Jesus in Islam and Christmas  
Though Jesus is mentioned by name in twenty-five places in the Holy Quran he is also addressed with respect as: "Ibne Maryam" - son of Mary; as Masi (Heb) Messiah - translated as Christ; "Abd-ullah" servant of Allah; "Rasul -Ullah" - Messenger of Allah.

He is spoken of as "the word of God", as "the spirit of God", as a "Sign of God", and numerous other epithets of honor spread over fifteen different chapters. The Holy Quran honors this great Messenger of God, and over the past fourteen hundred years Muslims continue to hold Jesus as a symbol of truth.

Do good and throw it in the sea  

"What you give is what you get", or some variation thereof, is one of the most-common expressions we encounter in our lives about the consequences of our actions. This idea gives the impression that when we act virtuously we get an equal helping of good in return, and accordingly, our acts of cruelty eventually "come back around" to bite us.

Yet the reward-punishment equation is not as simple as this expression may suggest because in fact, the recompense of our good deeds is far greater than the reprisal for our bad deeds. 

Throughout the day, Muslims, those striving to live in submission to the one almighty God, will say "Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Raheem", meaning "In the name of God, the Most-Gracious, Most-Merciful". It is probably the most-common invocation for God that we utter, yet we may not always think over what these qualities of benevolence and compassion mean for us in our daily lives.

Narrow-Minded Legalism

Jesus (PBUH) said to religious lawyers,

 You sit on the road to the afterlife - but you have neither walked this road to its end, nor allowed anyone else to pass by. Woe to him who is beguiled by you!
