Islam's Tolerance in a Multi-Confessional Society

The attitude of Islam to representatives of other religions or the tolerance of Islam is one of the most important topics of our time. It is especially relevant for Russia, where people living together, practicing different religions.

Religion is a system of divine principles that call people to do good according to their own will.

Understanding the "Allah" Controversy

By : Dr. Mohd. Zaidi bin Ismail | The Star | 23 Jun 2014

By now, Malaysians are generally aware that there have been disputes between the Muslims and the Christians from among them pertaining to the use of the key term "Allah" by the latter.

Unfortunately however, it seems that of the whole controversy most Malaysians can be sure only of that much.

The rest, judging from the many viewpoints and contentions raised thus far, seems convoluted and confused to them.

Muslims & Christmas- Etiquettes and rulings

"Even most practicing Christians don't celebrate Christmas
(they believe the birth of Isa [a.s] to be in Spring/summer)
but some so called "Muslims" are trying to be more Christian than even the Christians sadly..."

The real story about Ex-Christian from UK

By Bruce Paterson / 29 Dec 2012

I would like to take the opportunity to share with you my journey to Islam and I feel that by sharing this experience with you I can help you on your journey through life. We are all born into different cultures, countries and religions in what often seems a confusing and troubled world.

Yet when we look at our own upbringing and our education, how can we be sure that all the things that we have been told, are in reality the truth?

Losing Jerusalem

By Ajaz Ahmed | IslamiCity | 12 May 2012

Visiting Jerusalem is up for debate now, and it's good that it is being taken up and understood now. The question is not whether to visit Jerusalem or not, rather it is visiting it under Israeli's occupation. Islamic scholars have different opinions on this, all of which are respected.

 

How did you Accept Islam?

By Yahya Emerick

Many people have asked me lately how I came to Islam. It is not an unusual question for a convert (or revert) to be asked. I guess I’m being asked about it again because of having this regular column in the Message. Every person who accepts Islam has a unique story and tale to tell. I remember getting one of the books filled with “convert stories” and being enthralled for days at the variety of experiences people have.
