Pushing the Rabbi, Pastor and the Imam


Pushing Rabbi, Pastor and Imam to the tell the us about co-existence from the scriptures.

Religion is all about building cohesive societies, most people get that right and a few don't, those who don't get their religion right make God a villain of others.

Pushing Rabbi, Pastor and an Imam on challenges in promoting co-existence

Washington, D.C., September 13, 2016 - The American Muslim Institution will have a Rabbi, Pastor and an Imam on one platform in a dialogue to offer pragmatic solutions on the co-existence of humanity, focused on the practitioners of these faiths in Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia.

In the Symposium scheduled for Sunday, September 18, 2016 at the Marriott Fairview in Falls Church, Virginia at 2:00 PM, three holy books will be placed on the table symbolically acknowledging God's wisdom in building cohesive societies where no human has to live in tension, apprehension or fear of the other.

Everything you always wanted to know about what the real scriptures say, and what is preached and practiced is what you will hear. This will be one of the most productive meetings you have ever attended, so make sure you RSVP and bring your friends.

Here are statements from each one of the participants and the President AMI.

Rabbi Charles M. Feinberg said, “Each of the Scriptures of the Abrahamic faiths has passages which I would consider problematic and offensive. It is the responsibility of religious leaders to interpret these passages in a way that promotes justice and peace.”

Imam Mohamad Bashar Arafat said, “The political situation today, nationally and internationally, is making it more difficult for the voices of reason and wisdom to be heard. The word of God has been and will continue to be our refuge in Him from the temptation of our desires and the misunderstanding of our interpretations."

Ambassador Islam Siddiqui, President of AMI said, “ We firmly believe in an America in which all religious and ethnic communities contribute to her success while living in peace and harmony, free from prejudice and discrimination."

AMI is committed to be a proactive voice for American Muslims, and our actions, writings and talks are geared to achieve the ultimate goal, where "Americans will see Muslims as their neighbors and fellow citizens, committed to fighting against violent extremism and protecting the homeland.”

If we can learn to respect the otherness of others and accept the God-given uniqueness of each one of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.

Venue: Marriott Fairview, 3111 Fairview Park Dr, Falls Church, VA 22042
Time: Sunday, 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM - Doors open at 1:40 PM
