Submitted by mohammad waqas (Pakistan), Aug 7, 2007 at 09:29

The first reason given by Daniel Pipes is wrong that there is no religion in Macca . In Macca people had been worshiping Idols for thousands of years and they opposed Islam with all the means they can . similarly there were Judaic influence of a great deal in that society. the true reason why Islam spread in that society is that it has all the solutions of the problems the society is facing at that time and even today it has all the solutions of the problems both the west and other parts of the world .

secondly Daniel Pipes said that it spread in poor due to zakat, so i wanted to tell him that zakat is for the poor its true, but its not essential that the poor has to be a muslim. even non muslims of that society can benefit from it, so its wrong to say that due to attraction of zakat poor people convert to Islam .

thirdly, Daniel Pipes said that due to discrimination of color Islam spread in Blacks. so for his information i want to tell him that islam totally ignores the value of race , colour , riches, country or any other material thing and according to Islam there is no preference of a black over a white and a white over a black. the only criteria in islam which makes one person greater in value is its faith and good deeds even if he is a king or a beggar .

fourth, people that are converting to islam in them you will find people who have utmost knowledge of Christianity , or any other religion . and people that convert to Islam usually do that after a thorough study of all the major religions and it touches their hearts by the help of QURAN and the main reason why they do so is that they find Islam the most complete and comprehensive religion among all others and also becouse it has solutions of all their question, problems as its the only religion after Prophet Mohammad PBUH that will be acceptable in front of God at the day of judgment .
