JESUS –REASON FOR THE SEASON
Invariably, at the December 25th holiday season Christians are fond of parroting about that “Jesus is the reason for the season.”
While Christians can choose any day they like to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, December 25th or “Christmas” as it is called, has nothing to do with Jesus.
Allāh God reveals to us in His Qur’an that Jesus was born at a time when dates were in season–(Qur’an 19:23-25).
And, unless at the time of his birth –c. 6 BC–AD 301– the climate in Palestine was opposite to what it is now (and the history experts can verify this), dates are not in season during wintertime but in summertime! Muhammad Ali notes in his commentary to Qur’an 19:23-25:
“It is now a recognized fact that the 25th December was not Jesus’ birthday. Bishop Barnes says in the Rise of Christianity: “There is, moreover, no authority for the belief that December 25 was the actual birthday of Jesus. If we can give any credence to the birth-story of Luke, with the shepherds keeping watch by night in the fields near Bethlehem, the birth of Jesus did not take place in winter, when the night temperature is so low in the hill country of Judea that snow is not uncommon. After much argument our Christmas day seems to have been accepted about A.D. 300.” (p. 79). Bishop Barnes then goes on to relate that the 25th of December was taken from the Persian cult, Mithra being the God of the invincible sun: “And his festal day was suitably that on which, after the winter solstice, the sun again began clearly to show his strength.”” (Highlight added).
Decorating the “Christmas” tree is also paganism. The Bible says: “Thus saith the Lord, Learn not the way of the heathen … For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest…They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move not…But they are altogether brutish and foolish: the stock is a doctrine of vanities” –(Jeremiah 10:2-8).
How did Jesus come to be entangled with Mithraism/Paganism? Allāh reveals (and research has proved) that son of God belief is a remnant of paganism: “And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allāh; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allāh. These are the words of their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before. Allāh’s curse be on them! How they are turned away”–(Qur’an 9:30).
To which Muhammad Ali notes: “when St. Paul saw that the Jews would on no account accept Jesus Christ as a messenger of God, he introduced the pagan doctrine of sonship of God into the Christian religion, so that it might become more acceptable to the pagans.”
Maurice Bucaille points out in his book The Bible The Qur’an and Science:
“As far as the decades following Jesus’s mission are concerned, it must be understood that events did not at all happen in the way they have been said to have taken place and that Peter’s arrival in Rome no way laid the foundations for the Church. On the contrary, from the time Jesus left earth to the second half of the Second century, there was a struggle between two factions. One was what one might call Pauline Christianity and the other Judeo-Christianity.”
“Paul is the most controversial figure in Christianity. He was considered to be a traitor to Jesus’s thought by the latter’s family and by the apostles who had stayed in Jerusalem in the circle around James. Paul created Christianity at the expense of those whom Jesus had gathered around him to spread his teachings…Paul’s style of Christianity won through definitively, and created its own collection of official texts.”(pp. 50, 52-53).
Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din points out in his Open Letters To The Bishops Of Salisbury & London:
“Jesus was the last of the series, brought on the pagan altar to popularize Christianity amongst the pagan world. The period of God-Incarnate is over. Christianity has proved the last chapter in the history of the Mystery cult. But a very poor one. The former cults had the beauty of originality in conception, the nicety of the flight of imagination. But the Church aped the old cult most slavishly and boorishly. She went so far as to steal word by word the whole pagan terminology. Almost all the names given to Jesus in the Church theology have been taken from the same source–(Khwaja has noted in his book The Sources of Christianity some of these names, such as “God’s First Begotten Son, the Intermediary between God and man;” “The Good Shepherd;” “The Bread of Life;” “Seated next to God;” etc, p. 78).
The Alpha and Omega of Bacchus was put into the mouth of Jesus to suit the theory of Logos –another piece of literary larceny from Philo and others of the Alexandrian philosophy. The Qur’an exposed it at a time when no other suspected it. It said: “The Christian says the Messiah is the son of God; these are the words of their mouth; they imitate the sayings of those who were pagan before; Allah destroyed them, now they are turned away” (Qur’an 9:30). Yes, God destroyed paganism through His Messengers, of whom Jesus was one, but it lived again through his followers; and lo! those who gave the name “heathens” to others became the same themselves.” (pp. 25-26) (Highlight added).
Allāh, God, admonishes Christians in the Qur’an 4:171:
“O People of the Book, exceed not the limits
in your religion nor speak anything about
Allah, but the truth.
The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is only
a messenger of Allah and His word which
He communicated to Mary and a mercy
from Him. So believe in Allah and
And say not, Three (Trinity).
Desist, it is better for you.
Allah is only one God.
Far be it from His glory to have a son.
To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens
and whatever is in the earth.
And sufficient is Allah as having charge
In general, Santa Claus and Rudolph the “red-nosed” reindeer, and the decorated “pagan” tree overshadow Jesus in the December 25th season.
The name of Jesus Christ may be affixed to the December 25th season –“Christ”mas– but it is not Jesus Christ that is the “reason for the season;” the “reason for the season” is Paganism!
In contradiction to Christian’s claim that Jesus brought peace and love to the world; Jesus Christ brought misery, strife, hate and division to the world. (See JESUS-NO PEACE & JOY).
Whereas Jesus was only a messenger of God sent to the Israelites to call them to “repentance” and “forgiveness”, Christians con-signed Jesus to the bed of celibacy, crowned him with Divinity and made him scapegoat for non-existent inherited sin. (See JESUS-LIKE DAVID).
Jesus says you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free (from lies, falsehood, and blasphemy). And the Divine truth is, Jesus was a prophet of God sent ONLY FOR JEWSand to foretell the coming of the COMFORTER(MOHAMMAD)who will guide into “all truth” and will “abide forever” and whom all are to follow; and
“THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLĀH;
MOHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLĀH!”
While Allāh, God, would not call us to account for that which we do not know, when knowledge comes to us what reason or excuse can we have for not accepting and follow it? “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath NEVERforgiveness but is in danger of ETERNAL DAMNATION”–(Mark 3:29).
While we are alive we have the grand opportunity to repent and have eternal life in Paradise. When we die there is no second chance.
