As pumpkins are always associated with the occasion of Halloween – The pagan rooted celebration that marks the beginning of winter and the rise of the souls of the dead. They have been misused as being a symbol of fear and evil.
Saying that, it reminded me of the hadith of our beloved prophet Mohammad (PBUH) which says: “It is not lawful for a muslim to frighten another muslim” [Sahih by Al-Albani]. This Hadith reveals that the act of frightening others is not only prohibited in Islam but also considered to be “Haram” unlawful even if someone was just joking and pranking with another.
