As a Muslim it is my duty to tell the people about Islam, but I don?t want to forget about my brothers and sisters of the book (i.e. Christians). Since there are quite a few Christians that come to this site to learn about Islam I wish to open your eyes to your religion. This is not to speak ill of any religion this is just to enlighten you because I too read the bible and consisder myself to be a true bleiver in all of the Prophets who Allah ta?ala sent to us in this world. Celebrating Christmas It is well-known among Biblical scholars that Jesus (PBUH) was not born in December, because the shepherds were never out in the fields with their sheep at that time. "There were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night."--Luke 2:8. Shepherds always brought their sheep in from the mountainsides and fields and corralled them not later than October 15, to protect them from the cold, rainy season that followed. (Also read Songs 2:11 and Ezra 10:9, 13.) "It was an ancient custom among Jews of those days to send out their sheep to the fields and deserts about the Passover [early spring], and bring them home at commencement of the first rain. During the time they were out, the shepherds watched them night and day. As . . . the first rain began early in the month of marchesvan, which answers to part of our October, we find that the sheep were kept out in the open country during the whole summer. "And, as these shepherds had not yet brought home their flocks [when Christ was born in Bethlehem], it is a presumptive argument that October had not yet commenced, and that, consequently, our JESUS (PBUH) was not born on the 25th of December, when no flocks were out in the fields; nor could He have been born later than September, as the flocks were still in the fields by night. On this very ground the nativity in December should be given up. The feeding of the flocks by night in the fields is a chronological fact . . . See the quotations from the Talmudists in Lightfoot."--Adam Clarke, Commentary, Vol. 5, p. 370. The census of Caesar Augustus is mentioned in Luke 2:1-2, but historians are not certain when it was issued. But it is improbable that he would call for the citizens of the Roman Empire to return to their native homes to be enrolled in the census in the middle of winter. Even his armies avoided marching during the hazards of winter weather. Many authorities believe that Jesus (PBUH) was born in the spring of the year, but, in the wisdom of God, the date of Jesus (PBUH) birth has been hidden from us. Why then does all the world celebrate the birth of Jesus (PBUH)--not merely in December--but on a certain day in December? The word "Christmas" means "Mass of Christ," or, as it came to be shortened, "Christ-Mass." It came to the modern world from the Roman Catholic Church. They, in turn, got it not from the Bible, but from paganism. Origen, an early Catholic writer, said this about celebrating birthdays in the Bible: "In the Scriptures, no one is recorded to have kept a feast or held a great banquet on his [Christ's] birthday. It is only sinners [like Pharaoh or Herod] who make great rejoicings over the day in which they were born into this world."--Catholic Encyclopedia, 11th ed., art: "Natal Day." In one brief paragraph, the New Schaff Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge tells us how the December 25 holiday entered the Christian Church: "How much the date of the festival depended upon the pagan Brumalia [The December 25 celebration], following the Saturnalia [an eight-day December 17-24 festival preceding it], 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 in popular custom to be set aside by Christian influence . . . The pagan festival 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 in manner. Christian preachers of the West and the Near East protested against the unseemly frivolity with which Jesus (PBUH) birthday was celebrated, while Christians of Mesopotamia accused their Western brethren of idolatry and sun worship for adopting as Christian this pagan festival."-- New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, art: "Christmas." Church leaders adopted a pagan holiday, in spite of the protests of some godly local pastors. It was considered idolatry to do this, since it was nothing more than a heathen day of worship. In addition, the day for this worship had been selected in honor of Mithra, the sun god. December 25 was dedicated to the keeping of his birthday. Therefore, sincere Christians considered it to be a form of sun worship. The sun had reached its lowest angle in the sky on December 21 (the winter solstice), and the 25th was the first observable day in which it began rising in the noon sky. So December 25 had, for centuries, been celebrated as the "birth of the sun god." But earnest believers recognized that Christians dare not accept pagan practices or pagan holidays. Those heathen customs could not be found in the Bible, so they ought to be shunned by conscientious Christians. The Roman world was essentially pagan and many converts to Christianity had come to enjoy those festivities, and did not want to forsake them after baptism into the Christian church. When these half-converted church members rose to leadership positions, they made policy changes in agreement with contemporary heathen customs. And that is how we got Christmas. Hear ye the the Lord speaketh unto you, O house of Isreal: The sayith the Lord, learn not he ways of the Heathans, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathan are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of a workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers so that it moves not. (Jerimiah 10; 1-4) The Eating of Swine Islam has prohibited blood of any type. You will agree that a chemical analysis of blood shows that it contains an abundance of uric acid, a chemical substance which can be injurious to human health. The toxic nature of uric acid, in the human being it is excreted as a waste product....... in fact we are told that 98% of the bodies uric acid is extracted from the blood by the kidneys and removed through urination. This is why there is a special prescribed method of animal slaughter in Islam. The wielder of the knife, whilst taking the name of the Almighty, makes an incision through the jugular veins, leaving all other veins of the neck intact. This causes the death of the animal by a total loss of blood from the body, rather than an injury to any vital organ were the organs; example the heart, the liver, or the brain crippled or damaged, the animal could die immediately and its blood would congeal in its veins and would eventually permeate (spread throughout) the flesh. This implies that the animal flesh would be permeated and contaminated with uric acid and therefore very poisonous ...... only today did our dietitians realise such a thing. Further, did you know that a pig cannot be slaughtered at the neck for it does not have a neck ..........that is according to its natural anatomy. A Muslim reasons that if the pig was to be slaughtered and fit for human consumption the creator would have provided it with a neck. Also it is important to note that the pig's biochemistry excretes only 2% of its total uric acid content...... the remaining 98% remains as an integral part of the body. This explains the high rate of Rheumatism found in those who consume pork. And the swine, though he divided the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud: he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat and their carcass ye shall not touch; they are unclean to you. (Leviticus 11: 7-8)

