Cairo – Egyptian ‘Mother’s Day is around the corner, March 21. During this time of the year, Salafis tend to weigh in on the ‘Islamic’ rulings over this day’s celebration much like other similar days such as Valentine days, Independence days …etc.
Salafis, who are generally adopting literalist, strict and puritanical views on Islam, tend to forbid, or make “haram,” the taking part in anything associated with Western culture. Actually it is much as their central plank since emergence.
In a phone call for a TV program on Tuesday, Sameh AbdelHamid, a Salafi preacher, described Mother’s Day celebration as blind emulation of westerners, stressing that celebrating Mother’s Day is impermissible, citing the unanimous consensus of scholars.
AbdelHamid said the Arab world has grown a penchant for imitating the West in almost everything. “Even drug prescription are now being written only in English despite of the fact that writing them in Arabic is simply possible,” he added.
He continued: “The idea of celebrating Mother’s Day in the Arab world started in Egypt, and was introduced by the two brothers Mustafa and Ali Ameen, the founders of the Akhbar al-Yawm newspaper, who borrowed it from France then. Egypt celebrated Mother’s Day for the first time on March 21, 1956. From Egypt this idea spread to the rest of Arab countries.”
