Mezba commented on a post I had written and had included a link to his blog, “Teaching Kids the Holy Quran.” After I looked at his blog I knew I wanted to post a link. He creatively uses Legos to teach the Quran.
Here is a link to Surat Maryam, which tells of the birth of the Messiah. Many Christians don’t realize that Muslims also believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin. This is a good example of commonality between us. The second part of his Lego rendition of this Surah (chapter) of the Quran is a good example of one of our differences.
Let’s enthusiastically embrace our commonalities and never be afraid to make clear our differences. We don’t have to be offended when people make plain their disagreements with us, especially since we already knew we didn’t agree anyway!
