Finally, what does the last revealed chapter of Islam’s holy book have to offer the world ? The answer is nothing but antagonism. Muhammad ordered expeditions even from his death-bed. The activities of his followers including the four rightly-guided caliphs were constricted chiefly into invading nation after nation and establishing Islamic states all over the invaded lands. Thus Islam can fairly be called coercive, expansionist and imperialistic - ironically, some common smears hurled at the West by many modern Muslims (who are thereby guilty of ''hypocrisy'' - yet another choice complaint). Words followed by actions speak much louder here. Muhammad , the founder of Islam, could never envision a non-violent , just world where members of all faiths would live a peaceful co-existence . Rather, he was driven with a virulent lust for domination. His words “There will always be a group in his community of believers that are dominant over infidels” reveals how it is impossible for Muslims to envision peace. An ideology stuck in a certain backdrop of history where killing and subjugating others in the name of religion had been made legal by divine dictations can never bring peace to the world . If it was intended for peace, Allah shouldn’t have revealed his last words coated in blood.
