Our Approach

Bahrain Interfaith Center seeks to promote inter-religious harmony, rather than unity.The problem with seeking unity among religions and sects is the risk of loss of the unique and precious character of each individual religious and spiritual tradition; this understanding is key to our framework.

Inter-religious harmony, on the other hand, is an attainable and highly desirable goal. Such an approach respects, and is enriched by, the particularities of each tradition.

Moreover, within each tradition are the resources (philosophical, theological and spiritual teachings and perspectives) that enable each to enter into respectful, appreciative and cooperative relationships with persons and communities of other traditions.
