To know other faiths is to strengthen one’s own (in English, Burmese and Arabic)

September 17, 2010

In our Holy Quran, it is clearly stated that:

Al-Hujraat O mankind! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware. (13)

 

  1. We set you up as nations and tribes so that you may be able to recognize each other” (49:13).
  2. The division of human beings into nations, races, groups and tribes is for the sake of distinction, so that people of one race or tribe may meet and be acquainted with the people belonging to another race or tribe and co-operate with one another.
  3. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor is it meant for one nation to treat another with contempt or disgrace, or regard them as a mean and degraded race and usurp their rights.
  4. Indeed, the noblest among you before God are the most heedful of you (49:13).
