Alhamdulillah, I am a strong Muslim in faith, and don't doubt that Islam is the truth at all. However, I am having a very hard time understanding how expansion and conquering "by the sword", as was especially done in the years of the 4 caliphs right after the Prophet's (saw) death, can be considered moral and even encouraged in the religion. How can I reconcile this?
