Happy Muslim Easter

Happy Muslim Easter 01

The “fatwa,” authored by Brotherhood leader Abdel Rahman al-Barr, is noteworthy for its degree of “analytical” detail.

In it, Barr quotes extensively from the Qur’an to argue that Muslims should only greet Christians on their holidays “so long as this greeting does not come at the expense of our Islamic religion.”

In other words, Barr writes, Muslims cannot wish Christians a “Happy Easter,” because “our belief as Muslims, which makes ambiguity impossible, is that Jesus wasn’t killed or crucified.”
