Of course! I love my birthday ... though I prefer christmas because then I'm not the only one getting presents. I don't have a big party or anything I just relax at home with family and presents. My friends wouldn't be happy if I completely excluded them from my birthday but I try and do something with them about a week before hand, so then I can relax on the actual day

This is just something to think about...
Early Christians and other religions based around the single god concept never celebrating birthdays, no gift giving, no cake, no happy birthday... I was a Pagan thing to celebrate ones birthday, even the act of getting gifts on your birthday was Pagan.
So tell me is doing a pagan ritual a sin?
Does it not point out doing anything pagan is evil foolish and a sin in the eyes of the one God!?
If so how can followers of this God do so many pagan things, wen it is well known God hates Pagans and there rituals?
So do you celebrate your birthday, or your kids birthdays?



Thank you for pointing out the most obvious thing ever. EXACTLY why we Muslims don't or at least shouldn't--since many are corrupt or ignorant--celebrate birthdays. If only people truly followed their religion instead of fooling around with it. People celebrate a lot of Pagan things nowadays. Where's Christmas with lights and ornaments in Christianity?

Because we value our religious teachings, we don't make up or mash up whatever we like of other religions or ideas. Of course there are still Muslims that celebrate the Prophet Muhammed's (peace be upon him) birthday or their own. It doesn't matter how good the person is: birthday celebrating is a sin! The Prophet (p.b.u.h) never practiced it and neither did his companions. Why should we? Taking on any man-made or falsehood-based rituals is a sin. Period.

Grr...Religious people need to wake up. There's no being "an inbetweenie".

For me it's not a sin because I am a Pagan. I love celebrating it with my closest friends, usually at my house, it's the best thing ever. I don't care much about the gifts though.

Not really. I don't like to make a big deal out of it. The only part I actually enjoy is the cake, since I can have whatever kind I want. This year's was a cookie cake with the Watchmen smiley face, so that was pretty awesome.
