How A Christian Community Reacts When Muslims MOVES NEXT DOOR?

– [Voiceover] I’ll
never forget the morning that I saw an article about a group of Muslims who had
bought 30 acres and were planning to build a complex. When I saw that, my stomach
kind of tightened up. They were gonna be right
across the street from us. I felt that, that ignorance
and that fear so I prayed. Said well what are we supposed to do? – [Voiceover] The idea
of Memphis Islamic Center started because we felt we
needed a family life center, a place for people to pray and play, to socialize and have
a sense of community. It is a difficult time
for Muslims in America. We did not expect to be welcome, we thought we’d have to work hard. One day we were driving
by and we see a banner and that banner says: – [Voiceover] Heartsong
Church welcomes the Memphis Islamic Center to the neighborhood. – [Voiceover] Me and my
wife both were thinking about leaving the church because I just did not accept what was going on. I went to Pastor Steve and asked him, I said what are we doing? He told me to read the Gospels. When I read through those
Gospels and I figured out I was the problem. What was going on with the
world today, I was the problem. (sniffling) – [Voiceover] And then
we started building. In the month of fasting,
the month of Ramadan was supposed to be our grand
opening day where we start praying here and it was
clear that we were not gonna have our hall ready. – [Voiceover] We got
a call and Bashar said we just wondered if we
could use your building for our prayers. – [Voiceover] In case we
don’t get our permit in time. Instead of using the
room for a few nights, we ended up spending the
entire month of Ramadan at Heartsong Church. Ramadan brought us much closer. People started knowing each
other on a personal level. – [Voiceover] We had done
coat drives and food drives and close to 9/11 we do
a blood drive together. I would’ve never thought
that I would be friends with Muslims and I love it. It’s kind of like my world got bigger. – [Voiceover] We are a
better congregation now. We are better people
because of this friendship with Heartsong. – [Voiceover] It’s an
amazing friendship that I can’t imagine having missed out on. – [Voiceover] How’s everybody doing today? Cheer louder if you’re having fun. (crowd cheers) (laughter) (musical tones)

  1. Maybe Muslims will see how lovely true Christians are.on a personal level …..and visa versa for the Muslims.

    One thing that I am frightened of though is that the Christians don't understand the Islamic religion. Muslims , (if they are honest admit) they have been trained to distrust the infidel, the kaffir and the dimmie which are names they call everyone but themselves. Yet, they go crazy if someone fears them. Islamophobia.

    On an individual level most people from places in the middle east can be wonderful. The women are wonderful cooks and generous and kind . The good Muslim man is also as generous as men come.

    I know that Muslim teens of the opposite sex are very attracted to each other and if they should marry they will really enrich the American gene pool.

    However, this Memphis church is seeing cherry picking Muslims. They are the best….because they follow the nice/nice parts of their books. But those same books and the prophet they worship is the exact same one that ISIS does except ISIS follows Islam to the letter. The truth…no cherry picking is allowed….

    I have found the majority of Muslims have never read their own books and learned it from some Mullah, Iman or their community. When I have shown my Syrian students passages which ISIS follows they are stunned.

    Maybe the Muslim men and women might want to raise their daughters the way the Christians do….real authentic Christian men don't beat their wives or marry four of them. It is possible that something could rub off in better treatment of the girls.

    Does this Christian church know that the women are not allowed to marry anyone but a Muslim….and they prefer to live in segregated communities and not interact with infidels or the people of the "book" Jews and Christians.

    Many of them want to see Sharia law instead of the Constitution. Does the church know which ones? Muhammad allowed taqiyya and deception against anyone who is not Muslim. Even then look what ISIS did to fellow Muslims in the name of Allah. Bomb and kill all the infidels and receive 72 big breasted virgins in Paradise. How primitive to believe the earth is flat and the sun sets in a pool of muddy water every day. Most Muslims who say they are peaceful are horrified when people bring this up yet Muhammad said nothing in the texts is ever to be changed.

    It will be interesting to see if this relationship lasts after the Muslims get a foothold in the community. I really, really, really, hope so. What an example of true faith in the sight of God if something good happens.

    I don't want the Christians to be naive…Many Muslims say that God and Allah are the same….( do Christians agree?) They will try to co-mingle the two . Muslims also say that Muhammad rescued Jesus, and he never died on the cross. They also say that the trinity is a sham…the whole concept of the Christian religion is a lie and a sham…….

  2. It is now April 2019 and this video was made in 2016….can we have a follow up on how things are going… it still working out well……?????

