  • No we do not observe good friday.
    friday is our day of worship and is believed to be the best day of the week.
    As for Jesus we believe in him but as a Prophet.

  • The third answer to this question stated that it was an Islamic holiday.
    So that's where my question came from. So this person must have misunderstood the question. Thank you for clarifying!

  • I do know that Muslims have high respect for Jesus, and for Mary. They just do not believe that He is God. I have found that Muslims are much more respectful when talking about Jesus than are the people who are opposed to religion in general.

  • No they don't celebrate Good Friday, but they do have Friday Prayers. Friday is the Muslim day of worship.
