I think is a question i can ask on Islam, and correct me if I'm wrong (first time here) but last night i had a room-mate who was spouting off a lot of anti Islamic hate speech, things along the lines of
'Islam is an evil and hateful religion'
'Muslims will lie to non Muslims to further their cause'
to outright wrong things like
- 'all Muslims must die'
and other things which have no point being listed here due to their outright hatred. and being in favor of tolerance i tried to correct him, but i know next to nothing about Islamic doctrine. so my question is, what are some good responses to your standard anti Islamic rant?
Is there a good English source to learn basic Islamic doctrinal belief so i can educate myself enough to combat future attacks on it? I would be willing to read anything up to twenty pages (that's all that i have time for). when faced with a situation like this should one just conclude that their is no changing his mind and remain silent?
