We gained a chance to introduce Islam two times in Nagoya YWCA (Young Women’s Christian Association).
On both days we were kindly allowed to give a speech entitled “Muslim children living in this area”. It was significant to give an outline of Islam as well as an introduction about Muslims’ life and about the current situation of Muslim children, to people who rarely have any contact with Islam. We think we can have most mutual understanding with Christians, as people of the book who believe in the same one God. We want to deepen the interchange from now on by finding out the common points rather than looking towards the different points.
“Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve”
Holy Qur’an, Sura Al-Baqarah, verse number (62)
