Does Islam tolerate other beliefs?

لَا يَنْهَاكُمُ اللَّهُ عَنِ الَّذِينَ لَمْ يُقَاتِلُوكُمْ فِي الدِّينِ وَلَمْ يُخْرِجُوكُم مِّن دِيَارِكُمْ أَن تَبَرُّوهُمْ وَتُقْسِطُوا إِلَيْهِمْ إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ
“Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loveth those who are just.”
[Al Qur’an – Surah Al Mumtahina (060:008)]

It is one function of the Islamic law to protect the privileged status of minorities, and this is why non-Muslim places of worship have flourished all over the Islamic world. History provides many examples of Muslim tolerance towards other faiths: when the caliph Umar (r) entered Jerusalem in the year 634, Islam granted freedom of worship to all religious communities in the city. Need I say Umar (r) walked into Jerusalem wearing ragged clothes, while his servant rode on his horse into the City. He did not march in with his army nor did he go there for a parade. Merely due to the fact that it was his servant’s turn to ride the horse, he the new RULER of Jerusalem walked while his servant rode. This is what Islam brought, an once tough man full of pride, made humble and simple due to the fear and sincerity towards his Lord, our Lord, Allah (swt).

The Patriarch invited him to pray in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, but he preferred to pray outside its gates, saying that if he accepted, later generations of Muslims might use his action as an excuse to turn it into a Masjid (Mosque). Above is the Masjid built on the spot where Umar (r) did pray.

There never was a 'Golden Age' or gleaming free hospitals full of happy folk, its always been the same same as this...

"A mobile phone worker who called himself ‘Captain the illiterate‘ and planned a suicide bomb attack was in the country illegally after the Home Office shut down his bogus college, a court has heard.

Mohammed Kamal Hussain, 28, was attending a college in Whitechapel, East , when it was shut down and his student visa withdrawn.

The Home Office wrote to him as an ‘over-stayer‘ but he never returned to his home in Bangladesh, Kingston Crown Court was told.

Hussain is accused of collecting bomb-making recipes in order to launch an attack last summer and had downloaded a picture of the Queen.

He told his s he wanted to arrange a ‘barbecue party‘ – said to be code for an attack – and planned to ‘do something big.‘

Using the name, ‘Captain the illiterate‘, Hussain told one female : ‘I‘m a simple man…I hate the smart people. Inshallah, I will be smart after I go to Paradise…before die, wanna punish some kuffar.‘

Asked how he came up with the name, Hussain told the court: ‘It doesn‘t have any meaning, I just liked this name.‘

Looks like that one backfired just a teensy bit, no?
