Abstract and Keywords

This Epilogue offers a response to the chapters of the Handbook from an Islamic perspective. It addresses the way Muslims should look at the diversity of the Abrahamic religions, considering both commonalities and differences. The discussion focuses on several points: the relationship between the scriptural sources of the three traditions according to Islam; how to reconcile singularity within the community, the universality of principles, the human family as ‘one family’, and the overall shared sacred history of the Abrahamic religions; education and the transmission or dissemination of the three religions; the role of religion within contemporary secular and consumerist societies; the question of environment and issues pertaining to applied ethics; and the issue of violence. The conclusion will profess to the consequent necessity for continual dialogue so as to facilitate the understanding of one another’s references and viewpoints.

Keywords: ahl al-kitāb, scriptures, community, revelation, Last Messenger, education, environment, violence, solidarity
