Yet another ‘Fatwa’ on new year celebrations; know more about it
Ahead of new year celebrations, one of the most influential Islamic seminaries of India, namely, Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a new ‘Fatwa’.
The New Year celebrations, it was informed, are on the target of the Muftis of Asia’s biggest seminary based in Saharanpur.
The religious leaders of Deoband have directed the Muslim community and the followers of Islam to stay away from the New Year celebrations both on December 31 and January 1 calling it anti-Islamic.
According to Maulana Mufti Tariq Kasmi, senior ustad of Madarsa Jamia Hussainia of Deoband, neither revelries nor cutting of the cake on New Year was allowed in Islam.
Even greeting each other on new year was anti-Islamic more so the birthday celebrations and greeting each other on Christmas was also prohibited in Islam.
According to Mufti Tariq, the new year starts from Moharram in Islam. >
