An Inclusive Christmas

With the approach of Christmas this year, as the Christian Muslim Forum, we wanted to celebrate the way Christians and Muslims come together at this time of year and how traditions associated with the Christian festival have been adapted by other faith communities in this country.

We have produced a short booklet, An Inclusive Christmas, which can be found here.

An Inclusive Christmas Booklet

We hope it inspires new inter faith encounters and encourages deeper dialogue between Christians and Muslims during the festive season.

Merry Christmas

Discovering Sacred Texts

The British Library in London has launched a new online resource, Discovering Sacred Texts, featuring books and manuscripts from the Library’s collection as well as introductory videos and teaching resources.

Here are the videos on Christianity and Islam:

Explore the diverse ways in which five Christian denominations – Coptic Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Church of England, Methodist, and Pentecostal – worship in Britain today, and the texts that inspire them.

The film on Islam explores four of the five pillars of Islam – the Muslim profession of faith (shahada), prayer (salat), charity (zakat), and fasting during Ramadan (sawm) – and how Muslims in Britain follow them today.
