Christmas an Evil Pagan Festival

 بِسۡمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحۡمٰنِ الرَّحِیۡمِ

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّ السَّمَوَاتِ السَّبْعِ وَرَبَّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ رَبَّنَا وَرَبَّ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ مُنْزِلَ التَّوْرَاةِ وَالإِنْجِيلِ وَالْقُرْآنِ الْعَظِيمِ أَنْتَ الأَوَّلُ فَلَيْسَ قَبْلَكَ شَىْءٌ وَأَنْتَ الآخِرُ فَلَيْسَ بَعْدَكَ شَىْءٌ وَأَنْتَ الظَّاهِرُ فَلَيْسَ فَوْقَكَ شَىْءٌ وَأَنْتَ الْبَاطِنُ فَلَيْسَ دُونَكَ شَىْءٌ اقْضِ عَنَّا الدَّيْنَ وَأَغْنِنَا مِنَ الْفَقْرِ

These days there is a disturbing trend of Muslims, in some cases Muslims who self-identify as observant and religious, celebrating the pagan festival of Christmas. Anyone who is acquainted with the basic facts of history necessarily knows that the origin of Christmas is a pre-Christian, pagan festival of the Romans to commemorate the winter solstice. It is a form of sun worship, and certainly not the birthday of the Messiah Jesus. The apostate Christian church, in the 4th century CE, transformed this pagan festival into a commemoration of the birth of Jesus. That is why there are certain other dissident churches, like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Seventh-Day Adventists, and Quakers, who shun Christmas. Muslims more than anyone else should shun and condemn Christmas, a well known pagan festival connected to sun worship. Likewise, Muslims must shun other Christian and pagan festivals like Easter, Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s Day and Halloween. When it comes to Christmas, the common forms of commemoration of it among people today is saying “merry Christmas”, setting up an adorned Christmas tree, exchanging gifts, gathering with extended family for a feast, singing Christmas carols, wearing a Santa hat, putting up lights and other Christmas themed decorations. Muslims must go out of their way to avoid all this evil activity. If someone greets a Muslim with “merry Christmas”, rather than responding or acknowledging he or she should totally ignore it and carry on with his business. Muslims must excuse themselves from any celebration or event occasioned by Christmas organized by their workplace or school.

It is quite regrettable that certain so-called Muslim countries, especially those in the Near East like Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Iraq and Sudan, and others like Bangladesh, have made Christmas an official, public holiday. Countries like Syria and Iraq should be particularly ashamed of themselves in their ongoing enmity with the Jewish State of Israel, which has more honor than those Muslims in that it doesn’t recognize Christmas as a public holiday:

یہ مسلماں ہیں جنہیں دیکھ کے شرمائیں یہود

Such Muslims which the even the Jews feel ashamed of
