Islam is a complete way of life. Its wisdom is profound. What Islam prescribes and what it prohibits is always of tremendous benefit for humanity as a whole.
GUIDANCE FROM THE QURAN AND HADITH
“Has not the time arrived for the believers, that their hearts in all humility should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been revealed to them? That they should not become like those to whom was given the Book aforetime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts grew hard? For many among them are rebellious transgressors.” (Qur’an 57:16)
“We have sent them the Truth, but they indeed practice falsehood” (Qur’an 23:10).
The Noble and Last Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:
“Whoever imitates a nation is one of them!” (Hadith-Abu Da’oud).
“The Final Hour will not come until my followers copy the deeds of the previous nations
and follow them very closely, span by span, and cubit by cubit (inch by inch)” (Hadith-Bukhari)
“You must keep to my Sunnah and the sunnah of the rightly-guided Caliphs; cling to it firmly. Beware of newly invented matters, for every new matter is an innovation, and every innovation is misleading.” (Hadith-Bukhari)
WHAT SHOULD WE DO?
As Muslims let us be convinced of our Deen that it is indeed the best and purest way of life…so do not say “hello” but rather say “goodbye” to Halloween forever!
May Allah Ta’ala guide us onto the straight path…Ameen.
