Concern for the truth, combined with a personal loyalty to one's faith, tend to keep the believers of one religion at a distance from those who adhere to another.

If this distance is rigidly maintained over time, communication usually breaks down, attitudes become frozen, and some degree of bigotry is bound to emerge.

Islam is unique among the world's major religions in that the Qur'an explicitly provides five guidelines for Muslims on how to view other faiths.

Throughout history, when Muslims followed these Quranic precepts -- whether they were in a position of authority, or even as a numerically weaker minority group -- they, as well as members of other religions living around them, benefited greatly. The degree of compassionate and just treatment by Muslims to adherents of other religions far exceeded that meted out by authorities of other religions toward Muslims.

We make no distinction between any of them72 and to Him do we submit.
Expalanation:-*72. They are told that it is not the habit of Muslims either to believe in Prophets and disbelieve in others or to affirm to the truth of some call others false. Muslims are free from narrow prejudices and chauvinistic loyalties. The true attitude of Muslims is to bear witness to truth of every Messenger of God, irrespective of where and when he appears.

Islam is the religion of all the true prophets of the One Almighty God (Allah). Muslims believe that all the prophets were sent to their respective peoples from God (Allah). They all had the same mission and message - guiding people to the right path.
There are three revealed, monotheistic religions: Islam Christianity Judaism
These all trace their origins back to Abraham, peace be upon him.
The prophets of these religions were directly descended from him - Moses, Jesus and others from Isaac, but Muhammad, peace be upon him, was from Ibrahim through his other son, Ismael. It was Prophet Abraham who had established the settlement which today is the city of Makkah, and with his son Ismael built the Ka'bah, which Muslims all over the world face when they pray.

Christians and Jews hold a special place in Islam. They are called the People of the Book (Ahl al-Kitab), since the original Torah and Gospel were also divinely revealed and they shared in the prophetic tradition. Islamic ...more
