With the beautiful golden Christmas baubles and the oh-so-cute snowy Christmas trees, it is absolutely understandable to be attracted to all the glitz and shine of Christmas (and as a side note, it does make it worse not to be tempted and dragged into the excitement with all those gorgeous sale deals), but is it okay for Muslims to be a part of the festivities or is it a matter of religious do’s and don’t’s?
My name is Salahuddin Decero and I am from Philadelphia Pennsylvania. I was born into a Sicilian family in South Philadelphia. Born a Roman Catholic Christian
I was born in North Carolina in July 31, 1987. My family was all living in Philadelphia, but my family moved down south for a very short stay. We moved to Philadelphia because all my relatives lived there and I grew up in Philadelphia. I was born Roman Catholic but my family never practiced. The only times I ever went to church were Baptism and first Holy Communion. So throughout my youth I was very innocent, but when I hit my teenage years my family was very shaky and dysfunctional. My mom became very sick and my dad became very sick. It was one of the hardest moments in my life. So I began hanging with the wrong crowd.
Amazing to see the progress our brother Patrick has made after accepting ISLAM not to long ago . He used to be a Catholic Christian.
Dear sisters, do you know that so much of the whole world actually “wears Hijab?!” YES! The earth is surrounded by the atmosphere and ozone layer. Fresh fruits have peels on them. The sword is preserved in a sheath. An ink pen would dry without a cap. We put paperback and hardback covers on our books. A pen would be thrown away because it became dry and useless without its cap. An apple without a peel becomes rotten. A banana without a peel would change colors. And a woman is a beautiful flower which every one wishes to pick so she should cover herself with the beautiful hiijab. Subhan’Allah, the world is wearing hijab, what about you?
