The Commission on Christian-Muslim Relations and The Muslim-Catholic Alliance will present the following series of Monday sessions on Islam and Christianity. Sessions will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Islamic Center, 727 Westfall Road, Brighton.
The sessions are:
* Feb. 21: “Faith and Worship in Islam,” which will address how Muslim beliefs affect Muslims’ daily lives.
* Feb. 28: “Muhammad and the Qur’an,” which will address what the message of Islam’s holy book is, and the way Prophet Muhammad delivered it.
* March 7: “Jihad and Extremism: Christianity and Islam,” which will address the word “jihad” or “striving.” Despite its current association with terrorism, jihad has both spiritual and political dimensions relevant to Islam and Christianity.
* March 14: “Violence and Terrorism: Christianity and Islam,” which will address both religions’ perspectives on violence and terrorism.
All sessions are free and open to the public.
