If on mine or my kids’ birthdays or anniversaries if I offer 2 Rakaats of Shukraana, to thank Allah S.W.T. for all His blessings, will this be regarded as Biddat?

Answer

It is not permissible to celebrate one’s birthday or anniversary. However, one may thank Allah Ta’ala for giving life for the previous year or thank Allah for the prosperous marriage.

The thanks may be expressed by performing Salaat without regarding it as compulsory.

and Allah Ta’ala Knows Best
