Does Tolerance Mean Giving Up Your Opinion!? Mufti Menk

Many people think  tolerance means I’m going to give up my faith I’ll tolerate. So I don’t have to do what Allah has said. I don’t have to dress in a specific way. I don’t have to pray in a specific way. I don’t have to do X Y & Z that the Almighty has instructed that is a misconception completely. Tolerance has nothing to do with giving up your opinion. It has more to do with respecting the same right that others have of not giving up their opinions amazing!

As much as I am passionate about slam there are people who are passionate about Christianity, there are people who are passionate about Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism whatever other ISM even atheism. I can believe that I am correct and I do right to believe as human beings in whatever they consider to be the most correct, subhanAllah!

Religion has partly been hijacked by those who don’t understand scriptures, those who have misinterpreted it intentionally to suit their own agendas of creating disaster on the globe in the name of the most merciful.

O people, We have created you from a single male and female and thereafter We have made you spread as different peoples and tribes [From the Quran] why? Why is there black and white and yellow and brown, why are there different races, ethnicity, different sizes, different understandings, one word in order that you can recognize each other? You are different, not so that you can discriminate against each other.

Every race and every nationality and every ethnicity has in it good and bad. So you would be totally uneducated if you thought that a nationality in its entirety is bad just because of the acts of a few. – Mufti Menk

People Told Me That You Are Losing Your Faith – Mufti Menk

🛑How to react with differences in opinion‼️
==========================
📌Everyone has the right to live everyone has the right to believe whatever they feel is correct. We are not in desperate need of a balanced voice that does not take away from us our religion nor does it take away from anyone else their right to believe in whatever they feel is correct but rather it gives us that mutual respect which results in the peaceful coexistence.

⚡️Let’s educate ourselves, let‘s become people who are willing to peacefully coexist that is the entire meaning of tolerance.

When I Am Totally Different From You – Mufti Menk

🛑Never feel or never allow yourself to become so proud and arrogant that you deny the truth. ‼️
=======================
📌Especially when we become religious, when we become people who are very close to scripture in any religion and sometimes even ideologically, when we believe we are very intelligent and we have the right way. We tend to forget that others could be more intelligent or equally intelligent and their intellect might lead them to something else.

☑️if I am weak and I am a coward, I might want to harm them and attack them but if I am strong and if I display that level of intellect I will engage them in discussion to prove certain factors and who knows they might prove to me that they are right and I am wrong.

My Father Is Forcing Me To Marry – Mufti Menk

🛑Don’t create a disaster for your future generation ‼️
===================================
⚡️Ask yourself a question in the same way that I don’t like people to do wrong to me. Do I do wrong to others that are a very powerful question? Because many people want to be protected from harm but they don’t protect others from their own harm.

Let the children communicate with you. If what they want is not Haram, facilitate it for them. If Allah allowed it who are you to disallow it? The children belong to Allah. Allah gave them to you temporarily just to see what you would do, are you going to do what we asked you to do or you’re going to do what your whims and fancies want…………..
