Who cares if you "understand" each other's religion? This link posits argumentative Christian and atheist but you can surely apply it to your situation.

im not asking him to properly understand islam im not asking him to embrace islam
but hes trying for me to become christian and try out christian teaching and i want him to know that its not right for us to do that but he doesnt understand

Lol you think you'll upset him? hahah why don't just convert then? that'll make him feel much better! :roll:

Regardless of HOW you say it, or whatever you say is gonna make him feel "sad" but at least you would have got your message across. That is if you REALLY want him to leave you alone...

look dude i dont mind talking to him
i have no problem with people talking to me about their religion etc. but its the fact that he wants me to convert i dont like and i told him like thats never going to happen but the message doesnt go through to him lol
and me convert? thats crazy dude! LOL 100 times for that suggestion Blum 3

If he wants an argument, give him one.

You may convince him of the truth.

Or you may just get him to shut up.

You can maintain principles and be firm and in a professional environment he has no place taking it the wrong way. If he isn't responding to your reasonable irritation I would refuse to discuss religion and tell him that if he does you will seek to have him issued an official warning, and tell him you like him and would rather not. And if he carries on have a word with the boss and make sure it's all friendly, in fact possibly ask him to discuss it between the three of you and if he won't at least that should do the trick. I know that sounds like tension to you. To me it is about dealing with things in society and your life, as a human being who values his values.
