Islamic Scholars Tackle Papal Debacle
October 16, 2006 § 3 Comments
Please allow me to suggest and highly recommend a reading. Thabet of Under|Progress has recently posted a link to a letter written by the premier Islamic scholars from all 8 schools of jurisprudence in response to Pope Benedict’s controversial statements where he cited the medieval Emperor, Emanuel II Paleolegus from a debate with an “educated Persian”. The letter addresses such issues as “reason and faith”; “forced conversions”; “jihad vs. holy war” and the relationship between Islam and Christianity.
