Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to an agreement ... (Sura 3:64)

Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to an agreement between us and you: that we shall worship none but Allah, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him, and that none of us shall take others for lords beside Allah. And if they turn away, then say: Bear witness that we are they who have surrendered (unto Him).

Summary
Article summary: 

Muslim thinker Dr. Muḥammad ‘Imārah has come under fire for his book, ’Fitnat al-Takfīr Bayna al- Shī‘ah wa-al-Wahābīyah wa-al-Sūfīyah’ [Reviewer: The Sedition of Takfīr between Shī‘ah, Wahhābism and Ṣūfism], in which he quoted texts that allegedly incite the killing of non-Muslims. Disregarding Dr. ‘Imārah’s "clear and unequivocal apology" for the "unintentional" offence that his book had caused, a spokesman for the Coptic Orthodox Church announced that the Ministry of Endowments’ decision to withdraw the book from markets was "insufficient" to resolve the crisis.

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].
