Well the answer is in the hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him
The Prophet (ﷺ) said: “Whoever imitates a people is from them,”
-[Sunan Abu Dawud] and Al Albani
He who resembles a people in their religions is not one of us and in another narration will be resurrected with them
Or have they partners with Allaah (false gods) who have instituted for them a religion which Allaah has not allowed…?” [al-Shoora 42:21]

🌃 “Antiochus decreed pagan worship throughout his kingdom, and sent Athenaeus .
🌃The Jews on the king’s birthday were forced monthly to eat of idol sacrifices, and to go in procession carrying ivy on Bacchus’ feast. Pigs’ flesh was offered to Zeus on an altar set on Jehovah’s brazen altar, and the broth sprinkled about the temple
🌃The Jews were constrained to profane the sabbath and monthly on the king’s birthday to eat of the idol sacrifices, and to go in procession to Bacchus, carrying ivy.” – Fausset’s Bible Dictionary, Antiochus

🌃🌃“A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one’s birth.”
▪︎ [This is why Yeshua/Jesus told us to commemorate His death at Passover rather than His birth.]
🌃The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1908, Volume III, “Christmas”: “Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church. Irenaeus and Tertullian omit it from their lists of feasts; Origen … asserts
(in Lev. Hom. viii in Migne, P.G., XII, 495) that in the Scriptures sinners alone, not saints, celebrate their birthday.”
🌃“The notion of a birthday festival was far from the ideas of the Christians of this period in general.”

🌃M’Clintock & Strong’s Cyclopedia (Vol. I, p. 817) says the Jews “regarded birthday celebrations as parts of idolatrous worship … ,
🌃There is no recorded instance in Scripture of the celebration of birth-days among the Jews. On the occasion of Herod’s birth-day John the Baptist was beheaded
(Matt. 14:6).” – Easton’s 1897 Bible Dictionary
🌃Birthdays celebration is prohibited in the Bible bcz it’s a star worship
Bible prohibited astrology in Isaiah 47:13-14
Therefore it considers birthdays records to enable the astrologers to chart horoscopes”
