Saudi Arabia is changing and adapting the modern culture. In this row, the Halloween festival is celebrated by breaking Saudi’s old beliefs this year. Saudi Arabia which is known as the Centre of Islam celebrated the Halloween Festival first time. The pictures of Saudi people wearing Halloween Costumes getting viral on Social media.
But this new practice started a argument over Modernization and Civilization. Celebrating such festivals was sin in Saudi Arabia and Gunah in Islam. But since Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) became the Crown Prince, the modern change in Islamic customs become the part of Saudi Arabia and Halloween 2022 celebration is the biggest example of it.
This is the first time that Saudi Government given the permission to Celebrate Halloween in the Country. But some Muslims probably did not like this decision of the Saudi government. After pictures of the people wearing Devil masks and makeups in their traditional outfits circulated on Social media, it became the topic of haram and Islamic customs.
People are saying that celebrating such festivals are Haram in Islam as it is directly related to Shaitan (Devil). Islam did not give the permission to celebrate such things. The main thing that making it worse that people wearing their prophet costumes and hijab with Devil Masks.
But some people also supporting this decision of Saudi Government they saying “Saudi always follows trend and it is a part of it, nothing else.” Well you can see how people reacting on this controversy.
Astaghfirullah I am seeing a lot Muslims celebrating Halloween this year, as Muslims it's forbidden to celebrate Halloween, May Allah guide and forgive us all.. Aameen

It is really interesting to see such a purely American holiday being exported to and celebrated by countries in the Middle East!
