Dressing up,filming and giving sweets out after someone takes shahaada

Question ID: 27118

We pray you are well.
A Chinese man took shahaada. His Muslim friend Imran and other muslim friends went to the masjid with him. They all dressed nicely.
At the masjid one of the maulana knew that these people have come for a shahaada but said , ‘ have you people come for a wedding.’ So Imran verbally says, ‘what’s his problem, there’s nothing wrong with us all coming to witness shahaada and dressing nicely for this occasion.’

Then the maulana said not to record or make a film of the Chinese man taking shahaada and also said to the Muslim friends that you tube is haraam and that such recording will be put on you tube.

The maulana also said not to have any mitaai/jalebi (Asian sweets)or sweets in the masjid after the shahaada.

One of the Muslim friends (Imran)
said that this maulana is wrong and should know better as he is knowledgeable and there’s nothing wrong with recording someone taking shahadaa and putting it on youtube and you tube is not haraam and there’s nothing wrong with giving out mitaai/jalebi(Asian sweets) as a celebration and there’s nothing wrong with us dressing up for this shahaada as its a good ocassion.
The rest of the Muslim friends said that Imran said the right thing and agreed to what Imran said.

Does imran’s attitude and imran verbally saying the above and his muslim friends verbally saying that he did the right thing and agreeing with Imran become kaafirs?

No, but there is no need for YouTubing the Shahaadah, dressing up for this occasion or distributing sweets.
