KUFFAAR CELEBRATIONS – THE NEGATION OF IMAAN
A Brother from the U.S. laments:
“Muslims” Participating in Christmas Activities
I’m not sure if you’re aware, but a significant majority of “Muslims” in England & America have engaged in one form or another in the kuffar Christmas celebrations.
They either attended a work Christmas party, wished someone a “Merry Christmas”, or under their fallacious understanding of good character they wished someone “season’s greetings” thinking they were deceiving Allah Ta’ala with a play on words. Some posed in front of a Christmas Tree & others wore a Santa hat, looking like circus clowns in the process.
Hereunder are the numerous excuses that I have heard they hope to present in the Court of Allah Ta’ala for participating in a celebration which, despite it’s commercial flavour, in essence, is one in which the ascription of a partner to Allah is celebrated.
(A) Some argue that under the auspices of good Islamic character, there is no harm in participating in the peripheral activities of Christmas as at heart we don’t believe in it.
They forget that intentionally participating in an action is sufficient for apostasy, regardless of what is in the heart. In Qur’an, I vaguely recall the group of people who said they were only joking, i.e. in their heart they didn’t mean it, yet Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam still referred to their joking on a sensitive issue as kufr.
It’s as if, na’oodhoobillah, these so-called Muslims envisage that if Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam & his beloved companions were alive today they would be as desensitised to Imaan as these morons who today proclaim to be Muslims, but unashamedly have zero fear of Allah Ta’ala and are completely oblivious to the fact that the crime of shirk is the gravest of all.
They have a warped secular understanding of good character and adopt their subjective definition as the Islamic one, yet they don’t realise that Akhlaq is a specific branch of Deen covered by numerous Ahadith and Qur’anic verses, none of which advocate the aforementioned behaviour.
In fact such behaviour is condemned in Hadith, wherein states to the nearest effect that whoever imitates them in the salient features of their beliefs/religion he/she is ONE OF THEM. Imagine being raised as ONE OF THEM on the Day of Judgement.
(B) Others trivialise the issue by proclaiming: “It’s only a bit of fun,” as if to say Islam has not defined the boundaries of play/enjoyment.
(C) Others out of fear of the kuffar denigrating or looking down on them participate out of compulsion, because they do not have the Imaani backbone, nor the fear of Allah. They fear a kaafir who is physically and spiritually impure over Allah Ta’ala who is pure and the King of all Kings. Should anybody condemn this behaviour, these satanists will refer to them as killjoys or too strict.
What I would like to know from The Majlis specifically is:
(A) Am I right in thinking that none of the aforementioned excuses for implied endorsement of shirk will be acceptable to Allah Ta’ala on the Day of Judgement?
(B) What is the state of Imaan of a person who did any of the above?
(C) If this amounts to kufr, presumably these people all have to re-enter the fold of Islam, make tauba, renew their nikah & re-perform their fardh Hajj. Is this correct?
Would you please publish the answer to this on the website as this issue is one that many Muslims are falling foul of.

THE COMMENT OF THE SHARIAH
Brother, we are living in the era termed Aakhiruz Zamaan (The End of Earthly Time). It is in this age that the Signs of Qiyaamah predicted by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) are incrementally and swiftly materializing. The adoption of kuffaar customs and participating in their functions are the effects of the desensitization and even of the elimination of Imaan from the hearts of professed Muslims. The curse of kuffaar emulation has reached the degree termed by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) as “the lizard’s hole”. That is, Muslims will insanely emulate and follow the Yahood and Nasaara in every aspect of filth, fisq, fujoor and kufr to the extent of worshipping the cross inside the Musjid.
The vilest villains promoting this lizard-hole culture of emulation are the moron molvis and sheikhs of this age. These agents of Iblees have opened wide avenues of fisq and fujoor with their haraam distorted and utterly baseless interpretations on the basis of which they halaalize almost every Prohibition of the Shariah. With untenable nonsensical arguments they issue zigzag fatwas of corruption to corrupt the Imaan and ruin the Akhlaaq of the ignorant masses who find it pleasurable to dance to the tune of the haraam zigzag fatwas since the nafs derives considerable pleasure from the fatwas of the agents of shaitaan.
While it is imperative for the Ulama-e-Haqq to uphold the Command of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahyi Anil Munkar, we do understand that the raging tide and flood of fisq and fujoor in the Ummah will not be stemmed. Nevertheless, it is Waajib for those of the Haqq to proclaim loudly and vigorously the Haqq regardless of who accepts or rejects.
The answers to your queries are as follows:
(A) Your thinking is, Alhamdulillah, 100% correct. The plethora of excuses which the followers of the Yahood and Nasaara present to justify their participation in flagrantly haraam functions and practices is nugatory of Imaan. The crashing of Allah’s Athaab on Muslims all over the world should, therefore come as no surprise.
“Muslims” of this age, despite professing to be Muslims, are no longer Muslims in terms of the Shariah. The Ummah at large has reneged from Islam with beliefs and practices of the kuffaar, hence Allah’s Chastisement is hemming them into the cauldron of misery and destruction. The Ummah as a whole has traversed the boundary of no return, hence Allah Ta’ala is severely punishing the professed muslims with the variety of misery, brutality and oppression at the hands of the very kuffaar whom they are madly emulating right into the ‘lizard’s hole’.
(B) The Imaan of people who indulge in these kinds of practices of the kuffaar is negated.
(C) Yes, you are correct in your understanding. They have to rededicate themselves to Islam. If they fail, they will be resurrected on the Day of Qiyaamah with the kuffaar whom they had so lovingly emulated here on earth. May Allah Ta’ala save us from that terrible fate.
A fearful episode
In India, once on the occasion of the Hindu festival of holi when the cow-worshippers and cow-urine-drinkers quirt colourful water and coloured cow urine on all and sundry, a Maulana while chewing paan (beetle leaf) passed by a donkey. Mockingly, he said to the donkey: Today, everyone is in happiness squirting coloured water on all. But no one is bothered about you. Any how I shall do so. So saying, he spat his red-coloured saliva on the donkey in imitation of the Hindu mushrikeen. This was obviously a joke to amuse himself.
After the demise of this Maulana Saheb, a friend saw in a dream the Maulana Sahib burning in Jahannam. In shock and surprise, he enquired of the reason for the punishment. The Maulana Sahib said that since he had emulated the holi custom of the Hindu mushrikeen, Allah’s Wrath overtook him. The abhorrence of emulating the ways and practices of the Hindu kuffaar had secured for himself the fate of Jahannam.
This episode should be a fearful lesson for those who have seceded their brains to the kuffaar. Those who adopt the customs and practices of the kuffaar should ponder and understand the far reaching disastrous consequences which will extend right into Qiyaamah. The stupid arguments and the zigzag fatwas of the moron molvis, sheiks and muftis of this age will not avail on the Day of Qiyaamah. Allah Ta’ala has endowed all Muslims with adequate intelligence for differentiation between Haqq and baatil – truth and falsehood. There will, therefore be no valid argument on the Day of Qiyaamah for justifying the kufr participation in kuffaar customs, practices and festivals.