The more I read the bible, the more I become Muslim. It has had a strange effect on me. It all started with fear, everything I read is like a story about me. That scared me, like God knew all about me. Pslams 149 mentions saints. Jews don't have saints and I don't know about Muslim. But Christian have saints and they are the judges because they rule with God. Since they are in a central position, all saints must be unbias judge between the 2. If I were a saint, all Muslims pass go in my book and lead to the next. Even St. Mary is always pictured as a Muslim, covered. The Christian name Mary actually came from Muslim, not Jewish Marium. It was originally Marjona and Turkish, so she was Muslim before Muslim was religion. I agree a lot of Christians (especially in the west) have Christ wrong, he died so people would not suffer but they still do. Because no Christian man wants to be free of sin, so they think Jesus save them when they are responsible for being like Christ. They cannot do that unless they are led to being Muslim and put an end to sin. Christians do not respect women by letting them be exposed, they think Muslim take away their rights but Christian men do not want to give up the lust in their eyes and hearts. Being Muslim is the only way a Christian can be really a true believer. I know, it is a strange concept but all I know is that the closer you are to God, the tighter the restraints get.

Salamu Alaikum sister Nufitrah. Tha Zalimun is always causing confusion. Never loose your sense of humor though my sister. On the day when his limbs will be a witness against him he cannot say that he wasn't told. Salaam.

Assalamualaikum, Brother ahjii, Why we think rwbisbak came here? To become virus and unwanted guest......but True muslims will not easily influence by him and any of his viral infections...... His tradition is more important than the religion, the true teachings of Jesus which the Christians and Jews do not follow, they make and create their own laws, rules and beliefs.......CONFUSED........

Obviousely you would not understand even if I spoke to you like you were my child...But let me try. See spot run. See spot jump. Anyway, you asked what was my point mr. rwb. You say that you have your traditions right? If you learned reading & comprehension while you where in pre-school you would easily see my point. But, I see some of us slept through that part. The point is that some of your traditions are not any of customs of prophet isa (pbuh) nor his true apostles, nor of the prophets who came before him. Do you read your bible little brother or do you let someone else interpret it for you son. Oh by the way how is it that I am able to know your book but you know nothing of mine..Let me take that back, because your book is my book. Maybe, you don't have a book. Better yet can you read? In a strict sense I am the christian you wish to be. To learn the true teachings of prophet Isa (pbuh) Musa (pbuh), Abrahim (pbuh) is part of learning Islam. And you see I didnt erase you either. You are allright with me rwb, lol.

Assalamualaikum, Ibrahim Ma Tien Ying, a Chinese Muslim scholar, diplomat and educationalist, in his booklet "Islam and pork", says: "The pig is naturally lazy and indulgent in sex; it dislikes sunlight and lacks the spirit and will to 'fight'. It eats almost anything, be it faeces or anything dirty. Amongst all animal flesh, pork is the greatest cradle of harmful germs. Pork also serves as a carrier of diseases to mankind." Allah knows the best why He forbidden humans to eat pork......
