How was Muhammad to treat those who rejected his preaching?


(Al-Masjid an-Nabawī or the Prophets Mosque in Medina is the second holiest site to Muslims)

Here’s one instruction to Muhammad from the Qur’an (16:82), followed by the English  translation:

فَإِن تَوَلَّوْا فَإِنَّمَا عَلَيْكَ الْبَلَاغُ الْمُبِينُ

“And if they turn away, your responsibility is only to have clearly conveyed the message.”

Many people in this day and age think that Muhammad was an intolerant. bloodthirsty caravan merchant. But that can not be further from the truth. The real Muhammad preached tolerance and acceptance.
