Salutations to non-Muslim friends on their holidays


I would like to know if it is allowed for Muslims to wish their non Muslim friends like Happy Deepavalli to Hindus. Thank you.


Muslim scholars don’t have the same opinion about this issue. We believe that as long as we do not greet their gods, there is nothing wrong if we wish our non-Muslim friends Happy Deepavalli, Merry Christmas or Happy Chinese New Year. We must be respectful of each other’s festivals.
