Conversion by the Sword

Anyone know any verses from the Koran supporting this?

Thankie kindly:cool:

Read Robert Spencer’s latest book which has in the back and very long list of the differences between Christianity and Islam and covers in depth many of the violent verses of the Koran. The latest book is being promoted by CAF.

Qur’an (9:29) - “Fight those who believe not
in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that
forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah
and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the
religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the
People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya
with willing submission, and feel themselves

In addition to the Quranic verse above, Islam indeed spread through the sword from early Muhammad’ days till the Ottoman empire, however, in early days, for certain parts of India, Indonesia, etc, Islam spread through the merchandisers and not the sword, however, nowadays the spread of Islam in the west (US, Canada, UK, etc) is not through the sword but through taking advantage of the secular faithless culture through lectures, schools, etc., since Islam is in" weak status" no country dare to declare Jihad against those secular countries.

Sam, you are the best. likewise, Islam is spreading in the west because of so called “tolerance” of the west and misinformation about so called “peacefulness” of Islam.

Of course you can’t spread Islam by the sword when you are weak! Why you think in Quran the ayats when Mohamed was in Mekkah were peaceful and the ones of Medina were violent?
