160209曹洞宗The Islamic teachings of, god being alone and the 6 Iman and 5 Ibadah,. Also the current situation of Muslims living in Japan was our primary talk.

I completely agree on the opinion made during the answer and question time, that having mutual respect towards other religions and also having the interest to understand is what’s important.

I felt very delighted seeing a Buddhist showing interest on Islam and coming to ask for books to learn furthermore about Islam after the discussion.
