WHY IS BUILDING OF TEMPLES AND CHURCHES AND PROPAGATING OTHER RELIGIONS PROHIBITED IN SAUDI ARABIA?

Question:

Why is building of temples and churches and the propagation of any religion other than Islam not allowed in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia?

Answer:
1.    Example of selecting a Maths teacher:
        Suppose you are a principal of a school and you have to select a Mathematics teacher. It is obvious that you will interview the candidates. If one teacher says that 2 + 2 = 3, the other says 2 + 2 = 4 and the third says 2 + 2 = 5 whom will you select? Since you know mathematics is logical, you will never select or allow a person to teach mathematics who doesn’t even know the basics of arithmetic that
2 + 2 = 4.
2.    Where religion is concerned Muslims are experts:
        Similarly in the field of religion, Muslims are the best and Qur’an clearly mentions in Surah Ale Imran, Chapter 3, verse 19 (3:19):
        “The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His will)”.
                [Al-Qur’an 3:19]
        It is further mentioned In Surah Ale Imran Chapter 3, verse 85 (3:85)
        “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).”
                [Al-Qur’an 3:85]
3.    No other religious scripture claims that its religion alone is true.
        There is no other religious scripture on the face of the earth besides the Qur’an which says that only its religion is true, correct and acceptable to Almighty God, and that all the other religions are false and hence not acceptable to Almighty God.
        If you are a principal who knows Maths, you will never allow a person to teach Maths in your school who does not know Maths. Similarly we Muslims who are experts in the field of religion and know that Islam is the only true religion, will not allow anyone to preach any other religion besides Islam. We Muslims also know that what the true concept of Almighty God i.e. Allah (SWT) is, and thus we will not permit anyone to build a place of worship where they worship anyone besides Allah (swt).

    1. Call me wahabi or salafi or extremist or whtever
      Truth stands out clear frm error

      Tmmrw someone will come and say I belive killing innocent ppl(wht tmmrw ppl say it in this present time)

      .wld u say tht we shld repect his or her beliefs,wht is wrng is wrng.even if we respect their beliefs if ur a muslim nation you cannot say I respect their beliefs therefore I will allow them to propagate a wrng way of life.

      And the US is not a christan country, its a secular country.

      As in a famous hadith the prophet(pbuh) said if u see something wrong happening, stop it wth ur hand,if u cannot do tht stop it wth ur tongue,if u cant even do tht atleast curse it in ur heart.

      Saudi arabia can stop it physically so they do tht.
      Muslims in non muslim countries can only stop it wth their tongues,they shld do tht,or atleast u can curse it in ur heart.

      Respecting smones belief is fine,u can tell them wht is wrng and wht is right(ofcourse wth hikamh in ur speech and actions),but u have to accept the fact tht wht they belive might be or probably IS false.thus a muslim country cannot allow falsehood to be spread in its land.

      true logic wrks anywhere,it does not depend whether its religion, math science or politics

  5. Mehdi brother US claims itself to be a secular country so each religion can make its claim for its place of worship , whereas Saudi is an officially Islamic Nation . and nobody is forcing anybody to accept Islam , but its the obligation of every muslim to spread the message And there is a thing called as HIDAYAT in Islam,so Allah says spread the message and its upto ALLAh to give HIDAYAT . its his choice who gets it and who doesnt but its a job of a muslim to see that his Non Muslim brothers get the message thts wht he is accountable for . And also in Islam u dont have permission to insult the gods of other religion its strictly forbidden and Try reading books on islamic Hadees from renowed scholars it will enhance your knowledge about Islam .

  6. No, saudi is islamic country thats why they not allow to make temple or churchese.But non muslim can go and learn about islam and what exactly islam tell to world. if all cast go and see the culture and mankind of arabic people then they can understand islam never allow to fight with other like terrorist...Muslim means- The person who carry his life on the way of Mohammed PROPET. and never make troble for people, talkin very sweetly,teaching all people about islam,and explain what is exactly musalman means.

  7. @ mehedi

    Because, USA itself is not sure about GOD which they following is true GOD or not.. hence they allow all religions to propagate.

    In Saudi they are quite sure about TRUE GOD and they don't know any self man made theories..

  8. the most screwed example ever ............ man didnt even think zakir naik would give such flawed logic........... simply because i think other religions are not true i will not allow them to practice their religion.......... screw him.......... all three of the puritanical rreligions calim that they are the only true religion whether their scripture tells them or not.................and by the way in quran too islam being the only source of salvation is extremely debatable..............

  9. @cheeko

    ur knowledge abt religion is a bit low in all religions there is a mention of Prophet Mohammed (saw)as a last and final messenger Jejus(pbuh) never preached christianity, actually he nvr heard of this word in his whole life......and regarding ur last line answer is already posted above(reproducing)

    “If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).”
    [Al-Qur’an 3:85]

    dont get confused ITS NOT THE MOSQUE which is proposed to be build that too "2BLOCKS AWAY FROM GROUND ZERO"......actually its islamic center with facility to offer salah.........


    We muslims didnt askd or demanded to build the same.....its a preplanned move to create controversy and take people away from real issues like Palestine and war crimes...

  11. well i totally agree the above given exapmles on why KSA doesnt allow building church or other non muslims worship place and besdie this there are few more reasons, 1) If any muslim want to built mosque in vatican or any other non muslims worship sacred places they wont allow to built it similary Mecca , Medina and whole KSA is a sacred place thats why they dont allow. 2) there are many weird and unacceptable rituals in non muslim religions which could harm the communal harmony of the country...and many more reasons.
