[Before evaluating the bitter realities behind the celebrations of Christmas it’s very important for the readers to perceive the historical distortion of the Divine Scriptures (Torah, Zabour, and Injeel) done at the name of RELIGION. This ethical Monopoly not only manipulated the true Message of God but also deviated innocent Christians and destroyed their lives. Now, the point is who invented this parasitic theology called CHRISTIANITY? and this Mother of all Evils later on gave birth to many offspring like Christmas, Halloween, Valentine, Easter, new year , Lent, Advent, Pentecost, Carnival, Epiphany, Candle-mas, Imbolic.. etc etc]
Let’s have a ride…..
Monotheism (Tawheed, believe in one God) is the core gravity and foundational concept in Islam. Muslims believe in one God who created the Universe and has power over His every creation. He is unique and exalted above everything HE creates, and His greatness can’t be compared to His creation. He is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe who created everything for a reason. This Islamic understanding of God is distinct from all other religions and beliefs in various respects since it is based on a pure and clear understanding of monotheism.
Allah (subhanawatallah) clearly says:
‘’ He is God: there is no god other than Him. It is He who knows what is hidden as well as what is in the open, He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. He is God: there is no God other than Him, the Controller, the Holy One, Source of Peace, Granter of Security, Guardian over all, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Truly Great; God is far above anything they consider to be His partner. He is God: the Creator, the Originator, and the Bestower forms. The best names belong to Him. Everything in the Heavens and earth glorifies Him: He is the All-Almighty, the All-Wise.”
At other place He says:
“Allah! : None has the right to be worshiped but He, the Ever Living, the One who Sustains and Protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the Heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen too them in the Hereafter. And they will never encompass anything of His Knowledge except that which He Wills. His Chair extends over the Heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. (This verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursi).’’ 
The safeguarding of Tawheed is the primary objective of all Islamic teachings, commandments and legislation.
The Christians believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God is simply based on deviation and infiltration of paganism in Christianity. We Muslims take strong exception to the Christian dogma that, ‘Jesus is the only begotten son, begotten not made’. This is what the Christian is made to repeat from childhood in his catechism.
The Quran regarded Jesus as a righteous Messenger of Allah (subhanawatallah) and rejected him as’ being God’ or ‘Begotten son of God’. Allah (subhanawatallah) has strongly condemned such allegations at various places in the Glorious Qur’an;
“And they say:’’ The Most Gracious (Allah) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say:’ Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son (Jesus),and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels and others).’’Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing. Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins. That they ascribe a son to the Most Gracious (Allah). But it is not suitable for (the majesty of) the Most Gracious (Allah) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children). There is none in the heavens and the earth but comes to the Most Gracious (Allah) as a slave. Verily, He knows each of them, and has counted them a full counting. And every one of them will come to Him alone on the Day of Resurrection (without any helper, or protector or defender)’’
Narrated ‘Ubadah bin As-Samit (raziallahuanha) that Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said;
‘’Whoever testifies that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah Alone, Who is without partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger, and that ‘Isa (Jesus) is the slave of Allah and His Messenger, and His Word which He bestowed in Maryam (Mary) and a spirit (created) from Him, and the Paradise and Hell-fire are realities, Allah will admit him into Paradise, whatever his deeds might be.’’
Surah Ikhlas is a password of Tawheed in which Allah (subhanawatallah) clearly announces;
“Say (O Muhammad): ” He is Allah, (the) one, Allah is the self-sufficient Master. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there was none equal or, comparable to Him.”
TEACHINGS OF JESUS (PEACE BE UPON HIM) ABOUT GOD:
As reported by the INJEEL, Jesus urged his followers to abide by the Law (Torah) and not abolish it. He always referred to it and to the teachings of previous Prophets throughout his teachings, which confirms the Islamic faith concerning the Prophets and Messengers as propagators of the same faith.
