faith could be a good platform for unity

Look out for our forth coming local project 'Faith Anchor'

outline: posing just 1 question to the members of general public on high street on a few busy days of summer-who wish and stop to talk to us for a minute- the response will be recorded and edited for public education.

'Do you think Faith is something needed in your life or various entertainments, alcohol, drugs,smoking etc. are enough or better of an alternatives?'

the members of the local Faith partnership would be posing the Q. and would be there off n on to discuss any issues/Q.

community champions org.UK has kindly funded this project ;putting your heart back to the communities'

http://www.dfes.gov.uk/communitychampions/

may organize similar in own areas.

(the following verses must be looked at with the full contxt of the surah and its pair surah a'l e imran which details the mistakes done by the people of the book of the times before and during the presence of the last prophet Muhammad sws/pbuh and they deliberately rejected his prophethood. it does not necessarily apply to the jews and christians of today's time 'n age.)

They say'Become Jews or Christians if you would be guided (to salvation).'
Say you:'(I would rather) the religion of Abraham the True, and he joined not gods with God.'
Say you: 'We believe in God and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham,Ismail,Isaac,Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord. We make no difference between one another of them:and we bow to God in Islam'

My reply is to shahidas;

It is true that the majority of people who would tick the "Christian Box" in hospital or questionare are not "practicing Christians". None-the-less, if pushed, they would respond along the lines of belief in "Jesus as the son of God". Church congregations are populated by believers who have a very dubious view of the faith, and my work with the "Faith Junction" project has led me to believe that Chrisianity is not the only religion to suffer from ignorance at grassroots level. It is common to all faiths, and I have found that it is the enquiring mind that seeks God, and the enquiring mind will not be satisfied with a simple set of rules. Indeed, the simple rule-set will breed fundamentalism, whereas the enquiring mind will delve deeper and deeper, and will be interested in all aspects of faith, and inter-faith, in a search for truth and wisdom, whereas the grassroots seek God's favour.

Thank you David for your reply.
I am very much in agreement with what you have said that "its the enquiring mind that seeks God". One has to be very open minded to learn and find out about other faiths. Its been stressed in our Holy Quran many times "Tadabbur, Tafakkur and Tazakkur" ( to find means to learn reading, to think and to read again and again so you remember whats been written ) means that why does not one adopt methods to learn and find out, think and to read Quran over and over again to actually understand and remember while you are carrying out your daily routines. One dont have to just have blind faith upon it so read, understand and think and you will get convinced if you are wholeheartedly seeking truth.
What I am trying to say is actually its Quran that teaches us to think and have an enquiring attitude. Its ok to be born a christian, muslim or hindu etc, but it is each individual's responsibility once they reach a certain age where mind automatically starts questioning and reasoning to seek truth and strengthen their beliefs. Attending interfaith meetings and participating in different activities encourages more tolerence and respect towards each other and also to get a chance to find out about other religions and their practices.

Religion has a very important role in our lives. It can not be confined to mosques, temples, churches etc. It needs to be practiced at all times. All religions tell the same basic and good principles to live our lives. Every one is born with this inner sense to differentiate between good and bad regardless of their faith, something we all know, and this has been told in Quran. Matters requiring specific knowledge and ruling have also been told in Quran to provide guidance to live our daily lives. Man made ruling can always be questioned and can be seen as biased where as if there is one from our creator through our holy Quran no one will deny that to end a dispute.
People in all faiths will turn to God at times of trouble or disasters. Why is God forgotten at other times when there is peace and prosperity.
Without God's mercy and following the teachings we will not make a success in this life and hereafter.

I came upon this piece from the Suni mystic Mevlana Rumi:
Many have been led astray by the Qur'an:
by clinging to that rope many have fallen into the well.
There is no fault in the rope, O perverse man,
for it was you who had no desire to reach the top.
III, 4210-11

without any prejudice,its actually true; Qur'an and all the Divine guidance, be it innate, revelation or via prophets' teachings- comes to guide us-it's upto us how much we take to success/or fall.

history of various nations is witness upon this fact. ps 2nd and 3rd surah of Qur'an re: jews and christians and then the present status of muslims since past many centuries.we all have been repeating the same mistakes
