Muslims & Christmas- Etiquettes and rulings

"Even most practicing Christians don't celebrate Christmas
(they believe the birth of Isa [a.s] to be in Spring/summer)
but some so called "Muslims" are trying to be more Christian than even the Christians sadly..."

Christmas or New year is a testing time for Muslims, we have a lot to put up with the "modern Muslim" who encourage us to compromise our faith.

Marrying One With Who Suckled Less than Five Times?

Source : Shafiifiqh.com / 09 Nov 2013

Question:

 Assalam o Alicum, I would like to ask the imam sahib a question about the rule of breastfeeding which makes a person a mehram. My first cousin and I would like to get married but the issue is that he was breastfed by my mother, who is his aunt. I have read numerous views on this issue. Some scholars believe that one suckling is enough to make a person mehram and others believe that the suckling or breastfeeding session should be five or more times within the first two years of a childs life to make him a mehram. Since he was only fed once by my mother, can we get married? I would truly appreciate if you can share your findings with me on this issue.
