A Conversation between Musa and John

Musa:
I know you have love for me,
and you want us to be together

John:
I also know you live a life of peace
and you want me to have that peace as well

Musa:
But can you really love me the way you love yourself like you said?

John:
Why not?
Didn’t Jesus die for us because he loved us?

Musa:
Please John, if you want me to love you
the way you say you love me,
you will have to keep that Jesus of yours to yourself
because it is Mohammed I know, the holy prophet of Allah whom I love

John:
If that pleases you, Musa.
But if you want us to enjoy peace together as well,
You will also have to keep your Mohammed to yourself
Because I am at peace with Jesus, the only son of God, Jehovah

Musa:
But you must know, John That there is no true peace
without Islam

John:
And you must know too, Musa
That there is no true love without Christainity

Musa:
(laughs) that cannot be true, John.
Think about it:
Of what use is love without peace?
Of what use is love
if you cannot be at peace with me?

John
(smiles) and of what use is peace
without love, Musa?
Of what use is peace
If you cannot live in love with me?
You think about it too!

Musa:
Well, with peace,
I can be patient enough
to give you a chance
to show me
How love lives without peace.
Only then can you sleep
With that Bible of yours by the pillow.

John:
Oh, good! And with love,
I can trust you enough to give you a chance
To show me
how peace lives without love.
Only then can you sleep with that Koran of yours
by my side.

  1. Muhibb, your comment is greatly appreciated. The intention here is not to question any faith, Islam or Christianity, but capture how some of us practice our faith, albeit from a self-serving, myopic and intolerant point of view. There are many Musas out there, just as there are Johns, especially in Nigeria as we speak! Thanks for keeping the conversation going.

  2. This conversation was with an ignorant “Muslim”.
    No educated,sane,conscious muslim would dismiss Jesus,peace be upon him as someone else’s.
    Islaam teaches love,peace and respect for others,most importantly prophets including Jesus and their seal,Muhammad peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him.

Thanks for visiting my blog! You can be sure I'll get back to you in no time. You're always welcome around here! Senator Ihenyen Author
