Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all those who are celebrating this day. As with all religious festivals, as well as enjoying the food and everything else, we have to remember the importance of the occasion. I've found a series of articles which look at Christmas from an Islamic point of view. All of the material below is from Sound Vision:

Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, for both Muslims and Christians represents some of these things: commitment to One God, spirituality, simplicity, humbleness, kindness and generosity.
But Jesus is becoming more and more absent from the Christmas celebration that is meant to commemorate his birth. The articles on this page are written essentially as a guide to Muslims. We, however, believe that an honest criticism based on Islamic as well Christians sources does not amount to disrespect.
