Don’t be upset if a Muslim ignores you when you wish him ‘Happy New Year’

burning_churchMuslims much prefer to celebrate non-Muslim holidays by torching cars in Paris and burning down churches in Muslim countries. It is NOT permissible to greet or congratulate the kuffar (filthy infidels) on the occasion of Christmas, New Year or any of their other holidays, and it is not permissible to respond to them when they greet us on those occasions, because they are not festivals that are prescribed in our religion, and returning their greeting is an affirmation and approval of them.

Islam QA (h/t maurice)  The Muslim should be proud of his religion and its rulings, and he should be keen to call others and convey to them the religion of Allaah, may He be glorified and exalted. 


Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) was asked about the ruling on greeting the kuffaar on the occasion of Christmas and how we should respond when they greet us on this occasion. Is it permissible to go to the parties that they hold on this occasion? 

Is a person sinning if he does any of the things mentioned without intending to, and he only does it to be nice, or because of or shyness or embarrassment or other reasons? Is it permissible to imitate them in that? 


He replied:  Greeting the kuffar on the occasion of Christmas or any of their other religious holidays is haraam according to scholarly consensus, as was stated by Ibn al-Qayyim in his book Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah, where he says: 

“Congratulating the kuffaar on the rituals that belong only to them is haraam by consensus, as is congratulating them on their festivals and fasts by saying ‘A happy festival to you’ or ‘May you enjoy your festival,’ and so on. If the one who says this has been saved from kuffar, it is still forbidden. It is like congratulating someone for prostrating to the cross, or even worse than that.


It is as great a sin as congratulating someone for drinking wine, or murdering someone, or having illicit sexual relations, and so on. Many of those who have no respect for their religion fall into this error; they do not realize the offensiveness of their actions. Whoever congratulates a person for his disobedience or bid’ah or kufr exposes himself to the wrath and anger of Allaah.” End quote. 


Congratulating the kuffaar on their religious festivals is haraam to the extent described by Ibn al-Qayyim because it implies that one accepts or approves of their rituals of kufr, even if one would not accept those things for oneself. But the Muslim should not accept the rituals of kufr or congratulate anyone else for them, because Allaah does not accept any of that at all, as He says (interpretation of the meaning):

“If you disbelieve, then verily, Allaah is not in need of you, He likes not disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you.  [al-Zumar 39:7] So congratulating them is forbidden, whether they are one’s colleagues at work or otherwise.


If they greet us on the occasion of their festivals, we should not respond, because these are not our festivals, and because they are not festivals which are acceptable to Allaah. These festivals are innovations in their religions, and even those which may have been prescribed formerly have been abrogated by the religion of Islaam, with which Allaah sent Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) to the whole of mankind. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

Understand how history repeats itself with today’s persecution of Christians in Islamic countries. click here for details. 

“Whoever seeks a religion other than Islaam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:85] It is haraam for a Muslim to accept invitations on such occasions, because this is worse than congratulating them as it implies taking part in their celebrations.


Similarly, Muslims are forbidden to imitate the kuffaar by having parties on such occasions, or exchanging gifts, or giving out sweets or food, or taking time off work, etc., because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever imitates a people is one of them.” Shaykh al-Islaam Ibn Taymiyah said in his book Iqtidaa’ al-Siraat al-Mustaqeem Mukhaalifat Ashaab al-Jaheem: “Imitating them in some of their festivals implies that one is pleased with their false beliefs and practices, and gives them the hope that they may have the opportunity to humiliate and mislead the weak.

And Allah knows best.

  1. Im not a muslim but reading all of this really makes me sick to my stomach. I have never come across some muslim that didnt treat me right. 2 of my friends are and they have showed me how to love myself and not let this world depress me. You really need some actual reading to do about their faith before talking all this crap. And how can their feast be cruel towards animals if we do the same exact thing by shooting them thru the head after electroshocking them. Killing is killing so get your facts straight. You sickos make me want to even dig in deeper inti their religion because from what i have seen they have been brothers and sisters to me and loving. Reading this makes me realize why islam is spreading because if something was indeed so evil, it wouldnt be the fastest growing religion in the world without giving me that crap about muslims reproducing like bunnies. The amount of converts isn’t normal and i might just become a convert in the future! And for the record they are not called mohamedans but muslims because they follow islam and mohammed is their prophet. I dont call myself a jesusian now do i?! Which isnt a religion to begin with come to think of it. For years you christians have taught me crap and led me to believe in the creation instead of the creator. Sod off you monsters

  2. Upset??!!! LMAO!!! No way and on the contrary. In fact, best to simply ignore them and put -shove if need be- back in their place. Don’t talk to them, do business with them, hire them, etc. Way past time to turn the tables on them and if they don’t like it, tough. They’ve only got themselves to blame and telling them so is something they can never contradict as their actions to this day spoke volume as to why they deserve nothing less.

