Maktab celebration

Fatwaa ID: 1830

Assalamualykum .mufti saheb.When a kid is four years and four months four days parents invite an ustad to teach Qur’an to the kid like Iqra bismi rabikalazi and they gather close relatives for that function. And name it maktab celebration
Is this bidat?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

We take note of the details of your query. Such celebrations are baseless and unprecedented. They must be avoided. There is no need to have functions for everything. Such functions often start off as an expression of happiness but later become a source of bid’ah. Furthermore, there is no significance to the mentioned age. Once the child starts studying the Qur’aan, at whatever age it may be, the parents may buy or do something for the child as a form of encouragement.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
