Wow! I rarely get comments from anonymous, so when the big guy told me that there was an anonymous comment yang STEADY for my previous post, I was all excited ok! So much so that I decide to publish THE comment this time around. Hehehe...
Btw, my previous post wasn't intended for any specific person and so no one should take offense of it. As it is with all bloggers, the opinions expressed in our respective blogs are solely ours and has nothing to do with anyone of you out there, so if you do feel offended, then go ahead and
butt off my blog click that X button on the right hand corner of your screen. Peace!
But I really do appreciate Superheroes Mom's point of view because her point really, really put me into deep thought! As such, I believe that we Muslims has been celebrating events that we don't know where it originated from. Like the New Year's Eve, whoever knew that it originated form Pagan rituals and then later adopted by Christianity? I for sure didn't know, but lucky me I'm not much of a New Year's Eve celebration fan.Of course we do and still will enjoy watching fireworks because regardless of what celebrations they have, even for the Olympics, fireworks is still just that; fireworks. But now that Mommy Azan pointed it out, harus lah find out whether it is permissible to celebrate it before we decide to do it, if we somehow feel the need to celebrate it this year. :-)
What about Valentines?
Used to celebrate when I was in school but once I heard of it's origin, all celebrations had been put to a halt.
No matter what it is, I believe that your nawaitu plays the most important role. BUT, don't also forget the saying that "matlamat tidak menghalalkan cara". So if we want to be totally sure of the hukum, then I guess we just gonna have to ask the wise about this matter.
If you do believe that Halloween celebration is a must in your dictionary, then go ahead. Lakukan tanpa was-was, but please let the rest of us express our opinion as freely as we want to, anyway, anyhow we want to do it. After all, this is still my blog and my 'Aftermath-bad-mouthing' entry , isn't it?
