Clearly you have not read the Quran.
Chapter 12: Spoils of War : Living off expeditions: The spoils of war are for Allah and the Messenger", booty for the believers.
Hadith narrated by Mus'ab b. Sa'd who heard it from his father as saying:
My father took a sword from Khums and brought it to the Prophet and said: Grant it to me. He refused. At this Allah revealed (the Qur'anic verse):" They ask thee concerning the spoils of war. Say: The spoils of war are for Allah and the Apostle" (viii. 1).
It has been narrated on the authority of Ibn Umar that the Prophet sent an expedition to Najd and I was among the troops. They got a large number of camels as a booty. Eleven or twelve camels fell to the lot of every fighter and each of them also got one extra camel.
Chapter 16 : The killer is entitled to the belongings of the one who is killed
Abu Qatada reported: We accompanied the Messenger of Allah (my peace be upon him) on an expedition in the year of the Battle of Hunain (polytheists)
The expedition ended in a victory for the Muslims and the Messenger of Allah sat down (to distribute the spoils of war).
The angel Gabriel participated in the expedition against Banu Quraish.narrated on the authority of A'isha who said: ...The Messenger of Allah pitched a tent ...... When he returned from the Ditch and laid down his arms and took a bath, the angel Gabriel appeared to him and he was removing dust from his hair (as if he had just returned from the battle). The latter said: You have laid down arms. By God, we haven't (yet) laid them down. So march against them. The Messenger of Allah asked: Where? He pointed to Banu Quraiza. So the Messenger of Allah (may peace he upon him) fought against them. They surrendered at the command of the Messenger of Allah but he referred the decision about them to Sa'd who said: I decide about them that those of them who can fight be killed, their women and children taken prisoners and their properties distributed (among the Muslims). It has been narrated on the authority of Hisham (who learnt it from his father) that the Messenger of Allah said (to Sa'd): You have adjudged their case with the judgment of God. the Exalted and Glorified. Muhammed knew that Sa'd hated the Qur. So the merciful Allah of the Quran kills 600,000 men by sliting their throat after they surrender.
The Messenger of Allah made a raid upon Banu Mustaliq while they were unaware and their cattle were having a drink at the water. He killed those who fought and imprisoned others. On that very day, he captured Juwairiya bint al-Harith. Nafi' said that this tradition was related to him by Abdullah b. Umar who (himself) was among the raiding troops. Sahih Muslim 1730 a; Book 32, Hadith 1; USC-MSA web (English) reference Book 19; Hadith 4292; http://sunnah.com/muslim.
Muhammed, the role model for all Muslims.
