Answer: Mohammad represented the equivalent to government at that time.

Really? so a Muslim governent is in the habit of looting what belongs to infidels. Why am I not surpirsed? Then why would your Allah also get part of the loot? And how can you get to your Allah his share of the loot collected by his minions in the past 1400 years? Do you have his address?

>What ever he received was going into the treasurey that was used to help the poor, civil services or to prepare the army if needed so.How else would a goverment work.Remember this was 1400 years ago.An attempt to put together a system, build a country...etc. Mohammad did not personally benefit from this.He lived a simple life.Nothing extravagazant! There's plenty of evidence to that.

But our dear Ahmad why is the looting and wars when your Allah can change the hearts of us infidels and we can all become Muslims. Unless your Allah is not omnipotent. So is your Allah not omnipotent?And where does it say in the Qur'an that the loot will go to the civil services?Let me help you: you are making things up

>Issue # 2: You said:

And did you ever read Waqidi al-Maghazi? It seems that Muhammad was no more than an Arabian warlord and caravan raider who loved looting what belonged to others.

>Answer: Mohammad PBU did raid caravans but what was the reason?

Oh I'm waiting for this one. Then he was a caravan raider and an Arabian warlord. See? logic can be simple

>He got persucuted by the quraish tribe, kicked out with no belongings.Quraishe basically took everything he and his followers owned.

So this is your justification for Muhammad being a caravan raider and an Arabian warlord? are you for real? It seems that Ghandi was much more effective than Muhammad the caravan raider and the Arabian warlord.

>What would anyone do in that circumstance?

Looting is a crime back then and now. Shame on you for justifying the absurd

>I would defend myself.He raided quraish caravans and gave them a hard time.If Mohammad would have asked me to do anyhting else besides defending myself I would not have beleived in him.Islam teaches that Allah does not ask you to do or not do what does not agree with common sense.

So is qatil fi sabeel Allah and not befriending Christians and Jews or asking you to iqtoloo al-mushrikeen make any sense? And why do you live among Christians and Jews here in the US?

>Lastly, Discussions should be made in a respectable fashion without any sarcasm! Please, if you cannot stick to that level of discussion then I will not waste my time responding to your blogs.

Stop posting drivel and this is my answer and realize that you do not know any arabic and Islam is the religion of the arabs and you ain't no Arab. Why is this so difficult for you to understand?
