please I request you all to be calm. Just by reading some passages from the Quran listed in anti islamic website with wrong interpretations doesnt give any one any right to say negative things about Islam.

If you want to really know what the Holy Quran says then you must go to a muslim to get the knowledge (correct one). People place allegations that Islam was spread by the sword...if that is true then why the hell are so many people acception it today without any violence why is it the fastest growing religion TODAY. GIVE IT A LITTLE THOUGHT.

People say islam doesnt let women free (does not let them wear half naked cloths). Well I ask you do you know what does bible say about womens cloth. It states that if a woman does not cover her head THEN SHAVE OF HER HEAD. You will never find such a statement in the Quran. What my point is that every religion tells their followers to cover up their bodies. If you look at the pictures of Mother Mary she is always shown dressed EXECTLY like a muslim does today. I ask you WHY.

iSLAM NEVER TOLD WOMEN TO NOT BE FREE. In fact it gives them protection. It tells its male followers to go out and provide for your mother daughter wife etc. Why is it that so many WOMEN from different religions are accepting Islam if it is so hard on them. THINK ABOUT IT. aS FOR THE VERSES OF THE QURAN telling to fight or kill the enemy for that go and get the correct information from a muslim or a mosque. If you go to an anti islamic source then ofcoarse you can expect what they will tell you.

There are some muslims who act arrogantly but you can not blam the whole Islam for that. For e.g in the west almost every single person is commiting adultry but I can not blam Christianity for that because even as a muslim I do know that Christianity condems adultry. Christianty condemas gay sex etc but look at the western community now they even have legall gay marriages and because of that look at what people are suffering from DEADLY DISEASES. WITH NO CURE yet. Even as muslims we love Jesus Christ.For us to be a muslim we have to believe in Jesus and follow him YES FOLLOW HIM. We believe him to be a servent of God. We believe in his miraculous birth. Now you all didnt have any idea about that did you? So for your correct information I would AGAIN suggest you to go and get information from a reliable source.

Pease be to you all.
