Is it permissible to give money to family members to celebrate the day of eid or is it considered bidah?
We used to give gifts, but we want to avoid the usual, 'my present is better than yours'.

  • It depends on your definition of bid'ah. But clearly the vast majority would not say it is a bid'ah. – Kilise Jul 1 '16 at 15:49
  • It Is not biddah at all ,spending money or giving presents to family on eid days or others are rewardable acts. – Faqirah Jul 1 '16 at 16:46
  • I'd add to the comment of @Kilise those who may say it is bid'ah would say the same about giving gifts on Eid. – Medi1Saif Jul 8 '16 at 10:40
