Zayed's Legacy Of Tolerance

The distinguishing features of the founding father, Sheikh Zayed, may God rest his soul "He was tolerant with himself and calls all people around him to be tolerate themselves, accept others and coexist with them regardless of their colors, religions or beliefs using his compassionate fatherly style , wisdom , and pleasant words that he says with ease and spontaneity to affect the hearts and minds of the listeners. Thus creating a rich and inexhaustible legacy of love, tolerance and compassion. Accordingly he sends a strong message to the rulers of the world shows that the real leadership is not only for political and economic gains, but is to establish the values of love , coexistence and peace among people.

Allah says in Surah Al-Hujurat:

"O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted"

This verse symbolizes UAE's slogan in its march to enhance tolerance and in its approach to instil the values of moderation, peace and nonviolence. UAE has followed the light of good and love that the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan had left behind, which left a great influence that incubates all humans with no division nor discrimination.


The Monastery of Sir Bani Yas in UAE, which dates back to the 7th century AD, is a shining example of the Arab environment's incubation to the values of tolerance, openness and acceptance of the other, despite the differences of religion, culture and belief. The late Sheikh Zayed saw such monastery, as one of the cultural civilized landmarks that highlights the historical depth of man, and the features that marked the ancient communities settled-in the region, which their history is still embodied until today. The late Sheikh Zayed had consistently affirmed that tolerance is a deep-rooted historical value in UAE and it is not accidental or urgent matter. This was according to Sheikh Zayed's deep understanding of the best manifestations of Islam in the relation with the other and their mutual interact, inspiring our civilization, which fostered the worship places, its assets and people.
