A Christian-Muslim call to worship

Of God’s Unity, God says in the Holy Qur’an:
​      Say: He is God, the One! God, the Self-Sufficient
           Besought of all! So invoke the Name of thy Lord
           and devote thyself to Him with a complete devotion.

Of the necessity of love for the neighbor, the Prophet
Muhammad—peace and blessings be upon him—said:
     “None of you has faith until you love for your
     neighbor what you love for yourself.”

Jesus said:
     “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is One;
     you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
     and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and
     with all your strength.”
