It’s Raining Fatawas From Deobund.

In Faith & Religion, India on May 17, 2010 at 6:13 pm

Today’s fatawa states Islam doesn’t permit celebrating birthdays – it’s a thing Jews and Christians do. In the past week the fatawas declare these acts against Islam –  buying insurance policies, women going to work, and working in banks. But you can read other fatawas…in English here, and while there, please donate using any one of the listed banks listed under the ‘System Of Donation’ tab.

Also from the article:

Leading Islamic body Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind’s spokesman Abdul Hameed Nomani had maintained that fatwas should not be generalised and should be seen in the context in which they have been issued.

A birthday is generally assumed world over to be the day one is born into this world. Pray tell, is there some other ‘context’ for birthdays that the rest of us are ignorant about?
