The Abrahamic Faiths – Thursday January 12th at 7:00 PM

  1. 285    The Messenger believes in what was sent down to him from his Lord, as do the believers. Each believes in God, His angels, His books, and His messengers. “We make no distinction between any of His messengers.” And they say, “We hear and obey. Thy forgiveness, our Lord! and unto Thee is the journey’s end.”
