Introducing Islam
by Suhel Farooq Khan

Does Islam tolerate other religions?

The Holy Qur-an commands to respect all other religions and to allow others to continue with their beliefs:

1.   Say (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to these Mushrikun and Kafirun): "O Al- Kafirun (disbelievers in Allah, in His Oneness, in His angels, in His Books, in His Messengers, in the Day of Resurrection, and in Al-Qadr, etc.)!

2.   "I Worship not that which you worship,

3.   "Nor will you worship that which I worship.

4.   "And I shall not worship that which you are worshipping.

5.   "Nor will you worship that which I worship.

6.   "To you be your religion, and to me my religion (Islamic Monotheism)."
[Surah (Chapter) Al-Kafirun (The Disbelievers) Qur-an 109:1-6]

Muslim rulers, whose word of mouth used to be the law, ruled India for almost one thousand years; yet Muslims constitute about 12% of its population. This fact proves that Islam not only tolerates other religions, but also respects them, and allows them to flourish, even when things were under their absolute control.
