Prophet Muhammad is known as the last prophet to be sent and one that was sent to all of humanity.(Al-Saba, 34:28, Al-Ahzab, 33:40.) He desired that everybody he invited to Islam became Muslim and was always extremely saddened when his invitation was refused. In response to this, in the following verses: "If your Lord had so willed, all who are on the earth would surely have believed, all of them;" (Yunus, 10:99.) "...had God so willed, He could surely have gathered them all to the true guidance;" (Al-Anґam 6:35.) "And say: "The truth from your Lord (has come in this Qur'an)." Then, whoever wills (to believe), let him believe; and whoever wills (to disbelieve), let him disbelieve;" (Al-Kahf, 18:29.) and other similar verses, God informs us in a very clear way that on the matter of belief people are free to do as they wish. In addition God says: "Then, if they turn away, what rests with you,(O Messenger,) is only to convey the Message fully and clearly;" (An-Nahl, 16:82.) "If you turn away (from obedience to them), then know that what rests with Our Messenger is only to convey the Message fully and clearly." ( Al-Ma'ida, 5:92.) These and other similar verses (Al-Ma'ida, 5:99, Ar-Ra'd, 13:40, An-Nahl, 16:22, An-Nur, 24:54, Al-Ankabut, 29:18, Ya-sin, 36:17.) make it clear that the Prophet's duty to the non-believers was only to inform (tabligh) and that he was not to force them.(Al-Al-Ghaashiyah, 88:22.) God orders that: "Do not argue with those who were given the Book save in the best way, unless it be those of them who are given to wrongdoing. Say (to them): "We believe in what has been sent down to us and what was sent down to you, and your God and our God is one and the same. We are Muslims wholly submitted to Him." (Al-Ankabut, 29:46.) "Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and argue with them in the best way possible." (An-Nahl, 16:125.) In this way we are told that any argument or debate with the People of the Book should be carried out on a basis of peace.

In fact, after Prophet Muhammad had immigrated to Medina he began by speaking of the book that had been revealed to the Jews and the God they believed in. He stated that he was speaking of the same religion that Abraham, Moses and Jesus had been commanded to reveal.(Ash-Shura, 42:13.) The qibla at that time was Jerusalem, which was the direction of prayer for the Jews. For matters on which there had been no revelation, the Jewish ways were preferred, and in this way opposition was shown to the polytheists.( Bukhari, "Merits of the Helpers", 52.) The Muslims fasted on the day of Ashura in the month of Muharram, which was a day on which the Jews also kept a fast.( Bukhari, "Fasting", 69.) Permission was given to the Muslims to eat food prepared by the Jews and to marry their chaste women,( Al-Ma'ida, 5:5.) and tales of the Beni Israel were told.(Abu Dawud, "Knowledge", 11.) The Jews were reminded that the beliefs contained in the Torah were mandatory for them and they were invited to Islam.

In the Medinan period Prophet Muhammad generally invited the leading Christians to Islam via letters. In these letters he called himself the Messenger of God, and invited the Christians to be servants of Allah, the One and Unique. He stated that there was no god but Allah, and called upon them to run to nothing but Him. Prophet Muhammad stated that Islam accepted the prophets who had come before him, Prophet Abraham, Ismail, Isaac, Jacob, Moses and Jesus, that Jesus was the soul and word that was destined to pure Mary by Allah's will. "I am the closest to Jesus, the son of Mary among the people in this world and the afterlife" (Bukhari, "Prophets", 48; Muslim "Fedail", 143.) he stated, expressing his closeness to Jesus. Prophet Muhammad stated that as long as the Nejran Christians worshipped the cross, believed that Jesus was the son of God and ate pork they could not be Muslims.

Where in the world do muslims protect minority rights? They perseucte christians, jews, bahais, sikhs, buddhists, hindus, Taoists, confuscians. Name a religion and Islam will persecute it. They even perseucte fellow muslims.

Mohammad "invited" everbody to islam with his sword.

Islam protects minorities' rights only when Islam is in the minority.

Mohammed claimed that himself and, therefore, he went to Hell. Nix "may he rest in peace"!