The INJEEL reported Jesus saying:
‘’ I did not come to abolish the law or the Prophets but to fulfill. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen will disappear from the law until everything is accomplished anyone who breaks the least of one of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
‘’ I was only sent to the lost sheep of the house of Israel’’
Now let’s compare these verses with the Qur’anic verses:
‘’And (Remember) when the Angels said: ‘’ O Maryam (marry)! Verily, Allah has chosen you, purified you (from polytheism and disbelief), and chosen you among the women of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinn (of her lifetime).’ ‘’ O Maryam (Marry)! Submit yourself with obedience to your Lord (Allah, by worshipping none but Him Alone) and prostrate yourself, and bow down along with Ar-Raki’un (those who bow down).’’This is (a part) of the news of the Ghaib (Unseen, i.e., the news of the past nations of which you have no knowledge) which We revealed to you (O Muhammad peace be upon him). You were not with them, when they cast lots with their pens as to which of them should be charged with the care of Maryam (Mary): not were you with them when they disputed. (Remember) when the Angels said: ‘’ O Maryam (Marry)! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word [‘’Be!’’-and he was! I.e. Isa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Marry)] from Him, his name will be the Messiah ‘Isa (Jesus), the son of Maryam (Mary), held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allah,’’‘’ He will speak to the people, in the cradle and in manhood, and he will be one of the righteous. ’She said:’’ O my Lord! How shall I have a son when no man has touched me.’’ He said: “So (it will be) for Allah creates what He wills. When He has decreed something, He says to it only: ‘’ Be! —- And it is. And He( Allah ) will teach him [ ‘Isa( the Jesus)] the book and Al-Hikmah (i.e. the Sunnah, the faultless speech of the Prophets , wisdom), ( and) the Taurat ( Torah) and the Injil( Gospel). And will make him [ Isa ( Jesus)] a Messenger to the children of Israel ( saying):’’ I have come to you with a sign from your Lord, that I design for you out of clay, a figure like that of a bird, and breath into it , and it becomes bird by Allah’s Leave. And I inform you of what you eat, and what you store in your houses. Surely, is that a sign for you, if you are believers. And I have come confirming that which was before me of the Taurat (Torah), and to make lawful to you part of what was forbidden to you, and I have come to you with a proof from your Lord. So fear Allah and obey me.
‘’Truly, Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him (Alone). This is a Straight Path. Then when ‘Isa (Jesus) came to know of their disbelief, he said:’’ Who will be my helpers in Allah’s cause?’’ Al- Hawariyyun (the disciples) said:
‘’ We are the helpers of Allah (i.e. we will strive in His Cause!); we believe in Allah, and bear witness that we are Muslims (i.e. we submit to Allah).’’
‘’Our Lord! We believe in what You have sent down, and we follow the Messenger [Isa (Jesus)]; so write us down among those who bear witness (to the truth, i.e. La ilaha illallah—- none has the right to be worshipped but Allah).
And they (disbelievers) plotted [to kill ‘Isa (Jesus); and Allah planned too. And Allah is the Best of those who plan.
And (remember) when Allah said: ‘’O Isa (Jesus) I will make you sleep and will raise you to Myself and clear you
( of the forged statement that Isa( Jesus) is Allah’s son of those who disbelief, and I will make those who follow you ( monotheists, who worship none but Allah ) superior to those who disbelief [ in the oneness of Allah , or disbelieve in some of His Messengers , e.g, Muhammad ( peace be upon him) , Isa( JESUS) , Musa( Moses) , or in His Holy Books , e.g, the Taurat( Torah) , the Injil ( Gospel) , the Quran ] till the Day of Resurrection. Then you will listen to Me and I will judge between you in the matters in which you used to dispute.’’ And of those who believe (in the oneness of Allah) and do righteous good deeds, Allah will pay them their reward in full. And Allah does not like the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong doers). This is what We recite to you (O Muhammad peace be upon him) of the Verses and the Wise Reminder (i.e. Quran). Verily, the likeness of ‘Isa (Jesus) before Allah is the likeness of Adam. He created him from dust, then (He) said to him; ‘’ Be! “—- and he was. (This is) the truth from your Lord, so be not of those who doubt. Then whoever disputes with you concerning him [‘Isa (Jesus) after (all this) knowledge that has come to you [i.e. Isa (Jesus) being a slave of Allah, and having no share in Divinity], say;
( O Muhammad peace be upon him) ; ‘’ Come, let us call our sons and your sons , our women and your women , ourselves and yourselves—- then we pray and Invoke ( sincerely) the Curse of Allah upon those who lie.’’
Verily, this is the true narrative. And indeed, Allah is the Al-Mighty and Al-Wise. And if they turn away (and do not accept these proofs and evidences), then surely, Allah is All-Aware of those who do mischief.’’
As we could see, the Qur’anic verses are almost identical to the two verses OF INJEEL, except for the additional details that the Qur’an reveals to the story. These verses clearly show that Jesus did not come with different religion, nor was he sent to preach any other people beside the Jews, as reported by both the INJEEL and Qur’an.
Mathew 15/27 also refutes Christianity’s claim of ‘’ the Universal Nature’’ of the message of Jesus. It clearly states that Jesus’s message was not universal. Jesus was not sent to all mankind, yet only the lost sheep of the house of Israel, to pave the way for the final Messenger of God (Muhammad peace be upon him) with God’s final revelation to mankind. Likewise, the Prophet of Islam Muhammad peace be upon him did not come with a new religion, nor did he come to abolish the teachings of the Prophets and Messengers before him.
