Peace Catalyst exists to stimulate peacemaking between individuals and between peoples. One of the greatest areas of conflict in the world today is between Christians and Muslims. We work hard to dismantle stereotypes and to help Muslims and Christians feel safe around each other. We do this by following the examples and teaching of Jesus and helping people get to know the "other."

  3. Conversations ~ View of the Afterlife

    One person asked us to address the Islamic view of the afterlife and salvation. In this video, Imam Wasif tells us about two stages of judgment that each person will go through and how God weighs our deeds to determine rewards and punishment.

  4. Conversations ~ Muslim View of Repentance

    Repentance is an important concept in Islam. I have heard Imam Wasif speak many times about the four steps to true repentance. In our series about the afterlife, heaven, hell, rewards and punishments, repentance plays a central role. Listen as the imam explains how one truly repents in a way that God accepts.

  5. Conversations ~ Violence in the Time of Muhammad

    As we talked about the violence of ISIS, I knew many would wonder about violence in the time of Muhammad. So I asked Wasif to explan the difference in the violence we are seeing today and what was going on during the time of Muhammad and the early Caliphs. He talked about the different parts of the Qur'an that came from Mecca and Medina and how Muhammad moved from being solely a spiritual leader to also being a political leader. As a political leader, Muhammad gave guidelines on waging war.

  6. Is There a Caliph in Syria?

    Imam Wasif, with other Sunni and Shia Muslim leaders in Louisville, called a press conference on August 25, 2014 to condemn the actions of ISIS. Afterwards we sat and I asked some clarifying questions. In this video Imam Wasif agrees with respected Islamic scholars that Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi’ is no caliph. He explains a little about the expectations of a true caliph and tells us why he disapproves of Al-Baghdadi.
