Communications Coordinator Speaks at Symposium Titled 'Justice in Evangelical Christian and Islamic Thought'



CAIR-Chicago Communications Coordinator Sultan Muhammad participated in a three-day symposium titled 'Justice in Evangelical Christian and Islamic Thought,' and addressed the attendees on Friday, November 3rd at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers.

Muhammad sat on a panel with Dr. Tim Dearborn of World Vision International and Dr. Abdullah T. Antepli of the Hartford Seminary Foundation. Participants from Europe, North America and the Middle East comprised a diverse group of Evangelical Christian theologians, thinkers and educators as well as Muslim scholars and leaders.

The event, sponsored by WICS (World Islamic Call Society), coordinated by Dr. Mahmoud M. Ayoub, Professor of Islamic Studies and Comparative Religion at Temple University and Dr. Donald E. Wagner, Professor for the Center of Middle Eastern Studies at North Park University, proved to be a catalyst for mutual understanding and dialogue between the two faiths despite current political tensions. The organizers, Dr. Ayoub and Dr. Wagner, stated of Muhammad's participation, "the issues [he] raised" were "important ingredients in the dynamics of the conference."

Sultan Muhammad addressed the attendees during the third session, which highlighted the 'responsibility for the poor and under-privileged in the two communities.' Muhammad stated, "It was an honor to have been a part of such a historical event leading the way in Evangelical and Muslim dialogue."

Sultan Muhammad expressed that "exponents of sociology would hold that all theological and philosophical ideas have a political and social reference," and therefore, a "philosophy or theology of liberation is integral to the individual transformative process necessary to achieve social justice."
