I just joined an interfaith group, because the local church sponsored some Muslim Somali refugee family of 5 females (mother plus 4 daughters) and they also wanted some Muslims to help out.
Since I am new to this inter faith interactions, I want to be educated to make sure I understand the limits of interactions with Christians/Jews etc in regards to religious issues.
Recently the pastor asked them to come and join the church prayer service and they declined to join them saying Muslims can’t join it. I don’t know the answer myself.
I do know that as fellow humans we can openly participate in secular activities. However, I am not sure about matters involving worship/prayers etc.
Also, if you can kindly give some principles about some issues:
1) Can I join them if they invite for worship services, prayer services etc
2) when time for prayer comes, can I pray salah at the church?
3) If they do bible study, can I join them?
4) Someone told me it is ok to go to church if you are giving dawah or giving lecture about Islam.is this correct?
