"We worship the same God."

Muslims in the village of Khaksabad, Pakistan, are donating what they can toward building a new mud chapel for the Christians (shown below) in their community. The former chapel was destroyed by a storm, and Christian villager Faryal Masih said of his Muslim neighbors, "Since my childhood we have all lived together in this place. We live with love, and attend each other's weddings and festivals."

The new chapel means Christians in the village will no longer have to rent or borrow a house to celebrate Christmas, Easter, and other holidays. A Muslim shop keeper explained why the Christian chapel is important. "A church is also a house of Allah; praying is what matters. We worship the same God," he said.
