What is the origin of the celebration held on the third day after the burial of a dead person?
It was innovated by those who are ignorant of Islam and their duty to (Part No. 9; Page No. 154) protect its principal and subsidiary matters. They do not have good religious sense, as it is mixed with the traditions of the misguided people. It is an unacceptable Bid`ah (innovation in religion) for the Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
Whoever does an action which is not in accordance with this matter of ours (Islam), will have it rejected.
