Are Muslims allowed to celebrate Father’s Day?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Are muslims allowed to celebrite Fathers day?



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Islam does not recognize the concept of Father’s Day and Mother’s Day. In fact, to single out just one day of the year to honour our fathers and mothers is an embarrassment and humiliation to our parents. Every single moment of our lives is for our fathers and our mothers. Shariah has placed  much emphasis on the rights of parents.
