Transcript of Problems in A Multi-Faith Society

Views on Religion conversion Muslim Views-
Islam teaches that everyone is Muslim at birth, because every child that is born has a natural inclination to goodness and to worship the one true God alone, but his or her parents or society can cause him or her to deviate from the straight path. When someone accepts Islam he/she is considered to revert to his/her original condition. While conversion to Islam is among its most supported tenets, conversion from Islam to another religion is considered to be the sin of apostasy. According to the Hadith and in Arab countries it is subject to the penalty of death. In the Qu'ran however, there is no death penalty for apostasy.

Christian Views-
Conversion to Christianity is the religious conversion of a previously non-Christian person to some form of Christianity. It has been called the foundational experience of Christian life.[1] Conversion to Christianity primarily involves belief (faith) in God, repentance of sin, acknowledgment of falling far short of God's glory and holiness and confession of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the all-sufficient and only means by whom one's sin can be atoned for and therefore the only route to salvation. While conversion to Christianity may simply involve a personal choice to identify with Christianity rather than with another religion, many Christians understand it to mean that the individual attains eternal salvation by a genuine conversion experience or act—a "radical transformation of self." Bringing Up Children Muslims and christians have different views on religion conversion, how to bring up children and inter-faith marriage. In this presentation I will explore the different views. Problems in multi-faith Societys By Chloe Summer Walkden Muslim Views-
They believe that Children are easily influenced by their surroundings and that these days, it is extremely difficult to their children to an ideal Islamic environment given the influences from media, friends and even other members of the family. With television, radio, Internet and forms of media mostly touting un-Islamic values, it is up to parents and adults close to the children to set the correct example. muslim children should respect and look after their elders. Muslim parents teach them the importance of worshiping only Allah and therefore set an example for their children.

Christian Views-
All Christians believe families are important. Many Christians believe that the family is the best place for having, and raising children. They believe God intended the family to be a place where children can be raised in a loving and supportive environment. They also believe parents should raise their children to learn about, and believe in God. The love that family members show to each other, should show how much God loves everyone. Many Christians believe that parents play an important role in showing their children, and non-family members, how much God loves and cares for them. Inter-faith Marriage Muslim Views-
The Qur'an lays out clear guidelines for marriage. One of the main traits you should look for in a potential spouse is a similarity in religious outlook. For the sake of compatibility, and the upbringing of future children, it is most recommended for a Muslim to marry another Muslim. However, in some circumstances it is permissible for a Muslim to marry a non-Muslim for men, but is forbidden fora ~Muslim woman to marry anyone but a muslim man, as they believe that men as 'head of the household', the husband provides leadership for the family. A Muslim woman must not follow the leadership of someone who does not share her faith and values.

Christian Views-
Some churches may forbid interfaith marriage, drawing from 2 Corinthians 6:14, and in some cases Deuteronomy 7:3, depending on the interpretation of these scriptures. Such marriage is supported indirectly by part of the Pauline privilege, in 1 Corinthians 7:12–14, with the central sentence: "For the unbelieving husband is sanctified through his (believing) wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified through her believing husband."

There is a distinction between inter-denominational and interfaith marriages and some Christian sects may extend their own rules and practices to include other denominations as well.
