There is no compulsion in religion, is it?!
According to more than 90% of the Quran there shall be no compulsion in religion. That’s good and makes sense because religion itself cannot be proved or disproved so any kind of applying force to implement any particular religion is utterly nonsense.
Religion is based on belief and belief itself is so weak and fragile that in your personal experience if you look back you can see so many times in your life your own beliefs or hopes were shattered.
You believed something but in reality it was happened something else; so many times that happened already in your life!
So, based on belief (religion), you can never force anybody if you have little bit of honesty and commonsense.
[The holy Quran 2:256] There shall be no compulsion in religion: the right way is now distinct from the wrong way. Anyone who denounces the devil and believes in GOD has grasped the strongest bond; one that never breaks. GOD is Hearer, Omniscient.
[10:99] Had your Lord willed, all the people on earth would have believed. Do you want to force the people to become believers?
[6:107] Had GOD willed, they would not have worshiped idols. We did not appoint you as their guardian, nor are you their advocate.
But you see here [9:29] it says it is OK and even necessary to force people for religion! Most of the blind believers claim that there is no contradiction in the Quran!
Almost all blind believers of Bible also claim so despite the fact that there are many contradictions in the Bible too! Are those people ignorant of Quran or do they deliberately hide and overlook those Quranic verses such as [9:29]?
[9:29] You shall fight the ones among those who received the scripture who do not believe in God, nor in the Last Day, nor do they prohibit what God and His Messenger have prohibited, nor do they abide by the religion of truth, until they pay the due tax with their own hands and be humbled.
So if anybody asks “is there no compulsion in religion?” a Muslim’s answer could be both “yes” and “no” even according to the Quran alone!
Ancient Arabs, especially ancient Arabs rulers and kings most probably contaminated the true Islamic religion for their own benefits and ambitions!
