Muslims have reasons to feel happy on the birth of Jesus!

We Muslims do not celebrate the birth of Jesus but then we read about his birth umpteen number of times in a year.

Muslims read about Jesus – his miraculous birth, his life and teachings, his mission and miracles – in amazing details in the Qur’an.

Dates in the Qur’an and the Sunnah

Those living in the Gulf states are indeed fortunate to have plenty of dates available throughout the year. As Ramadhaan and dates are seen as synonymous in many parts of the world,  I thought of re-posting this, by way of reminder, from my Seerah blog
