There is Christian encounter program at our school and they want us to write problems bothering us on paper and sow a seed in our education by adding something small of our problems to an envelope for encounter with God. All my difficulties are related to difficulties in learning.

I want to know if I can be a participant?

  • Some details and elaboration would be helpful (see How to Ask).

Walaykum Assalam dear brother.

I am not exactly sure as to what the activity is, please be more clear on that matter. From my understanding they want you to put your troubles on a paper and that God will help with the difficulty or give advice

When they say 'encounter with God', it depends on what type of christian they are. They may be referring to Prophet Isa(pbuh) or Allah(SWT). It depends on who they are referring to here.

If they are referring to Prophet Isa (pbuh), then it may be taken as shirk as you are indirectly referring to Isa as God.

If it is talking about Allah(SWT), then it is up to you, i personally don't recommend it though just to make sure.

I recently had a dilemma where the novel i was writing could be taken as shirk as the history of the fiction's world didnt come from Allah, but since i didnt believe in it myself nor did my fans or readers, i kept writing while keeping the role of that to the absolute minimum and i try to avoid writing another work with a similar situation just to make sure.

Here, the christians are most probably talking about Isa helping you with your troubles, but the easiest way you can do this is to pray to Allah for guidance on the matter. This is a much safer and easier way.

I am new to this forum, and i'm no scholar nor very knowledgable of Islam, but i try my best to help others live their lives to their fullest while also following their obligations.

May Allah guide you.

  • I really appreciate a lot for answering my question and am very glad too. Thank you.

  • @AbdulRauf, like blocktrocks101, I don't understand the exact problem. I just to inform that muslim cannot imitate nor cooperate non-muslim in dua (praying). It is better to go away from their worship place since it is the place of Allah's wrath.
