WISHING MERRY CHRISTMAS IS HARAM (FORBIDDEN). -DR ZAKIR NAIK

Wishing Merry Christmas:

They say: (God) Most Gracious has sired (begotten) a child! For sure ye have advanced a thing generally gigantic! At it the skies are prepared to blast, the earth to part to shreds, and the mountains to tumble down in absolute demolish, that they ought to summon a child for (God) Most Gracious. For it isn’t consonant with the grandness of (God) Most Gracious that He ought to bring forth a son.{Quran 19:88-92}

Say: He is Allah the One and Only; Allah the Eternal Absolute; He begets not nor is He begotten, and there is none like unto Him.{Quran 112}

Welcome (greetings) on Merry Christmas

As indicated by Islam, God neither conceives nor he is sired and the greatest maltreatment you can provide for God is to state âHe sired (begot) a sonâ. This is on the grounds that; bringing forth is a lower creature capacity of sex which can’t be ascribed to God.

As indicated by Christianity, Jesus (pbuh) is the main generated child of God and Christmas is commended as his birthday. Since this is considered as the greatest maltreatment (abuse) given to God, Muslims are not permitted to wish Christians on this day.

A Christian whines about forbiddance of Muslims celebrating or praising individuals at Merry Christmas

All Praise be to the One God, who generates not, nor is sired (begotten).

You appear to have misconstrued the judgment of festivity of Merry Christmas as an issue of insolence for Christians. In all actuality, it is keeping in mind Allah and Jesus (pbuh) and the lessons of our Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him).

It is a fundamental piece of our confidence (faith) to dismiss festivities that have not been recommended or potentially that have a premise in deception, as unavoidably they lead to misguidance and changes in confidence (faith), as has occurred with Christianity.

There is not all that much or “periphery” about this. It is our fundamental ideal (right) to shield our confidence (faith) and practice from twisting and misrepresentation. Most likely nobody has a privilege to denounce us for this.

The word Christmas is derived from the Old English Cristes maesse, “Christ’s Mass.” :

(There is no sure custom of the date of Christ’s introduction to the world. Christian chronographers of the third century trusted that the formation of the world occurred at the spring equinox, at that point figured as March 25; subsequently the new creation in the manifestation (i.e., the origination) and demise of Christ should accordingly have happened around the same time, with his introduction to the world after nine months at the winter solstice, December 25).

… According to a Roman almanac, the Christian festival of Merry Christmas was celebrated in Rome by AD 336…

(The motivation behind why Merry Christmas came to be commended on December 25 stays indeterminate, yet most presumably the reason is that early Christians wished the date to agree with the agnostic Roman celebration denoting the “birthday of the unconquered sun” ) (natalis solis invicti); this celebration praised the winter solstice, when the days again start to protract (lengthen) and the sun starts to move higher in the sky.

The customary traditions associated with Merry Christmas have as needs be created from a few sources because of the fortuitous event of the festival of the introduction of Christ with the agnostic agrarian and sun oriented observances at midwinter.

In the Roman world the Saturnalia (December 17) was a period of fun and trade of blessings.

December 25 was additionally viewed as the birth date of the Iranian puzzle (mystery) god Mithra, the Sun of Righteousness. On the Roman New Year (January 1), houses were brightened with greenery and lights, and endowments (gifts) were given to youngsters and poor people.

To these observances were included the German and Celtic Yule ceremonies when the Teutonic clans entered into Gaul, Britain, and focal Europe. Nourishment and great partnership, the Yule log and Yule cakes, greenery and fir trees, and endowments and welcome all recognized diverse parts of this happy season.

Flames and lights, images (symbols) of warmth and enduring life, have dependably been related with the winter celebration, both agnostic (pagan) and Christian. Since the European Middle Ages, evergreens, as images of survival, have been related with Merry Christmas.

So as any normal individual can see, there is no solid reason for Christmas, nor did Jesus (peace be upon him) or his actual adherents observe Christmas or request that anybody observe Christmas, nor was there any record of anybody calling themselves Christians observing Merry Christmas until a few hundred years after Jesus (peace be upon him).

So were the sidekicks of Jesus (pbuh) all the more uprightly guided in not observing Merry Christmas or are the general population of today?

So on the off chance that you need to regard Jesus (peace be upon him),  as Muslims do, don’t commend some manufactured occasion that was matched with agnostic (pagan) celebrations and duplicate agnostic traditions.

Do you sincerely think God, or even Jesus himself, would favor or denounce a wonder such as this? On the off chance that you say support, clearly you are not keen on reality.

We ask Allaah, the One, Singular God, without any accomplices or children, the God of all creation and humankind, to control every one of us to the way of direction and earnestness.
