ALI-331: Religious Pluralism according to the Quran
We live in pluralistic societies where we work and collaborate with people of different faiths. Whilst their doctrinal beliefs may be different from ours, they do exhibit good morals and character. On the other hand our faith teaches us that paradise is for the believers and hellfire is for those who have rejected the true beliefs. How then we wonder will God judge our neighbors and colleagues who are not believers. The course will cover the concepts of religious and social pluralism. It will also delve on important questions such as the validity of other faiths and whether people who follow other religions can achieve salvation. The discussion will be primarily be guided by verses and concepts of the Quran.
