00:00:57--> 00:01:17

Yeah, you heard lady in Turku our Kulu said EDA, your slick Latin American way of Zulu back home. Whether you be a la hora Sula, who saw Cardiff has chosen how we another

00:01:18--> 00:01:20

My dear brothers and sisters.

00:01:22--> 00:01:25

Today is the 25th of December.

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

On this day,

00:01:29--> 00:01:35

the Christians they celebrate the birth of the ISA Isley he set out

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

as loosens we have no problem with the birth of the ISA and he his salon.

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

He was born

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

he existed,

00:01:48--> 00:01:51

but as a prophet and a messenger of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.

00:01:53--> 00:01:59

The problem is not with his birth, because ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada spoke of his birth in the Quran.

00:02:01--> 00:02:04

A detailed version of what his mother went through Miriam

00:02:06--> 00:02:07

as she gave him birth.

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

But the problem is

00:02:12--> 00:02:14

not his birth, but rather

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

attributing to him a father

00:02:21--> 00:02:25

and attributing him as a son to Allah subhana wa.

00:02:28--> 00:02:31

And so speaking about this in that same Surah Surah Maryam

00:02:33--> 00:02:48

Allah subhana wa Tada says, we'll talk about Russia and holida refer the Jake to chi and eat da they say they are rushed man. The most compassionate that he has taken us on

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

what an outrageous claim you have made.

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

To candle center what we are told and I mean who

00:03:00--> 00:03:04

what a shout out what I feel will G bad.

00:03:06--> 00:03:07

And I will live rush man in

00:03:10--> 00:03:13

the heavens are about to burst.

00:03:15--> 00:03:16

The road is about to split.

00:03:17--> 00:03:21

The mountain is about to crumble to pieces.

00:03:22--> 00:03:33

Why? in protest of this claim that Allah subhanahu wa Tada had a son. Why? Because these

00:03:34--> 00:03:39

creations of Allah subhana wa Tada recognize the Oneness of Allah subhanahu

00:03:42--> 00:03:47

wa Jung believed a Russian agent told me that it is not befitting

00:03:49--> 00:03:52

to the Majesty of Allah subhanahu wa Johanna

00:03:53--> 00:03:54

to take a son.

00:03:56--> 00:03:57

And so my dear brothers and sisters

00:04:01--> 00:04:03

ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada says,

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

in Hadith Quincy

00:04:09--> 00:04:15

mentioned in Al Bukhari, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Khan Allah,

00:04:16--> 00:04:18

Allah subhanho wa Taala says

00:04:20--> 00:04:24

kill the valley Ibnu Adam wollam your cool language Alec

00:04:27--> 00:04:29

will shatter many iblue Adam whatever you're cool with

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

that the son of Adam

00:04:34--> 00:04:37

this believed in me lied about me.

00:04:38--> 00:04:39

And he had no right to do so.

00:04:42--> 00:04:43

And the son of Adam

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

insulted me

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

and he had no right to do so.

00:04:50--> 00:04:56

frenetic the whoo hoo ei for Zana and Neela. AKA deal will

00:04:57--> 00:04:57

come

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

As for him lying about me,

00:05:03--> 00:05:11

then it was his claim that I am not able to bring him back to life as he was,

00:05:13--> 00:05:15

what a measure to EI

00:05:16--> 00:05:24

for Komu, who in the word for Suhani, a tequila Sahiba. And

00:05:25--> 00:05:27

as for him insulting me,

00:05:29--> 00:05:32

than it was his seeing that I have a son.

00:05:33--> 00:05:40

So glorify, be me, may Allah be glorified from taking a wife, a partner,

00:05:42--> 00:05:43

or from taking a son.

00:05:45--> 00:05:47

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

today is a day

00:05:51--> 00:05:54

in which Christians remind one another,

00:05:55--> 00:05:57

Allah subhanahu, WA Tada

00:05:59--> 00:06:01

having taken her son,

00:06:02--> 00:06:03

even though

00:06:05--> 00:06:09

even though the actual date of his birth is unknown,

00:06:10--> 00:06:17

and to this day, the various Christian sects dispute whether it was a 25th or another day.

