Our dear Deb tells us that Muhammad the Arabian warlord and caravan raider sent letters to

1. al-muqawqas and this is the most significant claim as it is grounded in the Qur'an (surat al-tahreem)

2. Heraclius

3. Malik al-Habasha (the Negus)

4. Malik al-majuus (read this as Khusru)

He did ask them to convert to Islam and this is the bogus claim by the Islamic historical tradition

So it is your turn our dear Deb to provide us with real historical evidence that these letters indeed were sent by Muhammad and let me repeat and the list has been expanded

The following will not be accepted as evidence

1. I deb al-tablighee say so or my Mullah told me so

2. The moron Zakir Naik or his brother Naik Muhammad say so

3. Pakistani tendentious web sites or bogus forgeries of such letters in wikipedia posted by shameless tablighees like you

4. Karen Armstrong (the wannabe historian) because she and not me have said on several occasions that she is not a historian and because she cannot read the primary sources in this case in Arabic, Syriac, Ethiopic, Coptic and Greek

5. The so called Prof Esposito who is not a historian of early Islam and do us a favor stop your bogus "argument from kuffar"! To the readers: tablighees are in the habit that if a claim is advanced by a kaffir then it must be true! I call this ignorance

The following will be accepted as evidence

1. al-Qur'an and in this case surat al-tahreem

2. al-sira al-nabawiyya in Ibn Hisham's redaction of Ibn Ishaq's sirat rasul allah

3. al-Tabari's Tarikh and Baladhuri's futuh and Ibn Abd al-Malik and also see Eutychius

4. al-Waqidi al-maghazi (can the reader imagine that a biography of a so called holy man and in this case Muhammad is called the invasions? But again he was not the Buddha)

5. For extant literary evidence of pre-islam and early islam until the end of the umayyads in 750CE (oh darn it CE then I must be a Zionist) and for this see Hoyland (our dear Deb there is no escape here that Hoyland is a major source of the extant evidence like it or not and for sure ignorant Karen Armstrong ain't one)

6. For the identification of who is really al-muqawqas then read Alfred Butler (sorry he is a kafir too) and you will also find the chronology of the Persian invasion of the Middle east

7. For a literary review of the story of mariyya al-qibtiyya then see Amelineau

8. For extant literary sources by non Muslims that did witness the Arab invasion see Hoyland

Now take a break from posting your drivel and read and then come back and tell us the readers why do you believe that such story is for real

Is this asking for much our dear Deb al-tablighee?

Oh so did you tell the folks at AIPAC that I will continue to tell your likes about early islam for nothing?
