Coffee Shops as Interfaith Spaces: Bridging Divides and Embracing Inclusivity
Keywords:Coffee shops, Interfaith spaces, Inclusivity, Transformative role
This study explores the transforming function of coffee shops as interfaith venues, encouraging unity, understanding, and inclusivity among people of all religious origins. Coffee shops serve as neutral spaces for meaningful conversations and shared experiences, breaking down preconceptions and developing tolerance. They have the power to bridge religious divisions, stimulate social change, and foster a culture of tolerance and inclusion. Overcoming difficulties through technology, education, and digital literacy can continue and increase the role of coffee shops in fostering interfaith conversation and promoting unity. This study, conducted using qualitative study methods in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, gives unique insights into interfaith dynamics and the potential of coffee shops as catalysts for inclusivity.
