Is Saying “Merry Christmas” Allowed In Islam ? must be popping up in the minds of many Muslims living in non Muslim countries. Then your answer is Here!
Well above all else, Muslims don’t celebrate merry Christmas or say merry Christmas ? because of trust that Jesus isn’t a God, or the child of God. Muslims trust that he was a Prophet. Observing Christmas would observe Jesus as God and that is totally haram and partner anybody with being a God aside from Allah is a grave sin.
It’s a question that is frequently solicited as of now from the year by numerous non-Muslims and Muslims too. To begin with we ought to comprehend what Christmas is about and how it’s seen by Muslims. Not at all like Islamic banquets, Christmas is commended on a settled date encompassed by media buildup and with many shops beginning to show their Christmas extend as ahead of schedule as October. Obviously, following three months of Jingle Bells, numerous customers would have had enough. I’m additionally alluding to the weight that guardians are under to purchase presents and toys for their youngsters and grandchildren, also that many individuals acquire cash to adapt to the money related weight that Christmas brings. A considerable lot of my honing Christian companions discover the sum spent on everything that accompanies Christmas, for example, nourishment, beverages and improvements to be outrageous.
So the question is: what is Christmas about? In the event that we backpedal, we find that in antiquated circumstances the devour of the agnostic sun god occurred on December 25. It was praised in Europe to give individuals trust that the troublesome days of cool climate would soon be over. The places of worship assumed control over this date, in spite of the fact that there is not one archive that demonstrates precisely when Jesus (peace be upon him) was conceived. It’s accepted by our Christian companions that God sent his child into this world to recover it from the first sin of Adam and Eve and thus Christmas is the time when Jesus was conceived. I needed to share this since I’m thinking about whether my Christian companions know these certainties about this celebration.
Today Christmas is praised uniquely in contrast to the way it was in the Middle Ages, when practically everybody went to chapel. For a few, it has turned into an opportunity to praise the affection for family and companions and to ponder the upbeat minutes that have been shared. Other people who observe Christmas are committed Christian adherents, and consider it to be a religious devour at the heart of their confidence. To them the religious administration is more essential than the huge bit of turkey they will get the chance to eat. A number of them feel that the point behind Christmas has been modified by the media, and this is an inclination shared by numerous Muslims, who additionally feel a similar thing is going on to their two noteworthy Eid festivities.
Since Muslims don’t trust that Jesus was God’s child, there is nothing for them to celebrate and the celebration has no influence in the Muslim logbook. It likewise implies that in Muslim nations there is no official occasion. It’s the reason Muslims don’t brighten their homes, schools or workplaces with Christmas trees and pixie lights. What’s more, this is additionally why they don’t send Christmas cards.
Taking the UAE for instance, Christmas fans may appreciate the devour as it is praised in their homes, and in shopping centers and inns. I’m certain you wouldn’t discover such openness and acknowledgment in some other Muslim nation. Truth be told, you would not discover any non-Muslim nation observing Islamic dining experiences the way we observe Christmas, yet perhaps this is on account of it has turned out to be to a greater degree a social festival, while Islamic celebrations are still observed as religious festivals.
Thus in the event that we needed to send a card, I would recommend that it not be religious or with Christian images on it. One could basically compose: “May God favor you”, “Compliments of the season”, or, my top pick, “Merry Christmas”.
