one thing comes to mind.

These days its the time and age of media so any news/message is spread through this medium. Old days sword was the only medium. Look at history muslims always (almost always) acted in the interest of national security they did not attack. Now tell how many nations/people converted cuz they were attacked.

There are lots of people who converted Muslim in recent days. I believe every day people are accepting Islam. I think there should be no doubt that all new Muslims accepted Islam due to its reality not by the sword.

You cant spread Islam by the sward, assume somebody come to you and says “accept the Christianity or be ready to die” might be that time you accept the Christianity but soon after you would come back to normal (old religious) because you accept the Christianity due to fear of death.

Therefore its not true that Islam spread by the sword.

Islam is a living relegion. It is, trully, more then a relegion. I can't say more about it now but adding to the topic I would like to say that Islam is not spread by sward but it is spread under a sword. The majority of early Muslims were hurt by Kufars. There lives where in danger, they where in hands of non-Muslims but still they accepted Islam. Non-Muslims had athority rather then Muslims. Where Muslims forcing people (having no power) to accept Islam? No.

The other example is Mangoles. Those monsters of deserts who killed people with no mercy. Muslims lost every thing when they faced Mangols but what happened next. Islam won the war and all mangol rulers became Muslims one by one. Those who killed Muslims where now Muslims. There are many examples where the "SWARD" was in hands of "ACCEPTER" not the MUSLIMS. So we can prowdly say that Islam spread for itself and not only that it also protected us, the Muslims, From many dangers.

If any one have seen the movie "ISLAM - the nation of faith", please tell me how is it? because I have seen a little and CD was crashed.
It is purely about this topic. They present pacts that Islam was not spread by sward. They also said that soon Islam will be the world's greatest relegion.
