No Compulsion in Religion

Whenever it is brought up about how Muslims force people into their religion and don’t allow freedom, many of them will say “You are basing this on the media.  It is not true!” or some variation on that theme.

They will then continue by citing the following verse in the Qur’an: “Let there be no compulsion  in religion: truth stands out clear from error: whoever rejects evil and believes in God hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks.  And God heareth and knoweth all things.” (Surah 2:256)

The verse above is from the Yusuf Ali translation(the most popular translation of the Qur’an).  Now Muslims will insist that see our religion allows you to be free!  If someone were to point out the other verses of the Qur’an which promote slavery, rape, violence, etc. etc. etc. – which MOST of the Qur’an does – you’ll probably get called out by Muslims for “cherry-picking” and “reading it out of context”.  But that’s a bit of a stretch – because it’s the Muslims who are taking this ONE verse and implying that this one verse represents the whole of Islam.

The fact of the matter is, apostasy is met with death.  If you drink alcohol you are met with fierce violence in the form of being whipped 40 to 80 times.  Slavery is accepted in Islam.  Having sexual relations with slave girls is accepted, which in essence we are talking about RAPE. The fact of the matter is the Qur’an is a political document written by men.  It does not promote the well being of anyone other than to revere Mohammad.  It says one thing and then a hundred different times says the exact opposite and is demonstrated throughout Islamic law. No compulsion in religion?  Maybe, in some, but in Islam you are not free.
