Imamat Day[edit]

What and when is Imamat Day ? 16th or 25th of Muharram ? It's on Template: Muslimholidays, but I can't find much info in Wikipedia. Thought Muslim holidays would be a good page to include this. -- PFHLai 18:02, 10 February 2006 (UTC)

Abraham and Isaac[edit]


"Animals are slaughtered to commemorate Abraham's sacrificing of a ram instead of his son Isaac, as believed in Islamic tradition. (The Bible says it was his son Isaac who was to be sacrificed.)"

Why is Christianity mentioned? It sounds like someone thinks there was a contrast but if there is, it does not come out in the text. If there is no contrast, the reference should probably be removed. (For the same reason that Islam does not appear in the page on Christmas, even though Jesus is Prophet in Islam.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 09:00, 21 December 2006

well, Islam, and Muslims believe in christianity, unlike the other way round, so it is very expectible to find related topics relating both religions in Islamic pages, and i believe you will find Judaism mentioned too, somewhere.

as for Abraham and Isaac, Muslims believe it was Ishmael and not Isaac that was to be sacrificed, and was chaged with a ram..

Merge with Islamic holidays?[edit]

It looks to me that the Islamic holidays page could be merged with this one. Muslim holidays should probably form the basis of the merged page since it has more general information, but I think the merged page should have the Islamic holidays title. That title is more consistent with the majority of other articles about aspects of Islam. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:26, 3 January 2007

Good idea ... I've tagged it. -- 03:57, 22 January 2007 (UTC)

Other festivals[edit]

How about other celebrations like Nisfu Shaaban, Nuzul Qur'an, Day of Arafah, Isra' Miraj? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 07:21, 15 January 2007 I was wondering if it would be possible to add some Canadian calender sates to the islamic / muslin holiday pages. I am not muslin but have a few acquaintances that are and would like to be able to wish then the appropriate greeting for their festive / holiday / holy daysFred Leeuwenburgh (talk) 19:50, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Saddam's Execution[edit]

I cant believe someone put something like that in the introduction of the Muslims Celebrations, it is provocative, and insulting to all Muslims, ill include it lower in the article later on, as it has no goal in the entire article anyway...

what does Saddam's Execution has to do with 1.3 billion people celebrating religious days??

I think it is only an example to exlain the diference between shia and sunni festival calendar. -- (talk) 11:33, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
It still has no business in the intro of the article, I have removed the sentence. lalib (talk) 17:51, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
