Yes, this awful day is almost upon us.
These days, many Muslims take the matter of celebrating days like this very lightly.
This is a BIG mistake. Apart from the fact that we were ordered to only celebrate Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha, days like Halloween and Valentine’s Day have really ghastly origins. They’ve got kufr (disbelief) written all over them.
And please don’t say “It’s in the intention.”
When you know that these things contain things which displease Allah, then how can you do them and then say “My intention was good”? A good intention means that you were trying to please Allah, and obviously you cannot please Him with that which He dislikes!
It is not befitting for the one who believes in Allah and the Last Day to take part in such festivals. It’s as simple as that.
So, here’s a short article on the pagan origins of this day: Halloween by Muhammad Al-Jibaaly.
Here’s another one that explains the ruling on greeting the kuffar (disbelievers) on their festivals: Greeting the kuffar on their festivals by Ibn Uthaimeen (rahimahullah)
And here’s a rather ghastly looking poster that you can put outside your house to stop those kids from banging on your door and demanding that you give them some candy.
