Cardinals, Muslim judge, academics discuss significance of Fratelli tutti
October 06, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: At an October 4 press conference, Cardinal Pietro Parolin (the Vatican’s Secretary of State) and four other speakers discussed the Pope’s new encyclical on fraternity and social friendship. “As a young Muslim scholar of Shari’a (law), Islam, and its sciences, I find myself —with much love and enthusiasm —in agreement with the Pope, and I share every word he has written in the Encyclical,” said Judge Mohamed Mahmoud Abdel Salam, secretary-general of the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

Is it just me, or is there an incongruity between "Shari’a (law), Islam, and its sciences" on the one hand, and Christ as known through Catholicism on the other? Am also wrong to think that acquiescing to a contradiction never arrives at a fruitful outcome? I might actually have to spend some time with this encyclical, even though time can be such a precious thing to waste.
