Muslim Perspectives on Mercy – Dr Achmad Achtar (Lecturer in Islamic Studies, Heythrop College)

 On the 29 of April, Dr Achtar was welcomed for a talk at the Sion Centre of Dialogue and Encounter in Baswyater. The lecture was a part of the celebration of the Year of Mercy in Catholic Church. In January 2016 we heard the Catholic perspective on Mercy by fr. Donizetti NDS, in February Jonathan Gorsky spoke about Jewish perspective of Mercy and yesterday evening Dr Achtar talk about Mercy in Quran, Islamic theology and in Sufism. The talk was followed by a number of very interesting conversation between the lecturer and participants.
