One of the side effects of Compassionate Imams and Crypto Reformists telling Muslims multiple times a year that it is halal or even good to celebrate the holidays of Kuffar is that many Muslims start becoming indifferent to their own holidays and special days.
Years ago they started normalizing just the “innocent” holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, MLK Day, Int’l Women’s Day; then added national celebrations like the 4th of July and Canada Day and Memorial Days for celebrating the military; then making excuses for “non-religious” holidays with sordid origins like Thanksgiving and Halloween and Valentine’s Day; and now opening the door to congratulating others on Easter, Christmas and Hanukah and, finally, even celebrating them, too.
We are now in the best 10 days of the year. Eid al-Adha is coming very soon. Sadly, for some Muslims, these days mean less and less with every passing year. They don’t feel like there is anything significant about them.
Having the feeling that something is sacred and important is a gift from Allah. It is a state of the heart that Allah grants His true servants. This is the feeling of real joy and celebration that bubbles out of the soul.
When you ingratiate yourself on kufr and participate in the cultural rituals of kuffar by imitating them, you think that feeling is going to stay with you?
Not at all! It will melt away. Think about that the next time you are tempted to congratulate kuffar on their holidays or participate in them. Don’t listen to the Compassionate Fools and Reformists in our time who have made every effort to make these things halal.
And if you want to get that feeling in these 10 days, make a real effort to treat these days special. Do more worship. Do more dhikr. Do something that you don’t usually do and when Eid comes, do something special and nice with your family and friends, even if it’s hard. If you make the effort, Allah will make it easy.
