In my viewpoint, interfaith is the understanding of various religious beliefs from the viewpoint of individuals of other religious beliefs. By attempting to comprehend others who think in various religious beliefs and the faith itself, misconceptions and disputes in between individuals of various religious beliefs can be prevented. Understanding others’ beliefs does not imply that you think in the very same thing, however for me, it indicates that you are consenting to appreciate each other by producing a serene environment for all
