QARAY - KARAITES قريظة
WHY MUSLIMS SHOULD CLAIM CHRISTMAS:
At first glance the idea of Muslims claiming Christmas seems quite bizarre and theologically baseless. However when one is willing to delve past the impulsive , emotional and reactionary responses the idea holds much merit.
ASHURA: CLAIMING ASHURA AS A SUPERIOR CLAIM TO MOSES THAN THE CLAIM OF THE JEWS:
When the Prophet Muhammad arrived in Medina he witnessed the Jews observing a Fast called Ashura. In regards to this Holy observance the Prophet Muhammad asked the Jews the meaning or reason that they were fasting. Their response was that the fast was done in honor of Moses delivering the Israelites from Egyptian bondage. In turn the Prophet Muhammad immediately claimed the Fast by stating that he as a Prophet had a greater claim to Moses than they did. In fact the Prophet Muhammad declared Ashura to be a practice incumbent upon all Muslims.
Volume 3, Book 31, Number 222:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
The Prophet came to Medina and saw the Jews fasting on the day of Ashura. He asked them about that. They replied, "This is a good day, the day on which Allah rescued Bani Israel from their enemy. So, Moses fasted this day." The Prophet said, "WE HAVE MORE CLAIM OVER MOSES THAN YOU." So, the Prophet fasted on that day and ordered (the Muslims) to fast (on that day).
In accordance with the above mentioned the Prophet Muhammad did not ask the Jews about where Ashura was found in the Torah,. He did not question whether it was the exact day or How they knew Moses Fasted on that particular day. The Prophet Muhammad just simply claimed it in regards to SUPERIORITY OVER MOSES!
The Prophet Muhammad understood the significance in observing Ashurah as a demonstration of a Superior claim to Moses in relation to those who claimed to be the People of Moses. Therefore he embraced Ashura with intense love and fervor:
Volume 3, Book 31, Number 224:
Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:
I never saw the Prophet seeking to fast on a day more (preferable to him) than this day, the day of 'Ashura', or this month, i.e. the month of Ramadan.
DO MUSLIMS HAVE A SUPERIOR CLAIM TO JESUS THAN MODERN DAY CHRISTIANS?
The Koran presents Jesus as one conceived of an immaculate conception and Virgin Birth in accordance with the announcement from the Angel Gabriel.
The Koran recognizes Jesus as the Messiah.
However the Koran openly denounces the Trinity and Son of God Concepts. The Koran also makes it clear that Jesus did not physically die on the cross.
The Koran prepares us to receive the true Jesus of the Second Coming. Therefore the Koran gives Muslims a superior claim over Jesus in relation to Trinitarian Christians and in that regard Muslims should claim Christmas in the same manner that the Prophet Muhammad claimed Ashura.
THE KORAN IS THE ONLY SCRIPTURE THAT EQUATES THE MIRACULOUS BIRTH OF JESUS WITH A TREE:
THE KORANIC CHRISTMAS TREE:
The Koran is the only scripture that supports the Christmas Tree, If we were to imagine replacing the traditional Christmas conifer with this tree, what would it look like? According to the Quran, the tree is a date palm, which has both Mary and baby Jesus resting beneath it. The tree is bearing fruit at the time of Jesus’ birth. It also features spring water toward its base, which miraculously appears for Mary to drink from:
The Koran states that at the time Jesus was to be born his mother Mary found refuge under a TREE. She was then instructed to shake the TRUNK OF THE TREE and was to eat dates that fell from the TREE. Therefore the Miracle of Jesus birth is undeniably associated with a miraculously decreed TREE of sustenance.
SURAH 19:19 - 26
He said: I am only a messenger of your Lord: That I will give you a pure boy.She said: When shall I have a boy and no mortal has yet touched me, nor have I been unchaste?He said: Even so; your Lord says: It is easy to Me: and that We may make him a sign to men and a mercy from Us, and it is a matter which has been decreed. So she conceived him; then withdrew herself with him to a remote place
And the throes (of childbirth) compelled her to betake herself to the TRUNK OF A PALM TREE. She said: Oh, would that I had died before this, and had been a thing quite forgotten!Then (the child) called out to her from beneath her: Grieve not, surely your Lord has made a stream to flow beneath you; And shake towards you the TRUNK OF THE PALM TREE, it will drop on you fresh ripe dates:So eat and drink and refresh the eye. Then if you see any mortal, say: Surely I have vowed a fast to the Beneficent Allah, so I shall not speak to any man today.
WITH A SUPERIOR CLAIM OVER JESUS IN RELATION TO TRINITARIAN CHRISTIANS AND THE ONLY SCRIPTURE THAT EQUATES THE MIRACULOUS BIRTH OF JESUS WITH A TREE IT IS ONLY LOGICAL THAT MUSLIMS CLAIM CHRISTMAS AS THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD CLAIMED ASHURA.
