The King is Calm

Reflection delivered on December 28th, 2018

In this Friday reflection, Shaykh Amin bifurcates Islam and Christianity as having two very distinct theologies and directs the Muslims to treat them as such, as we engage in truthful and unapologetic dialogues within our predominantly Christian communities. This notion is exemplified by Jaʿfar ibn Abī Tālib’s رضي الله عنه timeless and glorious introduction of Islam as presented to the King of Abyssinia upon the nascent community’s arrival at the ‘land of freedom’.
