Lunar eclipse superstitions


Junior Member

Ok tomorrow there's going to be a lunar eclipse in our area. So my mom phoned up my sis (who's pregnant) and told her not to do any stuff during that period like cook and etc... cause she said the baby will be born deformed or not fully fit.

Is this some pagan/hindu superstition, or is this supported in islam?
because im really confused, and my family although we don't believe in superstitions and stuff, my parents still hold certain beliefs like these :(

can someone help me with this?



Clear Skies!
Our prophet peace be upon him said that there eclipses is not linked to any person's death or any other supersititous beliefs for that matter. But it is a sign from Allah. And by the way it is not a lunar eclipse but a solar eclipse. Do not look at it with the naked eye. Have fun!
