Most people only heard from others that Islam is barbaric and such.They themselves never bother to study the Quran and if they studied it,they only look for 'mistakes' in the Holy Quran which is impossible.For every verse in the Quran,there is a story behind it,why the verse was revealed to the prophet.Islam as well guides its followers to do good and prevent evil.
The rest of world should unify as well. Although Iran is its own Islam, most of the other Islamic countries are mainly Sunni Muslim. The only reason these countries are divided is just simple politics and borders. Most Sunni nations speak the same language, have the same religion, and even border each other. Allahuakhbar!
It's might be easy to unify the world when people cut your head off if you refuse. But that's peace through terror and subjugation. If peaceful Muslims want to co-exist, then I'm all for that. But I'll worship Jesus and you worship Allah. And everything else will fall into place.
Christians and Muslims have been at each other's throats since the very beginning (even in this opinion question there are Christians tossing Bible scriptures left and right.)
Another religion isn't going to help unify the world, and they shouldn't plan to. All religions (including Islam) have done nothing but create chaos because no one, NO ONE can agree with each other, and they never will. There are violent messages in the Qu'ran, the Torah, the Bible and any other holy book you can find. There have been a mass amount radicals who've murdered, started wars, prevented peace and advancements of countries, etc.
Religion in general has not helped to bring people together, in fact there is constant fighting WITHIN the religion!
I've never seen a more chaotic belief than religion is.
Obviously not. Clearly, Muslims are already divided so much so as it is( Sunni vs Shiite). Islam conflicts with Christianity, Hinduism, and any other religion that isn't based on Allah, the one God. Religion, in my opinion, is a poor way to unify the world; Religion seems to take away from humanity's inept ability to make individual decisions for his/herself.
It's just another religion. It has its fanatics and its moderate adherents. But to say it's a way of unifying the world is ridiculous. The whole world will never be Muslim or Christian or any other faith. What will unify the world is tolerance for different ideas and beliefs including religions.
Religion favours one part of humanity over the other. It doesn't encourage equality of all men and women, but instead extends special treatment to its own group at the expense of other groups. What already unifies us is our shared humanity. Also, religion is seriously lame. Not going to happen.

Can't you just feel the love and peace of Islam :D
