Ever since the advent of Islam to this world, Islam faced many challenges from its foes, that is, the disbelievers. The disbelievers want to extinguish Islam and its foundation from this world. However, Allah will always protect Islam as a religion of Allah (al-deen) on this earth.

As before in the olden days, currently Islam is facing various challenges from secularism, other religions, atheism, modernism, liberalism, pluralism, deviationists etc. The non-Muslims

For example, they described Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a robber gang, a clan leader who suppressed others, a sexual pervert, loved sex, forced people to convert to Islam by sward etc. This was far cry from the truth. They degraded Islamic culture and Islamic rituals. They also misrepresented about history of Islam. In reality, they forgot that Islam brought civilisation to them through Spain and other European countries because for many centuries they were under the Muslim rule. Before Islamic enlightenment came to Europe, they were ignorant and lived under Dark …show more content…
Polarisation of Religions
Polarisation of religions is between three great religions of the world, namely the Jewish, Christian and Islam. Each of them claimed that theirs is the right one. Notwithstanding, the religion of Islam is the chosen religion by Allah brought down through His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The people of the Scriptures or Books (Jews and Christians) respectively had adulterated their Books (Old Testament and New Testament). Their Books rescinded by Allah when Islam and al-Quran brought down to this world. Thus, the Jews and the Christians despised Islam.
The conflict among them will never end until doomsday. The conflict is synonym with the clash of civilisations. The crux of the whole things is that the Muslims believe in Monotheism of Allah, all the prophets and the original Books revealed to the Jews and the Christians. On the other hands, they do not accept Islam and Prophet Muhammad as the last prophet on earth because of their jealousy and hatred towards Islam.
Nonetheless, the conflict between the followers of different religions and their civilisations may be contained if there are mutual respect, understanding and tolerance with one another. Medina Constitution proved that the multi-religious and ethnic could

    In theory, if we don’t blame Christianity for the Klu Klux Klan, why do we blame Islam for ISIS? Muslims around the world are desperately trying to show that they do not condone the violence of ISIS, with other religions also trying to establish sympathy for Islam. Rabbi Marc Schneier, a Jewish pastor who sympathizes with the non-ISIS affiliated Muslims says, “Islamic extremism is a genuine threat to world peace, but those who lump all Muslims together and dismiss as meaningless the courageous stand of the moderate majority against extremism, aren’t helping to win that battle” (qtd. in Malcolm). Despite claims that hate crimes against Muslims have increased, many such as Senator Rubio don’t believe these claims.…

    The crusades was a war between the two biggest religions. Both of the religions really believed their gods, the people of the gods were told the holy land is there land, that's what Islam was told by Allah their god, the Christians believed the same thing but was told by Jesus there god. The two religions believed the holy land was theirs, that's how the crusades began. I believe the crusades were negative for the reasoning that crusades and christians have a terrible relationship.

    Certainly, a fundamental area of disagreement is whether Muhammad was a true prophet of God. However, it 's truly heartbreaking that monotheism has regressed to a debate over "whose God is the real God." So much human suffering could be averted if the emphasis could be rightly shifted to "we 're all humans on a path to the one God. Both Judaism and Islam believe that God created humankind with free will for the purpose of obedience and service to Him. In the book of Genesis from the Old Testament, the biblical story of the fall of Adam is detailed.…

    Muhammad was not to be celebrated as someone equal to Allah to dispute these western beliefs. Nevertheless, despite such a significant similarities between the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, “You will find that the people most hostile towards the believers are the Jews and the polytheists. And you will find that the nearest in affection towards the believers are those who say, “We are Christians.” That is because among them are priests and monks, and they are not arrogant.” (Surah 5:82). I found that this a powerful verse which despite all the western beliefs that Muslims have no tolerance or like towards Christians. This verse clearly contradicts…

    While the Judaists hold the city close because they believe it is the house of God, from the building of the temple by Solomon. This however sparked conflict when the temple was destroyed many times by Babylonians and Romans. This is how certain terrorism was sparked between religions, either from them trying to spread their own ideals to other faiths (missionaries), or believing their own faith was the only one with importance. Problem is in these religions there are followers who believe their faith is the only faith that is right, causing terrorism and violence between religions. Then you have terrorism that is sparked internally in a religion, there are many examples of this, one being Sunni and Shia views within Islam.…

    They all were messengers of Allah to convey the message to believe in Him, the Almighty, and to do good within the earth, etc. What is the Muslim view of the Bible? What we call the Bible today, is not mentioned in the Quran, although the Quran does contain the words of Jesus, David, and Moses, in addition to Muhammad. The scriptures sent by Allah before the Quran were the words of Allah. We believe that due to evil in the world, the scriptures had been altered, which is why Allah sent the final messenger, and the Holy Quran to revise everything that was sent before.…

    When Abraham saw his people worshipping images of God, he asked them as to why one would worship such falsities. After observing the traditions of their worship, Abraham denounced their worship as “manifest error” (Qur’an, Surah Al-Anbiyah’, 52-54). This “error” disregards the facts, or reality that there is no image of such a power. While in Islam, the image of God exists, it simply cannot be fathomed, or reproduced by humans; as there is “nothing like a likeness of Him, as he is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer” (Ash-Shura, 11). In other words, humans cannot create an image that is beyond their capacity and resemblance.…

    Other times, it’s more of spreading it out of fear or for control. What the Muslim’s have is much more than a drive; it’s pure evil. What they believe is something more pure for their daily lives is what causes global distress. The Quran, gives more evidence of how unjustified it preaches. “And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words right out of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah DESTROY them; how they are turned away!"…

    In the account, Muhammad is described as the “first-born son of Satan” who “falsely declared that he was a prophet sent from God and thereby led astray the lands of the East”.20 He explains that the Muslim people “employed sword and violence, instead of preaching and exhortation, to compel the people, however reluctant, to embrace the erroneous tenets of the prophet”.21 This account of the Muslims seems to reflect the Christian view that Muslims violently forced people into believing in Muhammad. 17.)
