Muslims and Christmas (Special Coverage)

By Shari`ah Staff

celebrating christmas islamic perspective

Nowadays, our Christian brothers and sisters, relatives, neighbors, and friends are celebrating Christmas. We wish them all happy holidays and guidance.

On this occasion, we launch this special folder to show how Muslims should be kind, respectful, and friendly toward people of other faiths. Being Muslim does not mean having nothing to do with one's non-Muslim family, neighbors, colleagues, or friends. Muslims are allowed to wish non-Muslims happy holidays.

In this folder you can learn about:

  • The Islamic ruling on celebrating Christmas and sharing non-Muslims' festive occasions;
  • The Islamic view of Jesus and of his role as prophet and messenger;
  • Islamic teachings on honoring and believing in all of Allah's prophets and messengers;
  • Relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims.
 OK to Celebrate Christmas?
