YES! We got hacked! This page was replaced with very "UNISLAMIC" information.

Here's why:

Our pages were getting people to re-think their religion & COME TO ISLAM!

We got many letters, emails and texts asking about the permissibility of allowing Muslim children and adults to join along Christians in celebrating Christmas. You know, like giving gifts, decorating their homes, lighting candles, putting up Christmas trees and lights and greeting each other with "Merry Christmas."

No candles? * No Christmas tree * No sleigh? * No reindeer? * No mistletoe? * No bells? * No elves? * No stockings by the chimney? * No Christmas Carols * & NO SANTA CLAUS?

Let us consider some important facts about this occassion and what it really means:

The word Christmas comes from the words Cristes maesse, or "Christ's Mass." Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus for members of the Christian religion. Most historians peg the first celebration of Christmas to Rome in 336 A.D.

Christmas - For Christians?

What About Muslims??

By A Loving Muslim brother

I was a Christain for many years, and I used to get really upset when people took the "Christ" out of Christmas, and I could not imagine why people would let all of this gross commercialism overwhelm the remembrance of the birth of Christ Jesus. So, it came as a great surprise, in my little world, to learn this was from the Solstice celebration, and had been going on for hundreds of years before the time of Jesus. Also, we find no evidence Jesus was even born in the month of Decemeber (and in fact, it becomes obvious from close study of the Bilbe he was not even born in the year claimed to be 2,006 years ago.

Should Christians celebrate Christmas? (and what about Muslims?)

Let's consider some very important evidence about the event called "Christmas":

Major Points of Christmas - Not From Jesus (peace be upon him)

1. No proof for his birth in December - nor for exactly 2006 years ago for that matter. New Testament claims he was born during the reign of King Herod. He was already dead 6 years before.

2. No proof for Christmas trees - actually, the Bible (Jerimiah 10) forbids the act of cutting down trees or holly or anything and then taking it into the house and decorating it up.

3. Nothing about Santa Claus except a bishop who attended the Council of Nicea in 325 A. D. named, Saint Nicholas who was generous with money and used it to help a man get his two older daughters married off by throwing a bag of silver into their open window for their dowry (women paid men - the opposite of the dowry system of Islam), thus earning himself the title of St. Nick.

There can be no absolute proof of the particulars and details surrounding all of the many factors coming together in Rome in 325 A.D. (after Christ's birth), in order to establish with certainty, Jesus Christ was born on December 25, as mentioned.

Solstice Celebrations:

From Babylon to Rome, for thousands of years, virtually every culture has had some sort of celebration for the solstice. The winter solstice is the darkest, shortest day of the year, and since it marks the time at which the glorious light returns, the solstice has long been an occasion for great celebration and rejoicing.

On the surface, the solstice celebration is often a rejoicing of the return of the sun with the promise of the greening of the earth and the warming of the days. But on a deeper spiritual level, the solstice celebration honors the birth and rebirth of the glorious Holy Light which guides and sustains all of creation, the One Light that illuminates every heart and promises new growth, the warmth of loving-kindness and the brilliance of illumination to all of mankind.

The sun god Mithra (Mithra in Persian, Mitra in Sanskrit) was highly honored and well known across the entire region from India to Rome. In the ancient Vedic hymns of India, Mitra is often invoked together with Varuna so that the two are combined as 'Mitravaruna': Varuna is lord of the cosmic rhythm of the celestial spheres, while Mitra brings forth the light at dawn, which was covered by Varuna.

In the Zoroastrian religion, the sun-god Mithra was highly honored as a major deity, and interestingly, the birth of Mithra is celebrated at the eve of the winter solstice called Shab-e Yalda in Farsi (Persian).

The Romans had a great number of temples dedicated to Mithra, and the winter solstice celebration dedicated to the sun god Mithra was indeed a major event in their lives.

In the ancient world, much of the day to day life was centered on a keen awareness of the sun, the stars and the seasons. For thousands of years, the return of the sun at the time of the winter solstice has been a time of good cheer and great celebration, both secular and spiritual.

Early Christians:

The early Christians did not celebrate the birth of Jesus. The early church fathers Origen (d.255), St. Irenaeus (d. 202), and Tertullian (d. 220) do not include Christmas or its date on their lists of feasts and celebrations.

In fact, nobody really knows when Jesus was born. Church father Clement of Alexandria tells us that certain theologians had claimed to have determined not only the year of the Jesus' birth but also the day; that it took place in the 28th year of Augustus and on the 25th day of Pachon (May 20) (Stromata, I, 21). He also added that others said that he was born on the 24th or 25th of Pharmuthi (April 19 or 20). Another piece of evidence is De Paschae Computus of 243, which states that Jesus was born on March 28.

Many modern scholars, using the details given in the bible, suggest that Jesus' birthday was likely before October or after March. So, although we don't know when Jesus was born, it seems quite unlikely that it was on December 25th.

The Church In Rome:

The early church fathers in Rome were perhaps feeling a bit left out by all the celebrations that were going on at the time of the Solstice. It's all too difficult to control people who are busy celebrating for just any old reason.

