Some people buy fair-trade products, because it is cool or a trend, and not based on ethical reasons. Likewise some Muslims promote better relations with non-Muslims for various reasons, but unfortunately not due to it being a Prophetic character and tradition. Be it in respecting others or another matter, the character of good Muslims ought to depend on them being so, because they are Muslims and not because they happen to be Muslims.
This evening will be looking at closely what Muslims (and others perhaps) inherited from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), on inter-religious relations.
