Understanding between people of different faiths all over the world
Surely it's possible?

A request to the people of the world

I would like to pray for Universal Peace, Understanding and brotherhood. As a Western Sufi, I believe that all faiths have parts of the truth within them, and all are beautiful in their own way. I think that so much hatred and violence and pain could be avoided if people just understood each other better. So I am asking you, anyone and everyone, to pray to your own God in the manner of another religion, for example, a Christian to pray to The Lord five times a day, using perhaps the word Allah (in churches in Syria they do, it's just a name for the unameable) just for one day, to see how it feels, or a Muslim to pray to one of the 99 names of Allah and concentrate just on that part of Allah, so that you can maybe begin to understand what a Hindu feels like when praying to a particular God or Godess. I am not asking you to change religion, just to accept that religions way of reaching their God, and using it to reach your God. Understanding is the beginning of acceptance.
