    Is Celebrating Christmas Halal or Haram

    I remember a Hadith where the Prophet (SAW) said “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.”

    But I was watching a Video of Sheikh Ul Islam Tahor Qadri celebrating Christmas, so was just wondering what is the Islamic viewpoint on celebrating other religions festivals:

    Celebrating christmas is most definitely haram. For one, it's celebrating the birthday of jesus,although many evidences prove that it isn't actually his birthday, but a pagan holiday called his birthday so that the pagan romans would accept christianity, but celebrating birthdays in general is un-islamic.

    Allahu a'lam

    Asalam ou alaikom wa rahmatallah wa barakto

      :wswrwb:

      It's not allowed, sister.

      There are only 2 celebrations in Islam, Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Adha.
      Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.

          Haram, not allowed, prohibited, forbidden. Same thing.

                Ok Now lets show you how wrong you are :)

                Only Allah SWT can legislate Haraam and Halal - So anything that Allah SWT has made haram and sayidina Mu7ammad confirmed it to be haram in the Sunnah thats what we have Taken as Halal and Haram .

                As for these man made deductions we say Laa yajooz or not permitted - but not haram since mankind cant legislate haram :) .

                Please people get and Islamic education .

                  Indirectly it is haram because Prophet Muhammad :saw: said, "whoever imitates a people is one of them."

                    Thats deduction , Still not legislated By Allah SWT - So it falls under our man made not permitted , which is correct since its a Pagan celebration and its not the correct date of Sayidina Eisa's birth to start with .

                    To be fair however I think you are trying to use the sense of "Whatever leads to Haram is Haram" in that case Maybe - but still it cant be applied in my opinion, Rather best say Laa Yajooz.
