“No You Too!”

“No You Too!”
 If someone wishes you a merry Christmas or the like,
In response dare not say, “You too.”
For this would imply an acceptance of their disbelieving ceremonies,
Even if this is not you,
So explain to them -if you can- that you don’t celebrate such,
Only if this is what you have the time and the ability to do,
If not then draw silent and don’t reciprocate,
Whatever you do, dare not say, “You too!”
(A short poem by Abu ‘Abdis Salaam Siddiq Al Juyaanee)
