pluralism can be defined as “respecting the otherness of others”.
Freedom of religion comprises all religions stand-in within the law in a
particular region. Religions teach that theirs is the only way to paradise and
is the true religion, and some of them would even argue that it is necessary to
overcome the lies taught by other religions.
The world see Islam as ferocious and intolerant
world religion. This misunderstanding is fueled in part by the criminal deeds
of some Muslims, particularly toward those of other faith followers. That
action is then credited to Islamic guideline and coreligionist globally. The accusation
is not fair because one Muslim’s action may not in fact be supported by
informed readings of Islamic legal criticisms, nor necessarily he presents the
2.2 billion Muslims of the world. This is especially true of fierceness against
religious minorities in Muslim-majority countries, like Egypt or in any
country, period. Acumen, oppression and fierceness against an individual or
group based upon religious believes is fundamentally wrong no matter how you
look at it. Quran look upon by Muslims as the literal word of God. It is the
source of constituting Islamic law. And it speak clearly several significant
principles about inter-religious coherence, peaceful co-existence and religious
pluralistic success.Some of these are mentioned here:
First, the Quran states that monotheistic
religions come from the Divine: “The
same religion He has established for you is as that which He enjoined on Noah —
and what We now reveal to you — and enjoined on Abraham, Moses, Jesus, saying,
‘Establish the religion and do not become divided therein'” (42:13).
Further states, “Say, ‘We believe in God and in
that which He has revealed to us and to Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, the
descendants and that which was revealed to Moses, Jesus and that which was
revealed to the prophets from their Lord, We make no difference between one and
another and we bow in submission to Him'” (2:136).
Thus, Quran Sharif makes the belief in all the
prophets — from Adam to Noah to Abraham to Moses to Jesus compulsory upon Muslims.
All of the prophets should be respected, as should their followers.
Indeed, Islam always strictly prohibit cruelty in
all of its ugly forms, irrespective of the faith, gender, race or economic
status of the victim or culprit. The Quran teaches, “Help one another in
benevolence and piety, and help not one another in sin and transgression”
So such, Muslims are spiritually forbidden from harassing
the believers of other faith groups. Thus, killings, maiming, burnings,
discrimination and fierceness against minority religious communities by Muslims
Islamic principle provides for religious freedom.
The Quran says, “Let there be no compulsion in religion” (2:256) and “Will you
then compel mankind, against their will, to believe?” (10:99).
The Islamic legitimate custom, mankind has choice
to practice decision, including religious choices. God is accepted to be the
sole moderator of religious contrasts. This is genuine even on account of
change from Islam. Various Islamic researchers have discovered that Muslims are
allowed to leave the wrinkle of Islam without affliction exact retribution for
doing as such. The death penalty, the punishment frequently offered out to such
changes over, is held by Islamic law for the wrongdoing of double-crossing and not
transformation, they hold. At last, Islam orders Muslim defending out of every
other place on earth of perfect love:
it not been for God’s checking some men by means of others, monasteries,
churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the name of God is often mentioned,
would have been destroyed” (22:40).
Therefore, the destruction, ruin or vandalism by
Muslims of other houses of worship here or abroad is a huge violation of
Islamic legal principles.
These principles derived from the Quran make
clear that all of humankind share the same blessedness of life and honor.
