    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 670/478/L=1432) Celebrating birthday is not proved from Shariah. It is the custom of the Jews and Christians, so Muslims should avoid it. قال عليه السلام :من تشبه بقومٍ فهو منهم . One should avoid participating in the custom of birthday, but the food prepared in it cannot be termed as haram.
