The Knowledge Exchange Program organized the Forum about Tolerance in Islam for scholarship students at Umm Al Qura University in cooperation with the Cooperative Office for Propagation and Guidance in Makkah. The seminar was attended by Dr. Abdullah bin Fahd Al-Lhaidan and attended by Mr. Saad Al-Qarni and directed by Dr. Sabah Al-Din Salmani. And coordinated by Bakr and Tara from Umm al-Qura University and Ali al-Shehri from the exchange program. Al-Lhaidan explained that the Prophet peace be upon him came for peace and mercy for mankind and to save it and bring it out of darkness to light until all people reach the highest levels of human morality in all their dealings in life. The Almighty said about the message of Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)W have sent you as mercy for the worlds) . Islam is a universal religion whose mission is to all humanity, a message that calls for justice and ends injustice, and calls for positive coexistence among all human beings in an atmosphere of brotherhood and tolerance among all people regardless of their race, color and beliefs. Everyone is descended from “one soul,” as stated in the Holy Quran: “O people, fear your Lord who created you from one soul” (Women: 1)
Al-Lhaidan explained that Islam, which was brought by the Messenger of humanity Muhammad peace be upon him carried with it several important laws have been published around the world. One of the most important of these laws is the law of tolerance and coexistence, which was confirmed by the blessed verses, as well as the honorable hadiths. In the Quran there is more than one verse calling for softness and peace and renouncing violence and oppression such as:
) Call to the path of your Lord with wisdom and good exhortation and argue with them which is the best ((bees: 125)
) And if the ignorant addressed them say peace ((Criterion: 63).
Islam has been keen to emphasize this tolerance among religions by making it a fundamental element of the Muslim faith.
This definition of tolerance means, above all, a positive attitude in which the right of others to enjoy their fundamental rights and freedoms is recognized. The practice of tolerance does not conflict with respect for human rights, nor does it mean abandoning one’s rights, beliefs or complacency. This tolerance called for by Islam leads to coexistence and then achieves peace, which is the hope of all humanity.
Peace is a cultural necessity that Islam has proposed for many centuries as a necessity for all aspects of human life, from the individual to the whole world, where society is founded and developed.
Al-Lhaidan then touched upon the evidence and manifestations of tolerance in Islam:
-The right to life for all
-human dignity
-Freedom of belief
The Forum also included the theme of religions between tolerance and confrontation and the march of Islamic thought in contemporary history and then was a presentation of the program of knowledge exchange: the beginning, goals and achievements. The forum lasted from 10 am to 3 pm and was attended by more than sixty students from the scholarship students at Umm Al Qura University and was followed by a luncheon for the participants.
