We do this to represent the three kings giving presents of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to Jesus when he was born. We also do this to show other people that they are specia…l to us.
Some reasons presents are given at Christmas are: . We give gifts as a symbolic gesture of remembering the gifts that were given to Jesus by the Magi as well as in thanks to… God for the gift of Jesus. More importantly, God gave His only son (Jesus Christ) so that we can live with Him in heaven someday. He is the only One worthy to pay the price of sin for all mankind. . To show the love and care that you have for others. It is Jesus' Birthday. . We give gifts because we wish to show appreciation for another person. i.
"Tha qabbalallahu minna va minkum" (Meaning: May Allah accept from me and you) is more appropriate than "eid mubarak" because the former has evidences in the age of prophet (P…BUH) and the latter is an invented one.

Eid al-Fitr falls on the first day of Shawwal, the month which follows Ramadan in the Islamic calendar. It is a time to give in charity to those in need, and celebrate with f…amily and friends the completion of a month of blessings and joy. Before the day of Eid, during the last few days of Ramadan, each Muslim family gives a determined amount as a donation to the poor. This donation is of actual food -- rice, barley, dates, rice, etc. -- to ensure that the needy can have a holiday meal and participate in the celebration. This donation is known as sadaqah al-fitr (charity of fast-breaking). On the day of Eid, Muslims gather early in the morning in outdoor locations or mosques to perform the Eid prayer. This consists of a sermon followed by a short congregational prayer. After the Eid prayer, Muslims usually scatter to visit various family and friends, give gifts (especially to children), and make phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. These activities traditionally continue for three days. In most Muslim countries, the entire 3-day period is an official government/school holiday. During the Hajj, Muslims remember and commemorate the trials and triumphs of the Prophet Abraham. The Qur'an describes Abraham as follows: "Surely Abraham was an example, obedient to Allah, by nature upright, and he was not of the polytheists. He was grateful for Our bounties. We chose him and guided him unto a right path. We gave him good in this world, and in the next he will most surely be among the righteous." (Qur'an 16:120-121) One of Abraham's main trials was to face the command of Allah to kill his only son. Upon hearing this command, he prepared to submit to Allah's will. When he was all prepared to do it, Allah revealed to him that his "sacrifice" had already been fulfilled. He had shown that his love for his Lord superceded all others, that he would lay down his own life or the lives of those dear to him in order to submit to God. Why do Muslims sacrifice an animal on this day? During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims commemorate and remember Abraham's trials, by themselves slaughtering an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. This action is very often misunderstood by those outside the faith. Allah has given us power over animals and allowed us to eat meat, but only if we pronounce His name at the solemn act of taking life. Muslims slaughter animals in the same way throughout the year. By saying the name of Allah at the time of slaughter, we are reminded that life is sacred. The meat from the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha is mostly given away to others. One-third is eaten by immediate family and relatives, one-third is given away to friends, and one-third is donated to the poor. The act symbolizes our willingness to give up things that are of benefit to us or close to our hearts, in order to follow Allah's commands. It also symbolizes our willingness to give up some of our own bounties, in order to strengthen ties of friendship and help those who are in need. We recognize that all blessings come from Allah, and we should open our hearts and share with others. It is very important to understand that the sacrifice itself, as practiced by Muslims, has nothing to do with atoning for our sins or using the blood to wash ourselves from sin. This is a misunderstanding by those of previous generations: "It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah; it is your piety that reaches Him." (Qur'an 22:37) The symbolism is in the attitude - a willingness to make sacrifices in our lives in order to stay on the Straight Path. Each of us makes small sacrifices, giving up things that are fun or important to us. A true Muslim, one who submits his or herself completely to the Lord, is willing to follow Allah's commands completely and obediently. It is this strength of heart, purity in faith, and willing obedience that our Lord desires from us. What else do Muslims do to celebrate the holiday? On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter.
Each person will give out 6 presents therefore there are 42 presents in total
santa do u give presents to muslims
Muslims give out Eid cards for greeting their friends and family for this happy occasion which is the same as people giving out birthday cards or Christmas cards or Hanukk…ah cards or Kwanzaa cards or get well cards. The reason is that it's a nice gesture and the cards show that people are remembered.
if they are same sex they are allowed if it is for greetings and there is no sexual purposes. for opposite sex if it is for greetings it allowed only between who are conside…red Mahram (like mother, sister, daughter and other Mahram). for opposite sex for sexual purposes it is allowed only between married couple.
As-Salamu Alaykum - May Peace Be Upon You followed by "Wa alaikum assalaam" -And to You Peace
Yes, you can technically give a Muslim a Christmas present. However I would highly suggest that you do not directly call it a christmas present as this may offer some. Instead… call it a holiday present (holiday from school/work etc) or a December present. This way, you lower the risk of offending someone you care about.
Yes, although poorer people don't.
so u can receive back and it would be a nicew thing to do
