(Deutsch) Seit dem 29. März 2014 besitzt Krefeld den ersten „Wald des Dialogs“. Christen und Muslime pflanzten an diesem strahlenden Frühlingstag unter Anleitung der Mitarbeiter des Grünflächenamtes der Stadt Krefeld auf 5.000 qm im Naherholungsgebiet am Oppumer Busch rund 1.700 Bäume – gedacht als Zeugnis gemeinsamen gesellschaftlichen Engagements und als Symbol für die Zukunft.
The biblical concept of “grace” has many meanings which are hardly understood any longer outside of the Church. The term has been divested of its senses in modern English, and its modernday usage does not cover the multifaceted meanings of the biblical term. However, grace is a fundamental biblical concept which distinguishes the Christian faith from all other religions.Is the Qur’an and Islam familiar with the concept God’s “grace” at all? What are the similarities and differences between the Bible and the Qur’an? What points of contact can be used to convey the biblical message to Muslims?
Whoever reads the Koran from beginning to end will realize that much is said about the “prophets”. They play a key role in the concept of revelation in the Koran – and, of course, for Muhammad and his preaching. The Koran, like the Bible, depicts prophets as mortal humans; however, they have a much more significant role for revelation in the Koran than in the Bible. This is true particularly for Muhammad.
