Mohammed arrived at Kuba after “The Flight”  on September 20, 622.

Although not my faith, it is important that we understand the beliefs of others.  This particular part of the Qur’an, the al-Nisa has a few themes in which we might find some commonalities expressed.  These themes are:

  • The unity of the human race including the mutual obligations that men and women hold toward one another;
  • Family life including marriage, inheritance and justice;
  • The rights of women;
  • Peace, war and hypocrites; and
  • A general discussion of the People of the Book including Jews, Christians and Muslims.
