Today the Muslim world is no longer "somewhere else"; instead, North America has become part of the Muslim world. In the United States alone, four to six million Muslims are living in local neighborhoods, sharing workplaces and attending our schools and universities. Muslims desire to play an influential role in American life, culture, and politics. Muslim traditions regarding morality and justice, however, still vary from those of the Christian faith, as we will see in chapter 3. Among several differences, in Islamic law a woman is inferior to man, with lesser credibility as a witness and having a lesser share in any inheritance (Surah 2:282; 4:11). And while in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is not a crime to turn way from one's faith, anyone who forsakes Islam is considered an apostate, one who has renounced religious faith. According to Muhammad, the penalty is death (Hadith 9:57). Despite these conflicts of morality and justice between the Judeo-Christian and Muslim traditions, Christians need to reach out with Christlike love and godly wisdom to the Muslim community. They need to befriend Muslims and present the good news of Jesus Christ.
