Syed Rafey: Your reply is in inverted commas:

You have picked up another little bit from my post, namely:

'And by submitting to anyone or anything you get to be a slave not peace.'

"---submitting to anyone in a will full love bring peace. Forced sumbission of soul bring slavery.---"

But forced submission is what Allah and his Rasool want. If you do not repeat the shahada you will burn in hell for ever. Why does Allah threaten hell for remaining an unbeliever. You don't see any force in this?? Syed read these verses and tell me whether Allah is asking for forced submission or not.

003.085 If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah), never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter He will be in the ranks of those who have lost (All spiritual good).

61:9 He it is Who hath sent His messenger with the guidance and the religion of truth, that He may make it conqueror of all religion however much idolaters may be averse
