  • That guy doesnt know his scriptures very well.
    Romans 8 says that He turns things around for good to those who love Him
    Also we no longer live under the Law but under Grace. I do not think God cares if we celebrate birthdays yet we should give Him thanks and honor for creating us!
    It is truly about the heart !

  • LOL that was hilarious. No offense intended to anyone who follows the Torah... honestly, has anyone here ever considered a birthday cake to be evil?

  • We Muslims aren't supposed to celebrate birthdays.. though some do. .The reason is because we have no evidence that the Prophet and or his companions celebrated these dates. which we take as a prohibition, while some do not. What i find interesting is that according to some scholars...(as i heard a student say) those people who do celebrate the birthdate of the prophet are actually celebrating his death date because the disbelievers back then took that date as a celebration but disguised it as a birth date celebrati to fool the people. (which is mentioned in this article about others and how they came to be celebrated) another thing i find interesting is the analogy to "idolatry and deity worshiping. another thing is that there is truth in that many pagan things were disguised later by others to be holy celebrations or feasts with no ties to deities.

    interesting piece.
