Offering gifts to some women on Christmas

Offering gifts to some women on Christmas
There is a common practice here in the west, that at christmas time some non-muslims, young and old, get together and gather all of their names, put them in a hat and have all of the names mixed up, then each person choses the name of another person who they will give a gift to on christmas day.  

This is called chris kringle.  

This basic idea was taken on by a group of sisters last year and now they want to take this practise on this year also for the end of eid.  All that the practice consists of, is each sister randomly assigned another sister for whom she must buy a gift of a set value ($20 )

Some of the sisters invloved beleive that this practsie is tashabu of the kufar, is this correct?


be to Allaah.

What some sisters have said to you, that this action
is something that is not permitted, is correct, because it involves
imitating the kuffaar in two ways. 

Firstly it involves celebrating this festival, which
is something that is haraam according to sharee’ah, including offering
gifts on this festival. 

Secondly, it involves imitating the kaafirs in these
customs on the day of their celebration of that innovated festival. 

In Islam we have only Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adhaa. Any
other festivals that have been innovated besides these two amount to
nothing, especially if they are the religious festivals of other religions
or groups that are beyond the pale of Islam. 

Please see Question no. 947 

This matter opens the door to bid’ah, and it comes under the general meaning of the words of the Prophet

(peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “Whoever innovates anything in this matter of ours that is not part of it will have it rejected.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, al-Sulh 2499; Muslim, 1718). And Allaah knows best.

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
