Islam is the light

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: Nura, a new History of Islam

Submitted by Nura (United States), Feb 13, 2009 at 16:52

Every land (57 countries) was attacked and taken by Muslims.

Every land? Where are your sources!

What forced conversions? You should take a history lesson. There were no forced conversions. The greatest evidence of this is the Jaziya, a tax for Christians and Jews, and the fact that Mecca was taken PEACEFULLY. The most peaceful take over in history and if you have a better example than this, a peaceful takeover of a city, I'd like to know.

he instigated over 70 wars, robbing, murdering hundreds of thousands of citizens and taking complete control of Saudi Arabia.

Let's see where this information came from. It's pathetic how much people like you have to resort to lies. It's actually flattering.

Muhammad passed away in 632AD. In 638AD, Islam began the war against the world. By 711AD, Muslims had conquered Israel, Egypt, all of North Africa and invaded and conquered Spain. When they attacked France, they were defeated. Since 711AD, Islam has been at war with the world, why, because the world belongs to Islam, the Qur'an says so. No country chose Islam as a religion for their nation, rather they became Muslims, when they were defeated by Muslims and forced to accept Islam as the only new religion

...The Middle East and North Africa is not "The world". Secondly, There were are no instructions from the Quran or the Sunnah(hadith), for Muslims to conquer the world. The instructions giving to Muhammed (PBUH) to fight against disbelievers were isolated to his enemies in Arabia. I would say that the world has been at war with Islam.

Lastly, Islam does not need forced conversions. The religion is strong enough to indoctrinate masses of people are we are seeing in present times despite anti-Islamic propaganda. The Quran says" Let there be no compulsion in religion," this statement from Allah is very clear that NO ONE can be forced to become Muslim. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!

Nura, instead of focusing on America becoming a nation of Islam, and studying the Qur'an, I would suggest that you study history. Should you do that study, you may understand why Islam is such a... religion.

I have taken more history classes than you can count. I actually love history; this is why I focus on it so much in debates. It speaks for itself. The problem is, most people forget history and only focus of the affect instead of the cause of conflict.

I have been Muslim 17 years and love Islam more than the 1st day. I doubt that further study would turn me away.
