The researcher and Professor Mushtaq Abbas Ma'an from the al-'Ameed International Center for International Research and Studies of the Department of Intellectual and Cultural Affairs at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy shrine, explained that Islam is a religion of tolerance, coexistence, solidarity and cohabitation, and is against all forms of violence, dissonance, fighting and coercion.
These were the main points highlighted in the research he presented in the international conference held by the two holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and of al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) in the United Nations building in cooperation with the Imam al-Kho'ei Foundation and the Scientific Alliance for Research and Heritage in New York.
The research of Prof. Mushtaq was entitled, the rule of "non-coercion" in the philosophy of the Islamic jurisprudence and approached in the humanity of Islam, in which he discussed the curricula and theories adopted on the basis of general rules that guide the path of achieving it and the adopted procedure to apply it, all of which is derived from the philosophical umbrella that determines the origin of the composition of those general rules. Noting that Islam do not stress on this natural path in the intellectual, cultural and emotional behavior, but goes according to it.
Adding: "The general rule of "non-coercion" is one of the bases of these rules that emphasize humanism in the philosophy of Islamic law... We believe that nonviolence is one of the tenets of non-coercion, but it includes nothing than the rejection of coercion by violence."
Indicating: "The term non-coercion is more general and broader than the term of nonviolence, which gives great human impetus to the characterization of Islamic legislation, leaving no doubt that Islam is a religion of tolerance, coexistence, solidarity and cohabitation, and is against all forms of violence, dissonance, fighting and coercion.”
