Raheemah Shamsid-Deen-Hampton is one of over 200,000 Muslims living in Philadelphia.

“When you are growing up as a child in Islam, you’re not really clear, or have a clear understanding of why you can’t, and there are things that are celebrated but you are not.”

Michael Rashid, of Philadelphia EID Coalition says, “We already recognize the Christian holidays. Christmas is like a no brainer, Easter is a no brainer, the Jewish holidays are recognized and by recognized we mean there is a city holiday for the school system, city workers are let off and get holiday pay for that.”

Starting this year, New York City public schools will have two additional days off to account for the Muslim observance of Eid.

This week, hundreds in Philadelphia will be rallying around city council to do the same.

Rashid says, “I hope these people come out and they wear their uniforms… police, fire, nurses. I’ll have on my business suit and even though I’m retired, I’ll put on my suit again to show, ‘hey, we are Americans just like you, born and raised in America.”

The political climate for those of the Islamic faith has been undoubtedly polarizing as of late, so the community is prepared for some pushback.

The two holidays, which would mean a day off for all, fall on different days each year. A five-year calendar has been presented to the city.

Raheemah Shamsid-Deen-Hampton, “There are a number of people who have the wrong idea of what Islam is and we just have to be reminded of what our pillars are and what we stand on, and that some of the things happening is not Islam.”

Osama Al-Qasem, President of the Counsel of American Islamic Relations says, “We have pain and joy and sorrow like them, like everybody, so all these myths and misinformation can be dispelled by simple conversation over dinner.”


Wrong idea? The Muslim in the video below helped dispel the notion that Islam is a religion of peace when he tried to kill a Philadelphia police officer in the name of Allah, for Islam. CAIR is also a terrorist organization.

  1. Tell the Muslim Brotherhood to kiss off. They can celebrate Easter and Christmas and that all.

  2. SCREW THEM! NO RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS! Atheist, degenerates, reprobates, Muslims blew that!

  3. The city is not in a position to be able to afford still more unpaid full days to city workers.

    • I agree, then those that are Greek/Serbian Orthodox should have holidays added for them also. When does it end?

  4. Since many government leaders are tethered to the Islamic extremists’ leash, the holidays are and will be imposed upon America anyway.

    If/when they do, home schooling or internet distance education are options are worth pursuing. Another option is to counter these islamic holidays with “Freedom From Islam Celebrations”. This is a great opportunity to teach what islamic extremism truly is.

    One educational resource I found is by Bill Warner, PhD., and he has excellent books and videos available that teach the history of islam and the jihad movements:

    ‘What Is Islam?’:

    There are many peaceful and educational activities that could be planned during these days that could essentially make their islamic holidays off unnoticed or meaningless.

    Bible studies, Christian Conferences, U.S. Constitution education courses and film festivals are just some suggestions. Hosting a party, luncheon or dinner with any of these activities adds opportunities for great fellowship and is always a welcomed activity.

    Teach our children well — or someone else will.

  5. I will personally drive to work that day and sit outside in my car if philadelphia closes for those fictional holidays. No way would a holiday like THAT be forced on me or maybe I will spend the day raising funds for the Israeli causes. And I’m not even Jewish!!

  6. […] halal food, foot basins and squat toilets, daily calls to prayer, time off from work for fasting, paid time off during their many Islamic holidays, gender segregation, exemption from dress codes, release from being patted down by TSA agents […]

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
