Also, because you didn't know it, the ayah says "There is no compulsion in religion."
I actually have a problem with this verse because it's technically a contradiction. If you read the next verses, it states unbelievers will burn in hell. Surely that is compulsion in religion? That's like saying "I won't force you to convert but you will later burn in hell". This applies to most religions, not just Islam. If there is an explanation to this then I'd like to hear it because I may be wrong about this.
