Interfaith dialogue

Question ID: 39192

What is the status & is there any place for interfaith dialogue in Shariah?
To date, and may be I am wrong, my understanding is that it can lead to corruption of one’s own Deen by listening to the ideologies of other religions our heart will be affected. Listening & contemplating their Dawat will affect our heart.
It is very confusing when one sees Ulama participating in interfaith dialogue, meetings & functions, because one begins to think there must be some Shar’i daleel for their actions but I have not seen any public daleel on this issue?

Ask them.
Today's interfaith dialogues are totally un-Islaamic in nature. One must not participate in them. In participating one is giving the impression that:
1) All religions are equal.
2) All religions are true.
3) All religious groups are going to Jannat.
4) There is no false religion.
5) Kufr and Shirk are permissible.
Hence, participating in this activity is not only vain and futile but also a major risk to one's own Imaan.
