Islam Is Tolerant To Other Faiths

Muslims are amazed and startled with the claim that Muslims are intolerant with other faiths, as history witnesses the tolerant nature of Islam.
As a matter of fact, other religions are more secured under Islamic Rule. Furthermore, throughout the Qur`an, Muslims are reminded that they are not the only ones who worship God.
Jews and Christians are called People of the Book, meaning people who have received previous revelations from the One Almighty God that we all worship.
The Qur`an also commands Muslims to protect not only mosques, but also monasteries, synagogues, and churches… (They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right, (fo o cause) except that they say, Our Lord is God. Did not God check one set of people by means of another there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of God is commemorated in abundant measure. God will certainly aid those who aid His (cause); for verily God is Full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will). (AL-Hajj)(22:40)
Yet, Muslim communities as other religious flowers are plagued with some ignorant followers who do not tolerate others, not because of the religious teachings but rather the ignorant nature of such individuals.
