Scriptural Links Between Judaism, Christianity and Islam
Abdal Hakim Murad looks at Islam as part of a wider family of faiths and analyzes what it shares and what it doesn't share with its two great predecessors. This comparison is made on several fronts namely salvation history, Islamic law vs. Jewish law, scriptural overlap between the Hebrew Bible and the Qur'an, the figures of Jesus (P) and the Virgin Mary (P), and Muslim-Christian interaction throughout history. This lecture is part of a series which is great for both Muslims and non-Muslims as Abdal Hakim approaches the subject from a highly intellectual perspective. (Recorded at the Dar al Islam Teachers' Institute seminar). Other topics discussed: God's covenant, the "chosen" people, prophecy, ancient Christian antisemitism, the Kaaba, and circumcision.
