Dr. Nasir Zaidi (Muslim Chaplain at UBC) spoke about some of the sayings attributed to Jesus Christ in the Islamic scriptures. In the Qur’an, Jesus is quoted as claiming to be a soft-hearted and humble servant of God, who warns against being judgmental when our own faults are all too apparent. This world gives us many moral and spiritual challenges to remind us of God and help us prepare for the Day of Judgment. The fifth Sunday of Lent is also two months ahead of the start of Ramadan, so may we all take the time to practice righteous living – taking good actions, with good intentions, resulting in good effects.
