Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discuss the differences between Islam and Christianity regarding theology and beliefs and the things that makes us wonderful as religions of Islam and Christianity. Also, how our communities will get along amicably is also the foundation of this discussion.
Firstly, the misconceptions regarding Interfaith families is addressed suitably. There are many other things beside theology that form the crux of one’s faith. The key is fruitful dialogue with passionate disagreement that can resolve long standing issues.We can remove the fear, distrust, hatred and suspicion in our hearts to begin building bridges between the two religions.
The speaker addresses a big issue amongst Christians – the biggest knowlege of Islam comes from channels for the Christians and it is important to understand what Islam is and what is its foundation. Shaykh Yasir makes us understand that it is important to bond with a Muslim and visit mosques to fully fathom the true basis of Islam.
The originality of the Qur’an and the scriptures of the Christians are the next topic on which light is shed. The element of human nature is completely absent in the Qur’an as it is the Words of Allah to us. But that is not the case of the scriptures of Christians. Only the sayings of the Prophet ﷺ has been preserved in various books called Hadiths. Also, Islamic history has also been recorded by humans. But the Qur’an is only the Words of Allah sent down via Angel Jibreel AS to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ to be communicated to mankind.
