Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-5

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 : ABDULLAH BIN SALLAM, JEWISH SCHOLAR

A. His Position in Medina

Abdullah bin Sallam was a well known and well respected Jewish scholar of Medina. Jews and other residents of Medina respected him and came to him, when there was any need of getting religious clarifications on any issue.

Abdullah was Scholar of Jewish Scriptures and he spent his time in studies and pondering over religious issues.

When prophet migrated to Medina, Abdullah was caught in a Dilemma. His studies of Jewish scriptures had convinced him, that one last prophet had to come into the world. Who it would be, he was not sure, there were signs and some of the attributes of that prophet mentioned in his Scriptures, most of them fit the New Prophet.

B. Abdullah Tests the Prophet:

But he was not sure, he wanted to test the prophet as to source of his divine knowledge. One day he came to meet the prophet when he was alone and said to prophet, I want to ask you three questions, no one knows the answers to them except a true Messenger of God, so please answer them, the questions were:

1. What is the first sign of “start of Last day”?

2. What will be the first food of those who will enter Paradise.

3. And why the Child sometimes resembles Father and some times he resembles Mother?

Prophet answered all the three questions, and Abdullah was satisfied with the answer and he declared his faith. Prophet told, that I did not knew the answer of these questions, Gabriel came just know and gave me the answers.

C. Abdullah tests Jews:

Abdullah said to prophet, please do not tell others about my conversion now . Call Leaders of Jews and ask them about me, I will hide behind this curtain, so they will not be able to see me.

The Prophet called all Leaders of Jews of Medina and asked “What is position of Abdullah bin Sallam amongst you”?

“He is our Leader, one of our Best man and son of our Best man, we do not find any thing but good in him” They replied with one voice.

“What would you say, if he became Muslim” Asked the Prophet.

“God Forbid, that he leave the Path of Moses and choose this New Path” said the Jews.

On hearing this, Abdullah came out from the curtain and said “You All be witness that I have accepted Islam and become a Muslim”!!

Jews rushed out of the Prophet’s House saying “He is the Worst amongst us, son of the Worse man and his opinion counts for nothing with us”!!

Such was Abdullah bin Sallam, another Victim of Sword of Knowledge of our prophet!!

I see Muq avoids this. Like a coward with his fingers in his ears. From his posts on other forums I would say he cheered her brutal murder.

He is only making Islam look worse and worse with his cowardice and avoiding the truth. Islam is for the weak minded barbaric unwashed people.

Nobody reads your spam Muq why are you avoiding the question about the innocent Muslim girl gunned down on her school bus by Muslims who were angry that she wanted women to have equal opportunities for education as men?

Why do you not denounce this barbaric action? It must be because you cheered for that little Muslim girl to be gunned down for her statement. Islam the religion of barbaric unwashed people.

Studying?? You must be joking. Reading your posts is exactly like reading the Torah or Bible. It is just religious hogwash.

The immorality in your posts is that you post them amongst questions affecting your fellow human beings, like those about Malala. You choose to ignore humanity for the sake of idle religious dogma which is why you tend to be braketed with the sort of "Muslims" who shot her.

If you wish to be part of the discussion, you will have to pay attention to it. Never you mind criticising others for their 'lack of study'- you are the one paying least attention to what is written in this thread.

It is strange, all these people say that no one reads my posts, and yet, I repeat and yet, I get maximum number of posts!!

If NONE of these people read my posts, why are they FIRSTS to comment that NO ONE reads them?

A bit strange, don't you think? I know my posts hurt these people in their most sensitive parts, their hearts!!

They make such remarks so I get discouraged and stop my posts. If they but keep quite and do not make any comments, may be I get disheartened and leave the thread.

But the injury I cause to their hearts is too big for them to ignore me totally. It is like a catch-22 situation.

They cannot leave me in peace and they cannot bear the injury!! A real dilemma!!

Given Muq's determination to ingnore the question, one might naturally conclude that he is unconcerned at the killing of a 14 year old girl in the name of Islam, simply because she wished to get an education.

