Because you have the plastic (dolls) all year long but you can only see the (sugar dolls) in the mawlid (Prophet Mohammad's birthday). Of course, children are bored with the plastic (dolls), they want to be happy so they buy the sugar dolls on the occasion of the mawlid."

It is going too far. The question is on eating the food, is it halal or haram? For example, to give food to your family and bring them joy, not just when it comes to sweets for mawlid but any type of food. What is the nature of that act? It is allowed, bringing joy to the family is allowed. It is alright. But they say that this specific food had become connected with the day of the birthday of Prophet Mohammad, they also say that the day of the birth of the prophet has not been agreed upon. That may be in some of the books, but at the end it is just about giving your family some food."
