Muslims Celebrating Christmas
As Muslims our faith teaches us to respect all individuals no matter what their faith and beliefs be. We are commanded to treat every individual with kindness and compassion, and never to belittle the beliefs of another nor the deities that they worship.
At the same time, as Muslims we are dedicated and sincere towards our theology & creed and we do not associate or mix our beliefs & celebrations with that of other religions. Hence, as Muslims we do not celebrate the Christian celebration of Christmas.
What if our children or non-Muslim neighbours ask us why we don’t celebrate Christmas? Or what our beliefs are about Jesus Christ?
In this talk, delivered as the second half of a khutbah during the school holidays of the Christmas season, Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi explains the Islamic beliefs regarding Isa b. Maryam (Jesus Christ), and why Muslims should not celebrate the holy days of other faiths.
