Merry Christmas to our Muslim Friends

cropped-img_4606.jpgIt’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere we go
Right here in the Middle East its such a sight to see
Santa Claus, dancing elves, and mistle toe

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
you should come and see
Regardless of what some Americans say
We are happy in every way
Shopping, wrapping presents and decorating Christmas trees

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Donald Trump is very wrong
We are living here with our Muslim friends
Harmony never ends
And the Republicans are such — ding-dongs

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Christ and Islam unite
We are enjoying the festive time
Chowing down on our holiday delight
as the Muslim eat their dates and we drink our wine

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Flipping the bird to Fox and Friends
We are setting our differences aside
Kandoras and abayas you shouldn’t hide
During this festive time we stand side-by-side

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Merry Christmas to our Muslim friends
We sing yalla habbi to one and all
Inshallah the ignorance will end
If we just — will open — our hearts!

      1. Hi, Islam believes that Jesus is one of the most respected Prophets of God. We all believe that Jesus’ s birtg was a miracle. Mary would be the leader of women in heaven as she is considered to be the most pious of women.


    1. Wrong Gina. Muslims very much believe in, respect and revere Jesus. They revere him as one of the greatest prophets God sent to humankind.
      However, Islam doesn’t accept the doctrine of Trinity decided on and promulgated by the Catholic Church at the Nicaea Conference in 325AD. Islam is a monotheistic religion and Muslims believe in the unity of God as stated in the Bible in Deutoronomy 6:4 (Hear oh Israel The Lord thy God is one Lord) and as stated in many other biblical verses.


      1. Hi Lena, Thanks for reading. I try not to talk about things I know nothing about therefore my mention of “Christ and Islam unite” meant religions supporting each other in harmony. Thank you for enlightening us all 😊
