Whether you are meeting at an Arab Muslim's home or doing business in a Muslim country, there are certain social graces, customs and behavior which must be understood. Here is a short summary of the key points to keep in mind.
Even before Islam, sulha came about as a means for settling disputes in the absence of a legal system. Musalaha (reconciliation) is reached in the step-by-step process of sulha, practised by both Muslim and Christian Arabs.
The ultimate corporate expression of Muslim community is called "Ummah", an Arabic word meaning "people, generation, or community". For Muslims, the reality of the Ummah is especially experienced during the Muslim pilgrimage or Hajj to Mecca. Remember that there are literally millions of Muslims around the world praying towards Mecca (Qibla).
Most Christians are fairly uninformed about Islamic beliefs. In a similar way, many Muslims do not understand or are ignorant of Christian teaching about Jesus. Muslims claim that Jesus did not die on the cross - such a death is considered to be unworthy of such a good prophet. They affirm that Jesus was taken up to heaven without dying.
