I have heard from many people that celebrating birthdays is wrong for Muslims as it is a practice that originated from the Christians and that we should not celebrate our birthdays. Is this true or not? Should I stop celebrating birthdays? I mean there’s no harm in it the way I see it unless we do anything un-Islamic or spend excessively can’t we cut a cake and feel happy and especially children look forward to their birthdays so much.
