The Islamic Interfaith Initiative: No Fear Shall Be upon Them

When ISIS reared its ugly head in the last decade, God had already prepared a “vaccine” against the contagion of extremism that created it: the re-discovery of the Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Peoples of the Book, which firmly place the actions of groups like ISIS under the curse of God and His Prophet. This was largely due to the exhaustive scholarship of Dr John Andrew Morrow, leading to the publication in 2013 of The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World. Not only was this a scholarly triumph, but it also inaugurated an international, interfaith movement throughout the Muslim world known as the Covenants Initiative, which culminated in the acquittal of the Christian woman Asia Bibi on charges of blasphemy by the Pakistani Supreme Court in 2018. The book was quoted by the justices in their decision. This volume of speeches, articles and interviews is a chronicle of the first, activist phase of the Covenants Initiative, proving that socially committed scholarship is alive and well in the twenty-first century.

John Andrew Morrow received his Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of Toronto. An academic, author, educator, and administrator, as well as an international activist and global lecturer, his works include The Messenger of Mercy, Shi‘ism in the Maghrib and al-Andalus, Finding W.D. Fard, The Most Controversial Qur’anic Verse, Islam and the People of the Book, Restoring the Balance, The Covenants of the Prophet Muhammad with the Christians of the World, Religion and Revolution, and the Encyclopedia of Islamic Herbal Medicine, among many others.