  3. I'm a Muslim born and raised in Saudi Arabia and I see how Americans r welcoming and loving their Muslim neighbours and my eyes fill with tears. Arabs in Saudi r the most bigots and xenophobic ppl I've ever met. I love seeing ppl coming together like this it warms my heart.

  4. Hey does anyone know why You tube cuts off comments at a certain length and you lose the content of the comment?

  5. Islam is cancer that will strike one day ..Wake up people ..Oh say that to 300 christian who died on easter sunday Because Islam.. In France 3 christian church are attacked everyday Because Islam

  6. This is just Muslims pretending to be good. Once they have reached a majority they will do everything against you . here is an instance look what they have done to Britain in the name of peace and brotherhood, in this video they are taking advantage of Americans being kind to them.

  7. David wood asks,Christian prince questions about islam in this youtube video
    – please watch it and see how easily islam.can be proven false

  8. You better open your eyes Christians. See what happened in Europe? Those muslims destroyed the entire Europe. Burning Christian church killing Christians . Muslim are not Christians and jews Friends dont be distracted by stupid leftists. Islam= cancer.

  9. never trust any muslim you be sorry take over is part of the koran/quran/kolran, see the news muslims kill all non muslims.

  10. Memphis😳? this a dream.
    Memphis all the way to georgia.that area i whent trough 100 times.i always pick my load up and back to the road…
    That place always give me a bad vide/energy..
    And to see this happen particularly that area.totaly miracle.i pray for more bpessing to yall.

    Always got to make your move in to find it in your own.
    Never take words from your own../stranger or even familly.
    Better figure it out to your self.

  11. Let me tell you something if you're a Christian and you trust some of them you're stupid as I can throw you. You're asking for them to kill you you're asking for them to rape you you're asking them to her children. Muslims cannot be trusted periods the pattern of the negative evil Behavior proves it.


  13. "Its like my world got bigger", how much i loved what he said! I love u, people! You two r making the peace-seekers' work easier. Thank u!

  14. Difficult time for muslis in America? You meant difficult time for America having muslis in house.

  15. we must all unite and stay as a one family regardless of race, color and religion. I will assure there will be no more wars. Why don't we open up and hug each other? we all walk on two legs. we all have two eyes. we all have one heart. Make peace and say no to war. Spread love…….Peace be upon you all.

  16. We are the major religions of the world if we come together like this 80 percent of problems will be solved.

  17. Muslims and christians along with many other religions all have one fault in common. they sit here and try and denounce all religions saying this is right this is wrong. i am muslim myself and my brother and sisters. jus let any man or women be that denounces islam in the comment selection. let them have their truths and faith and let us have ours. of course spread love and knowledge but encountering ignorant arrogant folks it’s almost futile to even preach abt islam. muslims who argue with arrogant folk jus let it go. believe in islam but don’t sit here trying to prove all these other religions wrong. at the end of the day it doesn’t matter. your jus creating conflicts. be peaceful and jus let it be.

  18. Beautiful video and thank you Memphis community, stay together and please do not fall into the traps of those who divide communities on name of faith. Peace to all of you.

  19. Afghanistan was once Buddhist, Lebanon was once Christian and Iran was once Zoroastrian. Memphis will become Muslim. Allah is pleased.

  20. i love everybody i love all people atheists or jews or christians or muslims or catholic we are all human beings we are not enemies i am a muslim


  22. This is how the world should work. Love is the basis of these religions and these people respected that.


  24. This is what true Islam and true Christianity looks like. Respect, love for your fellow human being. The Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) made it especially clear to honor and protect the people of the book, i.e Jews and Christians and to love for your fellow man. This gives me a new outlook on life. Thank you for posting this great message.

  25. The sad part about these comments is that so.e ignirant or lying pis muslime challemges people to point out any cerse in the quran or hadfiths that say to kill unbelievers or monbeluevers and eventually someone(like me does) and the muslime pos disapears from the comments or even worse-tries to say its wrong ir out of context.

    The only thing westerners really need to rwad regarding muslimes is WINDAGE,RANGE,ELEVATION

  26. They fear in the beginng because they don't know biblical history andbthe connectuon they have to one another. Religion as it is today a damned joke.
    A building does not define a person's faith – it's a building. Where is God and his teachings? It aint in wood and glass. Ugh!