Is the Bible true word of God? :
No it’s not… proof?… proof is :
Allah (subhanawatallah) is the Author of previous Divine Revelations like, Torah, Zaboor, Injeel and the last and final Message ‘The Glorious Quran’, but who is the writer of the doctrine called ‘BIBLE’?… the word Bible is never mentioned in the Glorious Quran not even a single time and not even in Sahi Hadith… so where did it come from?… The bitter reality is Constantine and his bishops VOTED a bunch of books AS THE WORD OF GOD in 325 AD. They pick and choose what they want in the Bible. Then burn all other Pre–Christian document that proved the religion was fictitious (391 AD). In order to make the religion popular they kill everyone who don’t agree with the new religion and made laws prohibiting any public talk about religion. It was illegal to disagree with the church in 380 AD… But today Christians running around with the Bible, don’t know that what they are believing in was purposely planned out for them to believe by men.
Renowned scholar Sheikh Ahmad Deedat explains what is the real Torah and Injeel:
‘’ See the bulk of the people Muslims, even learned Muslims, they really don’t know what the Bible is. I have been lecturing in the Middle East, in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain, and at times those of our brothers there in the Middle East, they would like to have my lectures translated. So, and I hear the translator translating the subject that I had been speaking on. For example, ‘’ What the Bible says about Muhammad (saws)? So the translator said,’’ what the Torah says about the Muhammad peace be upon him)? I interrupted the man, I said: ‘’ I dint say the Torah.’’ So he corrects himself. He says, ‘’ What the Injeel says about Muhammad (saws).’’ I said,’’ I dint say Injeel. I said ‘What the Bible …’ Bible means a book. It comes from the Greek word Byblos. Byblos means a book. From here they get the word Bible. Holy Bible means Holy book. Instead of saying Torah, Zabour, Injeel. So what is happening is that the Muslim gets caught out before he starts, by admitting that this is Torah, or Zabour, or Injeel. The Bible is not the Torah, is not the Zabur, and is not the Injeel. Now what we believe in is, we believe in 4 Heavenly books. And we name them, we say,’’ we believe in the Torah, we believe in the Zabur. We believe in the Injeel. And we believe in the Furqan. Furqan is the Holy Quran. Now what is Torah? Torah is a revelation, the Wahhi that Allah s.w.t gave to Hazrat Musa (a.s). That is the Torah. We believe that Hazrat Musa (a.s) was a man appointed by Allah s.w.t, God Almighty and whatever instructions were given through him is the Torah. Whatever. Was given in the book from? No. Allah gave by word form. Wahhi. Torah and Zabur, Zabur is a revelation, the Wahhi that Allah s.w.t gave to Hazrat Dawud a.s. We believe that what was given was from Allah. The Injeel is a revelation, the Wahhi that Allah s.w.t gave to Hazrat Eesa a.s, Jesus Christ. So whatever he preached was from Allah. We acknowledged it was the truth. But where is now the Torah, the Zabur, and the Injeel? Where are they? The New Testament, it begins, every new book begins. Matthew. He says,’’ The Gospel according to Saint Matthew.’’ ‘’ The Gospel according to Saint Mark’’. ‘’ The Gospel according to Saint Luke’’. ‘’ The Gospel according to Saint John’’. I’m asking, ‘’ what is According… According…. According…’ Why ‘According to…? According to….? ‘According to…? I have written many books as you know well. But you will find my name at,’’ By Ahmad Deedat’’. It’s not, ‘’ According to Ahmad Deedat.’’ If you wrote it, thinking that I had said or meant such a such thing, then you can say,’’ According to Mr. Deedat…. ‘’ You know. ‘’ This is his Theory.’’ Or ‘’ this is what he said.’’ It might not be true. You might have misunderstood. But if I write a book I put my name. Mathew dint write his name. Luke dint write his name. John dint write his name. These are anonymous books. And you think, well may be you know could only come from Mr. Deedat. So you put Deedat’s name. You have no right to do that. Nobody has a right to do that. You have done injustice to the man if he had not said that. You might not be quoting exact. So, ‘’According to Matthew, According to Mark, According to Luke, According to Saint John’’. And internal evidence also shows that they dint write the book. This is what you see from the outside, on the heading. They put, the Christians put the heading. And the Bible tells us, this Bible, it tells us, Mathew tells us that Jesus went to a certain place. And he preached the Gospel. In Arabic Injeel the Gospel means’’ The Good News’’. Translated into Arabic, Injeel. He went and preached the Injeel. Mark says he went to a certain other place and he preached the Injeel. Gospel. Luke tells us that he went to certain place and preached the Injeel. Gospel. And John tells us that Jesus went to a certain other place and he preached the Gospel. Injeel. Iam asking, did he carry a book around under his arm? Did he? That every time he took it out?. He’d say,’’ In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.’’ Is that what he was doing? No. Whatever revelation (Wahhi) Allah gave him that is the Injeel. Now they tell you, the Christians themselves, you don’t have to do any homework yourself. With regards to the Bible. You don’t have to make any new discoveries. Whatever they give you, learn from them and use it. They tell you, now they translate the Bible, the New Testament into Arabic. They have for the Arabs 11 different Arabic Bibles. I have samples of them. 11 different, I thought there was only 1 Arabic language? But I am now told that there are 11 different dialects. And every dialect group they say,’’ Look we got it for you.’’ You are Palestinian? We got it for you. What are you? Moroccan? We got it for you. Tunisian? We got it for you. Southern Sudan? We got it for you. What are you, Syrian? We got it for you. 11 different Bibles for the Arabs alone. In Arabic, different dialects. So the Arabic translation, the book begins, it says, ‘’ Injeela Mathew. Injeela Markas. Injeela Lucas. Injeela Yuhenna.’’ I said,’’ where is Injeela ‘Eesa’’? We believe that revelation was given to Eesa. If given to Mathew, Mark and John, who are they? Who is Paul, Peter and James? Who are they? We are made to except that there is a Wahhi Allah gave to Hazrat Eesa a.s. Bibles don’t have any book named ‘ Gospel of Jesus ‘ in it. Bring Injeela Eesa and we will give it a sympathetic consideration if it was from Hazrat Eesa a.s. But these are not the books of Eesa A.S. can you see? Look, they are telling you. Why must you go out of your way and say, ‘’ this is the Torah, this is the Injeel and this is the Zabur.’’ And you get caught up with it? No. its lack of knowledge. Now all this information is available very free, in a book called,’’ Is the Bible God’s word?’’ published by me, we give it out free….’’
PROOFS FR0M THE QURA’N:
The Qur’an clearly says that the current Torah, Psalms and Gospel (the New Testament) have been viciously tempered. Numerous passages of the Qur’an refer to man’s distortion and alterations of the previous books of revelations from Allah. These passages in the Qur’an note that the received books by the People of the Book, The Jews and the Christians, do not conform the original revelations that were given to Moses, David and Jesus. Qur’an says:
PROOFS FROM THE HADITH:
The people of the Scripture (Jews) used to recite the Torah in Hebrew and they used to explain it in Arabic to the Muslims. On that Allah’s Apostle said,’’ Do not believe the people of the Scripture or disbelieve them, but say: ‘’ We believe in Allah and what is revealed to us. (2; 136, Bukhari, vol: 6, book: 60, number 12)
Narrated Ubaidullah: ibn Abbas said:
‘’ Why do you ask the people of the Scripture about anything while your Book( Quran) which has been revealed to Allah’s Apostle is newer and the latest? You read it pure, understand and unchanged, and Allah has told you that the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) changed their Scripture and distorted it, and wrote the scripture with their own hands and said: ‘it is from Allah’, to sell it for a little gain. Does not the knowledge which has come to you prevent you from asking them about anything? No, by Allah, we have seen any man from them asking you regarding what has been revealed to you.’’! (Bukhari, vol: 9, Book 92, number: 461)
Narrated ‘Ubaidullah bin ‘Abdullah:
‘Abdullah bin Abbas said,’’ O the group of Muslims! How can you ask the people of the Scriptures about anything while your Book which Allah has revealed to your Prophet contains the most recent news from Allah and is pure and not distorted? Allah has told you that the people of the Scriptures have been changed some of Allah’s Books and distorted it and wrote something with their own hands and said, this is from Allah, so as to have a minor gain for it. Won’t the knowledge that has come to you stop you from asking them? No, by Allah, we have never seen a man from them asking you about that (the Book Al-Qur’an) which has been revealed to you.
Bukhari, vol: 9, book”93, number: 614
WHAT BIBLE ITSELFF SAYS ABOUT THE CORRUPTION?
‘’ How can you say, ‘’ We are wise, for we have the law of the Lord,’’ when actually the lying pen of the scribes has handled it falsely? (Jeremiah 8:8 new international version)
A Christian author says:
‘’ Careful comparison of the Bibles published recently with the first and other early versions will show great differences; but by whose authority these changes have been made, no one seems to know’’.
Bernard M.Allen says:
‘’ We have, therefore, no security that the narratives and sayings as given in the Gospels necessarily represent what actually happened or what was actually said.’’
The Quran rescues the dignity and honor of the noble Prophets of God but if bible is the true word of God then why it is filled with humiliation and character assassination of Prophets?.. Consider these images:
Even Jesus was not spared and was aledgedly accursed for peoples sins WHICH HE DINT COMMIT and some even state HE WENT TO HELL FOR 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS!!??…. He was a Liar by saying those who were alive with him will not die until he returned in his second coming and a Blasphemer saying;
‘’ My God My God why have you forsaken me??’’. QURAN says Jesus was a Mercy and an HONOURED servant of God in this life and the next.
