“All People Are A Single Nation” – Prince Aly Khan on Islam’s Basic Teachings and its Closeness to the Ethic of the Christian Faith

A MUST READ PIECE FOR CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS ALIKE

“Given a right understanding of the foundations of Islam and Christianity, and the spiritual values which they have proclaimed, it should not prove very difficult to build a bridge of mutual respect and co-operation between the two great religions. Unfortunately, it is a fact that the close similarity between the two remains largely unknown to the West.”

One thought on ““All People Are A Single Nation” – Prince Aly Khan on Islam’s Basic Teachings and its Closeness to the Ethic of the Christian Faith

  1. A man of great vision — well ahead of his time! His narration of Muslim paradigm of tolerance, reverence, compassion, perseverance, freedom, and pluralism still rings true in our global world, and is the bench mark for peace and unity among the al-el-kitaab.
