Abstract:From 6-10 April 2014 the Sokoto State branch of the Nigeria Association of Teachers of Arabic and Islamic Studies (NATAIS) played host to the thirty-second Annual National Conference, the main theme of which was interpretation of Arabic and Islamic Studies texts and religious tolerance. Various papers were presented in the two official languages of NATAIS: Arabic and English. In this collective volume thirty-two of these papers are included. Subjects include the Islamic concept of tolerance and peaceful co-existence, the Islamic ruling on religious tolerance, and the Islamic recipe for curbing extremism. Other subjects are the non-Muslims attitude to Arabic and Islamic texts, Orientalist views about the Qur'an, and the relevance of the conflict management and resolution principles of the Prophets Daud and Sulaiman in contemporary times. The authors explain the efforts of past and contemporary Arabic and Islamic scholars in the impeccable interpretation of the Qur'an, just as the Islamic respect for other religions and Islamic concepts of religious freedom.
