Assalumalaikum Is it permissible to celebrate secular festivals (like independence day, republic day etc.) and other secular days like mothers' day, fathers' day etc. ?I read on a website that all this is haraam because it involves imitating the disbelievers, something which is prohibited in a Hadith. I would also like to know to what extent does this Hadith apply in our daily life. Does this Hadith forbid imitating them in religious matters only or even in the celebration of non religious days(like mothers'day, birthdays etc.)
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
As discussed in this previous answer, celebrating secular festivals and holidays is permissible.
