Celebrating, assisting, eating and preparing food for a child’s birthday

Close the door please!
 
Question: Muslims in this region are celebrating naming ceremony for babies and doing maulid or salatun naaria and the give food to the guests.  Some of us say that we will not come to eat that food because the whole gathering is a bid'a but we participate in that gathering so that the people don't get offended.  But the people who are conducting this celebration  are saying we have made food only for the guest and has no relevance to maulid. And also they force us to eat.  Is it allowed to eat if they force us and they asking daleel to why we are refusing to eat?. please explain with proof in hadeeth that what we are doing is correct or not as we are not able to give concrete evidence
 
 
Answer: Celebrating birthdays is an innovation in the religion of Allaah, and it is not permissible to do this. It is not permissible to eat the food that has been prepared for this occasion. Their claim that the food for the birthday celebration is for the guests does not make it excusable to eat it. Hospitality is subject to its own rulings, and matters are judged according to the intentions behind them. It is very clear that the food is being prepared for this innovated occasion, and eating this food is one of the things that helps them to persist in doing this. It is a kind of co-operation in sin and transgression. Allah تعالى  says (interpretation of the meaning):
 
“Help you one another in Al Birr and At Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression” [al-Maa’idah 5:2]

حضور وليمة عيد ميلاد الطفل والأكل فيها
 
السؤال:
 
المسلمون هنا يحتفلون بمولد الأطفال ويقدمون الطعام للضيوف ويؤدون الصلاة النارية وقد رفضنا ذلك لكن ذهبنا حتى لا يصيبنا الحرج وهم يجعلوننا نأكل قهراً قائلين أنهم فقط يصنعون الطعام للضيوف فهل لنا أن نأكل من هذا الطعام؟ وما الدليل على عدم الأكل منه مع علمنا أن هذا الأمر بدعة ؟.
 
الجواب:
 
الحمد لله
 
الإحتفال بالمولد بدعة في دين الله ، لا تجوز إقامته ، ولا يجوز الأكل مما يصنع فيه ولأجله ، وزعمهم أن طعام المولد من أجل الضيوف لا يبرر أكله ، والضيافة لها أحكامها ، والأمور بماقصدها ، ومن الواضح جدا أن الطعام إنما صنع من أجل هذه المناسبة المبتدعة . والأكل من هذا الطعام مما يعينهم على الإستمرار وهو تعاون على الإثم والعدوان ، والله سبحانه وتعالى قال : ( وتعاونوا على البر والتقوى ولا تعاونوا على الإثم والعدوان ) .
 

أجاب هذا السؤال فضيلة الشيخ د . عبد الكريم بن عبدالله الخضير وفقه الله
