LouisvilleKy.Gov recently shared thoughts on the holiday season from community and religious leaders. MAC President, Dr. Muhammad Babar shared his feelings here:
Spirit of the season ‘touches the heart of everyone’
The holiday season is definitely the best time of the year with all of its festivities and bright lights. Whether one is Christian or not, spirit of days surrounding the Christmas season touches the heart of everyone. Both Jesus and Mary are the revered figures in Islam as in Holy Quran, Jesus is mentioned 49 times and a whole chapter is dedicated to Mary.
Therefore on Christmas Day, I make prayers for my family, friends and humanity in general while enjoying the cultural aspect of this sacred day.
