Set aside differences in faith


Originally published in Cincinnati Enquirer 

This Sunday, Christians worldwide will celebrate Easter. Being an Ahmadi Muslim I will not be celebrating Easter. However, this does not mean that I won’t show my love for Jesus Christ. Islam teaches us to respect Christians and their right to celebrate. In fact, Islam teaches us to join them in the love of Jesus Christ.

While differences exist, what matters most is the love we have for the same person–Christ. If Muslims and Christians come together in harmony and love for the same God, then a peaceful world is not far from our reach.
