Join WORDS MAKE PEOPLE on Sun Dec. 30, 2018 from 1-3 p.m. EST as we discuss, “HOW DO MUSLIMS INTERACT WITH THE CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR’S SEASON?”
You may ask, "Why would a Muslim wish non-Muslims Season's Greetings"? I think that's a fair Question. I'm sure some Muslims are wondering the same. I pray that my friends of various faiths enjoy this Holiday Season because of the IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY. IT IS A SPECIAL TIME FOR BEING WITH FAMILY. The family is the nucleus of our society is often under attack from myriad directions and influences, but our families are not without hope, faith and love. That is what I believe this time of the year offers to us all - HOPE IN THE FAMILY.
No, Muslims do not celebrate what is known as Christmas but that does not prevent us from appreciating the good that Christmas produce within and among family and friends. Muslims do believe in the Virgin Mary giving birth to Christ Jesus, who is a blessed Word to humanity from our Creator. So let's build upon what we have in common -- in the end we are all one human FAMILY.
Please be safe my friends as you focus upon the true essence of this season and shun the frivolity and capitalism of those who dare profit off of human goodness. And a “HAPPY NEW YEAR” to each of you; hopefully a new year that will make each of us a NEW and BETTER person who is striving to serve the One G_d of us all.
