so that when you come up with an objection aginst it, it will try to absorb its impact by wishywahying. No it wil not do that!

In fact Islam is not here to appease anyone. When it decides upon a matter, it is the last word.

if this sounds harsh what can i say? What will you say to a person who insists that earth is flat.

Jehad is not the holy war. There is no holy war in islam, no war is good. The word that you are looking for is qital. permission was given to fight for self-defense.

You must have heard that there is no compulsion in religion. In fact there is even more good news.

it says those who believe and the jews and the christians and sabeans and any one who believes in God and the hereafter and does good works will have his reward...(2:62, 5:69)

There is a saying of the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that means that if a man dies knowing that there is only one God, he will enter the Garden.
