Celebrating the Qurayqa`an Festival

A: The celebration of the fifteenth of Ramadan of Qurayqa`an Festival is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion) that has no origin in Islam, and every Bid`ah is an error. Therefore, this festival should not be attended and people should be warned against it. It should not be organized at schools or institutions, etc. In Ramadan, after performing all the obligatory acts, people should do their best with regard to Qiyam-ul-Layl (optional Prayer at night), reciting Qur'an, and Du`a' (supplication).May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
