Wedding Anniversaries

By Mufti Shafiq Jakhura


Q.I would like to know if celebrating wedding anniversaries is permissible in Islam. Also if celebrating them is allowed then what is preferable.

 


A. Celebrating of wedding anniversaries and other such occasions is not a teaching of Islam and must be avoided.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

Albalagh Note: Islam’s view of all such celebrations is a direct consequence of its view of time itself. The time we have available during our life is limited and every passing day brings us closer to our appointed time when we will have to stand accountable for all the time and resources we had available to us. Whether in birthdays or anniversaries, should we be celebrating that we have one less year left? Our life is a test and the results will be in the afterlife. Anyone who is truly concerned about the exam results that will last an eternity will find the idea of celebrating the passage of exam time as unfathomable.
