Intellectual integrity demands an honest answer from my atheist friends. Tell me why these views are not equally valid? “The critics are blind. They cannot see that the only sword Muhammad wielded was the sword of mercy, compassion, friendship and forgiveness—the sword that conquers enemies and purifies hearts. His sword was sharper than the sword of steel”.

“Some people say that Islam was preached by the sword, but we cannot agree with this view. What is forced on people is soon rejected. Had Islam been imposed on people through oppression, there would have been no Islam today. Why? Because the Prophet of Islam had spiritual power, he loved humanity and he was guided by the ideal of ultimate good”.

“Sitting in Medina , Muhammad Sahib (peace be to him) held the Arabs spellbound; he filled them with spiritual strength; strength that makes devtas [gods] out of men… it is incorrect to say that Islam spread with the force of the sword. It is a fact that the sword was never wielded to propagate Islam. If religion can be spread by force then let anyone try it today”..

I wanted to know the best of the life of one who holds sway over the hearts of the millions of mankind today…I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam. It was the rigid simplicity, utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for justice, his intrepidity, his devotion, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and his own mission. How one can deny the genius of Mohammed?
