Peace or war?

Reader comment on item: Uncovering Early Islam
in response to reader comment: Dearth of Islamic dawah?

Submitted by Ibn Ismail (South Africa), Jun 10, 2012 at 13:33

Islam is as religion of peace and war, peaceful to goodness and at war with falsehood and oppression. Many Muslims are confused regarding this aspect, not all. Islam was spread through invitation, the sword was against those who refused to allow Islam from being spread.
