The Secret to Santa`s One Night Flight

Many Muslims are quite misinformed about western cultural tokens (as well as of their own religion) and make the mistake of attempting to correct their misunderstanding by asking their local imams for clarification. Unfortunately for these Muslims, their imams are even more ignorant of modern civilization, subscribing as they do to the Islamic dictum regarding knowledge from sources other than the Holy Qur'an: "If it's in the Qur'an, then it [western knowledge] is redundant; If it's not in the Qur'an, then it [western knowledge] is not necessary."
For those Muslims and Muslimahs seeking knowledge of infidel ways I have created the Ask the Vizier (℠) series of posts to answer their questions.
Today's question comes from Kuz-Marta-Buk from Bahrain who asks:
Q: Dear Grand Vizier, The Christians say that Santa delivers all the toys for all the children of the world in one night. When I mocked them for their silly beliefs, they retorted with: "Did not Mohammed also travel in one night from Earth to Heaven, a distance considerably longer than the farthest reachest of any place on Earth?"
They had me there, Oh Great Vizier. I suppose if Mohammed, ṣall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam, can travel all that way in one night, then it must be possible for Santa to travel great distance in one night also.
Was I wrong to mock their beliefs?
A: In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.
Mockery is pride and leads to evil deeds and is therefore haram. Iblis (the Devil) was the first to employ mockery when he mocked man, saying that his creation, the jinn, are superior to mankind, the creation of Allah, subhana watala.
But you must resist the temptation to mock other beliefs for Iblis has no power other than to cast evil suggestion into your heart.
OK, that is the answer you shall give to the disbelievers so they will believe we are tolerant of other faiths. In truth, we Muslim know that Islam is the only true religion and all others are a blasphemy and mockery against Allah, our prophet, and Islam. You are permitted among yourselves to mock the Crusaders (1) and Zionists, for they were shown the true path and continued in their disbelief.
As for Santa delivering toys in one night to every child in the world, how can anyone believe such nonsense that one man can traverse such great distances in such a short span of time?
And Allāh knows best.
Muslims sadly denigrate the achievements of Jews and so they do not pay attention to Einstein's theory of relativity which mathematically proves that Time depends on velocity and so when Santa fires up his reindeer to approach warp speed one, the actual delivery of toys, although it takes Santa almost a year to complete in sleigh time, in Earth time it is only one night.
Blogger Findalis at Monkey in the Middle tells us that Santa's movements can be tracked using the facilities of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) here.
This has been question number 5 in my series Ask the Vizier (℠):

Jihad Watch, Muslim employers mock, then murder, Christian milkman
Ashraf Masih, 30, from the village of Shajwal was hired two months ago by three Muslim men to collect milk from neighbouring farms and houses.
In January, after working for one month Ashraf came to collect his wages. However his employers, brothers Muhammad Arfan, Muhammad Nadeem and their nephew Muhammad Imran, said that they would pay him two months wages after one more month.
With the need to support his family becoming more urgent, Ashraf returned on 1 February and again demanded his wages.
The three Muslims reportedly responded angrily to Ashraf's request, saying, “You are Esai [a derogatory term for Christians] and you demanded your pay from Muslims, what courage you have. We will finish you right now. Then go to your Esa [Christ], He will give you everything.”
The three men then killed Ashraf and fled the scene.
... The police have begun an investigation but have not yet found the killers.
