Are you sure you mean to wish us Happy Passover?


Passover is a celebration of the Exodus from Egypt and the return of the Jewish people to their homeland, the land of Israel.  It is a celebration of the restoration of the sovereignty of the Jewish people in their own land. It is a celebration of the liberation of the Jewish people from oppression. These things tend not to be things you support.  


However, sincere well wishes are always appreciated. Thank you.

HAPPY PASSOVER!  


A Zizzen Pesach! (Have a sweet Passover) 


Next Year in Jerusalem!


L'Shanah Haba'ah B'Yerushalayim!

>>>>>>> Yes. I am sure.


In fact Muslims all over the world also recognize and celebrate passover. The event is known as "Ashura" to Muslims. We pray and many of us fast honoring prophet Moses and his people.


It is a historical fact that was reconfirmed by prophet Muhammad PBUH. He fasted and claimed he was from the tradition Moses, Abraham and Jesus came from.


So I recognize God's mercy and honor it.



Here is a B-net article on this...........



.........



This day in particular, and this month in general, have a number of significances for both Sunni and Shia Muslims.


Muharram is the month during which the Prophet emigrated from Mecca to Medina, the event which marked the beginning of the Muslim calendar and the founding of the first Islamic city-state in Medina. Ashura is the day that God saved Moses and the Children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt. The Prophet encouraged Muslims to fast this day (and the day before) in gratitude to God, just as Moses did thousands of years before.


The fast of Ashura is not obligatory. Nevertheless, fasting during Ashura is greatly encouraged and handsomely rewarded by God. It is significant, and fascinating, that the faithful of one major religion, Islam, perform extra acts of worship in gratitude to God for one of the most important events in the sacred history of another major world religion, Judaism.

Why shouldn't he do that?


Passover is a celebration of the Exodus from Egypt and the return of the Jewish people to their homeland, the land of Israel.  It is a celebration of the restoration of the sovereignty of the Jewish people in their own land. It is a celebration of the liberation of the Jewish people from oppression. These things tend not to be things you support



And so, he shouldn't be polite and honorable in his greetings to his Jewish Brethren?

.  


However, sincere well wishes are always appreciated. Thank you.



Maybe you should wish him a happy "Eid ul Fitr" in return, when it comes around?

EVERYONE! 


HAPPY PASSOVER!  


A Zizzen Pesach! (Have a sweet Passover) 


Next Year in Jerusalem!


L'Shanah Haba'ah B'Yerushalayim!






A Zizzen Pesach, back to you!


And sweet as that second sentiment is, the Holy City of Peace is in Jewish hands as well as hearts, it is not just next year's hope!
