Christians and Muslims find common ground as Perth church hosts Ramadan

The church has been opening its doors to local Muslims as a place to conduct their Friday prayers for almost six years.

This year the church hosted Ramadan on every Friday of the holy month, in what is thought to be the first time in Australia Muslims and Christians spent the sacred time side by side.

The two religious leaders said despite history often painting the two faiths as warring tribes, they were finding commonalities, and also learning to understand their differences.

"I think the best way to make headway when there's lots of misunderstanding is just to break bread, share a meal," Imam Faizel said.

"Because the easiest way to a man's heart — or women's heart for that matter — is through their tummies."
