Hull Daily Mail carries an interview with a local leader, Imam Hafiz Salik, who was blinded in one eye after a brutal attack more than a year ago.

Imam Salik, of the Hull mosque and Islamic centre, presented an alternative Christmas message in the local paper a few days ago in which he alluded to the attack last November.

Imam Salik was travelling in his car with his wife and daughter when a group of people stopped his car in the middle of the road, opened the driver’s door and punched him in the face before running off. Imam Salik suffered major injuries and has undergone several operations to his right eye though his vision is still severely impaired. Despite a police appeal for witnesses, the perpetrators have not been apprehended. Imam Salik’s son expressed concerns over the ‘stalled’ police investigation earlier this year prompting Humberside police to release CCTV images in an fresh attempt to identify the attackers.

Only Wannabe Christian Muslims want to celebrate Christmas (Video)

info-pictogram1 An increasing number of Muslims want to celebrate Christmas as each year passes. As Sheikh Mumtaz ul Haq explains, these Muslims are more worried about pleasing the media and the Western society than they are with abiding to Islam. He calls these people “Supposed Muslims”, because they claim to be Muslims, yet have no respect for Allah, no respect for the Prophet Muhammad, and no respect for Islam.

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?

They say: “(Allah) Most Gracious has begotten a son!”
[89] Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous!
[90] As if the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin.
[91] That they should invoke a son for (Allah) Most Gracious.
[92] For it is not consonant with the majesty of (Allah) Most Gracious that He should beget a son
[93] Not one of the beings in the heavens and the earth but must come to (Allah) Most Gracious as a servant. Quran 19.88..93 ( Surat Maryam , verses 88 .. 93)

They say: “Allah hath begotten a son”: Glory be to Him, nay, to Him belongs all that is in the heavens and on earth: everything renders worship to Him.Quran 2.116 ( Surat albakarah , verse 116)

They say, “Allah hath begotten a son!” Glory be to Him! He is Self-Sufficient! His are all things in the heavens and on earth! No warrant have ye for this! Say ye about Allah what ye know not? Quran 10.68 ( Surat Yunus , verse 68)

Is greeting Christians or others with the traditional Christmas greeting “merry Christmas” or “happy Christmas” permissible in Islam?

It is not permissible for a Muslim to greet Christians with the traditional Christmas greeting because it means celebrating the day of “God’s” birth – a concept absolutely abhorrent to Muslims and in direct contradiction to the Qur’aanic verse, “He (Allah) did not give birth nor was He born.” (Qur’an 112:3)
The date of birth of Prophet Jesus, like that of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them both) was unknown and it was chosen to match the Saturnalia, the festival of the harvest dedicated to the Roman god of the harvest, Saturn. Christians did not celebrate the birth of Christ for the first 3 centuries after Jesus’ departure because birthday celebration was a known pagan practice. Similarly, Muslims did not celebrate Prophet Muhammad’s birthday until 4 centuries after his death. The practice was started on a state scale by the Fatimid Shi’ite caliphate in Egypt and the date of the Prophet’s death was chosen for the celebration. Dr Bilal

Now contrary to what many people may think, Muslims do indeed believe in JESUS — not as the Creator of the universe or as the offspring of the Creator of the universe, but as AMONG THE MOST NOBLE, DIGNIFIED, HONORABLE and RIGHTEOUS CREATIONS OF GOD. If a person does not believe in Jesus, then he cannot be a Muslim.

Muslims also believe that the mother of Jesus, the VIRGIN MARY, is the GREATEST OF ALL WOMEN. As a matter of fact the nineteenth chapter of the Qur’an is named for her.
