Birthday parties against islam says top Saudi cleric

A Saudi cleric has pretty much issued a fatwa on birthdays, anniversaries, and Mother’s Day. The last one is especially sick, being that muslims love molesting little girls, just like Muhammad did 1430 years ago, and beating and/or killing their wives, sisters, daughters, etc… over percieved acts that bring dishonor to the clan.

RIYADH (Reuters) – Celebrating anniversaries, birthdays or mother’s day is against Muslim ‘righteousness’, Saudi Arabia’s top cleric has said, quashing suggestions by a colleague that Islam permits personal celebrations.

Media savvy cleric Salman al-Awdah told viewers during a call-in television show last week that celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries was not against Islam, sparking a debate in the conservative kingdom and prompting the mufti to weigh in.

Grand Mufti Abdul-Aziz al-Shaikh said celebrating such events would make Muslims like followers of other faiths including Jews and Christians, al-Madina newspaper reported.

Shaikh embodies Wahhabism, the hardline Islamic doctrine that has ruled hand in hand with the Saud family since the kingdom was founded some eight decades ago.

Women are banned from driving and mixing with unrelated men in Saudi Arabia, whose clerics issue edicts ordering Saudis not to buy red roses on Valentine’s Day on an almost annual basis.

“A Muslim should thank almighty Allah if his children are healthy and if his married life is stable as the years pass by,” the paper quoted Shaikh as saying.

Two occasions call for celebration in the Muslim world, Shaikh said: Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, and Eid al-Adha, which marks the end of the annual haj pilgrimage.

Awdah, who follows a relatively softer line, is widely believed to be favoured by circles close to King Abdullah. The monarch has repeatedly said that Saudi Arabia needs reforms.

Coming from Saudi, birthplace of the religion of peace. This is about 5 weeks after that supposed interfaith conference Saudi Barbaria hosted, not in Saudi of course because Jews are not allowed, but in Spain. Basically it was another muslim whine-fest, about how muslims are being portrayed as suicide bombers, violent jihadists and terrorists. Mainly because so many of them are.

    Oh hell yeah!  Everything seems to be an insult, offensive or improper to these dingbats.  What’s next?  Excessive breathing will be punished?

    Islamists belong to the religion of hate.  They hate even mothers. Incredible.  Just what’s wrong with mother’s day?  Can you believe it?  Islam teaches that even mothers are second class status. Incredible.  Male Muslim babies are flesh of their mothers’ flesh, but the instant the male child is born, Islam relegates the male child’s mother to second class status.  Islam has to be the filthiest, stupidest, insidious, pernicious,  most hateful ideology ever created.  Islam could only be conconcted by satan and that filthy, child molester, pedophile, rapist, slave owner, polygamist, murderer, whoremonger Muhammad.

      In Islam, everyday is a Mother’s day. Every child is to obey his/her mom till the death do us apart, not till 18th birthday :)

    It’s a shame any Muslim even has a birth date.  Let me explain, it’s a shame they are even born.  I repeat and can’t say it enough.  Too bad, so sad a Muslim was ever born and MoHAM-MAD EVER EXISTED. 
    TO HELL WITH THIS NONSENSE!

    I remember some years ago when articles like me shocked me. No more. I honestly have the utmost pity for the Muslim people. 

     Pity and and some disguist.

    What’s the big deal here? I’m not a fan of Islam, but there are other religions which feel the same way about secular holidays, and aren’t vilified for it. Jehovah’s Witnesses, for example, are against the celebration of birthdays, and the pledge of allegiance. Commenters, save your indignation for issues worthy of it.

    I’m not shocked nor do I have pity for any one serving the ‘god of this world’ Satan.  They are of their father the devil.

    Muslim Righteousness- now there’s an oxymoron for sure!  Islam is disgusting and I thank God everyday I don’t have to live in a shit-hole country like Saudi Arabia. Banning Mother’s Day?!? That’s the devil at work for ya!

  • Kal

    Alex, when was the last time a Jehovah’s Witness cut off someone’s head in the the name of Jehovah, or drove a truck loaded with explosives and gasoline into a farmer’s market and detonated it? They don’t force their beliefs on anyone through violence. Islam does. THAT is the cause for our indignation.

