This is because disease spread faster than cure.

Has noboby ever thought how come all of a sudden,a man sitting in a cave hear some voices and think it is God. Muhammed himself thoght he might be crazy but his uncle told him that no it was the divine spirit that spoke to you- so how credible is this religion? how strong is the belief of islam when he leans on the shoulders of the religions to convert its followers and propagate?

If there is really Allah- how can a God preach hatred in its Quran? no true God should tell its believers to hate any type of person because of their race and belief, there must be some major flaws somewhere here? Muhammed is a person who created a religion to suit his ways of living. he didnt like pigs so it was haram. He liked women so he made it that man can marry 4 times. Muhammed had 9 wives. He even married his son wife who he found very pretty. His son divorced her "as per the religion" so that his father can have her. And he also married a 9 year old girl. How do one explain this? Is there any righteousness in all this?

Going back to the history of islam, there fame has been achieved by a past of kiilings and conquering countries by face? Muhammed decendance was not done by some divine spirit but by the peaple deciding who will be more appropriate to lead on.

I just want to know how credible the creator of islam himself is? How strong is his beliefs and why did he have go to round asking people to believe him. Or maybe was he not just somewhat unstable and made up stories for him to have an easy life? because nowhere can i see the sacrifices that he made himself. All i see are the sacrifices that he made others do.
