A Muslim who “respects” Christians by celebrating Christmas or congratulating them on Christmas, in reality, is:

1. Blaspheming against Allah:

“And they say, “The Most Merciful has taken [for Himself] a son.” Surely you have made a monstrous statement.“ Quran 19:88-89

2. Lying against the Quran:

“And say, “Praise to Allah , who has not taken a son and has had no partner in [His] dominion and has no [need of a] protector out of weakness; and glorify Him with [great] glorification.”“ Quran 17:111

3. Disobeying RasulAllah ﷺ:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ arrived in Medina during two days in which its people were celebrating. The Prophet said, “What are these two days?” They said, “We used to celebrate these two days in the time of ignorance.” The Prophet said, “Verily, Allah has replaced these two days with two better days: Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr.” [Abu Dawud]

4. Disrespecting the Prophet Issa عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ:

“And [beware the Day] when Allah will say, “O Jesus, Son of Mary, did you say to the people, ‘Take me and my mother as deities besides Allah?’” He will say, “Exalted are You! It was not for me to say that to which I have no right. If I had said it, You would have known it. You know what is within myself, and I do not know what is within Yourself. Indeed, it is You who is Knower of the unseen.” Quran 5:116

5. Showing contempt for all of creation:

“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.” Quran 19:90-91

6. Turning his back on the Ummah and the Believers:

The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” [Abu Dawud]

7. Leading Christians to the fire:

“And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” Quran 3:85

Don’t destroy yourself with ignorance or obstinance. O Allah, guide us all.
