Dear Brother / Sister,
We do not think it is not permissible to express good wishes for the religious feast days of our non-Muslim relatives and neighbors. Living in a non-Muslim country may bring us something extra.
We think we can serve Islam by understanding the conditions of this age, when the whole world is like a city, and by showing the beauties of Islam and the kindness of Muslims to non-Muslims. However, it is necessary not to adopt and accept their religious feast days.