Mark Twain states:
‘’ It is full of interest, it has noble poetry in it, and some clever fables, and some blood-drenched history, and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.’’
George Bernard Shaw:
‘’ Bible is the most dangerous book on earth, keep it under lock and keys and do not allow your children to have access to it ’’.
Actually there is a lot of misconceptions even in the Muslim world that the Bible should be translated as Torah and Injeel. But the reality is when we set aside names and look at definitions, we realize that neither the Old Testament nor New Testament fulfills the conditions of what is described in the Quran as Revelation. ‘’
Consider these proofs from other Authentic official sources:
Encyclopedia of Britannica says:
‘A study of the Septuagint also reveals many passages in which the translators purposely paraphrased the text or changed its meaning when the original was either embarrassing to them or unclear’’
A Christian intellectual says:
‘’ Copying in the first days was not accurate. We know that marginal notes and words between the lines were incorporated in the text,’’
Encyclopedia of America says:
‘’ More serious are the intentional changes introduced by scribes, and before them owners of manuscripts’’
WHICH PART OF BIBLE IS CORRUPTED?
Any part which says:
‘’ O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.’’
So it’s proved that Torah, Injeel and Zabour are no more in their original manuscript and have been badly corrupted, this manipulated version is called BIBLE.
WHO DESTROYED THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS? :
Jesus never in his life time mentioned the concepts of ORIGINAL SIN or ATONEMENT or TRINITY or CLAIMED DIVINITY…. it was ST.PAUL who claimed that Law of God is Worthless and Faith in the Crucifixion is the only requirement for a Christian to enter Heaven. Romans 3:28, Herb 8: 13.
Did Jesus actually confirms these Teachings from Paul?
Renowned historians of Religions of the World, Floyd Ross and Mrs.Tynette states:
‘’of all the people associated with the beginnings of Christianity, Paul was the most responsible for the turn its beliefs took. He added a new note that determined its future course.’’
Renowned Researcher Prof. Arnold Meyer states:
‘As one asks: where did S.t Paul derive his teachings?.. The simplest answer would seem to be: By tradition from Jesus through the instrumentality of the original apostles. But the answer given by the St.Paul himself is quite different. I received my Gospel not from men, but by a revelation of Jesus Christ. This means that all dependence upon any human tradition, even that of the primitive apostles, is denied.
On page 98 he says:
‘ The first Christians, Indeed, regarded St. Paul’s mission to the gentiles , together his liberal attitude towards the law, as an innovation; as such they either tolerated or attacked it; and St.Paul himself does not judge of it otherwise; he is , indeed, proud of the fact that here he goes his own way in the power of divine revelation. In Antioch he demonstrates even to St. Peter that he, the ‘pillar-apostle’ did not yet comprehend the liberty of the Gospel and the significance of Christ.’
On page 122-123 he says:
‘ If by Christianity we understand faith in Christ as the heavenly son of God who did not belong to earthly humanity but who lived in the divine likeness and glory, who came down from heaven to earth , who entered into humanity and took upon Himself a human from that He might make propitiation for men’s sins by His own blood upon the Cross, who was then awakened from death and raised to the right hand of God as the lord of His own people, who now intercedes for those who believe in Him , hears their prayers, guards and leads them, who, moreover dwells and works personally in each of those who believe in Him, who will come again with the clouds of Heaven to judge the world, who will cast down all the foes of God, but will bring His own people with Him into the home of heavenly light so that they may become light unto His glorified body- if this is Christianity , then such Christianity was founded principally by St.Paul and not by our Lord’.
Researcher Albert Schweitzer states:
‘Paul never appealed to the sayings and commands of the Master’
The new idea of Paul came from the popular ‘mystery cult’ religions that abounded in the Mediterranean lands. The ‘mystery’ applied to the mystical, symbolic union with a god who lived in human form, died, but came to life came… There were a number of mystery cults, with different gods, but all of them emphasized the salvation resulting from dedication to a dying- rising Lord. It is interesting that the word ‘Kyrios’ (Lord), which the Greeks applied to the dying-rising God, was used by Paul to apply to Jesus.
So, it’s proved that the teachings of founder of Christianity ‘ St. Paul’ is a cocktail of pagan ideologies—some from Romans and some from Greeks and got contaminated by Roman domination. As a result of this, a new religion hatched from Roman Egg called ‘’ Christianity’ and has nothing to do with the Divine Message of God and teachings of His honored Messenger Jesus peace be upon him.
