Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

can you celebrate birthdays if not can you atleast be happy or get a cake… or do you tottaly ignore it?

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

There is difference of opinion regarding the celebration of birthdays. Some scholars see as reprehensible. Others, however, state that it is permissible as long as it isn’t deemed religiously necessary; is free of extravagant wastefulness; and is free of sinful and reprehensible practices.

And Allah alone gives success.