00:06:19--> 00:06:31

And so what we see today in this part of the world is because they have adopted the DEA as being the 25th. But if you go to other Christian countries, they celebrate Christmas in the beginning of January.

00:06:33--> 00:06:36

All Christian theologians and historians agree

00:06:38--> 00:06:47

that the date of the birth of Asa having his salaam was only decided upon after the third century,

00:06:49--> 00:06:50

after the third century.

00:06:52--> 00:06:59

And so if they were unable to preserve, to preserve their own scripture from becoming altered,

00:07:01--> 00:07:08

then what you expect about the birth of the ISA Hadees salaam, and the date in which he was born.

00:07:10--> 00:07:11

In fact,

00:07:12--> 00:07:17

if we were to research, the history of the origins

00:07:18--> 00:07:20

of this celebration of Christmas, we see

00:07:22--> 00:07:31

that it was something that was adopted by the Christians, when Christianity spread into Europe, and especially into the northern parts of Europe.

00:07:32--> 00:07:45

And so if we were to research and study, the origins of history, we would find that could be traced back to ritual paganistic celebrations

00:07:48--> 00:08:13

that are related to the winter season in the northern parts of Europe. And so the pagans had certain ritualistic beliefs about winter, and about how we become so dark. And they would attach themselves to spirits, and to other objects, like the pine tree,

00:08:14--> 00:08:25

and other objects that they would become attached to, and they would have beliefs in. And then when the Christians came, they adopted these practices, practices and rituals

00:08:26--> 00:08:29

until it became a part of Christianity.

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

And this is the case with many other

00:08:34--> 00:08:43

traditions, traditions and customs and rituals that we find in Christianity today. Its origins can be traced back to what

00:08:44--> 00:08:45

can be traced back

00:08:46--> 00:08:58

to paganistic rituals and beliefs that were predominant in Europe. My dear brothers and sisters, once we understand this, we understand that Christmas

00:09:00--> 00:09:03

is a non Muslim, Christian,

00:09:04--> 00:09:05

Western

00:09:06--> 00:09:11

paganistic celebration that has nothing to do with Islam.

00:09:13--> 00:09:16

And so a Muslim who knows

00:09:18--> 00:09:21

what his Eman in Allah subhanho wa Taala means

00:09:22--> 00:09:31

a Muslim who recognizes the meaning of what he attests to, when he says a shadow to Allah either in Allah,

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

the Muslim

00:09:35--> 00:09:53

who has a strong Muslim identity, the Muslim who has certain principles that he abides by that he understands that these are my principles, and there are red lines that I will not cross

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

did he recognizes everything that we mentioned

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

above

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Christmas

00:10:02--> 00:10:07

but the unfortunate reality is that most Muslims today

00:10:08--> 00:10:13

are not of that category. And so many many misses city

00:10:15--> 00:10:19

who Islam is not something that they value much

00:10:21--> 00:10:24

they don't have a strong sense of their Islamic identity

00:10:25--> 00:10:29

they identify themselves as being Canadian before being Muslim

00:10:32--> 00:10:43

they're still searching for an identity that can conform between Islam and your western culture.

00:10:44--> 00:10:49

Such Muslims My dear brothers and sisters are those who want to try to fit in

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

who claimed that they want

00:10:54--> 00:10:56

to strike a balance

00:10:58--> 00:11:02

they want to be accepted by those around them.

00:11:03--> 00:11:04

They want to have fun

00:11:06--> 00:11:07

with their non Muslim friends.