  27. As a Muslim women am so proud to see the Christians and Muslims living together and corporate together and support each other
    How nice when we respect other beliefs
    How nice when we accept others
    Either is black or white or yellow
    Either is believing in god or not
    First what our Islam religion said we have to respect the human being first
    And accepte them ,do not judge them because they don’t believe on what you believe
    The video is very touchable am so proud that am Muslim and my best friend , she is Christian from Bulgaria
    We work together we eat together and she greeting me on my celebrating Muslims Eid or during Ramadan
    And I do some
    Our friendship complete now 11years

  28. "I was the problem". Mashallah, it takes a lot of courage and strength to be able to admit something like that.

  29. Native Brits move from an area when they find the number of Muslim families are on the increase. They also remove their children from a school when they find that the number of Muslim children are in majority. There are hundreds of schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies run by Muslim Boards of Governors. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

    British schooling and the British society is the home of institutional racism. The result is that Muslim children are unable to develop self-confidence and self-esteem, therefore, majority of them leaves schools with low grades. Racism is deeply rooted in British society. British schools are not doing enough to tackle racism and promote race relations. Many teachers are unaware of racist attitudes amongst pupils. Schools have a responsibility not only to deal with racist incidents but also to prepare pupils for life in a multicultural and multiracial society. At least one racist incident is reported daily in Bolton schools, according to stats obtained from Bolton Council by Manchurian Matters. Bolton Council of Mosques Manager, Ibrahim Kala, said the data is only the “tip of the iceberg” and that Islamophobia makes up a large portion of the reported incidents. Stats obtained through the Freedom of Information request show 2,397 cases of racism in Bolton schools in the years from 2004 to 2013, meaning on average there are 1.26 racist incidents occur daily – and these are only the ones being reported.

    There are 188 Muslim schools and none of such schools have even a non-Muslim child. Non-Muslim parents would never let their children attend Muslim schools.

    The " Trojan Horse" schools were in a mess because such schools have non-Muslim teachers as well as head teachers and governors.

    You better teach your children in your own schools and let migrant communities teach their children according to their needs and demands. British Establishment and society should concentrate on the evils of their own society and stop trying to change the way of life of Muslims. Muslim community does not want to integrate with the British society, indulging in incivility, anti-social behaviour, drug and knife culture, binge drinking, teenage

    pregnancies and abortion. Prince Charles, while visiting the first grant maintained Muslim school in north London, said that the pupils would be the future ambassadors of Islam. But what about thousands of others, who attend state schools deemed to be "sink schools"? In education, there should be a choice and at present it is denied to the Muslim community. In the late 80s and early 90s, when I floated the idea of Muslim community schools, I was declared a "school hijacker" by an editorial in the Newham Recorder newspaper in east London. This clearly shows that the British media does not believe in choice and diversity in the field of education and has no respect for those who are different. Muslim schools, in spite of meager resources, have excelled to a further extent this year, with couple of schools achieving 100% A-C grades for five or more GCSEs.

    There are hundreds of state primary and secondary schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. This mean the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islam’s teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society.

  30. Dont be misled by their taqia. They are commanded by their deity to decieve their enemies till they attain critical mass.

  31. ONLY A LIBERAL MINDED FOOL!!!!! CANT THINK WE CAN LIVE together IT JUST WILL NOT WORK ITS HAS DESTROYED SWEEDEN AND THE UK AND IT IS DESTROYING CANADA BUT THANKS TO THE IDIOT GOOFY TRUDO THE KING OF LIBERALS THINKS IT WILL WORK😈 you are in a dream world to lap this video and think we can live together peacefully it has not worked for over 2000 years and is not working now it's sad but the truth hurts

  32. Be honest. How would a Muslim country react if a Christian church were to propose opening a church across from a Mosque?. You know the answer. It's obvious the Muslims are going to be happy opening mosques in affluent countries wherever they please.

  33. It is sad and hilarious to see how naive western christians are about political islam. Westerners project their views on to islam and assume that islam must be coming from the same viewpoint/motives… WRONG. Read the Quran, Sirah,Hadith- which IS ISLAM. Muslims CANNOT live side by side 'Kafirs' -which are unbelievers(Taqiya-except when they are outnumbered). I don't care what your so-called 'muslim' who hasn't ever read a quran is telling you(Or the internet muslim apologist). If you really want to be a christian, how about getting these brainwashed people away from Islam because I assure you, the Quran,Sirah,Hadith, Muhammed, Allah are all very clear about how they feel about unbelievers.
    Although I will say, ex-muslims make great christians because they speak out about this deadly deception that westerners are all to eager to gobble up-hook included.
