98:1 Dear abid,

Is it what still believed by muslims? Unfortunetly if so, its in contrast to peace in the world.

Those who disbelieved from among the followers of the Book and the polytheists could not have separated (from the faithful) until there had come to them the clear evidence: 98:2 An apostle from Allah, reciting pure pages, 98:3 Wherein are all the right ordinances. 98:4 And those who were given the Book did not become divided except after clear evidence had come to them. 98:5 And they were not enjoined anything except that they should serve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience, upright, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, and that is the right religion. 98:6 Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men. 98:7 (As for) those who believe and do good, surely they are the-best of men. 98:8 Their reward with their Lord is gardens of perpetuity beneath which rivers flow, abiding therein for ever; Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him; that is for him who fears his Lord.

9:5So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
