Lack of logical argument

There is no logical argument in your reply.
The Meccan verses are are spirituality because Muhammed was financially supported by his tribe and had the time to ponder.
In the Medina verses (the second phase ofhis life) Muhammed became a war lord goading his followers to plunder the caravans and the pagan, Jewish and Christian communities, murdering, stealing land and belongings so as to be able to live.
The rewards of murder and plunder were even categorised so that there is a system as to how the spoils are distributed to the plunderers:
If a tribe minding their cattle are attacked, killed and their land and belongings stolen, these are shared among the attackers.
If a terrorized tribe surrenders without fighting, belongings are shared by attackers.
If the muslims attacked a tribe and a war ensues, all the men of the tribe are killed, land and possessions are then divided up: 1/5 of booty is for Allah and Muhammed and rest for the plunderers.
So Allah guarantees that Muhammed has a share and who takes Allah 's share ?
The Meccan verses are abrogated by the Medina verses. In five years Muhammed obliterated all the pagan, Jewish and Christian communities in arabia through plunder, murder and stealing possessions including forced marraige (rape ) of wives of Rabbis.
