In the name of God, The Most Merciful, The Most Gracious.
Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet you with the traditional Islamic greeting, 'Assalamu Alaikum', (Peace be upon you), this greeting represents the sincere effort of the faithful to spread love and tolerance among all people, whatever their language, belief, or social system.
O humankind! We created you from a single [pair] of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you T.Q. Sura 49, The Inner Apartments, verse 13.
In the Holy Quran, Allah orders Muslims [and, in fact, all sincere believers] to believe in Jesus, Moses, and all the other Biblical prophets, as all were sent by Him as a mercy to humankind:
Say Ye: 'We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord; We make no difference between one and another of them and we bow to Allah in adherence and submission. T.Q., Sura 2, The Cow, verse 136.
Human variety and diversity is viewed as part of the blessing and bounty of Allah. People are urged to go beyond mere coexistence and to actively seek mutual understanding and relationships of cooperation with one another. The prophet Muhammad taught that all people are considered part of the family of Allah, and that Allah loves the most those who are most useful to His family members.
Can Jews, Christians and Muslims Coexist? Let us all motivate people of all faiths to advance the common good by teaching the concept of tolerance and coexistence among all nations.
Islam according to the Quran teaches love and compassion for every human being, no matter their religion.
Islam is a religion revealed to mankind with the intention of presenting a peaceful life where the infinite compassion and mercy of God manifests on earth. God calls all people to live by the moral values He sets so that compassion, mercy, peace and love can be experienced all over the world.
Peace is the cornerstone
