This paper discusses the Qur’anic term of Ahsan al-Qawl as a basic linguistic concept of language role in interreligious communication in order to identify the meanings of (inter)religious communication based on the Qur’an and to construct the appropriate model in analysing interreligious discourse.The connection of the term with language use and language practice in interreligious communication will be discussed.The findings show that the principles of interreligious communication are mostly based on the God-man relation, and also the man-man-nature relation. These relations clearly distinguish the meanings of religious communication in the Islamic perspective from the Western perspective.
