British Law Firm Norton Rose Fullbright held an interfaith Christmas performance by the Khayaal Theater Company via zoom on December 17th to celebrate Jesus Christ in the Muslim tradition.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Opening the program, Mohammed Paracha, a partner at the firm focusing on Islamic Finance, said, “Muslims recognize Jesus and his birth in the Qur’an. We even have a chapter named Mary, Maryam (in Arabic).”

“We grow up with stories about Jesus, his miracles and his life. He was a Prophet before Muhammad, peace be upon them both. And in order to be a Muslim you have to believe in Jesus as well,” he added.

The dramatic monologue was delivered by Eleanor Martin, the associate director of Khayaal who mesmerized the audience with her captivating and engaging performance. The zoom chat was full of complimentary remarks.

The production began by sending peace and blessings upon Prophet Jesus, while the narration covered aspects of Prophet Jesus’s life from prior to his birth, his life, and how he was lifted up to heaven.

One of the biggest themes which plucked a particular chord in my heart was the part where Jesus was standing outside a temple and helped an elderly woman light a fire for warmth, as well an account of Jesus giving a poor child food to eat. But as Prophet Zakariya had died, those in the temple had become corrupt and Jesus was criticized for helping them instead of helping the temple.

This reminded me of the wisdom of kindness and generosity. It should be sincere and to help people, not necessarily to support groups and organizations solely.