It was not at all common in those days to celebrate a person's birthday, but something drastic had to be done to get the church into the celebration. So, in order to eclipse the solstice celebration of the sun god Mithra, in the middle of the 4th century after Jesus' death, the newly converted Emperor Constantine declared December 25th to be the official birthday of Jesus.

Within a few years, the altars of the temples of Mithra had been destroyed and the temples were quickly rededicated to the activities of the church of Rome. Just that suddenly, the winter solstice which was perhaps the greatest celebration known to the ancient world, was transformed into a matter of church doctrine.

In later years, the English gave this celebration the name Cristes mæsse, literally, Christ's mass... and from that we have inherited the word Christmas.

From the above, we see why many Christians today do not like to celebrate Christmas as a religious holiday. Some churches forbid their followers to be involved in this and other made up holidays, like Halloween, as well.


Now - what about Muslims celebrating - something that even the Christians should not be doing?

We see clearly, Christmas as it is celebrated today is not something associated with Judaism or Islam in their original teachings. We must ask the question, "If the prophets of Allah and their people did not engage in such acts of pagan worship, then why should we?"

Our prophet, peace be upon him, ordered us to refrain from following in the footsteps of those who had gone astray before us. He also made sure we understood our celebrations are two; namely: Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.

Even though some will join in with others to celebrate the beliefs and and practices of non-Muslim activities, we as believers, must not engage in such offensive acts toward our Lord, Allah. He hates that we involve ourselves in practices of worship not ordained by Him and we must avoid such activities at all costs.

We ask Allah to forgive us for our past mistakes and errors and to guide us to do better in the future and grant us from Him, Mercy, Compassion and Forgiveness, ameen.

Bismillah -SALAM TO ALL (peace)
We wish everyone PEACE every day!
SALAM ALAYKUM means Peace to you all!
And we hope for everyone to be under the protection and guidance of Almighty God (May Allah Guide You Always and us too)
So we are not the ones with the problem here!
Lack of knowledge of true Islam is the problem.
Celebrating false gods, idols, statues and deities other than the One God of Abraham - that is the problem for us.
Thanks for all the comments - and "Get Guided with GuideUS.TV"

What is wrong with simply sharing in the brotherhood of man without religious statement? Why can't we all just share in the joy of a new year and the fact the Sun is once again going to 'return' and bring life to our planet?
#14 Dan Arnold 2015-12-21 15:39
What is wrong with simply wishing others good will at the close of the year and the beginning of a new one? Why must it be seen as a slight to one religion or another? I am a non theist. I have no religion, but is it wrong to join the brotherhood of man and celebrate the renewal of life the 'return' of the Son symbolizes?

#12 Stephanie 2013-12-25 16:24
Did Ralph Fien just asked for help? There are no human slaughtering and moon worship in islam. Congratulations you do believe that Jesus, peace be upon him is a prophet, just like many others from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Solomon, David, and the final Muhammad, peace be on them all. Go to, read the first Chapter, go to the next mosque, come to the islam, the religion where you submit to God alone!
#11 ralph Fien 2013-12-25 10:38
Tell me what Islam says about terrorism, bombings and women oppressed. This website only tells the beauties & miracles. But what about slaughtering humans sacrifice & moon worship?
I hate the innovations and lies in Christianity & now I believe Jesus is a prophet as exclaimed in this website. But what did that help me if i don't have any religious?
Please help me, somebody!

Yes i know. its been done by the babylonians too.. Nimrod birthday is Dec, 25 and Tammuz was born Dec. 25. Really the ancient cultures personified the cosmos with human,animal,an d earthly attributes. Christmas is really about the Sun lowest progression of sunlight in relation to the north hemisphere on earth.. on Dec 22 – 24 the sunlight is at its lowest amount .becuz it appears that the Sun has not moved in its position and is located by a celestrial body that look like a cross, the sun has died on the cross. On December 25 the Sun moves up 1 degree and this the birth of a new Sun and ressurection from death.. So in truth its about the processes of our solar system and how it affect us human on earth.. Kheper!!!!

Spoilsport! Once you know the true meaning of Christmas you can never go back. But hey, I’ve saved hours by not putting up a tree not feeling the pressure to buy gifts is fabulous. Why not give gifts throughout the year when the heart yearns to do so? We don’t need no stinkin’ Christmas.
#8 fran wholim 2013-12-25 10:16
That’s a good point that many professing Christians don’t bother to ask themselves. I don’t know about others, but I feel great to be free of the bond of having to be stressed out and out of money just to keep up with an ungodly tradition, which happens to be the highest rank of holiday in witchcraft and satanism.
#7 margret karcone Gavin 2013-12-25 10:14
I am so heart broken by this. I always knew that christmas was not Jesus’ birthday, but I always thought that if I was honoring the birth of Jesus in my heart that it was ok. I don’t think it’s ok.
I am going to have to put some serious prayer time in about this. My predicament is that my husband and all of my family are not born again believers.
There's so much I'm leaning from this website, I don't know what to go..
If I start shouting from the rooftops that christmas is satanic I don’t know what type of reaction I am going to get
