The handing out of Easter eggs dates back to ancient pagan traditions as well. In ancient Egypt and Persia eggs were exchanged in Spring as a symbol of new life.
Thus, one of the most important Christian festivals only originated hundreds of years after Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and then too incorporated pagan aspects.
It is abhorrent for a Muslim to hold on to pagan ideas after the truth has come. Equally repugnant is to create innovations in religion. Things not found in the time of Jesus (alaihis salaam) are celebrated with great show by Christians.
THE TRUTH IS only Islam, pure and unadulterated. We need to beware of devising new celebrations and ideas, which were not found in the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)’s era, and make them part of Islam as the Christians have done.
