Reader comment on item: Conversions in Israel
in response to reader comment: War against non-believers

Submitted by fareed (Sri Lanka), Jun 11, 2010 at 15:28

"If it has been your Lord's wish, they all would have believed, all who are on earth. Will you then compel people against their will to believe? But no soul would have believed except by the permission of God, for he has set disgrace upon those who will not use their reason." (10:99-100)

So, there is no proof that the Muslims had waged wars to convert people to Islam and there are number of countries that can be cited as willingly, consciously and lovingly accepted Islam, for instance Indonesia or Afghanistan both were Buddhist countries and believed in no creator God and another example is that India was ruled by Muslims for nearly 1000 years and still it remains an Hindu country. Muslims never forced anyone to Islam but disbelievers are warned and advised to consider the Qur'an carefully.
