The Chabad Jewish Center in my hometown of Needham, Massachusetts went up in flames in what is likely an act of arson. An attack on a fellow Needhamite is an attack on all. What a senseless act of violence & hatred. Despicable & cowardly. Enough is enough.

Approach Prophet Muhammad's life & legacy in an honest/objective/open-minded way & you will find that he can teach ***all of us*** - Atheists, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, everyone - critical lessons on how to overcome arrogance, greed, ignorance, injustice, & racism.

Greetings of peace everyone, I’m in the early stages of writing a proposal for my forthcoming book on Prophet Muhammad’s relations w/ Christians in a historical & modern context. Any ideas? Please provide suggestions. I’d be very grateful. I hope the book is published in 2021 🙏🏻.

The Nakba, or "Catastrophe," started 71 years ago, but it continues to this day. Watch Omar Harami, a Palestinian Christian, discuss the apartheid conditions in his home of East Jerusalem. Omar is looking for a peaceful resolution to this crime against humanity. God speed, Omar.

Today is Nakba Day, “the Day of Catastrophe,” which marks the ethnic cleansing of over 750,000 Palestinians in 1948. I pray that the Palestinians have a dignified future in their homeland. The international community must block settler colonialism. It’s time for actual justice.

Meet Khalil, a Palestinian Christian who provides water & dates to Muslims as they break the fast during Ramadan. He's done so for the last 7 years. Asked why he volunteers, Khalil said: "Because we are in the land of peace & from here, the message of peace begins." I love it.

This video by the is a welcome relief. Sharia isn't what many people think it is. Sharia is "about finding the path to God & about making this world an abode of justice," as Andrew March notes. Don't let the haters convince you otherwise.

Ramadan brings out the very best of humanity. Watch Palestinian Christians distribute dates & bottles of water to Muslims to break the fast during Ramadan. The haters have it wrong - Christians are ready to help Muslims & vice versa. Love & mutual respect.

Here's a reminder that small acts of kindness go a long way. A Muslim guest at Ibis hotel in Dublin asked the hotel staff for a snack before he began his Ramadan fast. When he went downstairs, the staff had laid out a full buffet for him. Humanity is alive.

Grand Mufti Osman Sharubutu will restore your faith in humanity. To ensure that his legacy is peace & interfaith harmony, he attended a Catholic Church service in Accra on Easter 2019. What a bright light of hope & love in a world that certainly needs both.

I love these kind of stories because they highlight the interconnectedness of our civilizations. Did you know that Muslims ruled Sicily (Italy) in the 9th & 10th centuries? Have you visited Palermo to see the Qur'anic inscriptions on the Palermo Cathedral?

Basic humanity is under assault. 6 Catholics, including a priest, were murdered during mass in the village of Dablo, Burkina Faso. The attackers also torched the church to the ground. Another day, another attack on a place of worship. May the martyrs RIP.

Happy Mother’s Day to my Ma, Debbie Marie Considine (née Tedesco). She’s absolutely beloved for many reasons. Loving, outgoing, comforting, fun, smart, & not to mention an amazing cook. True unconditional love forever. Wish I could be with you today in Boston. Love you Ma! ❤️

A man asked Prophet Muhammad, "Who among us is the most worthy of my good companionship?" Muhammad replied: "Your mother." The man then asked, "Then who?" Muhammad once again answered: "Then your mother." What a beautiful teaching. A video from three years ago.

My faith in humanity is restored. Meet Imam Abdullahi Abubakar, an 84 year-old peacemaker who saved over 300 Christians from a Nigerian militia by hiding women in his home & men in his mosque. Extraordinary. This is what a hero looks like. Full interview:

A man once asked Prophet Muhammad the question: "What is religion?" He answered: "Religion is good moral conduct." Beyond our narrow definitions of identity, we've a simple message: "treat others how you wish to be treated." This is a profound teaching that resonates w/ me.

This is humanity at its best. Watch this Christian community in Leeds (UK) open the door of its church for Muslims looking to pray. Being helpful to neighbors in need is loving & strengthens communal bonds. Let’s learn to live together. We will find peace.

This powerful picture of a Palestinian man climbing over Israel’s wall to go pray during Ramadan reminds me of Pope Francis’s recent trip to Morocco during which he said: “Those that build walls end up being prisoners of the walls that they have built.” Photo: Mohamad Torokman

Imam Omar Suleiman () is a man of genuine integrity. He loves to serves humanity. He always condemns injustice no matter the type. The smear campaign against him is shameless. I stand firmly w/ Omar. Get to know him in this beautiful video on solidarity & unity.
