I ❤️ this picture of Pope John Paul II kissing the Qur’an at the Vatican in 1999. What was the meaning of the kiss? To show that love conquers everything. To foster world peace. To encourage interfaith solidarity. To extend the hand of friendship. May we be moved by the spirit.

Israel's demolition of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem is more than merely demolitions. It's more than the military occupation too. It's about a systematic & determined process of ETHNIC CLEANSING. It's a CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY. No doubt. And it must be treated as such.

“I speak as a person born in the Christian faith. It cannot be denied that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was a remarkable man. He has had a profound effect on humanity.” This comment was left on my YouTube page. Good to know there are kindred spirits in the 🌎. Humanity > religion.

The Qur'an (5:82) states: "... nearest to Muslims in faith are those who say, 'WE ARE CHRISTIANS.' That is because among them are priests/monks & because they are not arrogant." Powerful things come out of praying together, side by side. It starts w/ humility. Peace. Salam.

Jesus said: “I was a stranger & you invited me in.” The Torah reminded: “Don’t oppress a foreigner, you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners.” Prophet Muhammad advised: “Be generous w/ no strings attached.” ***Hospitality*** is central to our traditions. Open your ❤️.

A person asked Prophet Muhammad: “Who is most deserving of respect?” Muhammad said: “Your mother.” The person then asked: “Who next?” “Your mother,” Muhammad replied. Again, the person asked: “Who next?” Muhammad said: “Your mother.” Don’t tell me, “Islam oppresses women.”

Prophet Muhammad said: An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab; a white has no superiority over a black, nor does a black have any superiority over a white, except by piety/good action. This is more important than ever.

He was known for his humility. He fought against injustice. He loved the neglected in society. He lived a life of selflessness. A Christian may say, “This is Jesus.” A Muslim may say, “This is Muhammad.” What’s beautiful here is that the “he” could be either one of them.

“So you’re saying that Jesus is spoken of w/ reverence in the Qur’an?”, a Christian asks me. • He’s bolstered w/ the Holy Spirit (2:87) • He’s honored in this world/the next (3:46) • He’s a miracle worker (2:253) • He’s “the Word of God” (3:45) My answer = “Definitely.”

“Treat others how you want to be treated.” This is the ⭐️GOLDEN RULE⭐️, the very heart of the Islamic/Christian spirits. Prophet Muhammad said that nobody is a true believer if they don’t follow it. Jesus said “love your neighbors as yourself.” It’s the bedrock of humanity.

A woman used to throw rubbish at Prophet Muhammad whenever he passed by her house. He always walked by in silence, w/out anger. But one day, she wasn't there. The woman was sick in bed. Muhammad ends up visiting her/looking after her needs. We need this kind of ***compassion.***

Prophet Muhammad’s “Rules of War”: 1. Don’t kill women/children/babies 2. Don’t cut down trees 3. Don’t destroy holy places 4. Don’t mutilate bodies 5. Don’t mistreat prisoners 6. Don’t force people to convert 7. Don’t spoil gardens, etc. Don’t tell me “Muhammad was barbaric.”

I'm not a Muslim myself, but I have to say that I'm inspired by the anti-racism of Prophet Muhammad. He made it clear that a person is distinguished over another not by race, but rather by the quality of one's character/conduct. Video by .

On July 4th, 1187 CE, which later became the U.S.'s Independence Day, the Muslim king Salahuddin conquered Jerusalem. One of his first actions was granting Christians & Jews protection under his rule. It's a reminder: "Treat others how you wish to be treated." *The Golden Rule.*

The Qur'an explains that Jesus is "high honored in this & the next world." Muslims typically say "peace be upon him" every time they refer to him. Muhammad said of Jesus: "Whoever loves [him] & me receives a double blessing." Share these facts if you hear, "Muslims hate Jesus."

Prophet Muhammad promoted democratic/human rights including freedom of religion & racial equality 1,100 years before the creation of the U.S. Constitution. That’s the essence of “Islam in America: Exploring the Issues,” a first-of-its-kind reference book. Published in October ❤️.
