As an alternative for Halloween the board would like to extend an invitation to the families who want to provide a safe Islamic environment for their children instead of going out trick or treating.
The movie “Little Prince” will be shown, before the movie there will be a short introduction about the origins of Halloween and why it is not celebrated in Islam. We will also break for salah and after the movie ice cream will be served.
As Muslim Americans we live among other traditions and cultural practices, and instead of trying to pretend we can hide our children from these practices it is our duty to allow for our children to have a healthy, safe, educational, and fun environment.
