There are many Churches in present day Muslim countries eg Egypt, Syria, Turkey, Pakistan, and Indonesia. This is in line with the freedom of religion given in Islam.

However it is right to note that some countries have gone against this Islamic injunction and prohibited collective worship by non-Muslims. This is wrong and completely unacceptable. Never did the Prophet Muhammad(saw) forbid the building of a church, nor did he order the demolition of a church. In fact the Quran mentions that we Muslims are to defend Churches, and synagogues if they are attacked,

Those who have been driven out from their homes unjustly only because they said, Our Lord is Allah And if Allah did not repel some men by means of others, there would surely have been pulled down cloisters and churches and synagogues and mosques, wherein the name of Allah is oft-commemorated. And Allah will surely help one who helps Him. Allah is indeed Powerful, Mighty.

He prophet allowed christians and jews to build churchs and their religous building and allowed them to practice their religon ..
even now in the arabic country we have churchs for christians and allow them to practice their religon even the jews we have arab jews and arab christians ..
There is no compulsion in islam, you may build your church where ever you want in any other islamic lands coz we believe in freedom of religion, we have minority of other religions living beside us in harmony and without any problem. Makka and Madina are exceptional cities just those two places are not allowed for non believers, whole Makka and Madina cities are like a complex of mosque and non believers can't enter into mosque. suppose there is a large complex of temples and inside that there is a vacant area, can I make a mosque there?? of course not....
that doesn't mean we feel that we are superior to others in this life.
Vatican (a country not part of Italy that has billions of stolen wealth) ...more
