الوئام بين الأديان باسم الله الرحمن الرحيم والصلاة والسلام على رسل الله أجمعين وعلى آلهم وصحبهم وكلّ من سار على نهجهم . باديء ذي بدىء لا بدّ من توضيح ما يلي : 1- إنّ لفظ الكفر المستعمل في كتاب الله القرآن الكريم يعني عدم التصديق . 2- إنّ كلّ البشرمسلمين لله طبقا لما اخبرتنا به الآية القرآنيّة : (وله اسلم من في السماوات والأرض طوعا وكرها ) 83 آل عمران 3 – إنّ دين الله هو دين واحد , دعت إليه كافة الشرائع السماويّة المنزلة على رسل الله وكذلك دعا إليه كافة رسل الله . وذلك وفقا لما اخبرتنا به الآية القرآنية : ( إنّ الدين عند الله الإسلام ) 19 آل عمران ومفاده أن يسلم المرء أمره لله وينفّذ كلّ تعاليم الله المنزلة على رسل الله .ويستبان من ذلك بأن أتباع رسل الله كلّهم مسلمون . وهذا مثبت في آيات الله القرآنيّة : (فلمّا أحسّ عيسى منهم الكفر, قال من أنصاري إلى الله , قال الحواريّون نحن أنصار الله آمنا بالله واشهد بانا مسلمون .) 52 آل عمران ( ام كنتم شهداء إذ حضر يعقوب الموت , إذ قال لبنيه ما تعبدون من بعدي , قالوا نعبد إلاهك وإلاه آبائك ابراهيم واسحق إلاها واحدا ونحن له مسلمون . 133 البقرة 4 – كتب الله السماويّة المنزلة على رسل الله يصدّق الأحدث منها الأقدم . ذلك أنّها تنهل من مصدر واحد . فالزبور يصدّق التوراة . والإنجيل يصدّق التوراة والزبور . والقرآن يصدّق التوراة والزبور والإنجيل . وذلك وفقا لما بيّنته آيات القرآن . فها هو رسول الله عيسى ابن مريم يخاطب الناس فيقول : (ومصدّقا لما بين يديّ من التوراة . ولأحلّ لكم بعض الّذي حرّم عليكم .) 50آل عمران - 1 - وخاطب الله رسوله محمد بن عبد الله فقال جلّ شأنه : ( وأنزلنا عليك الكتاب بالحقّ مصدّقا لما بين يديه من الكتاب ومهيمنا عليه . فاحكم بينهم بما أنزل الله ولا تتّبع أهواءهم عمّا جاءك من الحق . لكلّ جعلنا منكم شرعة ومنهاجا .)48المائدة مما يعني بشكل واضح وجليّ وبيّن أنّ كلّ شريعة لا تلغي الشريعة الّتي قبلها , بل تدعمها وتصحح مسار أتباعها الّذين ضلّوا السبيل الصحيح لما أنزل الله . وهذا يستبان من الآية الكريمة : (يا أهل الكتاب , قد جاءكم رسولنا يبين لكم كثيرا مما كنتم تخفون من الكتاب , ويعفوا عن كثير .قد جاءكم من الله نور وكتاب مبين , يهدي به الله من اتّبع رضوانه سبل السلام ويخرجهم من الظلمات إلى النور بإذنه . ويهديهم إلى صراط مستقيم . 15+16 المائدة و قد خاطب الله رسوله محمد بن عبد الله فقال جلّ شأنه : (وكيف يحكّمونك وعندهم التوراة فيها حكم الله ) 43 المائدة ( إنّا أنزلنا التوراة فيها هدى ونور يحكم بها النبيّون الّذين اسلموا للذين هادوا والربّانيّون والأحبار بما استحفظوا من كتاب الله وكانوا عليه شهداء . )44 آل عمران ومثال حيّ على ذلك مراحل التعليم في وقتنا هذا . فالتعليم ابتدأ ببمرحلة واحدة قدرها خمس سنوات . ثمّ بعد حين وجد أن تلك المرحلة لم تعد تواكب حال الناس فأضيفت المرحلة المتوسطّة . والمرحلة المتوسّطة لم تلغ المرحلة الإبتدائيّة , بل دعمتها وتوسّعت بمعلوماتها.ولمّا دعت الحاجة وتطورت المجتمعات أضيفت المرحلة الثانوية للتعليم , ومن ثمّ المرحلة الجامعيّة ولم تلغ الأحدث منها الأقدم بل دعمتها وأضافت عليها . ولذلك فإنّ كافّة الشرائع السماويّة مقبولة عند الله . وسيحاسب كلّ اتباع شريعة وفق ما أنزل الله بكتاب شريعتهم . وحول ذلك جاءت الآية القرآنيّة تقرر : (إنّ الّذين آمنوا والّذين هادوا والنصارى والصابئين من آمن بالله واليوم الآخر وعمل صالحا فلهم أجرهم عند ربّهم ولا خوف عليهم ولا هم يحزنون . 