    I am part of a Muslim community which is very very accepting and tolerant of interfaith relationships (Islam for them is the act of bringing peace to one's life through a relationship with the Divine and surrendering to God. They are Muslim, but recognize like Sikhs that there are many paths to the One). They are more liberal than most liberals even. :) They are Muslim and practice Islam and all of it is expressed in deep compassion and kindness.

    Around them, even a non-muslim can use the phrase which is said reverently after mentioning prophets. It is peace be upon him. I also use it reverently when I mention Mother Mary, Eve and Anna (Mary's mother) because I feel God's relationship with them was also a deeply prophetic message.

    It got me wondering how Muslims here feel about non-Muslims using that term? I would assume it would not be a problem among Muslims, but I only know liberals so I'm wondering how it would be perceived by moderate, mainstream and conservative Muslims.

    I'll finish my post with a song by Ani Zonneveld who is a Muslim. The song is an interfaith expression of Love in God, imho. mundahug

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
