Having Faith in Interfaith: Creating a Connected Country

Intolerance is no stranger to Islam, as it has been present since the time of Prophet Muhammad
(S) and the tribe of Quraysh. Even then, through a respectful and well-constructed
interfaith dialogue, the young Ummah represented its beliefs and worked to replace
misconception with truth. Today, intolerance remains prevalent and has become a virus
that is quickly spreading worldwide. One of the most practical ways to stop the growth of
this epidemic is by encouraging a positive and open communication between faiths, as
they did in the Prophet’s (S) time. As young, energetic and articulate Muslims, let’s learn
to work together to build hope for a tolerant tomorrow.
