Meal With A Muslim Day 2011 – September 16
Posted by spritzophrenia on August 29, 2011
Last year we celebrated the first international Meal with a Muslim Day. Won’t you join us this year?
Have a meal, or coffee.
Initiate dialogues, not hate.
If you’re a Muslim, find a non-Muslim. If you’re a non-Muslim, find a Muslim.
Spread the word, and invite him or her out for some coffee or a bite to eat and a chat (breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a quick coffee) on September 16th. If that date isn’t convenient, another day is fine. Ramadan has finished by then. Some Muslims may choose to invite their neighbours early, for Iftar. Iftar is the breaking of the fast during Ramadan.
Tell him or her that you’re doing it for the second international Meal with a Muslim Day— a day designed to open up human conversations between Muslim and non-Muslim neighbors.
The rules: eat and drink what you want and talk about what you want. If you feel comfortable, ask each other some of the ‘hard’ questions and listen respectfully to what they say.
Yes, I know it’s late notice. I had good intentions of publicising it early this year and it crept up on me. Nevertheless, you’ll be surprised at who you can find if you ask around. I managed to find someone at the last minute. Here’s the story of My Meal With a Muslim last year.
Watch the video below where Santi (non-Muslim) and Josef (Muslim) explain their reasons behind this idea. (A positive response to that “burn a Qu’ran” pastor.)
