After the Crusades, the defeat of the European nations compelled them to change their attitude. They adopted the culture of spirituality, scientific research and education which led to the progress of their society. The European countries understood the futility of war and violence and diverted their attention to acquiring knowledge which paved the way for the Renaissance. Muslims must adopt a similar attitude. They must use the various scientific approaches to present the peaceful tenets of Islam to the world.