HOW DID CHRISTMAS ORIGINATE? :
Christmas was not celebrated in the Christian world until more than 300 years after the time of Christ. Why? Why dint they celebrate? Because fundamentally, it was known that the celebration of birthdays was a pagan custom. If you look at the Old Testament and the New Testament, the only place that you find the celebration of birthdays was in regards to the celebration of the birthdays of Pharaohs. It was based on the mistaken belief that the day on which one is born the person is in the weakest state, this is the day when one is weakest and most easily affected by evil spirits. So they used to burn candles to drive away the evil spirits with the belief that the evil coming in the darkness could be driven away with the candle light. Originally Christmas tree ‘lights’ were candles that were placed on the Christmas tree. They later became electrical light because of modern Technology. So early Christians never celebrated Christmas, 300 years later a monk suggested that the date of his birth was the 25th December. How did he come to this date? There is no evidence. Infact, historians looking at the historical records according to the Gospel concluded that his birth could not have occurred in a winter month. At any rate the, the 25th of December was chosen when Christianity had become strongest in Rome. It had left Middle East, it had left Jerusalem. The teachings of Jesus were overwhelmed in Jerusalem and Saint Paul in Southern Turkey had become the leader of Christianity. From there it was taken to Rome, through Greece and into Rome. As it travelled through Greece into Rome, it absorbed a variety of practices which were Pagan in order to win over the hearts of Pagan Greeks and Romans.
The actual birthday of the Jesus is not known, and the dispute regarding it is known between the Orthodox and Catholic Christians till today. They were not able to preserve their book from alteration, so how could they preserve the birth date of the one who brought their book (Jesus)? Almost all of the earlier and later Christian priests and historians agree that the birth date of the Jesus was officially chosen after the third century and that this selection was meant to be symbolic and not the precise date of birth. On the day of Christmas, Christians remind each other about God having a son.
Consider these historical recordings stating that Christmas has never been a part of early Christianity.
Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911 Edition, published by the Roman Catholic Church states:
‘’ Christmas was not among the earliest festivals of the Church. The first evidence of the feast is from Egypt. Pagan customs around the January calends (the first day of the ancient Roman month) gravitated to Christmas.’’
Encyclopedia of Britannica 1946 edition states:
‘’ Christmas (the mass of Christ) was not among the earliest festivals of the Church. ‘’
Encyclopedia Americana 1944 states:
‘’ Christmas according to many authorities was not celebrated in the first centuries of the Christian Church as the Christian usage in general was to celebrate the death of remarkable persons than their birth.’’
It further says:
‘’ A feast was established in memory of this event (Christ’s birth) in the fourth century. In the fifth century the Western Church ordered it to be celebrated forever, on the day of the old Roman Feast of the birth of Sol, as no certain knowledge of the day of Christ’s birth existed.’’ Sol means Sun not Son.
The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge states:
‘’ How much the date of the festival depending upon the Pagan Brumalia (December 25), following the Saturnalia (December 17 to 24), and celebrating the shortest day of the year and the ‘New Sun’… cannot be accurately determined. The Pagan Saturnalia and Brumalia were too deeply entrenched n popular custom to be set aside by Christian Influences…. The Pagan festivals with its riot and merrymaking was so popular that Christians were glad of an excuse to continue its celebration with little change in spirit and manner.’’
These recognized authorities clearly shows that Christmas was not observed by the Original Christmas for the first 100 years.
WAS JESUS REALLY BORN ON DECEMBER 25? :
The Dictionary of Living Religions reports:
‘Speculation on the birth date of Jesus is as old as Clement of Alexandria …… he suggested May 20. But the actual date remains unknown.’
The Glorious Qur’an clearly unfolds this reality in these words:
‘And shake towards you the trunk of the palm tree, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates.’
In this verse Allah s.w.t tells Maryam (Marry) peace be upon him, close to the time of her delivering Jesus peace be upon him, to have the ripe dates as food and we know well that the ripe dates would be available on palm trees in summer and not in winter.
Similarly in the ‘New Testament’ in the Bok of Luke (2: 8-11) it says:
‘And there were in some country Shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night’.
It’s a matter of common sense that Shepherds would not spend the nights in the open watching their sheep in the winter in an area like Palestine where winter is too cold, so it has to be in summer.
DOES CHRISTMAS HAVE BIBLE EVIDENCE?
The word Christmas does not exist in Bible and there is nothing mentioned about birth date of Jesus in Bible.
Long before December 25th was associated with the birth of Jesus Christ, winters celebrations have been observed in various ways around the world, from the Norse celebrating Yule to the ancient Romans celebrating Saturnalia in honor of their Pagan God Saturn. So, historically many ancient practices have been added in this self-created festival. The Norse were a Pagan civilization that worshipped gods, ‘Thor’ and ‘ Odin’ and were known to have had human sacrifices. The Norse celebrated the holiday called ‘ Yule’ from December 21 through January. In recognition of the return of the sun they would bring home large logs, which they would set on fire. This custom is still practiced during Christmas. Now, the question arises that what has this satanic tradition of burning yule log have anything to do with celebrating the birth of Jesus?
