Many ‘Christians’ and non religious people at this time of year, all ‘join together’ to pull out all the stops to celebrate ‘Christmas’. One of the oddest customs is to t…o bring a tree in from the cold outside and set it up in the warmth of a living room. The tree is then decorated with gold tinsel and presents. On the top of the tree often a gold shimmering star is placed and under the tree people put presents for all their family.

Is the Christmas Tree Biblical?
It might surprise you to know that the Christmas tree is in the Bible:

“Hear ye the word which the LORD speaketh unto you, O house of Israel: Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen 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 the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not.” Jeremiah 10:1-4


Just this one simple area of the customs of Christmas expose its true origin. It is not really a true ‘Christian’ festival – but rather a compromise with paganism. The ancient pagans believed that there was a strong connection with evergreen trees and fertility. They decorated trees as an act of worship to their gods – they left presents under the trees as sacrifices. When the Roman Empire switched from being Pagan to being ‘Christian’ these customs were simply re-branded as being Christian. There were no such thing!

Allah The Almighty has honored ummah of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) with Islam, and commanded them to implement it. He has sent down Islam as a unique way of life. A pattern that is different in the matter of its concept and rules, as a system that is perfect and comprehensive that manages all affairs of life.

Allah says:
“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah…”
