Article summary: 

In an interview, the

general director of the Religious Guidance

Department at the Ministry of Awqāf [Endowments], Dr.

Sālim ‘Abd al-Jalīl

argues that freedom of religion is guaranteed in Islam, since God

says: “There is no compulsion in religion. The

right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who

rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath

grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is

Hearer, Knower.” [Chapter of al-Baqara (the Cow)

2: 256, The Meaning of the Glorious Qur’

ān by Muhammad Marmaduke Pickthall].