The celebration during the winter solstice for the ancient Romans was ‘Saturnalia’ – a holiday celebrated for the god of agriculture, ‘ Saturn’. Some also celebrated the birth of ‘Mithra’- the pagan God of Sun in December 25th. In the early 4th century, Catholic leaders decided to institute the celebration of Jesus birth. They had a problem though, nowhere in the Bible does it say the actual date of Jesus birth but Pope Julius chose December 25th, the same day of Mithra birth thus keeping all the satanic customs alive at the name of Christmas.
PAGANISM IN CHRISTIANITY:
Edward Gibon in ‘History of Christianity’ states:
‘It’s a reality that Christianity was conquered by Paganism. The purity of the Christianity was changed by the Church of Rome into the incomprehensible Dogma of the Trinity. Many of the Pagan tenets, invented by the Egyptians and idealized by Plato, were retained as being worthy of belief. The doctrine of Incarnation and the mystery of transubstantiation, were both adaptable and are both as repugnant to reason as was the ancient Pagan rite of viewing the sacrifice of animals to forecast the fate of empires.’
Renowned Historian Nicole Canfield in her article ‘Christianity’s Pagan Roots’ says:
‘Christmas Celebration December 25th, has its roots in ancient Pagan holy-days such as Yule (Germanic), the Winter Solstice, Yalda and more. To make a clear connection between festivals and Christmas, we once again visit the ancient cult of Mithraism where the Sun-God Mithra was born on December25th. There is no historical evidence to confirm Jesus actual birth in the month of December, and scholars believe it was most likely sometime in the Summer months rather than the Winter. In addition to the date-match between Mithraism and Christianity for the birth of Christ, we also see numerous Pagan traditions being carried over into the Christmas holiday/ season. This includes the use of evergreen greenery in décor, holy, mistletoe, spruce, fir trees, ivy, yew and Poinsettias. Evergreens were used by ancient Celts and Greeks to remind them spring was around the corner and of the cycle of life. The tradition of gift- giving, decorating the tree, feasting, caroling, putting on plays, even Christmas lights are all rooted in Pagan traditions from ancient European people and beyond.’’
Larry Slawson in his article ‘is the celebration of Christmas Biblical’? Says:
‘’ Christmas is not supported by the Scripture. One of the first thing you will notice when studying scripture is that the word ‘ Christmas ‘ is not mentioned in any verse, chapter or book of the Bible. None of Jesus disciples, nor any of his apostles attempted to celebrate the miraculous birth. The celebration of Christmas was not celebrated by th early Church either. In fact the practice of Christmas did not begin to take hold until the 4th century, under the Roman Catholic Church. The absence of Christmas in the Bible, therefore is reason enough to doubt its legitimacy. As Timothy 3:16 (KJV) states:
‘’ All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and in profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness’’. In response to this verse Dr.Charles states:
‘’ God’s word tells us how we are supposed to worship , how we are supposed to give money for Lord’s work , how to evangelize the lost and everything else pertaining to the Christian life. But not once in the Bible does God tells us to celebrate Christmas.’’
In addition to Christmas having no Scriptural basis, it’s important to note that the celebration of this holiday did not stem from Christianity or Church based doctrines. Infact modern Christian practices evolved directly from Pagan traditions that predated the birth of Christ. According to history.com these traditions were taking place across Europe several centuries before the arrival of Christ. In Germany for instance, Christmas-like practices were observed by followers of Oden (the God of War and death). Likewise in Scandinavia, Christmas-like traditions were practiced during the celebration of Yule. Even in Rome, festivities surrounding the birthday of the Sun-God,’ Mithra’, were all too common during the days surrounding the winter Solstice and mimicked modern day Christmas customs. To accommodate the desires and needs of the people under Roman rule, therefore, Christian leaders in the Catholic Church attempted to embrace aspects from each of these traditions through their creation of a Christmas celebration. The end result of these efforts was a celebration that served to celebrate the birth of Christ while preserving Pagan rituals for the purpose of appeasing a pacifying resistance to Rome. Did you know that the word Christmas is actually derived from the words ‘Christ’ and ‘Mass’ due to its Catholic origins.
