Collecting donations to give gifts to poor families at Christmas

Collecting donations to give gifts to poor families at Christmas
In my school it is Christmas time. My school has this Christmas tradition. Every year a classroom gets an adopted family that is poor so they can buy gifts, food, and donate money to them for Christmas. Unfortunately, I have refused to donate any money or give any food for the following reason:
-These denotations will be done in the name of christmas, so that when the adopted family receives these donations, they will say "God Bless The Christians".

Am I right for refusing to give donations?


Praise be to Allaah. 

seems that you are referring to the birth of the Messiah (peace be upon
him), an occasion which the Christians venerate and have taken as a
festival. The festivals of the Christians are part of their religion, and
if the Muslims venerate the festivals of the kuffaar by expressing joy and
giving gifts, this means that they are imitating them. The Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Whoever imitates a
people is one of them.” Muslims must beware of imitating the Christians
in their festivals and of following the customs that belong only to them.
You did well and you did the right thing when you did not agree to collect
donations for poor families on the occasion of Christmas, so adhere to
that and advise your brothers and explain to them that this action is not
permissible, because we Muslims have no festivals apart from Eid al-Fitr
and Eid al-Adhaa. Allaah has given us these two festivals and we have no
need of the festivals of the kaafirs.

by Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Barraak.

we Muslims want to give in charity, we can give to those who really
deserve it, and we should not aim to do that specifically on the days of
the kaafirs’ festivals. We should do that whenever there is a need, and
make the most of good and great occasions such as the month of Ramadaan
and the first ten days of Dhu’l-Hijjah, and other virtuous occasions
when rewards are multiplied. We should also do that at times of hardship,
as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

he has not attempted to pass on the path that is steep (i.e. the path
which will lead to goodness and success).

what will make you know the path that is steep?

is) freeing a neck (slave)

giving food in a day of hunger (famine),

an orphan near of kin.

to a Miskeen (poor) cleaving to
dust (out of misery).

he became one of those who believed (in the Islamic Monotheism) and
recommended one another to perseverance and patience, and (also)
recommended one another to pity and compassion.

are those on the Right Hand (i.e. the dwellers of Paradise)”


May Allaah bless our Prophet Muhammad.

The things Muslim should do. We as Muslim should give our first priority to learn quran and do quran reading to seek the right path of Islam and through the quran teaching we can achieve the goal of our life and the deputy to guiding our kids to learn Koran that we should fulfill with perfecting kids quran recitation power and knowledge in Islam and also motivate our children’s to do quran memorization and then guide them to learn holy Quran tafseer  so they could understand the quran in Arabic and the quranic translation and also let or kids to listen quran from top quran reciters to get them inspired. at last I would pray for all my Muslim brothers and sisters that may Allah accept there Dwas and prayers and inspire you with the teachings of our holy prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) so let us join hands and spread the knowledge that every Muslim is born to spread the knowledge of Islam now a day many online quran tutor are available for kids and elders to learn tajweed quran and with exact pronunciation and perfect the quran recitation online with qualified teaching staff  who can guide then with there experience and knowledge and the write teachings to help us in achieving the path of Jannah
