In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) July 25, 2005.

The Fiqh, Jurisprudence, Council of North America (FCNA) wishes to address the issue of terrorism and how it is viewed in the Islamic legal and ethical system

Islamic law has consistently condemned terrorism and extremism in all forms and under all circumstances, and we reiterate this unequivocal position. Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives.

Islam stands clear on issues of Violence against women: No beating of wives and no abuse of women

This statement is declares that domestic violence has no room in Islam what so ever. First of all, it should be clear that the institution of the family in Islam is based on mutual respect, affection, mercy and love. Any form of physical or emotional abuse is prohibited. A husband is not allowed to physically or emotionally harm his wife, and the wife is not allowed to abuse her husband.

If one were to believe morning news and the pictures of the recent events in the Middle East, one would have to conclude that we are at the dawn of a clash of religions and civilizations....

Jews, Muslims and Peace, Yehezkel Landau and Yahya Hendi, WORLD COUNCIL OF CHURCHES: CURRENT DIALOGUE Issue 41, July 2003

With ongoing violence sapping the spirits of Israelis and Palestinians, and with the Iraq war generating shock waves throughout the Middle East, we call on our fellow Jews and Muslims to join forces with concerned Christians to transcend this cycle of death and destruction. Jews and Muslims should be spiritual allies, not adversaries...

  GLF 2010 will feature an honest conversation between Muslims and Evangelicals about their shared values and unique perspectives on mission and partnership. The forum seeks to equip participants with a practical understanding of each faith tradition. It will feature four sessions.

The first session will explore concepts of faith and identity in each tradition, allowing panelists an opportunity to define themselves and describe how their respective identities determine how they live out their faiths. The second features a comparison of the Evangelical and Muslim understandings of mission and dawa, with special consideration for the contrasting beliefs on the meaning of “pluralism” when engaging in evangelizing and proselytizing. The third session will discuss practical approaches for Evangelicals and Muslims to partner with one another, offering real world examples for how to work together despite deep theological differences. In the fourth and final session, we will explore how Muslims and Christians can serve as partners towards reconciliation and conflict transformation.

In the end, we hope this conference will offer participants new perspectives about the potential for Muslim and Christian partnership, and will equip listeners of different faiths with practical tools for engaging in meaningful alliances with one another.

ANNE WILSON SCHAEF: Differences challenge assumptions

JEROME NATHANSON: The price of the democratic way of life is a growing appreciation of people's differences, not merely as tolerable, but as the essence of a rich and rewarding human experience.

JIMMY CARTER: We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams.

JOHN F. KENNEDY: If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.

JOHN F. KENNEDY: The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.

BLAISE PASCAL: Do you wish people to think well of you? Don't speak well of yourself.

CONFUCIUS: Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.
