Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,
I find myself writing from the corner of a cosy room, plumped down on a beanie. Today as you may all know is Christmas, we as muslims do not celebrate Christmas however it does not stop others from wishing us a 'Merry Christmas'.
Christmas has become a universal holiday, originally it is the celebration of Jesus's Birthday however many do not even classify themselves as Christians yet still celebrate it for the sake of it.
Christianity, to me, just does not make sense. Why would Jesus sacrifice himself for the absolution of other's sins? Astaghfirullah. Thats accountablility right out the window. That's like me saying if a girl kills someone I should get punished yet she attains Heaven. Nauzbillah.
Today in the Hospital Ward there were very few visitors throughout the day, despite it being a 'holy' occasion there were very few people visiting their relatives. The majority of the Hospital Ward consisted of Christians, or said Christians.
It made me feel happy I am a muslim you know why? As a muslim we get reward for visiting the sick it's an obligation infact. We are responsible for our sick parents, or sisters, and on Eid it is not an exception. We as muslims are encouraged to take responsibility and accountability for our actions and it is not excused for any petty reason.
Alhamdulilah I am a muslim because without that AllahuAlam. Where would I be?
This was not meant to be offensive so forgive me if I have offended anyone.