62 البقرة - 2 - ولم يلزم الله أتباع الشرائع السابقة بإتباع الشريعة اللاحقة . ذلك أنّ كلّ الشرائع تنهل من مصدر واحد . وتدعوا لنفس المباديء ولنفس الدين ألا وهو الإسلام . وذلك ما تعبّر عنه آيات القرآن الكريم : (وليحكم أهل الإنجيل بما أنزل الله فيه ) 47 المائدة (قل يا أهل الكتاب لستم على شيء حتّى تقيموا التوراة والإنجيل وما أنزل إليكم من ربّكم ) 68 المائدة فهذا أمر لأهل التوراة والإنجيل أن يحكموا بما أنزل الله في كتبهم ولم يلزمهم بإتباع شريعة القرآن المنزلة بعد شرائعهم . وشدد الله على اتباع الشرائع السماويّة أن يسلكوا طريق الإستقامة في حياتهم الدنيويّة وفي تعاملهم مع الآخرين . فقال جلّ شأنه : (إنّ الّذين قالوا ربّنا الله ثمّ استقاموا , تتنزّل عليهم الملائكة ألاّ تخافوا ولا تحزنوا وابشروا بالجنّة الّتي كنتم توعدون . نحن أولياؤكم في الحياة الدنيا وفي الآخرة ) 31 فصّلت وأمر الله عباده أتباع شريعة القرآن بإحترام أتباع الشرائع السماويّة الأخرى السابقة لشريعة القرآن , والإيمان بها على قدر المساواة مع شريعة القرآن . فقال جلّ شأنه : (قولوا آمنّا بالله وما أنزل إلينا وما أنزل إلى إبراهيم واسماعيل وإسحاق ويعقوب والأسباط وما أوتي موسى وعيسى وما أوتي النبيّون من ربّهم لا نفرّق بين أحد منهم , ونحن له مسلمون .) 136 البقرة تلك هي أخلاق أتباع شريعة القرآن باحترام الناس جميعا على اختلاف أفكارهم وشرائعهم وأخلاقهم , وتقديم المساعدة للمحتاجين لهم أيّا كانوا يتامى أم مساكين أم عابري سبيل . وذلك تنفيذا لتعالبم الله المنزلة بالآية الكريمة : (إنّما الصدقات للفقراء والمساكين والعاملين عليها وفي الرقاب والغارمين وفي سبيل الله وابن السبيل , فريضة من الله ) 60 التوبة ووصف الله عباده المتّقين فقال : (ويطعمون الطعام على حبّه مسكينا ويتيما وأسيرا , إنّا نطعمكم لوجه الله لا نريد منكم جزاء ولا شكورا ) . 9 الإنسان صفحة 3 كما بيّن الله للناس في شريعة القرآن أنّ الناس لهم مطلق الحريّة في أن يؤمنوا بالله أو لا يؤمنوا . غفال جلّ شأنه : (لا إكراه في الدين , قد تبيّن الرشد من الغي . فمن يكفر باالطاغوت ويؤمن بالله فقد استمسك بالعروة الوثقى لا إنقصام لها ) 256البقرة (وقل الحق من ربّكم فمن شاء فاليؤمن ومن شاء فاليكفر ) 29 الكهف ودعا الله الناس أن يفكّروا بعقولهم في كلّ شيء وخاصّة فيما يصلهم عن الله . وأخبرهم أن الله يدعوا دائما للخير وينهى عن الشر . ويدعوا إلى المحبّة والتعاون وينهى عن الأنانيّة . وأخبرهم أنّ البشر جميعهم عيا ل الله , وأن أقرب البشر إلى الله أحبّهم لعياله . ولذلك حض المؤمنين على الصدقات وفرض في أموالهم حق معلوم للسائل والمحروم . وأمر بالإحسان إلى ذي القربى واليتامى والمساكين وابن السبيل وأمر ببر الوالدين . ونهى عن الإعتداء على أرواح الناس أو أموالهم أو ممتلكاتهم . كما حرّم على الخبائث والفواحش وكلّ ما يضرّ بهم , وأباح لهم الطيّبات وأنزل لهم القوانين الّتي تنظم أمور حياتهم ومعاملاتهم مع بعضهم ودعاهم إلى فضائل الخلق وإلى الصدق بالقول والعمل , وأمرهم برد الأمانات إلى أصحابها والعدل بين الناس في الحكم حتى لوكانوا ذوي قربى . وكمثال حيّ على المحبّة بين أتباع الشرائع السماويّة , ها هم سكان مدينة دمشق من بلاد الشام بعد ما حررهم العرب من الحكم الروماني , وبعد أن رأو عدالة وأخلاق أتباع شريعة القرآن , وكيف اعطوا السكان حريّتهم في إدارة شؤونهم وحريتهم في الإعتقاد والتفكير , يتقدّمون للحاكم الأموي بالتبرع بأرض كانت مخصصة لإقامة كنيسة عليها ليقيموا عليها مسجدا لأتباع شريعة