The Christmas tree and Santa clause perhaps the two most symbolic and central theme of modern Christmas celebrations. Yet, these two symbols follow unbiblical paths as well and Bible explicitly condemns the practice of both. Like most Christmas traditions, the chopping down and decoration of a Christmas tree stemmed from Pagan practices prior to the birth of Christ. Tribes and civilizations all over the globe used evergreen trees to ‘keep away ‘ghosts, evil spirits and illness. It was not until the 16th century that trees became a major part of Christmas celebrations. Bible clearly condemns such practice. Santa Claus follows a similar pattern in idol Worship, yet the problem with him lies far deeper than simple idolatry. While adults are able to distinguish between truth and fiction but children are often times incapable of making such distinctions and are heavily dependent upon their parents, family and society to alert them to deception. Yet, the society has adapted the practice of lying to our children and propagating the concept of a mythical figure that rides around once a year, delivering gifts to all the good boys and girls of the world. We scold our children when lie to us; yet we all are guilty of the same sin when it comes to Christmas. We tell children of the miraculous nature of the Santa Claus year after year only to watch them heart broken when they finally learn the truth later on I life. Once your children learn the truth about Santa Claus, however, you have also allowed for the temptation to enter their minds that Christ does not exist either. If mom and dad lied to me once, then perhaps they are lying to me again. have you ever noticed that the letters in the word ‘Santa’ can be rearranged to spell the word,’ Satan’? Coincidence or something else?’’.
Chief Editor of a renowned Christian magazine ‘’ The Plain Truth’’ (in the November/December 1991 issue) writes:
‘’ A Pagan festival and the worship of true God do not mix. The Prophets constantly warned ancient Israel against polytheistic practices and for good reason. God is the sovereign and Supreme Lord of all creation. The gods of the nations were not. To mix polytheistic practices with the worship of God is the highest disrespect and dishonor to Him. Because it lowers God to the level of the weak, worthless and false.’’
Some says,’ Let’s get Christ back into Christmas.’ I understand their point and respect their motives, yet shouldn’t we rather be saying: ‘let’s get Christ out of Christmas?’’.
The central symbol of Christmas is the glittering Christmas tree.
In ancient cultures the evergreen tree itself was believed to keep away witches, ghosts and evil spirits. The early Romans during Saturnalia decorated their homes with boughs of evergreen trees as did the druids. During the 16th century Germans started the tradition of cutting down the evergreen trees and decorated them with apples, sweets, candles, gifts and many other fancy things and placed them in homes. So the origin of this practice of decorating evergreen trees comes straight from the Heathen religion. Bible clearly shows the falsie in such practices. In Jeremiah 10: 2-4, 8 it says:
‘’ Do not learn the ways of the Nations or be terrified by signs in the Heavens, though the nations are terrified by them. For the practices of the people are worthless; they cut a tree out of forest, and a craftsman shapes it with chisel. They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter.’’
Leviticus 19: 4 states:
‘’ Turn you not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods.’’ So, the decoration of a Christmas tree is no different than idol worship.
WHO IS SANTA CLAUSE?
History states that he was actually a 4th century Catholic Bishop that was admired because of his charity. He gave away all his inherited wealth to the poor and sick. He has many names around the world; ‘Santa ‘, ‘ Father Christmas’, ‘ St. Nick’ and ‘ Kris kringle’. Kris kringle actually means Christ- kind and that is exactly what this evil character trying to replace, Jesus Christ. But today he has become totally secular. He is Woden War God of the Celtic Druid Pagan religion. Their believe in an elderly magical and forest dwellers with special powers over animals and ability to have knowledge of the unseen and even fly through supernatural powers made him a fancy character for myths, tales and bed time stories. Today Santa is still a Yuletide image with only minor changes from where he was Woden the war god in his blood red outfit, still wears his long beard and promotes worship. Substitute with the flying horse with 8 legs, he has now 8 flying reindeers puling his magic sled above houses, distributing gifts and good lucks.
Did Christians went astray after Jesus?
Yes, Christians not only distorted teachings of Jesus but their believes also contradict Biblical laws as well. For e.g, in Christianity priests are not allowed to marry to protect their attention and they call it Blasphemy. But when they allege God having son, isn’t that blasphemy?
Jesus statement denies false accusations of Christians calling him God or son of God, it’s recorded in the Quran;
“And when Allah will say,” O Isa, son of Maryam! Did you say to men: ‘ Worship me and my mother as two gods besides Allah?”. He will say: “Glorious are you! It was not for me to say what I had no right. Had i said such a thing, You would surely have known it. You know what is in my inner self though I do not know what is in yours; You, only You, are the All knower of all that is hidden. Never did I say to them aught except You did command me to say: ‘ Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.’ And I was a witness over them while I dwelt amongst them, but when You took me up, You were the watcher over them, and You are a witness to all over them.
Christians should explore the truth through fascinating journey of Quran to resolve this puzzle, otherwise Santa Mafia would keep on expanding their commercial industry of Trillion Dollars and would keep on infecting tender minds at the name of glamorously scripted Fairy Tale, CHRISTMAS!.
Would you still trust your scripted beliefs?… can you still say that facts were hidden ?… don’t you think it’s the time to get rid of the lies being taught from generations by church and pastor?….
May Allah (s.w.t) guide us all on the straight path…. Aameen Ya Rub ul Alameen
