El jeque Yahya Safi, el imán jefe en la mezquita de Lakemba (suburbios occidentales de Sydney), ha declarado una fetua contra la Navidad diciendo a sus seguidores que no se asocien con nada que ver con ella, en un país que es predominantemente cristiano.

La fatua afirmó que los “incrédulos están tratando de sacar a los musulmanes del camino recto”.

La fatua continuó alegando que la Navidad pertenece a las “falsedades que un musulmán debe evitar… y por lo tanto, a un musulmán no se le permite celebrar el día de Navidad ni se le permite felicitar a aquellos que lo hagan”.

La publicación de la fatua ha sorprendido a muchos líderes musulmanes. El Gran Mufti de Australia, Ibrahim Abu Mohammad, dijo que los fundamentos del Islam eran la paz, la cooperación, el respeto y la celebración de otros en estima, informó el medio Sydney Morning Herald.

“Cualquiera que diga lo contrario está hablando de manera irresponsable”, dijo.

“Hay diferencia entre mostrar respeto por la creencia de alguien y compartir esas creencias”, dijo el Dr. Ibrahim.

“Tenemos que tener buenas relaciones con todas las personas, y felicitarlas por sus acontecimientos es muy importante”, continuó.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
