Quran Quote of the Day on Peace
Speaking of converts to Islam from other religions, the Quran praises them for their faith, charity and good works. Of course, since they come from another community, they still have friends and relatives who might disapprove of the new religion of Islam. They might insult the Muslims. How to deal with this?
28:55, And when they hear vain talk, they turn away from it and say: “To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we do not seek out the ignorant.”
The response is to wish those who are taunting the new Muslims well, and to express a desire for peaceful co-existence. “To us our deeds, and to you yours.” Each group, Muslim and non-Muslim, may practice as they please. “Peace be to you,” they say.
