Books – Hassan Morsi:
Dr. Shawqi Allam, Mufti of the Republic, said that the fatwas that forbid congratulating our Christian brothers on the birth of Jesus, peace be upon him, are fatwas that are outdated.
Allam added, during his interview with the “Nazra” program, broadcast on the “Echo of the Country” channel, presented by the journalist Hamdi Rizk, that the Holy Qur’an celebrated Jesus and his mother Mary, peace be upon them, and we should celebrate Mary, peace be upon her.
The Mufti of the Republic added that congratulating our Christian brothers on the birth of Christ is one of the gates of righteousness that God has commanded us, pointing out that Egyptian religious institutions exchange congratulations on various occasions.
Shawky Allam explained that the participation of the nation’s partners in their feasts and occasions and exchanging joy with them is a form of peace, greeting and good neighborliness.
