in response to reader comment: To Dhimmi: People of Makkah call Mohammad (May peace and blessing on him) "honest" and "truthful".

In the so called Medina period we have Muhammad's biography available under the tilte: al-Maghazi by Waqidi

Now the word al-Maghazi means the invasions! can you imagine a man of God whose biography is available under the title: the invasions?

Mother Teresa or the Buddha or the Christ were also "honest" and "truthful" just like Abul Qasim aka Muhammad but I can assure our dear Syed that their biographies will never have the tile of "the invasions"

As for Muhammad like I said: he was a caravan raider and an Arabian warlord

And no jihad cannot be the wish of a rational God.
