With the approach of Christmas and the celebration by Christians of the Story of the Nativity, Imam Qari Asim, CMF Trustee and Chair of the Mosques & Imams National Advisory Board, writes about how Muslims too venerate Jesus and Mary. Citing verses of their mention in the Qur’an, he emphasises the grounds for a deeper dialogue between Christians and Muslims.
As part of InterFaith Week 2021, we hosted a discussion on Friday 19 November on ‘Mary/Maryam: Gender and Piety in Catholic and Islamic Traditions’
This Inter Faith Week (14-21 November), CMF, with the support of the Church of England’s Presence and Engagement team, are working with partners from the Muslim Council of Britain, United Reformed Church, Salvation Army, Baptists Union and the Methodist Church to launch a second programme of Church-Mosque conversations.
CMF’s annual meeting with our Patron, Archbishop Justin Welby, took place online on Monday 27th September when we discussed ‘Evangelism and Daw’ah’.
