Muslims, Before Celebrating Christmas, Think About What You’re Really Doing

A Muslim who “respects” Christians by celebrating Christmas or congratulating them on Christmas, in reality, is:

1. Blaspheming against Allah:

“And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.” Surely you have made a monstrous statement.” Quran 19:88-89

2. Lying against the Quran:

“And say, “Praise to Allah , who has not taken a son and has had no partner in [His] dominion and has no [need of a] protector out of weakness; and glorify Him with [great] glorification.”” Quran 17:111

3. Disobeying RasulAllah ﷺ:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ arrived in Medina during two days in which its people were celebrating. The Prophet said, “What are these two days?” They said, “We used to celebrate these two days in the time of ignorance.” The Prophet said, “Verily, Allah has replaced these two days with two better days: Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr.” [Abu Dawud]

4. Disrespecting Jesus Christ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ:

“And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?'” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.” Quran 5:116

5. Showing contempt for all of creation:

“The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation that they attribute to the Most Merciful a son.” Quran 19:90-91

6. Turning his back on the Ummah and the Believers:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” [Abu Dawud]

7. Leading Christians to the fire:

“And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” Quran 3:85

Don’t destroy yourself with ignorance or obstinance.

O Allah, guide us all.

    You only have the moral right to that comment if you’re an atheist or non-Christian or non-Muslim living in the west. I can see how you see this from the consumerist culture and rat-race perspective – this is the only time in the year you can actually afford to call your parents out of their old age homes and let them see their grandkids for 2 whole days in an year, or when you can actually pay some attention to your spouse and kids and exchange a few gifts, and share a few drinks and laughs, before you get back to your boring, mundane routine of solitary living.

    You don’t have any moral authority to make that argument if you’re either a Muslim or a Christian.

    In both cases, you know damn well that Christmas is a Christian religious festival, and you also know that this message is meant for Muslims (it’s not addressed to non-Muslims). Why else is there a mass, pope’s address, queen’s address (she is the official/leader head of the Church of England), religious services etc.? What about the Orthodox churches that celebrate Christmas with mass, religious service etc. in January? Sure, the trees with balls, the reindeers and the fat guy in red might be extraneous additions to the Christian Bible or religion or festivities, but they don’t do away the Christian religious core of Christmas.

    If you’re a non Christian and non-Muslim who wishes to only take the consumerist element of Christmas to gain a few moments of what resembles good times with family, no one stopped you from it. This message is for Muslims who think they will find honor and acceptance from the western fraternity by taking part in a ****Christian religious festival****

    ****Christian religious festival****
    ****Christian religious festival****
    ****Christian religious festival****
    ****Christian religious festival****

    This has nothing to do with Salafis by the way. Sufis say the same thing. (However, Sufi or Salafi, if they’re on Uncle Sam’s payroll, will always promote Christmas)

    In the tafseer of Verse 25:72, classical exegetes have stated that the word الزُّورَ refers to the religious festivals of the kafirs and mushriks.

    As just one example, Imam Jalaluddin Al-Suyuti rahimahullah wrote an entire treatise praising the Mawlid with valid daleels, and with equal passion he denounced the celebration of Christmas, also with valid daleels, but good luck getting Hamza Yusuf or someone at ISNA to teach you that.

    • Who say tha the biblical jesus يسوع is the same to Quranic عيس
      (” ‘Eis “), the bible is not And should not be a source for any muslim, as It is a talmudic rabbinic text full of shirk. Yeshua u
      In Hebrew or Iesus in Greek is roman sun God creation for the Eurocentric Cessar cult, so the hebrew yeshua name translated to يسوع in arabic can not by the same to ‘Isa Ibn Maryam and not Mary also, because we dont even have the letter ع of the Aramaic dialect Quranic original name عيس in hebrew. The same with the name Abram or Abraham to Ibrahim, or any other biblical name…
