If more people thought like this, the world would be a much more peaceful place:

"An individual, must, of course, perform his duties in accordance with his conviction as to what constitutes the correct interpretation, but he must do so in all humility, acknowledging that if indeed his interpretation happens to be the correct one he cannot know this with perfect assurance until the life to come. For this reason, he is not entitled in life to castigate those who hold different views, for if the view of another happens to be incorrect but that person sincerely believes it to be correct, God will forgive the incorrectness and consider the duty fulfilled. No sin has occurred." (from Bernard Weiss on Ibn Taymiyya, a 13th and 14th century Muslim theologian and jurist)
