Tolerance can be developed by the thoughts that is formed from the understanding of concepts. Developing the true concept of tolerance is a necessity so that it can be used as a guideline for Muslims in Indonesia in order to there is no lie between us which can cause astray. Implementation of tolerance according our beliefe is part of worship that is guaranteed by constitution. Violations the principles of tolerance besides being sanctioned by the state law, also can be sanctioned by religion as a form of denial of God. The measuring of the truth in this concept does not improve on a subjective human perspective but restoring to God as a source of truth. This paper was writen to elaborate some principles of religious tolerance (al-tasâmuh) under Islamic perspective which are derived from al-qur’an and al-sunnah. This theme is important to be discussed academically, because in the reality there are practices of intolerant behavior (‘adam al-tasâmuh) which distrupt the social harmony and national security of state. At the same time, we know that in fact there are behaviors of excessive tolerant (al-tasâmuh al-mufrit) which leads to religious mixing whose according the law is prohibited (haram). To elaborate this papers, writers have used a normative approach for mapping some principles in field of worship and public affairs containing permissions and restrictions to develope the concept of tolerance without mortgaging our beliefs.
