    Not sure if it's specific, i'm no scholar, but from my knowledge the sahabah never did, so my personal belief is to abstain from it, but I'm not imposing my beliefs on anyone here...just saying..

    nice question

    What I am sure about is that having a birthday party is haram.. but just to celebrate there is a little dispute about it.. .becuase some ppl say: it's just a time of family gathering and having a great time with family and friends.. why ruin it?

    But on the other hand.. Some scholars say that there should be only 2 occasions to celebrate as the Prophet Muhammad (saw) did.. .Eid Al-Adha and Eid Al-Fitr

    and im no scholar... allah know's best

    My opinion: Just keep regular outings and great times with family so that there could be no need to have a birthday celebration.

    Mothers' day also come here.. and many other celebrations... many ppl just say: It's an opportunity for me to enhance my relationship with my mother... but again i say .... if u regularly make your mother happy... and make every month or week as beautiful as a mothers' day for her.... why shud there be a need for celebrating mother's day

    Yeh, I've also heard that a birthday is not a time of joy as your 1year older, but is that an Islamic argument? Jazakhallah for that bro.

    Not sure.
    I think the whole philosophy against gambling is that it's supposed to involve winning/ losing money through a game of chance. Not sure how postage infringes that...

    EDIT: Are you winning money for it?

    Well even if you enter for free, and do not bet any money of your own, the money you end up winning is considered Haram.

    Nah I'm just wondering out of interest because I remember my mum used to do little puzzles in magasines and then send the form back to win prizes potentially - and a thought just came to me that perhaps this is gambling, because of the postage fee.

    how? I thought its haram if you actually gamble the money but its not gambling if you enter for free surely?
