Much time is spent rightfully saluting Islamic Liberationist forces in Syria and Iraq for protecting Christians, their sanctities and upholding their traditions like Christmas in the face of the hateful, destructive Wahhabi-Takfiri scourge, but what about the Christians standing with Muslims on our holiest days? Salutes just as massive are in order for them too. Pictured here are the Orthodox Christians of occupied Palestine celebrating Mawlid al-Nabawi, the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), with their Muslim brethren. This gesture of solidarity and communal harmony comes as a transhistorical ode to Abyssinian Christian King Ashama ibn Abjar (also known as Armah), who granted asylum to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) and the persecuted early Muslims, as well as an ode to Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself, who defended Christians, their religious art, their churches and upheld their traditions through a series of unbroken covenants and treaties from Najran to Egypt. Not to mention, it is a defiant act of Muslim-Christian Co-Resistance in the face of the Dajjalic-Jewish-Zionist occupation.
Yes, just as we Muslims love Jesus Christ The Messiah (A.S.) as much as our Christian brethren, Christians, in spite of the global, elephantine hasbara campaign against Islam, respect and cherish Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) based on a profound indigenous history which cannot be subverted. For over a century, the Zionist Jews who stole Palestine have attempted to drive a wedge between Muslims and Christians, and for over a century, this divisive scheme of fitnah has been upended. In these dire times of Zionist-orchestrated chaos, the Palestinian people remain our source of strength and inspiration through their steadfastness; Palestine indeed remains our compass. Muslims and Christians, standing as one in the name of Khatam Al-Nabiyeen (S.A.W.W.) The Jewish occupiers must be losing their Halakhic-Talmudic minds over their failure to prevent the cementing of such a bond. This is unity, the most beautiful unity in fact, that the usurping ‘Israeli’ tumor cannot tear apart. It is also the antidote that the usurping ‘Israeli’ tumor will not survive. Happy birthday ya Rasoulallah (S.A.W.W.)! Your legacy of an Islamic-Christian alliance on the soil where you once ascended to Heaven is fully intact!
