Woman in tears after being proposed to on Christmas morning in front …
A preacher has hit out at festive traditions in the West, arguing that saying “Merry Christmas” is worse than congratulating someone for committing murder.
Hard-line Islamic preacher Wissam Haddad, also known as Abu Ousayd, is a supporter of Islamic State and preaches at the Al-Madina Dawah Centre in Sydney.
He gave a lecture last week which was posted on YouTube, which was titled “Christmas for a Muslim?”.
“Congratulating them [on non-Muslim festivals] is more severe and hated by Allah than congratulating someone for drinking [alcohol], for committing murder, or committing adultery, and so on,” he said in the video.
