It is also no secret that nowhere in the Scriptures does it say that Prophet Jesus’ (pbuH) miraculous birth actually took place in December. There was no coniferous tree at the place where Jesus (pbuH) was born, instead the Qur’an tells us about his mother Mary that “the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree” (Surat Maryam 19:23). So at least, there should be a palm tree instead of a white, snow-covered coniferous tree. Moreover, he wasn’t born during the winter season at all, because the Qur’an tells us further that on this palm tree, there were ripe, fresh dates (Surat Maryam 19:25).
We Muslims love our Prophet Jesus and we love our Christian fellow-citizens. And this love requires us not to take part in these blasphemous celebrations but to remind the world instead, of what it really means to love Jesus (pbuH): To follow his teachings and those of the Prophet that followed him by practicing what he did. When he miraculously spoke to the people in the cradle, he said: “Indeed, I am the servant of Allah . He has given me the Scripture and made me a prophet. And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and zakah as long as I remain alive and [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive." (Surat Maryam 19:30-33). And Jesus further said: “And indeed, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.“ (19: 36).
Christmas is the day when one of the gravest sins is being commemorated and fervently celebrated: “And they say: The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son. You have done an atrocious thing. The heavens almost rupture therefrom and the earth splits open and the mountains collapse in devastation that they attribute to the Most Merciful a son. And it is not appropriate for the Most Merciful that He should take a son.” (Surat Maryam 19:88-92).
No, Jesus would never have called himself the biological son of God. If we truly loved Jesus, we should believe like he did that “Allah is One, Allah, the Eternal Refuge. He neither begets nor is born. Nor is there to Him any equivalent.” (Surat Al-Ikhlas 112).
