Did Prophet Muhammad Initiate Wars Against Peaceful Neighbors?

By Abu Amina Elias / 30 May 2013

Question:

Did Muhammad declare war against people because they did not embrace Islam?

Answer:

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, did not initiate war against anyone who offered to make peace with him. War is a last resort in Islam for the physical defense of the community and it is not a means to force people to enter Islam. Peaceful coexistence among different religions is highly preferred over conflict.
