I wish to share with you this video which clarifies a lot of misconceptions people have about Islam.
The youtube channel also has a lot of other videos which explains a few things about Islam. To me Islam is a religion of peace and solace only found in God. I have looked into various religions including Bahaism and Christianity and Judaism, but I have always come back to Islam.
I am grateful for my Christian friends who also give me great comfort and support during hard times I had and the advice they gave me or the advice I give them is no different, that we should trust in God. So I see all Christians, Jewish, Hindu, Atheist as my brothers and sisters as we all originate from Adam and Eve, so lets respect each other till we return to God.
Despite what Atheists say, religion is of peace and it is people not GOD that make it appear violent.
