Is wishing "Merry Christmas" haram in Islam?

it's Shirk because wishing a Christian "Merry Christmas" is equal to believing that Jesus Christ was the "Son of God" and he was born on 25th of Dec

Quran 19:88-92

They say: (God) Most Gracious has begotten a son! Indeed ye have put forth a thing most monstrous! At it the skies are ready to burst, the earth to split asunder, and the mountains to fall down in utter ruin, that they should invoke a son for (God) Most Gracious. For it is not consonant with the majesty of (God) Most Gracious that He should beget a son.

Quran 112

Say: He is Allah the One and Only; Allah the Eternal Absolute; He begets not nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him.

According to Islam, God neither begets nor he is begotten & the biggest abuse you can give to God is to say He begot a son. This is because; begetting is a lower animal function of sex which cannot be attributed to God.

According to Christianity, Jesus (pbuh) is the only begotten son of God & Christmas is celebrated as his birthday. Since this is considered as the biggest abuse given to God, Muslims are not allowed to wish Christians on this day.
