In chapter 5, Yasir Qadhi invokes the Qur’an and its classical interpretations in order to demonstrate that any notion of religious plurality is scripturally indefensible. As Qadhi clarifies, however, this does not mean that all non-Muslims are damned to Hell: there are exceptions, including those for whom the Islamic message was never made clear. Further, and of critical importance, is his observation that Muslims can reject soteriological pluralism and still foster amicable relations with non-Muslims.
