With many non-Muslims present at this "Islam Awareness Week" lecture in Miami, Abdullah Hakim Quick delivers an enlightening talk about the origins of the major holidays celebrated today. He explains that throughout time there has been a constant struggle between those who believe in one God and those who believe in many gods. And with these struggles, many compromises were made by those who would ultimately influence and shape the major modern day holidays celebrated throughout the world. The result today are rituals not sanctioned by the prophets or scriptures of God, but rather mixed-up beliefs and practices that, essentially, can be attributed to ancient pagan culture. An intellectual analysis of this controversial subject by a well-known Muslim-American historian. The major celebrations analyzed are Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's Day, Easter and Halloween. Other topics discussed: Muslim holidays, Thanksgiving, Kwanza, the Sabbath, celebrating birthdays, the origins of the Hajj, having non-Muslims as friends, dealing with holidays in public school, and pork being served at the school cafeteria.
