Islam Critiqued: No Compulsion in Religion?

Postby Prismatic567 » Thu Feb 21, 2019 7:10 am

When jihadis or critics of Islam quote the clear commands of Allah and Muhammad to violently subjugate the entire world, Muslim apologists point to Surah 2, verse 256 of the Quran, which asserts that "there is no compulsion in religion."

But does this verse mean what Westernized Muslims think that it means?
Does Islam condemn violence and terrorism?

Did Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, promote religious tolerance?
The Islam Critiqued channel discusses the issue.
