In Arabic, the word "fatwah" simply means "opinion," and, in a religious context, a fatwah is a spiritually instructive opinion, usually given as the answer to a question about religious law. Jesus was a master of the art of fatwah. He didn't invent his opinions about loving God or loving one's neighbors. Rather, he found and quoted passages from his sacred text, the Jewish Torah. Five centuries later Mohammad endorsed this Jesus fatwah. It is especially important for Christians to express faithfulness to the Jesus fatwah by loving their Muslim neighbors, a process that begins when we learn who Muslims are and what Muslims actually believe.
