For first time in 457 years- ‪‎Muslims‬ and Christians‬ will celebrate ‪‎Christmas‬ and Prophet Mohammad(PBUH) birthday at the same time. Regardless of how Christmas may or may not make us truther Christians feel.. i think it is a good sign to bring us closer together in the west Smile & I bet in places like Egypt, Palestine and Lebanon- this will be wonderful as alot of Christians and Muslims already celebrate Christmas together Smile Now it will be a double celebration there Smile

I understand what you mean about Christmas Riddler.. I feel the same but most Christians still do celebrate it, until God makes a change.. most do.
Mohammad's birthday is not on the same date every year. It is figured out astronomically. This is the first time in over 400 years it has landed on Dec 24th.

The Christians in those regions you listed will likely be celebrating the Nativity of our Lord in th flesh on January 7, so not really at the same time.

The Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar. The lunar year is shorter than the typical year (around 354 days) and therefore shifts in respect to the Christian calendar. It just happened that this year it fell on the 24th of December.

A joyful season for allll!

I on the other hand do not take part in our prophet's (may peace and blessings be upon him) birthday. This is a lengthy topic I don't want to get into. I celebrate his life in the way of his teachings throughout his life. Smile each to their own and I'm happy for everybody in whatever way they wish to celebrate their faith.

I am SO glad it's the christmas holidays now. No more freakin' chaotic school runs now lol and yay for family time.

I'm going to be spending the next 2 weeks with my close family and friendssss, happy holidays to all! Xxx

Mmm if you think about it too much it's almost like a sign

We don't celebrate Muhammad's(pbuh) birthday or any other prophets birthday. The only thing Muslims celebrate is knowing their Lord and that He is One.

Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu alaihi wasalam) said:

"My similitude and that of the life of this world is that of a traveler who took a rest at mid-day under a shade of a tree and then left it."       (Ahmad, at-Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah and al-Hakim)

As Muslims, we celebrate only two ‘eid (festivals): ‘eid ul-fitr (after the end of Ramadhan), and ‘eid ul-Udh-ha, the day of the greater hajj (pilgrimage).

During these two festivals, we offer felicitations, spread joy, and entertain children. But more importantly, we offer remembrance of God's blessings, celebrate His name and offer the ‘eid salaat (prayer). Other than these two occasions, we do not recognize or celebrate any other days in the year.

Of course, there are other joyous occasions for which the Islamic shari’ah dictates appropriate celebration, such as gathering for special meals during weddings or on the occasion of the birth of a child (aqeeqah). However, these days are not specified as particular days in the year; rather, they are celebrated as they happen in the course of a Muslim’s life. It is not a Muslim tradition to celebrate birth days, every year - only on the day of the birth as it is a joyous occasion.

Axiom, yes Eastern Orthodox Christians also celebrate Christmas in January.. however.. the Christians of the middle east all celebrate Christmas on Dec 24/25 as well, including the Orthodox.