00:11:09--> 00:11:16

So they are the ones who are confused and they are the ones who find no problem

00:11:18--> 00:11:35

in greeting non Muslims on their days of celebration in wishing them Merry Christmas or participating with them in the deer celebration whether it be directly or indirectly

00:11:36--> 00:11:43

according to Cody had a one stop federal law How do you want to come when he said you didn't see me nothing could lead them they know

00:11:44--> 00:11:47

first of all few who in know who who have a photo Rahim?

00:12:00--> 00:12:01

hamdulillah

00:12:03--> 00:12:06

was shook ruler who told me he wanted it.

00:12:07--> 00:12:08

Welsh Edward

00:12:47--> 00:12:54

terms of some now congenitally HUD, what topple law her in Allah for the room be matched on our own

00:12:55--> 00:12:57

Nigeria brothers and sisters.

00:13:00--> 00:13:01

years ago

00:13:04--> 00:13:05

the Muslim community

00:13:07--> 00:13:09

used to recognize

00:13:11--> 00:13:12

that partaking

00:13:14--> 00:13:18

in non Muslim celebrations was a red line

00:13:19--> 00:13:26

participating in non Muslim celebrations whether they are religious or non religious,

00:13:28--> 00:13:30

that it is haram clear cut.

00:13:32--> 00:13:35

But what happened over the last few years

00:13:36--> 00:13:39

as Muslims started to integrate more and more

00:13:41--> 00:13:43

with non Muslims,

00:13:44--> 00:13:45

they started to adopt

00:13:47--> 00:13:54

many teachings and practices that go against the very foundations of our deen

00:13:55--> 00:13:57

and so that is why you find many Muslims

00:13:59--> 00:14:01

asking what is the big deal

00:14:03--> 00:14:07

with wishing non Muslims Merry Christmas or gifting them

00:14:09--> 00:14:28

something on this day, whether it be food or otherwise, many of them are wondering, why can we not greet them when they greet us on haved? Why can we not let our kids to have fun?

00:14:29--> 00:14:31

Why do we have to be so strict?

00:14:34--> 00:14:36

Isn't it intolerance

00:14:38--> 00:14:39

and hatred?

00:14:41--> 00:14:45

To see that we can participate in such events.

00:14:46--> 00:14:51

And so my dear brothers and sisters to answer these questions we say first and foremost

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

regarding Christmas specifically,

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

out of all of the other non Muslim

00:15:00--> 00:15:00

holidays

00:15:02--> 00:15:05

we say specifically that wishing

00:15:07--> 00:15:09

them happiness on this day

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

is basically you as a Muslim.

00:15:15--> 00:15:18

Wishing them happiness

00:15:19--> 00:15:22

that ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada had a son, when have you ever been?

00:15:24--> 00:15:26

And so my dear brothers and sisters,

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

instead of being concerned

00:15:31--> 00:15:38

about the * that they are involved in, what you are basically seeing is that

00:15:39--> 00:15:42

Oh Allah, I believe that you are learning.

00:15:43--> 00:15:48

And I believe when you said the fool who Allah Who ahead that you are running,

00:15:49--> 00:15:57

Allahu Samad. Let me your lead, what have you learned? What am your Kula who for one ahead, I believe all of that.

00:15:59--> 00:16:02

But let me on this one day of the year,

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

to disbelieve in that

00:16:06--> 00:16:17

and to recognize that you have a son. This is the essence of what we are seeing when we wish them a merry Christmas on this day. Secondly,

00:16:19--> 00:16:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:16:23--> 00:16:25

If we were to study his Syrah,

00:16:27--> 00:16:28

we would find

00:16:29--> 00:16:31

that he needed a point.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

He made it a point

00:16:35--> 00:16:37

to oppose

00:16:38--> 00:16:40

the non Muslims

00:16:41--> 00:16:50

in all of their practices, and traditions, but especially on their holidays, and there are celebrations.

00:16:52--> 00:17:09

And so we have example, after example of how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would make it a point to teach the companions that we don't take part in their celebrations. Rather we have our own celebrations.

00:17:10--> 00:17:12

What was he teaching them?

