This chapter is a response by Muslim theologia, Amir Hussain to the work of Holly Hillgardner and Tracy Sayuki Tiemeier. It takes the connections between the Christian and Indic traditions discussed in their chapters and connects them to Islamic concepts, particularly Muslim understandings of Mary, the mother of Jesus. There is also a discussion of Sufism, the mystical tradition in Islam. The work of scholars Wilfred Cantwell Smith and María Rosa Menocal is introduced as a way of talking about the lived experience of religion. There is also a discussion of music that connects across various religious traditions.

Keywords:   Islam, Jesus in Islam, María Rosa Menocal, Mary in Islam, music, Muslims, Wilfred Cantwell Smith, sufism, theological anthropology
