Islamic States have historically created a set of benefits that only Muslims could partake, making a choice to be Muslim tied to choices about economic viability (which trades you could work - especially in government) or tied to choices of social standing. These would strongly weight the choice and produce a steady stream of converts by their very nature.

Why did the Arab warriors not want to convert large numbers of people to Islam?

Answer 1It is a basic rule in Islam that no compulsion in religion. so, the Arab warriors never try to convert non Muslims to Islam.Answer 2Economically and politically speaking, non-Muslims had a lower rank and position in the Islamic Caliphates. Therefore in order to protect their political and economic interests, Muslims did not try to convert non-Muslims. This would preserve more "room up at the top" for them. Many converts to Islam came in the pre-conquest or post-conquest environment when people saw the advantages of being Muslim in a society that would be under Muslim control.

Do you have a choice in Afghanistan to choose your religion?

According to the Constitution of Afghanistan (Chapter 1, Article 2) the official religion of the State is Islam. However, all citizens of other religions have the right to follow their respective faiths and participate in religious rituals within the boundaries of law. In that regard, they are free to choose their own religion--if they already belonged to a religion other than Islam, there is no legal compulsion upon them to convert to Islam. (Unless they intend to run for President, as only a Muslim can be eligible.) Afghanistan is a Muslim-majority country and as such, many people are born into the same religion (that is, Islam) that they continue to follow for the rest of their lives. Conversion from Islam into other religions, or no religion, is a controversial subject that remains a matter of heated debate in the Muslim world. While a number of liberal and moderate Islamic scholars maintain the Quran gives people freedom to choose their religion, including convert to one other than Islam, the majority of Islamic scholars, jurists, clerics and Muslims believe it to be a capital offense. Under Shariah law, ex-Muslims are to be put to death.

If a catholic woman marries Muslim man in a mosque must she convert at the ceremony?

Yes,That is possible in Islam __________________________________________ Yes, a Catholic woman can marry a Muslim man. it is not required for a Catholic woman to convert to Islam to marry a Muslim man. Per Islam teachings and rules, it is allowed for a Muslim man to marry a Christian (Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant, Jewish, or Muslim woman. This comes from the fact that per Islam and Quran teachings, Christians and Jews worship same God worshiped by Muslims and; accordingly; they are not called unbelievers but are called holders of the book as they are holders of the Bible and the Torah that Muslims believe they are God holy books as the Quran is. However, as the husband, per Islam teachings, is responsible of the family financial responsibilities and expenses (even if the wife works, she is allowed not to spend on family cost of living) and the children bear the father name, children are raised up as Muslims until they become mature enough to chose their religion per their free will. The Christian or Jewish woman after marriage is allowed to practice her ritual worship at home as well as in the church.
