Fire crackers on Ramadan Eid

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I would like to known is it necessary to burst fire crackers during the new moon sighting before the commencement of Ramzaan and on the night of Idd or else on any occasion.


(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)




Fire crackers on Ramadan Eid

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


If one burst fire crackers during one’s marriage, or the birth of one’s child, or any day for displaying his joy or happiness, including the sighting of the new moon that announces the arrival or end of Ramadan to make people aware that the time has started, or as a sign of his joy at these celebrated days, etc.; there is absolutely no harm.


But if one bursts fire crackers and considers it a part of the deen, or thinks by doing so he will earn a reward from Allah Subhanah, or that it is a part of the Sunnah, etc. then it would be incorrect belief.


Thus it all depends on the intention of the person who does the deed, for all actions will be Judged by the All Knowing Lord according to one’s intentions.


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 1.1 Narrated by Umar bin Al Khattab

I heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "The reward of deeds depends upon the intentions, and every person will get the reward according to what he has intended.”


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
