Mercy, a new opportunity for dialogue between Muslims and Christians

Original Title : La Misericordia, nueva oportunidad para el diálogo entre musulmanes y cristianos

Abstract :

At The common concept of mercy needs a clarification in its meaning for Christians and Muslims. This article delves into the term raḥma with which the Qur’an refers to Allah and its possible links with the Christian tradition, which allows a new approach between Islam and Christianity. The text highlights the importance of the theology of the names of God in the Islamic theological reflection, in which the relevance of two attributes is discovered: Ar-Raḥmân (the Clement) and Ar-Raḥîm (the Merciful). These ground terms are the basis for a “new Islamic theology”, which can have significant consequences in the configuration of current Islam and its relations with the Western world.

Titre original : “La Misericordia, nueva oportunidad para el diálogo entre musulmanes y cristianos”

Résumé

Le concept commun de miséricorde doit être clarifié dans sa signification pour les chrétiens et les musulmans. Cet article se penche sur le terme rahma avec lequel le Coran sw fait référence à Allah et ses liens possibles avec la tradition chrétienne, ce qui permet un nouveau rapprochement entre l’islam et le christianisme. Pour cela, l’importance de la théologie des noms de Dieu fait partie de la réglementation théologique islamique, dans laquelle la pertinence de deux attributs est découverte. Ar-Rahman (le Miséricordieux) et Ar-Rahim (Le Miséricordieux). Sur la base de ceux-ci naît une “nouvelle théologie”, qui peut avoir des conséquences importantes dans la configuration de l’islam actuel et ses relations avec le monde occidental.
