Notes: A Conference of Muslim Mission in Germany

The Light (Pakistan), 16th March 1922 Issue (Vol. 1, No. 7, p. 1)

In the Muslim World for October 1921, we read the following:

“A conference of workers of the German Missionary Societies was held at Uchtenhagen, March 29 to April 3, where the following questions were discussed:

  • How must we carry the Christian Message to Islam? — G. Simon
  • Islam as a popular religion among Arabs and Nubians. — J. Enderlin
  • The present situation in Moslem [Muslim] Missions. — Dr J. Richter
  • Personal experiences in Turkistan. — Count Pahlen
  • The Oriental Church and Missions to Moslems. — Mr Ehmann
  • The Oriental Woman. — B. Rohner

We hope to give our readers an account of this gathering later.”

This shows how keen the Christian missionaries are for the spread of Christianity in Muslim countries. It is, however, regrettable that the Muslims are generally quite indifferent to the crying need of the propagation of Islam. Their religion is the universal religion and is meant for the whole of mankind. It is therefore the sacred duty of the Muslims to disseminate the Islamic truths, for which the world is yearning.
