Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-36

Enemies of Islam represent our prophet as a very cruel and blood thirsty man, who would kill his “opponents, enemies and any one who disagreed with him” at “the drop of hat” and all his adversaries would be “terrified” at the mere sight of him.

The picture is far from true, let us look at some incidents from the life of prophet, as what was “this sword which killed the enmity for ever”

The Case of : ANSARS of Medina after the Battle of HUNAIN

Muslims of Madina, who were named “ANSARS” by Allah and His messenger, have a very distinguished position in the history of Islam. It is they who gave shelter to prophet and his companions, when they took flight from Makkah.

It is they who stood in front of whole Arabia and fought alongside Prophet and his companions. It is they who shared their land, their houses and their property which people who fled from Madina. They were with prophet at every critical juncture.

In fact it is very difficult to write down all their sacrifices in such a short space. Suufice it will be to say that they fulfilled the pledge they make to prophet, when they invited him to come to Madina.

Prophet used to love Madina and its original residents, with a love that was nothing short of Divine.

It was with their support and perseverance that Prophet finally conquered Makkah in 8 AH, paving the way for rapid spread of Islam thru out Arabia in a very short time.

Well knows battle of HUNAIN took place very close to the Opening of Makkah. This battle is also mentioned in Quran. Muslim army consisted of more that 12000 people, largest till that day and Muslims were confident that they cannot loose. Their opponents were Tribe of HAWAZIN, who were very good archers. In the initial phase of battle, Muslims were defeated and were running hither and thither, but due to perseverance of prophet and some of his companions, the tides were turned and Muslims won the battle.

In this battle Muslims got a large amount of War booty consisting of camels and sheep and goat. Prophet distributed from that booty large numbers of camels and goats to recently converted chiefs of Makkah and gave nothing and very little to ANSARS of Madina. On this some youngsters said “when the time of battle comes, we a re put in front and when the time of booty comes, others are kept in front”

This was relayed to prophet and he asked that all ANSARS and no-one else but themselves be gathered into a large tent.

(Contd.)

When ANSARS gathered, prophet came and asked that I have such and such from you, is it true. The elders said that some of the youngsters have said so, but not we the elders and leaders of our people.

Prophet asked “Were you not without guidance, and Allah guided you to the right path thru me?”

“Yes! O Allah’s messenger” they said.

“Were, you not divided lot and Allah united them thru me” Asked the prophet

\“Yes! O Allah’s messenger” they said.

“Were you not poor and Allah made you rich thru me?” Asked the prophet

“Yes! O Allah’s messenger” they said.

“No, but if you said, That you were rejected and we accepted you, You were alone, and we supported you, You were driven from your homes and we gave shelter to you, Then you will be true and your voice will be accepted” Said the prophet in a very emotional voice. All the ANSARS started weeping on hearing prophet saying so.

“O ANSARS are you not happy, that other people shall take camels and goats and sheep and you shall take Allah’ Messenger with yourselves?” Said the prophet in the same emotional voice.

“Yes, we are happy, O Allah’ messengers” Said the people in your voice.

“O ANSARS do you know, if there was no migration, I would have been one of the ANSARS, If people go into one valley and ANSARS into another valley, I will go to the ANSARS valley”

“ O Allah, have mercy on ANSARS, on their Children and the Children of their Children” Prayed the prophet.

Upon this the whole congregation started weeping with a loud voice and with those tears were washed any evil thoughts that had creeped into their minds.

Such was the “Sword of Psychology and Wisdom” which prophet used to enslave these ANSARS to his side for ever!

rabbee: being an enemy to someone, does not mean they are an enemy of G-D. any more than calling anyone a prophet, means they really are one.

I still have no idea what the point you are raising.

On the surface, you could answer your own question if you read the two books. Why argue with someone who hasnt read the books? And in the same token, how can you label another posters view as "good" when he hasnt read the books either?

A very byzantian reply. Or as rabbee pointed out the simple naming of people as enemy does not make it so. maybe he and the ansar were just out to get their hands on their synagoge, land, goods, tax, trade, wifes, daughters etc.

What Stefano asks for ( apart ofcourse from the valid question whether an actual person existed ):
Muhammad, during his Mecca years, was ridiculed for his confused sayings by his own tribe of Quraish. He was called “shaeron majnoon”—crazed poet.

More of this kid of ridicule would make the person more real ( a drawback if one historically doubts the existence. Though we do not know if it was actually about him. It might be some over the top ruler who's acts and reaction to invasions and killings were attributed to.)

The rise of islam by Margoulith.
Apropos fire or light, we see, Mo ahmed depicted as a horse with fiery wings, and fire all around in general.
The night journey was witnessed as a literal horse ride to medinah, as one of his consorts reported.

Chronology trouble is usually fixed by taking some important day to other groups like f.i. the jews.
This book also points to the night-journey to the kuba in Madinat/madinah, which was formerly a synagoge as we learned. But tries to weed out the most obvious made up embellishments but still hopes not to have been too gullible.
But frankly the idea is that Moahmed was an empire shaper/builder by means of a strictly binding set of rules under a higher authority where people have no sayso or free will. His life story got embellished.
Joseph Smith who created mormonism is used as a comparison when margoliouth looks at certain aspects like M.'s revelations.

