Muslims Celebrating Christmas

Ruling On Celebrating Christmas And Congratulating Them

Since the pagan festival of Christmas, celebrated by the Trinitarian polytheists, is fast approaching on the 25th of December, we would like on this occassion present a fatawa (Islamic ruling) for the Muslims with regard to celebrating their festival or even congratulating them. It should be noted that the Christians believe that Jesus is literally God, hence to participate or even greet them is to agree with their doctrine. Therefore Muslims should be aware of the boundaries with regard to Christmas and how one should approach it.
