It involves promoting understanding between different religions to increase acceptance of others, rather than to synthesize new beliefs. The objectives of the study were to examine the existing level of interfaith tolerance among students, to find the effect of classroom activities on the tolerance level of students and to confirm that teaching according the Islam increases the interfaith tolerance level of the students.
