Jesus came into our world

Monday, December 19th, 2011

This is what I think about Christmas. On this day Jesus came into our world, to change the world and make it better. When you think about it, Jesus’s life was very hard. In Islam we believe that people insulted his mother and we do not have stories about Joseph, so we believe he had no father.

In Islam Jesus is a holy person. There is a big chapter about him and his mother Mary in the Qur’an, the Muslim holy book. Muslims believe that at the end of the world it will be Jesus who comes back, and not the prophet Mohammed (pbuh).
On Christmas day we will be happy for every Christian person, and we can not forget when Christians are happy for us on Eid.

Learning about Jesus

Monday, December 19th, 2011

In my community we mark Christmas by learning about Jesus from the Islamic perspective. I want to educate young Muslims about Jesus and the second coming.  Jesus is very important in Islam, and he heralded the arrival of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Learning about Jesus also matters because we live among Christians.

At this time of year in my Qur’an school the children learn about Jesus in the Qur’an. The school is attended by 400 pupils and meets every evening. Children also have the opportunity to learn about Jesus at the Fig tree primary school (a Muslim faith school in Nottingham). Usually at this time of year we watch a film called St Mary, which brings out the Islamic perspective on the birth of Christ.

We invite our local vicar to talk about Christmas on our local community radio station, Dawn 107.6 FM. And I do a yearly Christmas lecture about Jesus for Muslim teens and young people.