    STOP HATING ON ISLAM ITS THE ONLY RELIGION THAT MAKES SENSE. YES THEY DONT BELIEVE ON BIRTHDAYS, BUT YOUR RELIGION TEACHES TO BASH OTHER RELIGION , I THANK ALLAH IM NOT LIKE U PEOPLE

      That is the very attitude Jesus warns us all about. This “I am so glad that I am not like other people…” thing.

      Fact is, If one reads the Qur’an and one reads Mein Kampf, they’ll find Mein Kampf to be more coherent, even thought both are evil books of evil ideology written by EVIL men.

        It’s no coincidence that Hitler was an admirer of islam.

      Nobody’s religion teaches to bash other religion. All religious wars verbal or in the battlefield are fought by those who do not practice their religion. Those who follow their religion with understanding always keep their doors and arms open for others, no matter what religion they belong to, because religious is the only oldest community which is the most dynamic and vibrant. It is not easy to change your race, ethnicity, linguistic, race etc. etc. but changing religion is the quickest way to enter or leave a group. So, it doesnot teach hatred to the followers. The incompetent/non-believer followers start hating others.

        The very nature of any religion is segregation. Segregating the believers from the non-believers, and wrong kind of believers.

        Segregating, no matter the reasons, is separating the “good” from the “bad” and the the “right from the “wrong.” That IS passive aggressive “bashing.”

        So your claim that no religion “teaches to bash…” is patently false.  Just like all the other vomit you’ve spewed on this board.

        Better get your burka’d butt back into taqiyya, kitman, and tawriya 101.

        What a load of bollocks!
        Religion founded on nothing more than inculcated faith in mythical space monsters.
        The only positive note about the Christian religion is that it has inspired some excellent architecture and good music.
        On the other hand we have a current situation whereby the ideological ordure of Islam promotes murder mayhem and discrimination.

    That’s true, Kathy, your religion really is different. Let me quote a bit from the Muslim Qur’an, The Muslim War Manual:
    1. “Infidels are your sworn enemies,”(Sura 4 Verse 101).

    2. “Make war on the infidels around you,” (Sura 9 Verse 123 and Sura 66 Verse  9).

    3. “Be ruthless to the infidels,”(Sura 48 Verse 29).

    4. “Fight those who believe not Allah nor the Last Day,”(Sura 9 Verse 29).

    5. “Strike off the heads of infidels in battle,”(Sura 47 Verse 4).

    6. “Kill the disbelievers wherever you find them,” (Sura 2 Verse 191).

    Kathy, there is much, much more evil in the Qur’an, but this will give you an idea what Islam is all about.  Incidentally, if you are a nice Muslim, you’re not practicing your religion. If you are a very nice person, you’re not telling the truth when you say you are a true Muslim. If I were you, I would call myself something else, i.e., if you are very nice.

    Kathy, am I bashing your religion by quoting your Qur’an? Of course not. I’m only telling the truth. God bless you, kid.

    Kathy, the biggest bashers of Islam are the Muslims. At this very hour Muslim Sunnis are bashing the Muslim Shiites, and the Muslim Shiites are bashing the Muslim Sunnis.

    Ahhhh…what Kathy forgets is that the 10 million crazy fanatics who want to kill everyone, want to kill her and all the “nice” muslims too. They don’t consider her a real muslim at all.  She’ll be the first on the beheading list for not being one of the real muslims. So if she wants to live, she’ll start being one of those insane violent evil muslims.  It sure is a religion of peace.

  • Liz

    Here’s a PS….islam is the most vocal at bashing every other faith. but they back up their bashing with acts. Death, murder, violence…..so don’t go all self righteous on us.  You have every right to believe what you want. Just like I do. The problem is when you want to make us all do what you’re doing or we should die. Oh…that’s not you…but it is a very large group of your religion. And they will kill you too…for not being like them.

    What a TWISTED and ABNORMAL kind of thinking…

    Muslims,on the other hand,were able to celebrate
    Saddam Hussein's Scud missiles that fell over
    Tel-Aviv,in 1991!!!

    Sweets were distributed on their filthy streets,while
    their primitive and simian-like children DANCED
    on the rooftops of their homes.

    This is what Islam represents.They celebrate DEATH
    much more than their own special dates.
