Setting The Record Straight: Was Islam Really Spread By The Sword?

In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, and may peace and prayers be on the Messenger of Allah, Muhammad Ibn Abdel Allah, who was sent with the sword so that Allah and only Allah is worshipped on earth. And peace and prayers be on his (the messenger of Allah) family, companions, and all of those who followed his footsteps.

One of the greatest debates within the Muslim Ummah, one that causes division within the Islamic nation and that is often used by the enemies of Islam as a means of ascribing brutality to our religion is centered on the methods by which Islam was propagated throughout the globe. Was Islam spread by the sword? The quick answer to this question is a resounding yes and in this article, we hope to set the record straight using the evidence from the Qur'an and the Sunnah, the practice of the Guided Caliphs and the consensus of the righteous scholars of the Ummah, inshaAllah. While the evidences in this article are by no means exhaustive, inshaAllah they will be adequate to lay this matter to rest.

Brahma Chellaney on the "new" Iraq approach of Bush and the Neo-cons. I agree that right now all Bush wants to do is hand the hot-potato to his successor.

Balbir Punj has an interesting piece on the Commies ranting about Saddam hanging,
and as always KPS Gill is sharp as a cat on what the Khachar (Sachar) report is really all about
