HALLOWEEN VS THE AGONIES OF DEATH

Celebrating Halloween is simply to instill fear in the hearts of mankind. This is Satans faculty, Allah Ta’laa says:

اِنَّمَا ذٰلِكُمُ الشَّيۡطٰنُ يُخَوِّفُ اَوۡلِيَآءَهٗ

Translation:
It is none but that Satan who frightens (you) of his friends (Surah Aal-e-Imraan, Verse 175)

The Religion of Islam is one of peace and does not accommodate or facilitate unnecessary terror and pain upon any of the creation of Allah Ta’laa.

Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi wa Sallam said,

لاَ يَحِلُّ لِمُسْلِمٍ أَنْ يُرَوِّعَ مُسْلِمًا

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “It is not lawful for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim.” (5004 سنن أبي داود كتاب الأدب باب من يأخذ الشيء على المزاح)

Allah Ta’laa warns us of our enemy, therefore take him as our enemy,

Translation:
Did I not direct you, children of Adam, that you must not worship the Shaitan, (because) he is an open enemy for you, (Surah Yaseen; Verse 60)

What Are The Horrors of The Grave?

“Even if the poor human beings were destined to endure no afflictions, no miseries, no pains and no horrors in this life, the anticipation of death alone with its associations of harrowing pangs and throes and agonies, should suffice to disconcert their sensual enjoyments, to deprive them of their ease and comforts, and to cure them of their heedlessness.

Death is such a painful experience that one should always be concerned about it and engage oneself in preparations for meeting death.

A sage has said,

“Man is like a puppet moving strings and the strings are in the hands of someone else, Who may pull them at any time (and cause him to fall to the ground…and meet sudden death)”

Hadhrat Luqman The Wise, advised his son thus,

“Death is an occurrence of which the exact time is not known to anyone. Be prepared, then, to meet death at any time, lest it should take you unawares and unprepared.”

Indeed, it is not possible for a person to enjoy himself in the company of merry-makers when he knows he is wanted by the police (say, in a criminal case) and that, after arrest, they will flog him. Actually such a person loses his peace of mind and can not participate in joyful pursuits; the mere knowledge that the police has a warrant of arrest upsets all his pleasure and can cause him sleeplessness!

“And only if you were to see (them) when the angels take out the souls of those who disbelieve , beating their faces and their backs, and (saying) “Taste the punishment of the flaming Fire.” (Surah Anfaal; Verse 50)

When this is the reality of that which is there is no doubt in, how can one ever take relish in any ritual of the Kuffaar!