    And they can whine and foam at the mouth all they want, we don’t care!

  3. I would just ignore ALL of them like they didn’t even exist,all year long.They are all pathetic and cowards.I wouldn’t feel insulted if someone said “Happy Hanukkah” to me.Like I said,they have NO business living in a non-Muslim country.They ALL belong back in the Middle East.Let us all make it known to them that as long as they have there cruel and destructive attitude and actions they are NOT welcome here at all.

  4. That means we don’t wish them -happy ramadam or -happy eid -as it means a horrible cruel death to the animals -how come the -minority is telling the majority what they must eat -halal which is taking over without our permission or -knowledge?

  5. A muslim man at work with the beard and all is thought of as a nice fellow. Well, he was wished a Merry Christmas and offered a hand to shake, but he refused with the reply, “I am a muslim.” The man tried once more to shake his hand and wish him a Merry Christmas even if he was a muslim, but the muslim refused to shake his hand. The lesson of the story is a muslim is a muslim, not a nice fellow and don’t forget it.

  6. i would never wish a Muslim a Happy New year i just wish they would go away far away not even this planet would e good. disappointed the annunaki gods didn’t come back cowards.

  7. Guy has a good New Year’s resolution about not supporting muslims in any way by hiring them, using their retail outlets, using their taxis and so on. When meeting them on the street, do not give way and yield. That is a sign of dihimmi hood to a muslim savage. One of their new ways to express their imagined superiority is to break into a line at a cashier or a theater and so on. Let the cowards know that you are not willing to give way or to put up with any of their savage ways. Call them out and get the others in the line to insist and to demand, that the savages go to the back of the line. Let them meet the power of the infidel and the cowards will back off because that is the way bullies have always behaved.

  8. A. I would not wish a muslime any type of Christian Holiday Greeting, other than to piss them off. I am all for saying anything to a muslime to piss them off.
    B. I would greet a female muslime with the question, Have you had your genitials mutilated yet?
    C. I would say to a muslime man, Nice dress you are wearing, next time add some earrings to the ensemble
    Most of the time they are not expecting any type of comment from a kuffaar. Before they have a chance to think (which coming from a mulime is almost impossible), just walk away.
    Happy New Year to all non-muslime readers.
    Go piss in your hat Uncle Doooogie.

  9. My response to muzzies in the Holidays this year was ‘GET OUT OF MY SIGHT’.

    When out, I handed them the same kind of attitude they gave out so freely, and if one glowered at me for wishing a Christian, or anyone else, a Merry Christmas I locked-eyes with the muzzie until it realized that there are some non-muzzies in the world who don’t ‘do-the-dhimmi’ and have NO problems challenging and exposing muzzies as the invertebrate cowards they are.
    muzzies want to be rude and such, that’s fine, then they should expect the same treatment in-kind.

    It got really interesting in Edmonton, where most are kowed by muzzies and the muzzies have such a hard time comprehending one Clean of islam not adopting the ‘dhimmi’ posture of the intimidated–especially a woman!! *gasp!*
    The looks…LOL
    I told one muzzie that if he didn’t stop glaring at myself or Brianna and Lhana I’d snap his spine like a chicken’s neck and claim his eyes for the Gods & Goddesses…
    Talk about Culture Shock!!!
    LOL 😀

    I have NO patience or tolerance for them anymore at all in even the tiniest way on my best day.
    I will not be treated in such manner by anyone, especially a sub-primate follower of a wholly false and vile ideology spawned from the delusions of a narcissistic megalomaniac.

    • BRAVISSIMA – well done, Mrs. Wilkins!!!

      Much as I wish I could be better: what do you do as a sane human being when you’re confronted by the Devil?? Not for nothing that we Christians plus Jews – and enough others of other faiths – learn to flee and hate him and his demons!!!

