What is Muslims attitude toward Christmas?

I saw a pamphlet here in the UK which claims that Christmas is a lie and an evil and that it is the duty of Muslims to attack it. The pamphlet is incoherent and it actually blames Christmas for crimes such as domestic violence and societal ills such as homelessness!

Two phenomena that also exist in the Muslim world, so who is to blame them on there? The pamphlet is an incoherent rant like you said and should be taken as the attitude of its self-righteous authors only. They represent only themselves.

Islam treats other faiths with respect, even as it strongly disagrees with their theologies. The Prophet (PBUH) said that “For every community is their feast.” And God tells us in the holy Quran to “invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good preaching, and argue with them in the most beautiful manner. Verily, your Lord knows best whom has strayed from His way and it is He who knows best whom are the guided”? (16:125)

Islam gives particular consideration to “the People of the Book”, i.e., the Jews and Christians. God says in the holy Quran, “And do not argue with the People of the Book except in the most beautiful way” (29:46).
