Islam IS the solution. History has shown this. Look at the example of the Prophet Muhammad saws. Look at the final and most serious battle in his life, the retaking of Makkah, how did the muslims enter the people who fought and killed their brethren? When Umar ibn al-Khattab entered Jerusalem. When Salahuddin entered Jerusalem. What did the Muslims do when they took over Spain and ruled it for close to a thousand years? How did the Christians and the Jews live under Muslim rule in?
Dr. Bart Ehrman currently serves as the chairman of the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He was the President of the Southeast Region of the Society of Biblical Literature, and worked closely as an editor on a number of the Societys publications. Currently, he co-edits the series New Testament Tools and Studies. Dr. Bart Ehrman began studying the Bible and its original languages at the Moody Bible Institute and is a 1978 graduate of Wheaton College in Illinois. He received his Ph.D and M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary, where he studied under Bruce Metzger. Ehrman became an Evangelical Christian as a teen. His desire to understand the original words of the Bible led him to the study of ancient languages and to textual criticism, which in turn demolished his faith in the Bible as the inerrant word of god. He is now agnostic.
Siraj Wahhaj - Messenger for 21st century
Siraj Wahhaj (English: Bright light; born as Jeffrey Kearse) is an African-American Muslim convert to Islam and public speaker in North America. He is the Imam of Al-Taqwa mosque in Brooklyn, New York. In 1988 he led his community in an anti-drug patrol in which they staked out drug houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant in the cold of winter for forty days and nights, forcing the closure of fifteen drug houses. This effort received high praise from the NYPD. In 1991 Siraj offered an invocation (opening prayer) to the United States House of Representatives. He was the first Muslim to do so
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat:
In 1986, the King Faisal Foundation awarded the King Faisal International Prize for SERVICE TO ISLAM, to a South African who is more or better known than many dignitaries in their own countries. This was the first time that this prestigious award has been awarded to a South African. The recipient of this award was a man totally dedicated to his faith and its propagation and who was not afraid to challenge any one to a debate to settle once and for all the matter, who has the good news right? He was none other than Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, reverently known and called UNCLE by those who hold him in high esteem and admiration.
