Ordinary people do not know too much about Islam. They see migrants on TV, knowing that they are Muslims. Do we need to be afraid of their religion? Do they want to convert us? Will they introduce sharia law, whatever this thing is? Will they try to have four wives and conquer Europe by their children? What does Islam say about religious minorities, or Muslim People in minority status? What the heck is jihad? Questions and answers.
