    MUSLIMS’ INNOVATED RELIGIOUS FESTIVALS

    1. Al-Raghaib: it is the first Thursday and the following Friday night of the month of Rajab celebrated by ignorant Muslims. There is no evidence of this ceremony from the Glorious Quraan and Sunnah of the Prophet (!). According to Shaikh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, it was first introduced after the 4 th century A.H A fabricated hadeeth is presented in support of this practice. See Al-Fawaaid-ul-Majmooah fil Ahaadeeth-il-Muwdooah: pp. 67-8, no. 106.

    2. Salaat Umm Daadoo: A prayer which is offered in the middle of the month of Rajab. A particular day is set apart and a specific prayer is offered on this day. See Al-Fawaaid-ul-Majmoo ah fil Ahaadeeth-il-Muwdooah: p. 69, no. 107.

    3. Eid Khum Ghadeer: The Baatinis have their own festivals too, such as "Eid al-Ghadeer", when they claim that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam gave the khilaafah to Alee (may Allh be pleased with him) and to the twelve imams after him. It is the name of place where the Prophet had delivered a sermon on 18 th Thul-Hijjah. This report is based on Hadeeth narrated by Zayd ibn Arqam which is collected by Imaam Muslim in Sahih Muslim: vol. 4, p. 1286, no.5920. Shaykh Imaam ibn Taymeeyah said in regards to this hadeeth in his book Iqtidaa as Siratil Mustaqeem: "the misguided people have, however, effected certain interpolations into this report. They even claim that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam had clearly commanded that Alee be appointed the Caliph and had seated him at an elevated place. ". He further said: " We are not concerned here with the issue of Imaamah. Our objection lies in declaring that it is an innovation to regard this particular day as a special day." See for further details, Mukhtasar Iqtidaa As-Siraatil Mustaqeem: English Translation: the right way: pp.45-58.

    These festivals and fairs of the people of the book or unbelievers or similar festivals introduced by Muslims are all innovations and every Muslim should avoid them to protect his faith. All kaafir or innovated festivals are haraam, such as Independence Day celebrations, anniversaries of revolutions, holidays celebrating trees or accessions to the throne, birthdays, Labour Day, the Nile festival, Shimm al-Naseem (Egyptian spring holiday), teachers day, and al-Mawlood al-Nabawi (Prophets Birthday).

    Every Muslim must consider the following saying of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam very seriously, Jaabir reported that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam used to deliver his sermon with this opening: "The best word is the Book of Allh and the best way is that of Muhammad ( !). The worst deed is innovation and each innovation is a deviation from Islaam." [Sahih Muslim: (vol. 2, p. 410, no. 1885).]

    There is an additional remark in Sunan An-Nasaaee: "Every deviation from Islaam leads to Hell-fire". [Sunan Nasai: English Translation: (vol. 2, pp. 343-4, no. 1581.)]

    Aayshah reported that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever does an act which is not in agreement with our faith, such an act is rejected." [Sahih Al-Bukhari: (vol. 3, no. 861.).]

    There is another report by her with different wordings:

    "Whoever invents something in our faith which does not originally exist, has nothing to do with us." [ Sahih Muslim: (vol. 3, p. 931, nos. 4266-7).]

    Irbaad ibn Saariyah reported that the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever survives me would observe many differences. However, you should follow my sunnah and that of my rightly guided caliphs. Adhere to it firmly. Beware! Avoid [Sunan Abu Dawud: (vol. 3, p. 1294, no. 4590).]

    ISLAMIC EIDS

    Muslims must celebrate only three Eids:

    (1): Eid-ul-Fitr,

    (2): Eid-ul-Adh-haa,

    (3): Friday is the day of Eid for Muslims
