Fr. Samir offers comments in light of pope’s upcoming visit to Egypt.
Along with other learned comments from this Islamic scholar is his critical clarification that Catholics and Muslims believe in monotheism, the existence of one god, but this does not suggest we believe in the same God. This is simple logic. Our God is Triune and theirs is not and the differences continue and build from their. We can not say an orange and an apple are the same because they both come from a tree. They are fruits but not the same fruit.
