Does Islam Accept Other Beliefs?

The Quran says:

Allah (God ) forbids you not, with regard to [your] faith nor drive you out of the house, kind and just with them, those who fight you not, for God loves the righteous. (Al-Quran 60:8)

It is a function of Islamic law to protect the privileged status of minorities, and, therefore, have flourished in non-Muslim places of worship all over the Islamic world. History provides numerous examples of Muslim tolerance towards other faiths: when the caliph Omar entered Jerusalem in 634, Islam granted freedom of religion for all religious communities in the city.

Islamic law also allows non-Muslim minorities, in their own courts, family laws for minorities to take home countries.

Above: The Mosque of Omar and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. When the caliph Omar took Jerusalem, the Byzantines, he insisted the city with only a small number of his companions. Declaration of the inhabitants that their lives and their property safe, and that their worship would never be taken away from them, he asked the Christian patriarch Sophronius in his visit to all the holy places.

The Patriarch asked him to pray for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but he prefers the gates to pray, to say if he accepted the later generations of Muslims might use his action as an excuse to make it a mosque. Above the mosque at the place where Omar prayed to have been built.

RIGHT: According to Islam, man is not ”original sin” was born. He is God’s vicegerent on earth. Every child is born with fitra, a congenital tendency to virtue, knowledge, and beauty. Islam sees itself as the “Old Religion”, Din al-Hanif can, if it is to restore man to his original, true nature, which he inspired the creation of harmony, to do good, and strengthen the unity of God.
