well its another form of entertainment which brings in money, personally I dislike them, I hate the noise, I sit at home and ok on one or two nights but day and night for weeks come on, and at school they had let off some in areas I mean, to me it is uselss, some people find it 'fun' hmm ok, i think its dangerous since i see alot of kids with them. I also think its a waste of money in my own opinion.

I think the whole thing is the reason they are used.

Here in the US they have been long outlawed in many States. Texas is one of the few states that still allows them. they can only be used For Christmas (old Mexican tradition) New Years Eve, July 4th (US independence day) and May 5 (Mexican Independance day) I personaly am opposed to their use on Christmas as I feel that is an infringement of Religious rights as a person can not escape from the noise.

The remainding days for them, they become more like Childrens toys and of little symbolic meaning to most people.

Keep in mind fireworks for private use and not public display are not very large here and do not present much danger to anyone.

Fireworks are forbidden in Islam because it's another celebration like you can't celebrate Christmas, B'day, Halooween && you can't celebrate Bonfire Night because it's forbidden!

As salaamu ALaykum,

Hmmm.. I don't think they're Forbidden in Islam and Allah knows best!!

If you say that Fireworks are Forbidden because it's used in the Kuffar's celebrations and all, won't the same go for Balloons? :?

Allaahu A'lam :peace:

well Ukthi you tell me one thing can we celebrate "B'day's" NO peeps use baloons on special occasions such as "B'days", Parties what so not, but we all know B'days are not allowed in Islam, && for Fire works they are not allowed i mean if you mean "Bonfire" do we celebrate that:? NO! therefore why would you need fireworks i mean the Ukthi wants to know in Islam Aspect so as far as i know "Fireworks" as in bonfire is not allowed same goes for Haloween && whats so not!


do me a favour remember me in your Du3'ah inshallah!

i think the fireworks are such a waste of money - money that could be used for better causes instead of burning it.

what fireworks make me think of is the life of this world - we look for glitz and bright lights and play - and then they perish - just like the life of this world!

It's just a waste of money, I used to love them when I was younger but I've kind of grown out of them now. Yes using them on 5th November means you are celebrating bonfire night which is forbiden but generally using them I doubt there is anything against it in islam, although money can be better spent IMO.

yeah i agree...fireworks just 'burnt' money...

there are so many useful things you can do...other than fireworks

and it is quite dangerous....you can't be over confident when using fireworks...what happened when you are using the faulty ones...what happened if it explode while you're still holding it... :rolleyes:

fireworks are not environment friendly too...
