August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein?

June 30, 2022, 05:37:22 pm Heba E. Husseyn: Salaam all.  Today is 1st Dhul Hijja 1443 (corresponding to June 30, 2022).  Day of Arafah will be on 9th Dhul Hijja (July 8th) and Eid-al-Adha on 10th Dhul Hijja (July 9th). Fasting on the Day of Arafah is not obligatory, however it's a good day to observe a nafl fast for those healthy enough to do so.  Insh'Allah.

Walaykum As-Salam.  Briefly put, baby shower is a happy get-together to celebrate the future birth of a baby.  Celebrating the coming of a baby with joy and happiness is an approach that does not go against the values of the Noble Quran, unless it is celebrated in a manner that violates the rules and principles of the Noble Quran.  In that case it will be Haram.

Celebrating the birth of a baby is an old social custom which existed in ancient times in various communities and cultures.  All communities had their own different rituals.  Many of those ancient celebrations were Haram and very different compared to the modern baby shower we see at present.  The modern baby shower in North America is a women-only social get-together, an occasion celebrated with refreshments and gifts for the baby.

A Halal baby shower should be a sisters-only party usually celebrated when the mother is 6 to 8 months pregnant. It should consist of Halal foods and gifts for the unborn baby such as infant clothing, toys and milk bottle.  To further confirm the event as Halal, begin with the name of Allah and the recitation of the Noble Quran, and direct all your dua toward Allah and none else.  This is the description of a Halal baby shower.

The celebration will be Haram if it includes the following practices:

-  pagan rituals worshipping other deities
-  superstitious practices
-  rituals having pagan roots
-  indecent acts
-  Haram foods or Haram drinks.
 
Either all or any one of these above mentioned points will deem the party completely Haram.
