Holiday Greetings

Wishing a very
Merry Christmas
to my family and friends.


  1. She says: I want to become Muslim, but my family gather to celebrate Christmas, and I want to go and greet them. This is not with the intention of celebrating or joining in, but simply to make the most of the opportunity of my relatives getting together. Is this allowed?

    We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen,who answered as follows:

    No, it is not permitted. If Allaah blesses her with Islam, then the first thing she must do is to distance herself from her former religion and its festivals.

    And Allaah knows best.

    Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen

  2. It is not permissible for the Muslim to eat foods that the Jews, Christians and mushrikoon make for their festivals. It is not permissible either for a Muslim to accept such things that are given to them on the occasion of their festivals, because that implies honouring them and cooperating with them in manifesting their symbols and propagating their innovations and sharing their happiness on the days of their festivals.

    Al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah, 22/398.

  3. Anonymous... for every Shaykh who says one thing you can find one who holds an opposing view. I'm sorry that you are learning intolerance. May Allah help you and guide you.

  4. name one shayhk that says it is okey to celebrite christmas as a muslim... And please, someone who is a sunni muslim, not shia, sufi or else....
