You cannot deny the fact that Islam was
and still is a religion of warfares and killing. The advent of Islam is from wars and we can see its impact on our societies in modern days. Hold on a second – let me ask you something. You said: “Advent of Islam is from wars.” When did the first armed conflict took place?
Any idea? Ummm .. first battle.. hmm! Mecca.. Medina.. Ummm .. he went to Mecca from there.. Forget about it.
Let me ask you another question. If you’ve got a chance to study the biography of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)… .. even some summarized biography then you’ll come to know about the years he spent on this earth after the claimant of his Prophethood. Ummm.. I think 15 or 20 or 25 or 30 .
My wildguess will be 15-30 years. He walked on this earth for 23 years after his claimant of prophethood. Okay
— Alright? Spent 13 years in Mecca
and 10 years in Medina Whilst he was in Mecca (13 years) no warfare happened. When he migrated to Medina still no warfare happened out of a sudden. After 02 years of migration to Medina, meaning on the 15th year of his prophethood the first battle took place. Now, where did the first battle take place?
Any idea? Most probably inside Medina
– That’s right, inside Medina. That means He and his followers weren’t the attackers rather they were defenders. Doesn’t a victim has a right to defend him or
herself when they’re attacked? Right, I get it but..
– So it proves that first battle that took place was for defense. Therefore, its a VERY poor claim that the advent and rise of Islam is from warfare or by killing the adversaries. A man who lived 23 years after his first revelation from God. In those 23 years he started his first battle after 15 years .. and a battle that took place in defense. Then how can you claim that Islam started with warfare? Very poor!
