March 7, 2010 – Appreciating Islam

Nashwan Hamza with Rev. David McArthur

The way of peace through submission to the will of God has really been around since Creation. This is the 95% of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism that is identical. A Muslim (literally one who submits to the will of God) feels our purpose here in this Earthly existence is two-fold. First is to live in harmony– even to differentiate among the peoples of the Earth is to fail in that. Second is to study to know God, Who is evidenced by everything around us.

Is it a coincidence that Unity began as study groups, and that our classes are a mainstay for us still? And do we not strive for harmony with each other, our community, our world around us? We say every Sunday, “In striving to know You, God, we are one.” How affirming to know our Unity with those of “other” faiths!

So peace to you; salaam alaikum!