      Given that they’re consecrated to evil and the worst kind of force, they’ll not understand anything other than brute force!!! If they get it enough times, often enough, they’ll hopefully decide to clear out…

      • Stare right into their hate-filled, beady, unintelligent, un-sentient eyes is what I do. I’m Pagan…we don’t run, we grab them by their nose hairs and bollocks and sling them back into the 7 Hells…after a solid ass-kicking to ensure that they know return visits to the Human world are ‘discouraged’. :-)
        Literally, metaphorically…works either way. 😀
        I am entirely Finished with according muzzies any respect or tolerance whatsoever. My muslims friends…all went Apostate, and aside from Grandfather, have all become Christian, at Christmas no less. Grandfather…he’s going Buddhist, he likes the Peacefulness and that Buddhists are so well thought of, and a Buddhist is helping him with his Arthritis.
        They’re biggest complaint?
        That they all didn’t do so sooner!!

        So, I no longer have any muslim friends to worry about. They got tired of being hated, and being pressured by other muzzies, and couldn’t accept paying zakat and remaining silent about knowing it went to terrorists.
        So…Christianity and buddhism grew a tiny bit more over the Holidays.
        BTW…when a newly Freed ex-muslim wished you a ‘Merry Christmas’…They MEAN it!!! 😀 This was their First Christmas, and they did enjoy it…for us, it was like seeing Christmas new through their eyes.
        They especially like how there’s the melding of Christianity and Paganity in Christmas…because ‘it feels right’ in reference to Christmas being Universally Inclusive.

        So, I no longer worry about them and their continued enslavement in islam…and as for the muzzies still out there, well, Husband continues my Training 3 days a week, and every session i get a little better and sharper.

        They want ‘jihad’…okay.

      • Doing my best, as is Husband, and others, like our Host here at BNI. TY though!! ADHD…forgot to TY for your compliments, so; Thank-You! :-)
        islam isn’t going to ‘go-away’ on it’s own…cancer occasionally does, spontaneous remission and such…islam is far more intractable and if ignored, spreads faster and deeper than anything else known to exist.
        This is a War for Humanity…it’s between those who would rule Humanity as if they were lesser creatures vs those if us willing to kill or die to protect Humanity’s destiny to someday mature and grow into a Great People.
        islam is just the spearhead of something MUCH larger…but an effective spearhead it is.

  10. Those are some ignorant screwed up fools. Just go back to the desert where you belong and take your demon god with you.

  11. Don’t be upset if a Muslim ignores you when you wish him ‘Happy New Year’

    It doesn’t bother me in the least. I just call them a fucked-in-the-head muslim asshole and keep walking.

  12. I have had it with Muslims, all of them. It is time to start removing them from Western countries.
    New Year’s Resolution: Do not aid or abet Islam in any way. Hinder it, mock it, expose it, and fight it in every way.

  13. I understand how sensitive the muslims can be. So, my greeting is just “all you pricks please just fuck off”. And as for Mo “piss be upon him”.

    • Best to treat them exactly the same way they think of us!!! No greetings (not even a “Hello”, “How are you doing?” or ANYTHING WHATSOEVER!!!), no small talk, nothing!! If they ask you a question, be as cold as possible (without necessarily being impolite) and to the point. If they offer you their LEFT hand to shake, don’t accept it – period!!!

      Make it as inhospitable as possible: try not to do ANY business with them whatsoever!!! If they make ANY trouble whatsoever, kick them out of the store on the slightest possible pretext; if they try to greet you from afar (even smiling), raise your foot and point to the sole. If you pass them and they’ve been particularly obnoxious, you may spit on the ground.

      Hopefully others can add to this “unwelcoming” list for how to treat Moslems…

      • ADHD
        Come on you are not loving your fellow man. That distresses me. After all, we are good Christians right? LOL
        All I can say is they need termination, being minions of Satan. Evil can go straight back to HELL. No holds barred.

        • Dear ICE:

          How can you love somebody who is INCAPABLE of truly loving anybody or anything??? [Animals are FAR better that way than sub-human Moslems…]

          By dint of their ideology and usually their upbringing to boot, Moslems are so bereft of love even from conception that they almost never know to appreciate it or even to recognised it when they see it!!! They only take and aim to KILL AND DESTROY!!!!! They can’t GIVE anything positive…

          Yes, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m in this way being QUITE un-Christian; however, while you may be somehow (by a miracle!!!) able to reach out to an individual who’s not incurably committed to that system (as turned out to be the case with Taysir Abu Saada and Walid Shoebat, God Be Praised), when you’re dealing with a group (especially if it be a gang of them!!), THEN what do you do???
