Pearl of Wisdom

'I went to Humay da, to condole her for the death of Abu 'Abdillah (AS) [i.e. Imam al-Sadiq], so she cried and said, ?O Abu Muhammad, if you saw him as death came upon him, he placed his hand over one eye and said, 'Call my relatives and my friends to come to me.' When everyone had gathered around him, he said, 'Verily our intercession will not avail one who takes his prayer lightly.'

Question : #450 Category: Social Interaction
Subject: celebrations in Islam
Question: Celebrating birthdays allow in Islam?
Answer: We Shia Muslims, the followers of the Ahlul Bayt (a), have many occasions where we celebrate special occasions such as the 4 Eids, Meraaj, 13 Wiladats, i.e. birthdays of 14 Masumeen, etc.

Celebrating birthdays has the same logic where we recognise and acknowledge our trial on this earth and we should set yearly goals in order to truly appreciate the year lapsed.
