Asalaamu alaykum to all the mumi'neen.

I would like to say congratulations for proving my point that prejudice against Islam has existed for a long long time. Everyone seems to think Islam is a violent religion! Where is the proof that Islam forcefully converted non-Muslims in the day of the phrophet(s.a.w)? Just because history say Islam is a violent religion doesn't mean it is.

Look at the example of the Romans and Celts. The Romans were remembered in history as liberators whilst the Celts were remembered as barbarians. Not many people know that the Roman Empire re-wrote history for their own benefits, they were themselves the Barbarians - this is a well known fact among historians. No-one in this forum can deny this and show me evidence otherwise. So how do you not know people fabricated parts of history to show Islam in a negative light. Not much RELIABLE evidence of Islamic violence exist within that era. Yes, there might have been wars but that doesn't necessarily mean the inhabitents were mistreated.

As for Genesis, look carefully my friend and understand the bible before you speak. I myself have read this;

"Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so." THEN

"Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the sky to give light on the earth."

THANK YOU
