Religious toleration is one of the main elements in avoiding division and disagreement in different societies. Using a descriptive – analytical approach, the present paper will analyze and examine the prominent examples of toleration in Buyid dynasty. Once the historical aspect of a religious subject is going to be analyzed, certainly the governance of the rulers and monarchs is the best proof of existence of toleration. The ruling system by means of power and authority is able to decline or reinforce toleration. Being perspicacious and perceptive, Buyids could set religious toleration as their priority in political and governmental affairs. Having patience and fortitude toward different religious tendencies, appointing ministers and secretaries from different religions and having relations with neighbor realms, were the big steps of Buyid dynasty toward religious toleration, in dealing with Abbasids. Therefore, Buyids were able to benefit from different thoughts and capacities of society, by employing religious toleration as their policy. In fact, religious toleration led to the Islamic renascence and cultural flowering in Islamic world.