القرآن . وأقيم المسجد الأموي الكبير بدمشق في ذلك المكان . هذه أخلاق سكاّن دمشق من أتباع شريعة الإنجيل . وهذه هي اخلاق أتباع شريعة الإنجبل التي أمر الله بها . وها هم سكان مدينة دمشق على اختلاف شرائعهم يعيشون بأمان وسلام إخوانا متحابّين في حيّ واحد وفي كلّ المدن السوريّة منذ أكثر من الف وأربعمائة عام , لا فرق بينهم إلاّ بخلقهم وعملهم . هذه هي أخلاق الشرائع السماويّة . وكل تصرف يقوم به بعض الضالين والجاهلين ليشوهوا به أخلاق شرائع الله السماويّة تتبرأ منه الشرائع السماويّة وهو عدو لها . أمّا اليوم فقد ضلّ كثير من الناس تعاليم الله وإنقادوا خلف دعايات الذين لا يريدون الخير للناس . فاليحذر الناس المنافقين والضالين وليعلموا أنّ الله لا يأمر إلاّ بالخير والمحبّة ومساعدة الناس . -

A public discussion on “Intellectual Approaches to Interfaith Relations in the World”, on February the 2nd, 2013, at the Hercegovina Hall of the Holiday Inn Hotel, from 10:30 to 15:00. Throughout its length, the Bosnian drama has been inextricably involved with the politics and culture of plural societies. Over the past two centuries, the role of religion has been increasingly ignored and denied in European societies. The ideologized world-picture has largely ruled out intellectual approaches to the potential of religion as a harmonizing influence in interpersonal and inter-community relations. The need for religious plurality in all societies is even more evident today that previously and there is an urgent global need for intellectual approaches to religious plurality, particularly in areas where totalitarian interpretations of what it means to be human, what societies are, and of the world generally have been or still are dominant. Any proper vision of the world's future must assume as given the religious plurality of the world's societies. The principal speakers at the discussion will be: Žarko Papić, Marica Petrović, Ivan Šijaković, Krsto Mijanović, Desmond Maurer, Brother Ivo Marković, Rusmir Mahmutćehajić, Mehmedalija Hadžić, David Kamhi, Samir Beglerović and Brother Mile Babić. The disucussion will be moderated by Asim Zubčević, the Chair of the International Forum Bosnia's Centre for Interfaith Dialogue. Participants will make brief introductory statements as an invitation to discuss issues related to religious plurality and taking it seriously in building a better common future. There will be four supplementary programmes: a) An exhibition on “Cultural Memory – A Disappearing Treasure: Bosnia and Herzegovina's Sacred Heritage,” on the 2nd of February, 2013, at the Holiday Inn Hotel, to start at 10:30. The Commission for the Preservation of National Monuments in Bosnia and Herzegovina has organized a number of exhibitions in 2012 under the joint rubric of “Cultural Memory – A Disappearing Treasure.” At this exhibition to mark UN WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK, sinagogues, churches, mosques, monasteries and dervish lodges from Bosnia and Herzegovina will be presented through the medium of photography and descriptions.
