MUSLIMS AND X-TIANS TOGETHER ON 5TH FEB 2017

Salaams.

On 5th Feb 2017, me and Rev.Amos Kasibante joined others at the Baab-ul-Ilm Centre, Yorkshire, in the “National Visit My Mosque Day”, a Muslim Council of Britain initiative to reach out to fellow Britons. I sat next to a Muslim brother(photo attached) who I later learned that he had lived in Uganda during the 70s before Idi Amin expelled the Asians. He came to Britain when he was just 9 years old. All speeches carried a message of Peace and the Abrahamic Faiths. Author of many books & director of Islamic society of York Regions, Dr. John Andrew Morrow, spoke to us through skpe. The speech from him was profoundly research oriented and a great learning for the entire audience. We were each given a copy of his book the covenants of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) with Christians of the world at the end of the event.These covenants order the followers of the Prophet to protect peaceful Christians, Jews, and other allied communities until the end of days. Much of this stuff is not understood by non-muslims, especially Conservative Christians who think Islam is war, killing others and terrorism.

It was a very impressive ceremony. I realised more that both Muslims and Christians have got a lot of things in common.In a deeply divided world, i hope that such initiatives will be part of a movement that works towards equality,tolerance and acceptance.
