Tolerance is the attitude that should govern the dealings of all people with one another. Religious tolerance is an essential principle of Islam, and Muslims are ordered to have good relations with people of all religions and be kind and courteous with everyone. Muslims are ordered by the Quran to uphold their promises and agreements with non-Muslims and not betray or transgress against them. The lives, families, properties and honor of non-Muslims must be protected under any government that claims to apply Islamic law. Islam is a religion of mercy and justice. It teaches its adherents to interact with all people and to cooperate with them for the betterment of mankind. More than ever today, Muslims need to work together with other groups to oppose oppression, bloodshed, corruption, promiscuity and perversion. They should also cooperate with all people in upholding truth and combating falsehood, in supporting the oppressed and eliminating such dangers as pollution and disease.
Coexistence does not mean that we cease to promote our way of life, our positive values, morals and beliefs. As an aspect of their kindness and concern for humanity, Muslims are expected to invite non-Muslims to the truth of Islam with words of wisdom, sound arguments and a pleasant manner. This is a debt owed by Muslims to the people of the world in gratitude to the Creator for His guidance and countless blessings.
