In this week’s episode of “Reform This!” Dr. Zuhdi Jasser takes on the Islamic fundamentalists who radically refuse to participate in anything having to do with Christmas, including public school and community celebrations.
Muslims in general should not be confused with Separatist Islamist. As the name implies, Separatist Islamists consider themselves to be separate and superior to other faiths. They seek to control how people choose to celebrate and believe that they alone will have access to Heaven.
By contrast, moderate Muslims believe that everyone has a right to their own faith. They respect the origins and traditions of the Christian faith and, while they do not believe that Jesus is the son of God, they do believe in the same God of all Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Unlike Islamic fundamentalists, moderate Muslims do not separate themselves from community Christmas activities or disallow their children to participate in public Christmas celebrations.
“That’s what this is about. It’s not just about celebrating Christmas; it’s about weakness; it’s about inferiority. It’s about a belief by Islamist that if they allow their kids and their families to believe, that Christians have equal access to Heaven,” said Dr. Zuhdi. “Part of our Muslim reform movement is to acknowledge that Jews, Christians and those who believe in God have equal access to heaven. It’s not ours to judge. While the Wahhabis [Separatist Islamists] believe that only their type of Muslims … are the only ones going to Heaven.”
