Top 10 Myths about Islam Religion

Islam is the fastest spreading religion in the world, but many people are unaware of this fact. There are numerous stories associated with this religion, which have nothing to do with reality. Despite that, people believe them to be true without doing any research, which is a wrong way of approaching things.

It is still present in the original form and has no other versions, unlike some of the other Holy Scriptures. After reading this sacred book, which Muslims believe to be the word of God, you will be able to bust numerous myths about Islam.
