Again and again, I hear Muslim apologists claim that the Qu'ran forbids any compulsion in one's choice of religion. Apparently, though, this is a one-way door, for someone who is seen to be a Muslim cannot convert to another faith without much threat of compulsion. The following two responses are irreconcilable to me, prompted by a question from a young girl wanting to convert from Islam to Christianity.
FREEDOM OF RELIGION:
"(Say to the unbelievers) To you be your Way, and to me mine." (The Noble Quran, 109:6)
"Say, 'The truth is from your Lord': Let him who will believe, and let him who will reject it:.." (Noble Quran, 18:29)
"Let there be no compulsion in religion..." (Noble Quran 2:256)
ISLAM IS AGAINST VIOLENCE:
"But if the enemy incline towards peace, thou shall also incline towards peace, and trust in God: for He is One that heareth and knoweth (all there is)." (Noble Quran, 8:61)
"Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors. (The Noble Quran, 2:190)"
"God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers. (The Noble Quran, 60:8)
i cannot believe, thant you want to do this!
can you not see that very many people these days convert to islam?
people realise it is the only right religion, you should be happy about what you are.
and to be honest i would blame your parents because they have not brought you up as a proper muslim.
and if you think that everything you are doing is a sin, then you should try to see what you should do about it...read the qur'an! go to the mosque. and stop doing all the foolish things like showing bits of your body, not praying, "thinking you are christian"....
i am ashamed for you.
you should ask for forgiveness because Allah will never forgive you if you convert! you will go to hell!
i do not know what to do with people like you, i just dont understand how i can help you, because you are mentallly disabled.
and yes allah will not be happy with you but no-one know hwta he will do to you, but you will pay for it if you convert.
Anyone care to shed some light on this?
