Reader comment on item: The Middle East's Tribal Affliction
in response to reader comment: response to Ali

Submitted by Ali Khalaf (United States), Feb 4, 2008 at 12:50

Ali: Apparently you have not read Quran with context. of hadiths and siras. Mohammed became the richest man in arabia from a very poor state and gained many young and best looking wives, concubies and captured women. When he was not a prophet he managed to marry just one woman 15 years senior in age..

PROPHETIC PERKS

Prophet had better perks than any of the previous prophets due to his high position..

UNLIMITED NUMBER OF WIVES AND SLAVE GIRLS / CAPTURED WOMEN

33.50 O Prophet (Muhammad SAW)! Verily, We have made lawful to you your wives, and those (captives or slaves) whom your right hand possesses - whom Allah has given to you.,.

TWENTY PERCENT CUT IN THE BOOTY (IF VIOLENCE WAS INVOLVED)

Prophet was allowed 20% cut from the booty robbed from every raid (on infidels), including captured women.

8.41 and know that whenever ye seize anything as a spoil and booty, a fifth (20%) belongs to Allah and His Apostle.

100% OF BOOTY WAS MO'S IF NO VIOLENCE WAS INVOLVED

However if the victims surrendered without any fight, all the booty belonged to the prophet.

59.6 Allah gave all the booty (Fai') to His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) if the unbelievers surrendered without fight.

USE OF ANGELS FOR RAIDS

As a special prophetic perk, Prophet was allowed to call in for the help of angels...

8.9 : Remember you asked for the assistance of your Lord, and He answered you: "I will assist you with a thousand of the angels, ranks on ranks."

GREAT WEALTH

Proohet Mohammed's prophetic perk of 20% booty from every raid made him the richest man in Arabia .

93.8 Allah found you poor, he made you rich .

33.27 He gave you their land, and their dwellings,

I am not even quoting hadiths which talk in details all the above.
