An Open Letter from the Muslim Community to the Christian Religion in an Effort to Forge Inter Faith Dialogue[edit]

On October 13th 2007, Muslims sent their interfaith message In"A Common Word Between Us and You", an open letter from leaders of the Islamic religion to those of the Christian religion. 138 Muslim scholars, clerics and intellectuals from various countries in different continents unanimously came together for the first time since the days of the Prophet[s] to declare the common ground between Christianity and Islam. In 2008 the initiative was awarded the "Eugen Biser Award", and the "Building Bridges Award", from the UK's Association of Muslim Social Scientist. Since the launch of A Common Word, hundreds of Muslim and Christian scholars, leaders and intellectuals have approved and commented on the initiative; including H.H. the Pope and many grand muftis.
