    This is so going to go wrong on the EG forum… but I have no one else to ask so I’ll give it a shot...

    I’m about to e-mail quite a few Islamic chappies, and as it is Mawlid (Birth of the Prophet) I thought I’d pop a little greeting on at the start to be polite. You know, like you would say Happy New Year. But… Happy… Birth of the Prophet sounds wrong? Is there a right way to say it? Should I just not say it?

    A quick google seems to show that any good message is acceptable. Happy And Blessed Mawlid al-Nabi! appears to be the most common but that's just from googling "mawlid greetings".

    Just don't put a little drawing of the prophet on the card.

    Happy Muslim Christmas. That should cover it surely.

    I decided to go with "you're far too white and English to be the this clever, just don't even try it". The safety. But thanks for trying.

    And yes, also surprised by the lack of casual racism. Props to EG today!

    And if you do, definitely don't draw him being bummed by an alsatian.

    Islam is a religion, not a race.

    ...and all religions are equally fucking ridiculous.
