Come hear a Jewish rabbi, Mormon Christian minister and Muslim Imam explore their faith connections and how Muhammad is viewed in each of the Abrahamic faiths. Learn how these faiths are connected and get your questions answered about these three faiths. Each speaker will make a presentation and then all three will take questions. Speakers: Rabbi Andrew Paley of Temple Shalom, President Barry Smith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Imam Muhammed Shakoor of Masjid WDM. This event is free and open to the public. A reception with refreshments for further interfaith dialogue follows the program. Come learn and understand more about these three faiths.

Connecting Our Faiths is presented by Masjid WDM as an effort to promote understanding and bring faiths together knowing we are all created by the One God.

Prophet Muhammad, the peace maker

http://wisdomofreligion.blogspot.com/2010/02/prophet-muhammads-birthday-celebrations.html


Prophet Muhammad’s whole life is strewn with examples of mitigating conflicts and nurturing goodwill. Indeed, in the Qur’aan God says, to every nation and every community I have sent a peace maker (call it a Messenger, Avatar or a Prophet) and then adds, I have created you into nations, tribes and different communities, the best among you is the one who does good to the creation; life and matter and then he advises mankind to get to know each other. I believe knowledge leads to understanding and understanding to acceptance and appreciation of the other.

Prophet Muhammad defines a good deed is like planting a tree; where you know that by the time that tree matures to give the fruit or the shade, you are not the beneficiary, but someone else is. As we have benefited from legacy we have bequeathed, we have to leave it to the future. The best among us is one who treats life and nature as a trust that we have to preserve, protect and nurture.

I have selected ten representative things that Prophet had initiated that goes towards mitigating conflicts and nurturing goodwill. I bet that you can relate with similar examples of the masters that you are familiar with. His whole life was about Justice and peace making. I will post the presentation in a few days or you can send an email to receive the Journal of Islamic Pluralism: thejournalofislamicpluralism@gmail.com

Alexis Yancey Jaami & Marzuk Jaami

This couple is commited to interfaith dialogue, for the last four years, they are bringing together people of faith to listen and understand the perspectives of Jews, Christians and Muslims. The topics such as Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhamamad, Charity and others are shared.

At the 5th Annual Unity Day USA event the couple was honored by the World Muslim Congress and the Foundation for Pluralism for their exemplary work in promoting understanding between Jews, Christians and Muslims.

I am humbled to appreciate their service to humanity.

  1. The Quran teaches that Torah (called “Tourat” in Arabic) is the word of ha-Sheim (the Creator). It teaches it has been redacted, but there are no proofs of that statement. It teaches to follow Mosheh (called “Mousa” in Quran), so it is important to know that according to Torah, Mosheh taught that one should follow the mitzwot (commandments) in Torah, including not eating shellfish; and that one should keep Shabat (including not working on Shabat). A perfect Creator implies He does not change.

    The Quran teaches that Torah (called “Tourat” in Arabic) is the word of ha-Sheim (the Creator). It teaches it has been redacted, but there are no proofs of that statement. It teaches that one should follow Mosheh (called “Mousa” in Quran), so it is important to know that according to Torah, Mosheh taught that one should follow the mitzwot (directives or military-style orders) in Torah, including not eating shellfish; and that one should keep Shabat (including not working on Shabat). A perfect Creator implies that He does not change.

    According to formal logic the burden of proof is on the person making the statement, without any proofs whatsoever, that Torah has been redacted.
    Formal logical rules: You can not assume that the Quran origins from the Creator. Such a statement must be proven using formal logic.
