    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 700/700=M/1430)

     

    Celebrating birthday, whether of a child or aged, is unlawful in any case. It is custom invented by the westerners, Muslims should refrain from it. Cutting and eating cake on the occasion is a part of the same custom. So, it is also unlawful due to being a custom and resemblance to the aliens.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