"The petition calls on Pakistan to ensure that every girl like Malala has the chance to go to school," he said, while also calling on the international community to ensure all children have access to education by the end of 2015.

Mr Brown said he would hand the petition to Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari when he visits Islamabad in November.
Unquote.

Will Malala survive? The next few days will be critical.

Exactly all he would have to do is say he denounces the violent actions of these Muslims yet he won't. Why?

Because they are using Muhammad's sword. No wonder Muslim youth are drifting away from Islam in record numbers.

Which “Sword” the Prophet Used against his enemies: Part-6

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 : HIND BINT UTBAH BIN RABEAH

A. Early History:

She was the daughter of Utbah bin Rabeah, one of the Chiefs of Makkah. She was wife of Abu Sufian, another Chief of Makkah and she was the mother of Muawiah , Fifth Caliph of Islamic state. So from every angle her was a dignified position.

When prophet declared his mission in Makkah, both her father Utbah and her husband Abu Sufian became staunch enemies of Islam. She inherited hatred of Islam from both directions and was enemy of Islam by any standard.

When prophet migrated to Medina and the first battle took place between Makkan and Muslims at the place of Badr, her husband was leading the Trade Caravan, which was one reason for the battle. Her father was head of Makkan army.

Her father, her uncle and her brother (Utbah, Shaibah and Waleed) were the first three Makkan who were killed in individual combats, before the general fighting started. They were killed by Hamzah, prophet’s Uncle, Ali, Prophet’s cousin and Ubaidah, prophets cousin.

These three deaths of close family members at the hands of so close relatives of prophet, made her almost mad with rage.

B. Hind and the Battle of Ohud:

This battle which took place in 3AH was to take the revenge for the battle of Badr. In this battle, Hind was leading groups of Makkan women that were singing battle songs and encouraging their men to fight.

Hind devised a plan to kill Hamzah, the uncle of prophet, who had killed her father and brother at Badr. She told one Abyssinian slave that if he killed Hamzah, he would be set free. The slave looked for Hamzah and finding an opportunity, killed him with his lance.

When news reached Hind, she found the corpse of Hamzah, cut his nose and ears and hung them as garland around her neck…..then she opened his stomach and took out the liver….she tried to chew it, but spat after a few bites.

And she left the corpse of Hamzah in that condition in the battle field. Following her action, other Makkan women disfigured corpses of other martyred Muslims.

When prophet saw the condition of his uncle’s body after the end of battle, he was extremely pained….he vowed to do the same to copses of unbelievers, but was told by God to refrain from it.

This incident shows the spiteful nature and passion of that great woman!!

(Contd.)

C: How did prophet “slay” her:

When prophet captured Makkah in 8 AH, he announced a general amnesty to all Makkah people. Abu Sufian had accepted Islam just days before capture of Makkah, prophet gave him amnesty and told that any one who will take refuge in his house will be granted amnesty.

After order was restored, prophet took the pledge of Islam, from every one in Makkah, first men and when no one was left…he took the pledge from women also.

Hind, also appeared before prophet, disguised so that she might not be recognized and the following dialogues took place:

“I will worship Allah and will make no partners with him” Said the prophet

“I accept this” said Hind

“I will not commit adultery or fornication” said prophet

“Can any honorable women do such things” said Hind

“I will not kill my children” said the prophet

“We raise them and then you kill them” said Hind

“Are you Hind” asked the prophet?

“Yes” replied Hind

“I will not steal” said the prophet

“I take some money from Abu Sufian’s purse because he is miser, is it also stealing” said Hind

“If you take what suffice you and your children , then it is OK” said the prophet.

So the pledge was taken and Hind said

“O prophet of Allah, when I came here, no face was more disagreeable to me than your face and now it is most beautiful of All faces” said Hind

Such was Hind daughter of Utbah, one of the victims of “sword” of our prophet!!

The prophet has his followers use the sword on 14 year old girls who ask for education.
