan. Satan (may he be cursed) was disobedient to Allah. And Satan was an enemy to our father, Adam- The first man. Satan’s mission is to lead us to destruction and hellfire. As Muslims our ongoing battle with Satan means we must avoid his misleading paths to evil (may he be cursed). Satan calls to idol worship, to harming ourselves, to harming people, creating mischief, following impure desires, destroying society among many other vices.

Muslims fight the Satan away, by remembering Allah, The Creator of all. So as Muslims, we’d rather be good citizens by maintaining peace and tranquillity in the community. Sure we love to give gifts, and we love sharing food, but just not on a night of notoriety.

Peace.

May Allah protect us from the Satan the accursed. May Allah guide us all back to the straight path that leads to His pleasure alone. Wasallallahu alaa nabiyina Muhammad. Aamin

After the special Eid prayers in the morning, it was time to continue the party celebrations!

Jazakallah khair guys for organising this and Allah forgive us for our errors and help us to do more good in unity.

Allah grant us the ability to please Him through obedience, wasallallahu ala nabiyina Muhammad, Amin
