Muslim Christmas Celebrations Recognize Jesus In Islam

Muslim Christmas Celebrations Recognize Jesus In Islam

Commented Dec 17, 2011 at 22:00:44 in Religion

“This Muslim celebrates Christmas and loves Tebow!”

hvsmrspct on Dec 18, 2011 at 02:33:22

“Can you kindly and politely explain to me how you, as a Muslim, celebrate a day that is marked as a holy celebration of the birthday of the son of God, the Lord of mankind, the savior for those who believe?

I ask for this in the understanding that in Islam, God is One and declares in the Qur'an very clearly that He begets not nor is He begotten. Also, that He is glorified over having a son as all creation is His. That He is All-Forgiving, All-Mercifull and thus in no need of a blood sacrifice to forgive the sins of others. That no one enters heaven but by His grace alone, and so there is no "savior". That In Islam, Adam taught man the fundamental lesson of humanity - when you do fall into error, repent, turn back to God and He will forgive you, thus in Islam, there is no original sin that is passed on at birth as God forgave Adam his error.

It is also from Islam that all acts of a Worldly nature are lawful except what is clearly prohibited while all acts of worship are prohibited except what is clearly permitted...and the prophet Muhammad, and I will go ahead and say may peace be on him, said, whoever imitates a people is of them.

So then, how does a Muslim partake in the worshipful celebration of the birth of the Lord?”

“Like it or not, the US is the most powerful and rich country in the world, and who we choose to lead matters, not only here, but throughout the world. After the 8 year Bush disaster we now have a President who has inspired the world and has begun to tread a path for the US to once again show it's greatness. Anyone who is not proud of our President is unpatriotic and well..I'll refrain from saying anything else on that. I say Congratulations Mr. President!”

“The Bush legacy in the Middle East truly is sickening. The chance for a peaceful solution has been clear for years - a two state solution with a just resolution for the Palestinian refugees. The 2002 Arab-Israeli initiative, which offers all Arab countries peace with Israel in exchange for a Palestinian state in the 1967 borders in Gaza and the West Bank, is losing any chance for success because of the Israel's continued expansion of the illegal settlements in the West Bank.

The problem - and solution - is overstated as "complicated." The solution is before us and the door of opportunity is quickly closing. As long as the USA continues to blindly support Israel and not evenhandedly press all parties to work towards the solution, the time of opportunity will pass and Israel will be nothing more than an apartheid state. I pray for the Palestinians and Israel, that the Obama administration will finally have the moral strength to stand up to Israel and show them that it is in their own best interest to resolve the Palestinian conflict with a just solution before it's too late.”

“The solution should be clear and to you and I it is. I would suspect to most Israelis it is clear, The problem is simple and it is only partly related to Israeli intransigence. In fact, Hamas has no interest in peace with Israel. There can be a two state solution once Hamas is obliterated from this planet. The only thing Hamas cares about is preservation of Hamas. If there is peace, the purpose of Hamas becomes uncertain and their reason for existing ends. They have no interest in behaving like a real government and their extinction of Fatah simply proves my point. They would gladly kill their own people to preserve and enhance their own power. I also don't buy into the collective punishment argument. Hamas was democratically elected and Gazans knew very well what Hamas would do vis a vis Israel. They didn't care. Gazans should have rose up and started hanging Hamas thugs from street lights but they didn't and most sat back and watched Fatah be destroyed. No peace can exist as long a Hamas exists. A sad situation for sure.”

“It may already be too late for a just solution because the US did nothing while Israel continued to build settlements in the West Bank for the very purpose of making a two-state solution impossible. Unfortunately, Sharon and his ilk lacked the wisdom and foresight to understand that a one-state solution will doom Israel to eventual extinction as a Jewish state because it would place Israeli Jews in the same position of white South Africans under apartheid. A two-state solution, on the other hand, would require Israel to remove those Jewish settlers who do not wish to live in a Palestinian state from the West Bank. Good luck with that.”
