I recently conducted an interview with Dr. John Andrew Morrow, scholar of Islam and author of the book The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World. This interview was a follow-up to my review of his book, which you can read at “New Book Sheds Light on Prophet Muhammad’s Interfaith Views.” The passage below is the answer he provided to my question: “If you could give one piece of advice to Christians and Muslims worldwide, what would that be?” The full interview is here: “John Andrew Morrow’s Spiritual Journey into Islam and the Life of Prophet Muhammad.”
“Christians need to understand that Islam is not the enemy. Muslims need to understand that Christianity is not the enemy. The enemy of one religion is the enemy of all religions. What we are facing in the world today is a confrontation between Secularism and Religion, between Materialism and Spirituality, between the worship of Mammon and the worship of the Creator, between those who believe in this world and those who believe in the next world. By turning religions against one another, the power elites accomplish two objectives at the same time: to make money and to destroy any future possibility of opposition. As one would expect, the enemies of God cloak their cause in religion. Most so-called Christian and Muslim militants are unwittingly advancing the agenda of atheism. Surely, the prophets are brothers to one another. Moses, Jesus and Muhammad all followed in the footsteps of Abraham. The true believers among the Jews, Christians and Muslims must unite, as followers of Abraham, in order to fight their common enemies. Those who divide us seek to destroy us. The believers in Divine Unity must unite.”
