moreover I want to add that Hazrat Isa(pbuh) advised people of Israel to worship only Allah and said that he Is a muslim(Surah Al Imran ch 3 v 52),hence wishing merry Christmas is shirk.

Walecum As Salam,look if you had read Qur'an carefully it is clearly mentioned in Surah Al Nisa ch 4 v 157 and v 158 that hazrat Isa(pbuh) was not crucified,he was raised up alive by Allah,this is the biggest difference in the belief of Muslims and christians,so how could one Muslim deny this fact by wishing Merry Christmas,moreover Surah Al Mariyam ch 19 v 88 states that christians had said That Allah has given birth to begotten son,which Allah mentioned,it is the biggest abusive word to him,so if U believe in Allah how could U abuse your creator in addition wishing happy diwali is not shirk because U have to observe the meaning of those words diwali means festival of lights,so wishing diwali doesn't mean that I believe in ram,if U say merry Christmas U R directly going against Qur'an as I quoted from the verse above.if U say namaste means U R bowing down in front of the person.so U have to observe the meaning of those words,it is not easy doing dawah(giving message of Islam to non Muslims)in India because it is a very sensitive place,hence for their momentary pleasure just say congratulations to them instead of happy diwali,because this is the thing I do,yet MashAllah most non Muslims believe in me even more than their relatives.i say congratulations not happy janmashthami,happy holy etc.Allahfiz


Brother Naba, Assalamualaikum.

Thank you for your response. May Allah reward you for your dawah work in India. Im from India and understand the challenges of inter-religious dialogues.

You see, I agree with every portion of information you've shared, yet the links and conclusions your draw are difficult to grasp.

If we say 'happy birthday' to someone, I don't think it means we are acknowledging he is the son of so-n-so. In this wish we are just congratulating him on the occasion of his birth - whosoever's son this person may be.

Another point, the difference of crucification is regarding his leaving this earth, not coming into it, while christmas is about him coming into the earth, so I fail to see the connection between christmas and crucification.

Anyway, you are entitled to your opinion and I will not stop you from refraining if you wish to. Just wanted to understand the basis behind your action - so thank you for explaining.

barak Allahu feek!

Please note that our beloved prophet (sallallahu alaihe wasallam) fasted on Ashura because the jews fast on that day. And he said, we are closer to Musa (alaihe salaam) than the jews, thus we will observe this fast. Yet to distinguish this practice from the jews he fasted on 9th and 10th.

Jews have deviated from the teachings of Musa (alaihe salam) in many respects, but this did not prevent our prophet (sallallahu alaihe wasallam) to observe fast on ashura.

Had the exact birth of Isa alaihe salam known to him, allahu alam, he might have commemorated it in a form of worshipful act. So, commemoration of special dates connected with Isa alaihe salam cannot be shirk coz he is a muslim - the only problem is that we do not know those dates so we do not celebrate them

- my humble opinion only.
