II Courageous Brigette Gabriel presents 1400 years of Islam, Religion of Peace, in 15 minutes – A fearless wake-up call to those who prefer denial
Muhammad is the founder of Islam. Born in Mecca (now within current Saudi Arabia) in 570 CE. Most of his early life was spent as a merchant. At age 40, he began to have revelations from Allah that became the basis for the Koran and the foundation of Islam.
(He was originally not accepted as a prophet by the Arabs of Mecca and elected therefore to move to Medina which was populated by Jews and hopefully gain acceptance by them of his revelations. They did not accept him as a prophet. He then created a Treaty of Hudaybijjah with the Jews that was to have lasted 10 years. After only 2 years, Muhammad felt strong enough to defeat the Jews, abrogated the Treaty and slaughtered the Jews of Medina.
You may remember the famous photo-op handshake on the White House lawn, Sep 13, 1993 between Yasir Arafat and Yitschak Rabin with Bill Clinton as witness. This was supposed to have been the beginning of a mutually acceptable peace process. Within hours, Yasir Arafat secretly advised his followers not to be concerned and told them, remember the Treaty of Hudaybijjah, mentioned above, wherein Muhammed killed all the Jews after two years.
This slaughter was quickly followed by Muhammed’s return in triumph to Mecca and the beginning if his reign of terror and conquest that continued until his death in 632. By 630 he had unified most of Arabia under a single religion – his. He died in 632 CE
His followers were amazingly successful in their ongoing conquests that continue in one form or another to this very day. As of 2015, there are over 1.8 billion Muslims in the world who profess, “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet.” “Allah Akbar” remains the universal battle cry the Islamic terrorists declare right before killing themselves and as many non-believers as possible. The Arab leaders seem to by-pass this particular part of the ceremonies.) jsk
A few examples of the peaceful nature of Muhammed’s conquests include the following:
▶ Tortured & killed unbelievers – beginning in 628 AD
1. To find the treasure hidden by the Jewish Banu an- Nadir tribe, Muhammad personally ordered the torture of three Jews: Saʼyah ibn-ʻAmr (The Origins of the Islamic State, p. 43), Kinanah bin al-Rabi (The Life of Muhammad (Sirat Rasul Allah), p. 515), and Ibn Abi l- Huqayq (The Life of Muhammad: Al-Waqidi’s Kitab al- Maghazi, p. 331). Muhammad then personally ordered the killing Ibn Abi.
2. After a raid on the settlement of Wadi al- Qura about 100 miles from Medina in 628, Zaid (Muhammadʼs adoptive son) by Muhammadʼs authority ordered that a “very old woman” Umm Qirfa be tied by her legs between two camels and ripped in two. (The Life of Muhammad, page 665)
When Muhammad raided the Jewish town of Khaybar in 629, their treasure had been hidden. To extract its location, Muhammad ordered that a fire be kindled on the chest of the leader, Kinana bin al-Rabi. When he was nearly dead, Muhammad delivered the man to a fellow-raider who beheaded him. (The Life of Muhammad, page 515).
What is Islam?
Islam is defined by the holy texts of its religion – not by the beliefs, actions or virtues of a Muslim.
▶ Muhammad is Islam – Islam is Muhammad The importance of Muhammadʼs example in Islam cannot be over-stated. The Quran establishes in Surah 33:21, “There is a good example in Allahʼs apostle [Muhammad] for those of you who look to Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah always.” Sharia Law insists that the moral scale of good and evil is NOT what reason considers good or bad, but rather what Muhammad indicated by what he did or what he forbade or permitted. (Reliance of the Traveler, paragraph a1.4)
This is further emphasized by a reliable Hadith, Bukhari Book 9, Number 391, “If I [Muhammad] forbid you to do something keep away from it. And if I order you to do something, then do it as much as you can.
Muhammad, at about age 50, married Aisha in 620, when she was six years old, and he consummated their marriage in 623, when she was nine. She remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).
There are numerous authoritative reports in which Muhammad was personally involved in possessing, buying, selling, or giving away slaves:
As we saw in the section dealing with slavery, Muhammad engaged in the slave trade and possessed slaves of his own. And after a Muslim victory, Muhammad was involved in distributing the captured non-Muslim women among his Muslim warriors, and taking some for himself. Islamic Doctrine is based on the Koran and the teachings of Muhammad. What did this Doctrine allow to happen to these non-Muslim women?
Captured non-Muslim women then, and still today, fall under the category of those “whom your right hands possess.” Such a woman becomes a slave to her Muslim captor, has all previous marriages annulled (Reliance of the Traveller, o9.13) and it then becomes “legal” for him to have intercourse with her. This is authorized by 4:24 of the Koran, which begins by stating:
Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (slaves) whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you…
Who is a Muslim?
A Muslim is one who is obedient to the commands of Allah and examples of Muhammad.
▶ Beheaded 600 Jews in one day
For twenty-five nights in March 627, the Muslims besieged a Jewish enclave within Medina until they surrendered. Some within the enclave had been accused of aiding Muhammadʼs enemies. In an act of collective punishment, Muhammad ordered all of the men – some 600 to 900 in total – beheaded and the women and children sold off as slaves. The entire clan was disseminated. As it was later described:
The Messenger of God [Muhammad] breakfasted at the market and gave instructions for a furrow to be dug there [in which to bury those to be killed]…The Messenger of God sat with the distinguished among his companions. He called for the men of the Banu Qurayza, and they came out at a leisurely pace, and their heads were cut off.
It is generally accepted that Muhammad consummated marriages with eleven women during his life. During the time of his first marriage, he had only one wife, Khadija. During the last three years of his life, he had nine wives at one time. Here are a few of his eleven wives:
Khadija bint Khuwaylid b. Asad – Married to Muhammad in 595. Died in 619.
Sawdah bint Zam’ah b. Qays – Married to Muhammad in 619 after Khadija’s death.
Aisha bint Abi Bakr al-Siddiq – Married to Muhammad in 620, when she was only six years old, and he consummated the marriage in 623, when she was nine.
Hafsa bint ‘Umar b. al-Khattab – Married to Muhammad in March 625.
And, this is only the beginning of the lurid tale of this “Perfect Man of Peace.”
