Rejoicing On 3rd Rabi’ ul Awwal


Is it ok to attend a birthday party that is on the 3rd of rabi ul awal?


Yes, it should be ok.

Well, if someone wants to stick to cultural observance, then Indo-Pak Shias delay the events of joy and happiness to post 8th of Rabi al Awwal. However, Iranian and Arab Shias end up the days of azadari by end of Safar.

To sum up, Shariah rulings do give permission to celebrate such events on 3rd Rabi al Awwal.
