Religious diversity or plurality is a necessity, for it is a source of inspi-ration to learn from what is taught and what values are good for humankind. Understanding the teachings of each religion can eliminate the truth claims of religion and good religious teachings that are worthwhile and maslahah/ helpful for others can be implemented in everyday life. Religion should not only be seen at the level of theology but also in actions of its adherents. Ac-tions of religious believers can be done through a dialectic with the public good, personal and universal. Dialectics is not limited to dialogue but must be translated into concrete actions. Human thought is a major foothold for analyzing the conditions of people in a situation of (religious) diversity. The action which is good and true based on religious teachings can create a sense of love and benefit people. Ummatan wahidatan is a manifestation of human values. Religious believers should reflect on other religions which can be ex-amples of religions’ goodness. One should recognize and understand plural-ism as a real action. Understanding pluralism means recognizing and human-izing human beings through human values. Human reasoning is the main tool to view and generate concrete actions through a comprehensive interreligious dialogue
