We strive to be a catalyst for creating an engaged and thoughtful community through educational programs, speakers, discussion groups, and fellowship and outreach programs.

The Jesus Fatwah: Love Your (Muslim) Neighbor as Yourself

In Arabic, the word “fatwah” simply means “opinion.” A religious or ethical fatwah provides a spiritually instructive opinion, usually given as the answer to a question about religious law. In that regard, Jesus was a master of the art. His opinions, revered by Christians and Muslims alike, remain among the most beautiful and powerful fatwahs ever issued. Jesus pronounced what is perhaps the most famous of his fatwahs when a lawyer asked him to name the greatest of all the commandments. Jesus said (quoting Deuteronomy in the Hebrew Scriptures), “To love the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength, and love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
