I agree Sharon

I think it's a secular thing...it's not sinful to buy someone a present and wish them a happy Mother's day...birthday...whatever.

My Kids do celebrate Mother's day offcourse with my complexity in it to surprise thier mother and my lovely wife. Unfortunately I lost my mother long time ago and I have not gotten over it yet, I dont believe I would ever and worse thing is soon after I lost my dad to another women, good for him and not good for me..

I'm sorry to hear about your mothers Slim and Sharon.  Aunty Melinda reminded me the other day to appreciate my mother whilst she was alive.  May Allah bless her for the reminder.  May Allah make us appreciate our mothers in such a way that we have no regrets later.

Personally, i dont think making your mother feel special should be reserved for the one day. We should buy gifts for our mothers families and frirends whenever we can.It does not have to be a special day.

I think giving a present to a loved when they least expect is just so wonderful.

 Exchanging Gifts with Non-Muslims on their Holidays

As for a Muslim giving gifts to non-Muslims, this is permissible as long as it is not done with the intention of celebrating their holidays or out of love for their religious festivals. We should rather give them gifts with the general intention of endearing their hearts and as means of calling them to Islam.

Of course. We all do. But there is no rule we have to pick one or the other, is there? We can surely do both.

This sort of practice is not acceptable to practicing muslims. We don't celebrate any of the holidays of those who disbelieve in the signs of Allah. We don't celebrate Easter, Good friday, christmas, St.Patricks ect. None of them are acceptable to muslims.

Thank you Sis True for those links. Jazakum Allaho khairan.

My personal view on this is that when you reserve a specific day for celebrating something whether it's good or day, it is bid'ah, even if it is with good intentions, or for the best of reasons. Take for example the celebration of the 12th of Rabbi ul Awal.

wasalam,

Your sister in Islam,

Urooj.

Nisar main teri galiyon k, ay watan, k jahan
Chali hai rasm k koi na sar utha k chalay..!!
Hai ehl e dil k liye ab ye nazm e bast o kushad
K sang o khisht muqayyid hain aur sag azaad..!!

This not the sunnah of our Prophet (p) or a part of our religion. Celebrating mother's days would be against our tradition. We love and honor our mothers everyday.

Worse news, Jermin. Father's Day comes in June.

I hope you're more fun in person than you are on this forum.

We love and honor our mothers everyday.

Worst news of all, Jermin. Lots of us do the same, even those of us who don't believe in any religion whatsoever.
