*Interfaith Dialogue?*

*Reported that Hazrat Umar ra used to go by some jews of Madinah to listen to their religious scriptures.*

*Once hé brought a piece of their scriptures in front of Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam. Rasouloullah Swalallahou Alaihi Wasallam became very angry and said: “Are you people still confused about your religion… I came with an enlightened religion and pure(unmixed)..”*

وَعَنْ جَابِرٌ عَنِ النَّبِيِّ ﷺ حِينَ أَتَاهُ عُمَرُ فَقَالَ إِنَّا نَسْمَعُ أَحَادِيثَ مِنْ يَهُودَ تُعْجِبُنَا أَفْتَرَى أَنْ نَكْتُبَ بَعْضَهَا؟ فَقَالَ: «أَمُتَهَوِّكُونَ أَنْتُمْ كَمَا تَهَوَّكَتِ الْيَهُودُ وَالنَّصَارَى؟ لَقَدْ جِئْتُكُمْ بِهَا بَيْضَاءَ نَقِيَّةً وَلَوْ كَانَ مُوسَى حَيًّا مَا وَسِعَهُ إِلَّا اتِّبَاعِي» . رَوَاهُ أَحْمد وَالْبَيْهَقِيّ فِي كتاب شعب الايمان

مشكاة المصابيح

*On another occasion Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam said: “Don’t ask the people of the book anything on religion because they went astray and cannot guide you people. Choose : either you accept falsehood or you would deny truth.*

وعن جابرٍ، قال: قال رسول الله ﷺ: «لا تَسْأَلُوا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ عَنْ شَىْءٍ، فَإِنَّهُمْ لَنْ يَهْدُوكمْ وَقَدْ ضَلُّوا، وَإِنَّكُمْ إِمَّا أَنْ تُصَدِّقُوا بِبَاطِلٍ، وَإِمَّا أَنْ تُكَذبُوا بحَقٍّ، وَإِنَّهُ وَاللَّهِ لَوْ كَانَ مُوسى حَيًّا بَيْنَ أَظْهُرِكُمْ مَا حَلَّ لَهُ إِلا أَنْ يَتَّبِعَنِى».

*Hence cannot mix two opposite poles/ideologies.*

*From this we denote that Rasouloullah swalallahou alaihi wasallam categorically rejected the interfaith exchange/dialogue.*

*Hazrat Umar ra administratively issued only 3 days visas from non Muslim businessmen in Madinah Munawarah.*

*He ra used to say: Two religions cannot strive in one place.*

وَحَدَّثَنا نَافِعٌ عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُمَرَ أَنَّ عُمَرَ بْنَ الْخَطَّابِ رضي الله عنه كَانَ لا يَدَعُ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى وَلا الْمَجُوسَ يَمْكُثُونَ بالمدينة فوق ثلاثة أيام قدر ما يبيعون وَكَانَ يَقُولُ لا يَجْتَمِعُ دِينَانِ وَإِنَّهُ أَجْلَى الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى مِنْ جَزِيرَةِ الْعَرَبِ.

*Our deen teach us to live diplomatically and at peace with non muslins. But this should not be the price of our deen and our Imaan.*
