Sonya Shami


This study is a general review of Surat Al-Imran (3rd Chapter of Quran) with regard to the contrast between Islamic Dawah (the call to embrace Islam) on the one hand and the Rejection of Dawah on the other hand. It examines the definition of Islam and the basic principles of Islamic Dawah and logical argumentation. It also examines the stages, reasons and consequences of the rejection of Dawah, and Islam's position on this rejection. This study explores some Quranic principles of dealing with argumentative disputes, denial of given facts, and refusal of accepting Allah's religion. It also tackles on the nature of relationship between Muslims and Non-Muslims. Finally, it proves that Quran calls for freedom of thought, justice, tolerance, security, coexistence, unity and steadfastness.

Keywords: Islam, Religion, Freedom, Tolerance, Dawah, Rejection, Quran, Surat Al-Imran.
