~`Christmas time is a time for love`~



Just in 3 days x-mas would be celebrating all over the world. Well in whatever way you celebrate this glorious day, don't forget the real reason behind this day in its hustle bustle .

It's a virtuous and genuine holy day  .  It's a   time to celebrate the birth  of   Jesus / Prophet Isa( Peace be upon him ).

It's real message will always be the same across the globe: Message of love.

We Muslims might don't celebrate it in that glamorous way but our  faith ain't  complete if we don't believe in Jesus (peace be upon him), and other prophets (from Adam to Mohamed (peace be upon them). They are all messengers of God, gave the message of monotheism and submission to the will and did what God told them to do. So the belief in Jesus (and all other messengers of God) is required in Islam, and a requirement of being a Muslim.

We calls Jesus (pbuh)" Prophet Isa (peace be upon him)"........A messenger to God who was sent to guide and to preach the message  of God to Children of Israel with a new scripture, the Holy Injel or Gospel.

He is son of Marry. He was born preternatural   by the command of God. 

The case of Jesus with God is like the case of Adam. He created him from dust,and then He said to him ,"Be ! and he came into being.(Al-Qurran 3:59)

The whole story is mentioned in last testimonial,Al-Qurran, which  confirms  his virgin birth and a chapter of the Al-Qurran is entitled "Mariam"" (Mary). 
When the angels said, “O Mary, God gives you good news of a word from Him (God), whose name is the Messiah Jesus, son of Mary, revered in this world and the Hereafter, and one of those brought near (to God).  He will speak to the people from his cradle and as a man, and he is of the righteous.” She said, “My Lord, how can I have a child when no mortal has touched me?” He said, “So (it will be).  God creates what He wills.  If He decrees a thing, He says to it only, ‘Be!’ and it is.”  (Al-Quran, 3:45-47)
He is blesses with miracles .Moreover,we have few differences .We just don't consider,anyone , him or any other  prophet as a son of God.
Say: That God, is alone,the Eternal.Absolute .He is with every one. He is neither anyone’s father nor anyone’s son; and there is none like Him.(Al-Qurran 112 : 1  -4)
Our understanding of  God is only alone King of this universe__The higher power:God Almighty. Neither Muhammad nor Jesus came to change the basic doctrine of the belief in one God, brought by earlier prophets, but rather to confirm and renew it.These prophets :from Adam (pbuh) to Mohamed(pbuh ) are all his messengers.

We also don't consider him dead or crucified.Actually it was the plan of Jesus's enemies to crucify him, but God saved him and raised him up to him. And the likeness of Jesus was put over another man. His enemies took that man and crucified him, thinking he was Jesus.
The slew him not, nor did they crucify him but it was made dubious to them (Al -Qurran ,Chapter Nisaa,Verses 157)

That is why we believes that he is alive, raised to heaven  is there with God. He  will descend at the appointed time, end all wars, and bring peace to the world.

All I want to say  this x-mas spread love. Jesus came to this world to guide us. To make us better human. This is what x-mas all about. It's all about love, peace, and serenity.


What  more can I say:


Merry Christmas,everyone.

  1. thank you so much for your greeting sis Izdiher..here in our country we always look forward to what we call simbang gabi then afterwards we eat native delicacies like bibingka or freshly grilled rice coconut cake and we wake up at midnight, have noche buena and just enjoy looking at the fireworks outside. It is always for a season of love and being with our family.

    Love you sis *hugs hugs*..mwahhhhhhch ;)

  3. Izdiher, I knew it, but you are one of a kind. One of the first message I read around from a Muslim wishing Christians an Happy Christmas. I think God answered my prayer in the message you shares. He found me quite sad these past weeks. At 2 days of Christmas, I found love is in many hearts.
    For me Christmas would me a time to celebrate the Birth of Jesus (PBUH). I don't think Jesus is the son of God, I think we are all children of God. So all new birth on earth has to be celebrated, as a gift from God.
    Now it's also a time for sharing love and be with family. Maybe this year I will experienced the true meaning of Christmas, as my family and my husband are away. I will be on my own and will share a diner with a mum and her little boy.
    Have a lovely day and be blessed always, as your heart is full of love, beautiful love. xoxo

  6. HEY Izdiher Jan.

    Thank you for addressing our Christmas celebrations in your inimitable fashion

    A most beautiful picture of Christmas balls hanging, thank you.

    And your thoughts are, well--your thoughts. That is what each of us must eventually learn to love...another's freedom to express their beliefs without being met with enmity.

    The best PEACE for you, my friend!

  18. At the time I write this, it's Christmas in my country, Malaysia. I can hear the sounds of fireworks. Over here, we're multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religous. The festive mood is in the air. Shopping complexes have beautiful Christmas decorations which had been displayed for a few weeks prior to Christmas. The sale girls put on Santa's hats. Every celebration here is celebrated grandly where we do have "open house" - everyone is welcome to enjoy the delicacies and dishes for the celebration.

    I'm happy to say that we're living in peace and harmony despite our different beliefs and cultures.

    Happy holidays to you! :)

  22. Thanks for this post İzdihër! I truly appreciate your greeting :) We have a tradition like early morning mass. We don't celebrate like some americans do that hang stockings and wait for santa. hehe, For us, our dear parents are our santa. Hmmm, we have noche buena and we praise Jesus and pray with my family. For me, Christmas would always be dear to my heart. Thank you very much :)

  40. What an interesting post right there; I love all holiday blog posts, but this one really stands out. (: My family and I pretty much just opened gifts this year, but every gift was very sincere and heart-felt. I got Justin Bieber's Christmas album (I'm 17), and a lot of other awesome stuff. To make a long story short, I had a pretty decent Christmas this year. I hope you did, too! May your New Years be something to remember, as well. Take care!

  41. I really enjoyed this post!

    Here in Denmark the main celebration is on Christmas Eve, in my family we usually have the big Christmas dinner, sing Christmas psalms and then open the presents. It was a beautiful, relaxed, calm and enjoyable Christmas with my family :)

  42. What a lovely post! Thank you for explaining, I wondered what Muslims believed about Jesus. We as Christians believe He is Jesus the Christ - yes, the Son of God, but actually God Himself. We believe in only ONE God, but in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is also the Word of God. It's hard to explain the 3 in 1 concept - maybe like if there was 1)you, 2)your words, and 3)your spirit, but all you. And we do believe He was crucified, taking all our sins upon Him even though He is sinless - but then He rose from the dead, so He is alive, and now He sits at the right hand of Father God. In our family, we don't have Santa, just Jesus, and we celebrate His birth with church, prayer, singing, feasting, and gift giving, because of the Gift of Jesus that God gave us. You are right, God is Love and Jesus brought peace on earth, goodwill to men. Thank you for this post and your friendship.
