wishing on birthday


Asalam u alaikum Is it wrong if someone wishes on birthday without cutting the cake?


Waalaykum Salaam,
I find it wise to mention that cutting a cake and or celebraring a birthday as such is not an Islamic culture, it is a foreign thing adapted by Muslims and unfortunately we have grown to know it as part of our lives. Of course it isn’t haram to do either, but it should not put pressure on your life what So Ever. Therefore, whether it’s right or not is not a question anymore.

Kind regards,
