The Holy Quran is the greatest book by the only God and His greatness is explained in this verse from Surah Baqarah called the ‘Ayatul Kursi’

“There is no god but He,
The Living, the Everlasting,
Slumber seizes Him not, neither sleep,
To Him belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth.
Who is there that can intercede with His, except by His leave?
He knows what lies before them and what is after them,
And they comprehend not anything of His Knowledge save as He wills.
His throne comprises the heavens and the earth,
The preserving of them fatigues Him not,
And He is the All-High, All-Glorious. “

[Al-Quran: Surat al-Baqarah, Ayah 255]

Besides from the greatness of Allah and Islam, Islam also teaches its followers peace, contrary to the belief the Muslims are terrorists. But it is sometimes the fault of some extremist Muslims who perform acts of terrorism and then the entire Muslim population is considered terrorists and wants to spread Islam through brute force. And it is clearly mentioned several times in the Holy Quran that the duty of Muslims is to clearly deliver the message of Allah and then it is up to them if they accept it, Muslims don’t have to use force to make them believe. There are several verses in the holy Quran that promote peace:

2:256 “Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth has been made clear from error. Whoever rejects false worship and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold that never breaks. And Allah hears and knows all things.”

16:82 But if they turn away from you, (O Prophet remember that) your only duty is a clear delivery of the Message (entrusted to you).

6:107 Yet if God had so willed, they would not have ascribed Divinity to aught besides him; hence, We have not made you their keeper, nor are you (of your own choice) a guardian over them.

4:79, 80 (Say to everyone of them,) ‘Whatever good betides you is from God and whatever evil betides you is from your own self and that We have (O Prophet) sent you to mankind only as a messenger and all sufficing is God as witness. Whoso obeys the Messenger, he indeed obeys God. And for those who turn away, We have not sent you as a keeper.”

11:28 (Noah to his people) He (Noah) said “O my people! Think over it! If 1 act upon a clear direction from my Lord who has bestowed on me from Himself the Merciful talent of seeing the right way, a way which you cannot see for yourself, does it follow that we can force you to take the right path when you definitely decline to take it”

17:53, 54 And tell my servants that they should speak in a most kindly manner (unto those who do not share their beliefs). Verily, Satan is always ready to stir up discord between men; for verily; Satan is mans foe …. Hence, We have not sent you (Unto men O Prophet) with power to determine their Faith.

This clearly shows that Islam is a peaceful religion but it is sometimes misjudged as a violent religion because of some people.
