In the first place, we would like to stress that Muslims should have good relations with people of all religions. Muslims should be kind and courteous to everyone at their school, work, and anywhere else. Islam teaches its adherents to interact with all people and cooperate for the good and betterment of the whole mankind. Islam encourages Muslims to cooperate with everyone regardless of his or her religion or creed as well as in all projects that are virtuous or beneficial to humanity or other creatures of God.
Zeinab Al-`Alawani, an instructor of fiqh and Islamic studies at the Graduate School of Islamic and Social Sciences, states the following: As for the teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), we are supposed to respect every human being and not to feel disgusted towards anyone as Allah [hashonored the children of Adam] (Al-Israa‘ 17:170).
What others believe or adopt as ideology and way of life should not stop us from dealing in a friendly way with them and interacting positively with them. Of course, dealing in a friendly way with them does not mean doing wrong actions, especially when it comes to eating their foods or drinks if they contain anything that is not lawful for us. We should educate them about what we believe so they don’t do anything that might be offensive.
the key principle in this type of relationship is described by Allah when He says,[Allah does not forbid you to deal kindly and fairly with people that are not fighting you because of your faith or expelling you from your homes] (Al-Mumtahanah 60:8).
