celebrating fourth day of dead person?

Is it permissible in Islam to celebrate fourth day of any dead person?


Narrated Um 'Atiyya: We were forbidden to mourn for more than three days except for a husband. SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[Volume 7, Book 63, Number 253]

Narrated Muhammad bin Sirin: One of the sons of Um 'Atiyya died, and when it was the third day she asked for a yellow perfume and put it over her body, and said, "We were forbidden to mourn for more than three days except for our husbands." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI [Volume 2, Book 23, Number 369]

……….Narrated Um Habiba: The Prophet said, "It is not lawful for a Muslim woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to mourn for more than three days, except for her husband, for whom she should mourn for four months and ten days." SAHIH AL-BUKHARI[Book 7 :: Volume 63 :: Hadith 252]

The prophet mohammad(pbuh) guided that it was not lawful for the believers to mourn for any deceased for more than three days except for a widow, whose period of mourning is four months and ten days. It is encouraged that the believers visit the bereaved family members of the deceased during this period, provide them with food, share in their grief, guide them towards patience and constancy, and help them in whatever way possible.

Other than the above, there is absolutely no example of the Prophet (saws) ever allowing or encouraging the reading of ‘khatams’, or allowing the reciting of ‘Quls’, or specifying further days or any kinds of rituals like the 4th, 9th, 10th, 30th, 40th days of mourning, or feeding, or doing any ritual for or in the name of the deceased!

Thus the 4th, 9th, 10th, 30th, 40th etc are all innovations & the believer should abstain from the doing of things/deeds that are not from practice of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) or his noble companions;
