The Islamic Fiqh Council in its session held on Thursday 13th Rabi Al-Aakhir 1403H examined the phenomenon of (covering the truth with false inIndonesia and elsewhere). It reviewed the relevant reports, studies, researches and Fatwas. It also looked into the issue of attending the festivals and ceremonies of Buddhists and others.
After having discussion and exchange of views on these issues, the Council decided that Muslim’s participation in such festivals and ceremonies, which are not Islamic, is prohibited and forbidden in the Islamic Shari’ah. Hence, it is not permissible for Muslim to attend such festivals, present gifts to their organizers, visit their places or follow their customs as there happen things which are contrary to the Islamic Shari’ah.
