Depending on where you live, you’re likely to know someone at school or in your community who is Muslim (belonging to the religion of Islam). This is particularly true if you live in an urban centre or a town city of any significant size.
HOW DO YOU DISCUSS GOD WITH A MUSLIM?
That’s a great question! Recently we told you about an app from Dare 2 Share that helps you to share your faith! It’s a pretty sick app, if you haven’t checked it out yet, get deets here.
This app has a section in it where it links to a resource that helps you to discuss your faith with people who have different beliefs about how they understand the world/life/God/existence (called ‘Worldview’ see our article here). It explores how to have conversation with 13 people, each with a different worldview/belief. It’s under the section called ‘How 2 Share’.
For each person/worldview you’re given a basic description, questions to get the conversation going, areas to admire, a summary of that person’s core beliefs and tips for how to share your faith with that person.
Here’s some highlights on how to engage a Muslim person in conversation about God.
Q to ask – Which parts of Islam do you wish people understood better?
Areas to Admire – belief in one true God and commitment to prayer.
Beliefs – believe that Jesus was one of Allah’s prophets. They reject the notion that Jesus is God. Even on a human level they believe that Mohammed was a greater man and prophet than Jesus.
Tips – be a friend, listen to them and get a feel for where they are coming from. Be hospitable, invite them to your home (or go to theirs) and eat together (though be sure to ask about any dietary restrictions beforehand)

Remember… you can’t argue someone to faith in Christ, but you can (and should) live such a Christlike life that those around you sense, see and experience something different and counter-cultural in you, which opens the door for you to explain the ‘evidence’.