Margoliuth was the 'Most Biased" writer I have encountered. If some one talks from Ignorance, one can discount and forgive him.

But when one "deliberately" tries to distort the authentic information available with him and draws a "totally erroneous conclusions" Accepting part of the report as "authentic" and another part "Pure exaggeration and faith based"....one wonders what type of scholar he is.

And most western people read such writers and consider them Authority Supreme on Islam and Islamic literature.

I find no excuse for such people, because they behaved in the dishonest manner, after knowing and understanding the message.

the "poor" people on this thread can be excused, because none of them know Arabic language and therefore have no first hand knowledge.

But people like George Sale and prof. Margoliuth and their likes are deliberate mischief makers. They distort the truth and they hide the truth and they try to mislead the truth.

To compare our prophet and Joseph Smith is the height of ignorance!!

page 50 Abrahat brought the elephant named Mahmut/d against the ka'bah, in the Abessynian invasion of mecca (valley of becca but a.k.a. Hiram and other names depending on the ruling tribe.)
The speculation rises that if Mohammed a.k.a Ahmad or Mahmud, was a historical figure, than he was born and named after the year of that elephant.
So no more ideas of even ahmed being relevant (Guilleaume)but all simple down to earth stuff.
Any god or goddess (a.k.a. angel or djinn) could bring good and evil, so their was no actual distinction between one or the other.
We also find a tradition where Mutalib digged Zemzem (as it ia called in this collation. ie Zamzam)

I love those old studies that were made before they were all told to shut up and only tell the politically correct version.

Age of Ignorance was more likely called Barbarianism. Ignorance being a wrong translation.
Allah did not become different in properties, just in name as 'the god'.

The bisshop on his red camel had many stories written about him. His name Kuss was however most probably a wrong pronounciation of kasha-priest.
Either Ghassanid or of Hiram.
I could allready not find him in the list of bisshops of those days.

page 35 The first language the gospel was translated in, was arab (khufic-syriac should thus be understood), round about the 5th century, in a Ghassanid convent.

I thought you would indeed jump without testing the waters.
It's still seen as an apology for Islam, using material of the 19 and beginning of the 20th century.
Snouck Gurgronje to name one of the giants.
It does indeed not fit your politically correct and adjusted version. We see that new ( relatively as in Tabari edited material does not feature.) and in the 18th and 19th century Mecca was still a hummock, so much unspoiled, as well as the people.
But the sources are Islamic!

So read and think twice before commenting. You are most probably the one with the edited version.

Muq. Those are those faith based made up stories.
But if you are no longer capable of distinguishing fact and fiction we are bound for a crazy discussion.

Joseph Smith (that inspired Bottom...yup it's a funny read at times.)also had epileptic symptoms coincding with his revelations, but also a shrewdness to make people follow.

But reading about the actual goings on in the mecca of the age of Ignorance c.q. Barbarianism gives a much better explanation as to why a 'prophet from a dunghill' could arise, instead of coming from a nobel house.

I also found that later sources attribute to moahmed what was formerly attributed to others.

What is interesting is that the quraan contains and attributes some writing to Lukman who seems to have been a black man that had written a booklet with several guidelines, that were followed in the days before and during and after Mo's time.
Mutalib strangely enough features in the accounting books deriving from post 812 CE!
No modern edited source would ever tell us these things.
We f.i. have to content with Mo comparing black people to raisins, and thus alluded understanding that none of his companions wanted to listen to black men. Or that arabs always had tribes and geneologies, which was not the case.

The people and religion would have more credibility if they stuck closer to verifiable facts.

Nowadays we have fiction and Mali's sharia war and in the Netherlands a mother that beats her 7 year old son to death because after a long day of studying the little mite still can't recite the quraan verses!

IS RUACH THE SOUL?

1) The dictionaries provide 2 different roots, related to each other, as the etymology of ruach: either the verb "rawach", which means to "be spacious", "to be light", or the verb "riach" which means "to breathe in", "to smell".

2) The latter root, "to breathe in", "to smell", is more commonly held among the commentators.

3) From these descriptions we infer that ruach refers to the life-force that's an aspect of the vital consciousness-energy. The Hebrews mistook this for the soul.

4) The soul is far more complex than this simple description.

5) The true soul is the psychic being that stands veiled behind the mental, vital, subtle physical, gross physical and subconscient layers in the human being and organises these sheaths from its station in the force field corresponding to the cardiac centre in the middle of the chest region.

6) In most humans, the psychic is suppressed in its action on account of the perversions of the mental, vital and physical consciousnesses in the individual. It awakens and comes to the forefront only when the frontal personality is sufficiently purified and when the intense aspiration for the truth relentlessly governs the being. The full awakening of the psychic and the subsequent psychichization of the frontal personality takes place only under the impact of the yoga....

7) Besides, the soul or the psychic in humans is a delegation of a superior line of cosmic consciousness-energy and this in turn has a supracosmic aspect and finally this can be traced to a direct projection from the unified field of consciousness-energy that in the manifestation bypasses the intervening planes and directly infuses matter as represented in the human species.

8) The awakened psychic helps the individual consciousness-energy to scale the entire hierarchy of the planes of the Manifestation and merges into the unified field as the ultimate consequence.

And more....
