Interreligious Activities and Initiatives
Under the shade of the Prophets tree
تحت ظل شجرة الأنبياء
The initiative includes a documentary film about the Al-Baqi’a tree located in the Safawi region, east of Jordan.. It is a tree more than one thousand five hundred years old.. It is located on the ancient trade route between the Arabian Peninsula and the Levant.. Christian monasteries are around it
The Prophet Muhammad visited it on his journey to the Levant and sat under it and was received by the monk who lives next to it and told him that this tree is the seat of the prophets..
This tree represents a symbol of the integration of religions and the coexistence between them under one shade.
The trunk of the tree is the origin of religion, and the branches are the prophets, and all human beings live in its shadows
تتضمن المبادرة فيلم وثائقي عن شجرة البقيعاوية الموجودة في منطقة الصفاوي شرق الأردن..وهي شجرة يبلغ عمرها أكثر من ألف وخمسمائة عام..تقع على طريق التجارة القديم بين الجزيرة العربية والشام.. ويوجد حولها أديرة مسيحية..
زارها النبي محمد في رحلته إلى الشام وجلس تحتها واستقبله الراهب الذي يعيش بجوارها وأخبره أن هذه الشجرة مكان جلوس الأنبياء..
فتمثل هذه الشجرة رمزا لتكامل الأديان والتعايش بينهم تحت ظل واحد.
جذع الشجرة هو أصل الدين والفروع هم الأنبياء والبشر جميعا يعيشون في ظلالها
