Tolerance in UAE

FRUIT OF WISE LEADERSHIP'S SUPPORT

UAE, its leadership and people represent a combination of tolerance, harmony, respect and acceptance of others. Tolerance is one of the deep-rooted values in the genuine community of UAE, which are derived from the moderation of the True Islam, the noble Arab customs and traditions, and from the wisdom and legacy of Zayed Al Khair. The National Tolerance Program will work on establishing these values and developing frameworks that support its continuity under a wise leadership that believes in building the human and humanity development.

UAE is an incubator of the values of tolerance, peace, security and multiculturalism, with more than 200 nationalities enjoying decent life and respect. Accordingly, the laws of UAE guaranteed justice; respect and equality, besides it incriminated hatred, fanaticism, and causes of division and difference.

UAE'S ROLE AS A KEY PARTNER IN SUPPORTING INTERNATIONAL EFFORTS OF PEACE AND TOLERANCE

UAE is a key partner in several international conventions and treaties related to the renouncement of violence, extremism and discrimination. UAE has become a global capital, where civilizations of East and West converge to enhance peace and rapprochement among all peoples.

UAE incubates several churches and temples that allow individuals to practice their religious rites. Moreover, UAE has several international initiatives that instil the world security and peace and achieve decent living for all.

As a practical application of the principle of tolerance, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, ordered renaming the Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Mosque in Al Mushrif, to 'Mariam, Umm Eisa' — Arabic for ‘Mary, the mother of Jesus "Peace be upon them". This was to establish humanitarian relations among religions' followers, which our true religion and the commonalities among divine religions have urged us to adopt.

The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for World Peace is one of the most prestigious awards in this field. It emerges from the tolerant Islamic teachings and reflects the meanings of tolerance and moderation, in addition to its role in creating communication channels with all peoples to promote international relationships and achieve the world peace.