00:17:13--> 00:17:28

He was teaching them that a Muslim is unique and different. We have our beliefs, we have our customs, we have our ways and they have theirs.

00:17:29--> 00:17:51

And by doing so, he was implementing what Allah subhanahu wa taala taught in the Quran. Kalia, you can have your own law Abu Mata Abu Dune, or disbelievers. I do worship what you worship. What I ultimately do, no matter how good and you don't worship, what I worship,

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

but clear line was made. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam put it into practice. And so what he taught the Companions is that the Muslims are unique and different.

00:18:05--> 00:18:14

And we don't take part in their holidays and their celebrations to send a clear message across

00:18:16--> 00:18:32

that whoever does so, then he becomes one of them. When Tisha Habib come in, for who I mean whom, Whoever imitates people, that he is one of them. Thirdly,

00:18:34--> 00:18:36

wishing the kuffaar

00:18:38--> 00:18:40

on their religious holidays,

00:18:42--> 00:18:47

is haram by unanimous consensus of the scholars of Islam.

00:18:50--> 00:18:52

There is an edge now on this,

00:18:53--> 00:18:59

there is a unanimous consensus, open the books and you find

00:19:01--> 00:19:03

from the very beginning of Islam

00:19:04--> 00:19:05

until

00:19:06--> 00:19:08

perhaps only a century ago,

00:19:09--> 00:19:29

there is not one disagreement among the scholars of Assam regarding this and it was only in modern times, that we find fatawa appearing where we have so called scholars per meeting this is blocking him he says

00:19:30--> 00:19:32

it blocked him Rahim Allah he says,

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

greeting the disbelievers on religious celebrations of Cofer that are specific to them is haram by unanimous consensus of the scholars, as is greeting them on their festivals and their days of fast, such as saying, Have a blessed festival or greeting to you on your festival.

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

no different to saying Merry Christmas and so on. He says, if the one who says this has been saved from Cooper,

00:20:11--> 00:20:14

if the one who says this is saved from Cooper,

00:20:15--> 00:20:21

then it is still one of them Hydromat it is still one of the forbidding things to do.

00:20:22--> 00:21:04

And it is no different than congratulating someone when he makes sujood to the cross. Rather, it is even a greater sin with Allah, and more despised than congratulating someone for drinking alcohol, or for murdering someone or for committing Zina. He says many of those who have no value for the deen they fall into this and they do not realize the offensiveness of their action. Whoever congratulate someone for his sin for his video for his cover, he exposes himself

00:21:05--> 00:21:10

to the anger and the Wrath of Allah subhanahu. What?

00:21:12--> 00:21:12

Fourthly,

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

by wishing

00:21:17--> 00:21:18

Christians,

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

Merry Christmas on this day, or participating

00:21:25--> 00:21:26

in any way,

00:21:27--> 00:21:31

the Muslim is sending a message across to them.

00:21:33--> 00:21:44

The I have no problem with your religion. I have no problem with your beliefs. I have no problem with you associating a partner or a son with Allah.

00:21:45--> 00:21:50

To You is your religion to me is mine. Isn't that what Islam teaches?

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

And so instead

00:21:53--> 00:22:20

of giving them Dawa, instead of taking the opportunity to give them Dawa on this day, we Muslims are congratulating them, or wishing our happy sentiments to them, or participating with them. By doing so we're sending a message across, that there's nothing wrong with your beliefs, stay upon your religion.

00:22:22--> 00:22:26

You don't have to. You don't have to accept Islam.

00:22:28--> 00:22:29

And that's why

00:22:30--> 00:22:32

mudita to me, Allah have mercy upon him.

00:22:34--> 00:22:35

He used to say

00:22:37--> 00:22:55

that, on the occasion of Christmas, I used to make it a point. And I will take the advantage on this day, to give dower to the Christians. Why because it was an opportunity to show them the reality of who a Saudi Salam was.

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

And the reality of the corrupt nature of this religion.

