Letter to the Editor

Sumera Ahmed, Germany

Sir I am a regular reader of T h e Review of Religions. The work done is great. I was recently going through the speeches from the various guests at the Peace Symposium held at Baitul Futuh (Morden, UK) on 25 April. I was very happy that the Ahmadiyya Muslim community org a n i s e d such an event and invited people from different faiths. This is a good way to learn about other faiths and for them to learn from us. The problem is that Christians and people of other faiths do not know what Islam actually is. The only information they get is from the media about Islam. In most cases, it is the wrong description of Islam. Even in my school, I have come across some Christian teachers and fellow students who are not really aware of Islam. They try to give a wrong picture in front of others. It is difficult to explain to everyone what Islam actually is. Besides that we also lack know- ledge about other faiths like Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Budhism, Sikhism, etc. and this knowledge is nowadays essential for us since we live amongst Christians and people of other faiths. In my opinion, it is very important for us to have knowledge about other faiths as well as ours. For example, the article about Salahuddin Ayyubi (The Review of R e l i g i o n s September 2004) was very inspiring for me and would be for other younger people. So magazines like The Review of Religions are also very important for young people. They give you knowledge about matters that is hardly available in books nowadays. All I want to say is: keep up the good work and promote T h e Review of Religions also amongst younger people.
