This is a very common misconception and the truth is that Islam is against war. History shows that they will only embark on war if attacked and will only attack if the enemy is constantly harming their nation.The best reply to the misconception that Islam was spread by the sword is given by the noted historian De Lacy O’Leary in the book “Islam at the cross road” (Page 8): “History makes it clear however, that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping through the world and forcing Islam at the point of the sword upon conquered races is one of the most fantastically absurd myth that historians have ever repeated.”