00:23:03--> 00:23:11

That became what it became from the original teachings of Elissa Alia Salaam. Finally, my dear brothers and sisters.

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

A Muslim

00:23:15--> 00:23:18

is one who submits.

00:23:19--> 00:23:55

He is one who submit wholeheartedly to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is the very meaning of a Muslim. Islam does not translate to peace, yes, but a true translation of Islam, submissiveness and so on Muslim is one who submits he is one who has principles that he stands by, he is one who has red lines, that he recognizes that he cannot cross and His standard of knowing

00:23:57--> 00:23:59

what is permissible and what is not.

00:24:01--> 00:24:19

Should I do this? Should I not do this? Should I celebrate this? Should I not celebrate this? Should I participate with them? Should I not? His standard of measuring that is not the people around him.

00:24:20--> 00:24:54

Many Muslims we look at followers of other religions, non Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, atheists, people who don't ascribe themselves to any religions, and they say look, they are participating in Christmas. They are wishing Merry Christmas. So this shows that it's not something specific to Christians. So why can't we? The answer is that our standard of measuring these things is not the people around us.

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

But rather, it is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has taught us

00:25:01--> 00:25:05

And what His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught us.

00:25:06--> 00:25:09

And so my dear brothers and sisters, yes.

00:25:11--> 00:25:13

When we see all of this,

00:25:14--> 00:25:16

on the one hand

00:25:18--> 00:25:26

we are disassociating ourselves from the Khufu and the ship of a people. But on the other hand, he does not mean

00:25:28--> 00:25:38

that we show intolerance and we show hatred and animosity, and we transgress against others. This is not what we are calling to.

00:25:39--> 00:25:59

So ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada it says, lie on how Kamala who I will lady that love you caught you rock confit dini? When am you free to come mean dare come unterberg Who whom were to proceed to lay them in the law how you hit boom oxy queen, Allah subhanahu wa taala does not forbid you

00:26:00--> 00:26:01

from being unkind

00:26:03--> 00:26:25

from acting fairly and with justice with those of the disbelievers who do not fight you because of your deen and who do not drive you out from your homes. In Allah, you have been Moxie clean. Allah loves those who act justly and fairly.

00:26:26--> 00:26:54

But what this surah what it teaches us, and this shows us the importance of always going back to the context of the ayat of the Quran. Sometimes we find Muslims, cutting and pasting, Aya and saying, Look what Islam teaches. Let us go back to Surah to remove tacky now, look at what the Torah teaches us from the very first area until the very last.

00:26:56--> 00:27:05

What it teaches us is a lesson in Alborada from Kosovo, and ship

00:27:07--> 00:27:14

to decide that the Muslim must disassociate himself from Cooper, and from ship

00:27:15--> 00:27:23

from all ideologies that have gone that go against Islam and the teachings of Islam. And Allah mentions in the sutra

00:27:25--> 00:27:30

the example of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and how he disassociated himself

00:27:31--> 00:27:33

from the culture and the shock of his people.

00:27:35--> 00:27:36

But then,

00:27:37--> 00:27:39

when a Muslim reads these or not,

00:27:41--> 00:27:44

he wonders, does this then mean that

00:27:47--> 00:28:12

I should show animosity and aggression against the kuffaar so then this is why Allah subhanaw taala revealed this higher in Allah that Allah subhanahu wa niagen Hakimullah who I need Lydia you caught I need Latina love you cardi Rue confit Dini, whether you agree to come in dare come into our room or toxic to La him in Allah you hymnbooks

00:28:14--> 00:28:16

and so we ask Allah subhanahu wa taala

00:28:17--> 00:28:24

to show us the truth as being the truth and to make us to follow it. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:28:25--> 00:28:46

to make us from among those who understand their Deen well and to make us from among those who put into practice, what Allah subhanho wa Taala is pleased with and is satisfied with not what the people are pleased with. And what they are satisfied with.

00:28:48--> 00:28:58
