Question:

Can a person use fireworks to celebrate the night of Eid?


Answer:

Many great scholars have spoken against the use of fireworks to celebrate the night of Eid. There is no Islamic teaching that tells us that we must celebrate the night of Eid. The only type of celebration of the Eid night which is evident in the Ahadith is the act of engaging in optional Ibaadah (worship).

In addition, the scholars have mentioned that the use of fireworks is a wastage of money and it is in resemblance to the acts of the unbelievers who celebrate their festivals in this manner.
