Nozzi: Medinan verses trump the Meccan ones. Show us some Medinan ones which are tolerant

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: ALLAH ONLY DELEGATES MUSLIMS' RESPONSIBILITY IN PREACHING INSTEAD OF FIGHTING

Submitted by Plato (India), May 18, 2009 at 07:03

Nozzi, you write:

>>…. Quran 36:17 (Yusuf Ali), "And our duty is only to proclaim the clear Message."<<

Verses like the one above were all revealed in Mecca when Muhammad did not have armed men under his command. Read Sura Al Tawba to get a taste of the kinds of verses that were revealed in Median to abrogate the tolerant verses of Mecca.

Regards

Plato
