MUSLIMS and Christians came together in Rose Hill to find out more about the respective religions and promote peace.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community invited the Cowley Team Ministry and their friends to the interfaith event entitled Peace – Need of the Time.

The two groups met at Rose Hill Community Centre in Carole’s Way, Oxford, on February 11, with guest speaker Revd Canon Dr Geoff Bayliss enthusing the audience with a message of peace.

He spoke about the healing of a broken world, when peace will rule and the coming of the Kingdom of Heaven to earth when people will leave in peace and harmony.

About 80 people listened to the talk, which was followed by a speech from Dr Zahid Khan from Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

Dr Khan focussed his speech on building friendship despite differences and the importance of mutual respect and understanding.

He referred to the historic incident when a delegation of 60 Christians were welcomed to pray in the Prophet Muhammad’s mosque in Medina and emphasised the Holy Prophet’s display of tolerance.

Dr Khan underscored the need to exercise justice in order to establish peace.

A question and answer session at the end allowed members of the audience to quiz both speakers, who provided answers from the viewpoint of their respective faiths.

The event ended with silent prayer and then dinner.
