A CALL FOR SUNNI-SHIA DIALOG

A Call for Shia Sunni Dialog: Why and How, By Abdul Malik Mujahid,
Sound Vision source: news@soundvision.net

Monday December 25, 2006 will be the first national Shia-Sunni dialog
in America held in Chicago Insha Allah. You don't have to be an Imam or Muslim leader to attend. Just a Muslim horrified by thekilling, terror and violence...

I am calling for this dialog with words and a heavy heart. I have no funding for this project, nor anyone working with me at the moment. But I know many of you feel this way. Volunteers and donors will help push this move forward with the help of Allah. We cannot remain silent witnesses to these sinful deeds and crimes against humanity. ...

Please join this much-needed initiative. Call me at 708-430-1255 ext.
405 or email me at malik@soundvision.com and tell me that you plan to
come. Tell me that you are sick and tired of this bloodshed. Tell me that
you want to support this effort.

  • The principle of "no compulsion in matters of faith"
  • sit down and talk to each other
  • Dialog allows parties to understand
  • Dialog will isolate the extremist fringe
  • Revenge is not justice.
  • the Quran asks us to be just

    Salaams Mr Tahir
    Thanks for your poetic and humorous comments on ma blog.
    Thoroughly enjoyed by all.

    About your post:
    Its about time, something like this is imminent.
    Although people like us cant be there in person to show support and encourage but we hope and pray to Allah that something positive come out of it.
    May Allah guide us all.
    [2:256] There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever rejects Satan (and what he calls to) and believes in Allah, he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handhold, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.
