Servant of Allah, in your long list of good muslim qualities you quoted:

71. To ensure that one's income is pure.

But your prophet himself never earned a day of bread by honest hard work after he became a muslim. In Mecca he lived on his wife's money and spent time in a cave talking to angels . In Madina he earned his bread by terrorirism and looted carvans and peaceful communities for booty .
I do not know what you mean by pure income. If robbing looting and pillaging is pure income, then please disregard my post.

Please read the following hadiths:


Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
The apostle said, "I have been sent with the shortest expressions bearing the widest meanings, and I have been made victorious with terror

SAHIH BUKHARI, VOL 4 CHAPTER 88
Narrated Ibn 'Umar: The Prophet said, "MY LIVELIHOOD IS UNDER THE SHADE OF MY SPEAR, FROM WAR BOOTY, AND HE WHO DISOBEYS MY ORDERS WILL BE HUMILIATED BY PAYING JIZYA TAX."

(this hadith has been removed from usc/MSA website. It is in the original Mohasin Khan translation)


Bukhari vol 3,Book46, No. 717

"Narrated Ibn Aun:

Prophet had suddenly attacked Bani Mustaliq without warning while they were heedless and their cattle were being watered at the places of water. Their fighting men were killed and their women and children were taken as captives; the Prophet got Juwairiya on that day.

Bukhari Vol. 5, Bk 59, No. 512

Narrated Anas:

The Prophet offered the Fajr Prayer near Khaibar when it was still dark and then said, "Allahu-Akbar! Khaibar is destroyed, for whenever we approach a (hostile) nation (to fight), then evil will be the morning for those who have been warned." Then the inhabitants of Khaibar came out running on the roads. The Prophet had their warriors killed, their offspring and woman taken as captives. Safiya was amongst the captives, She first came in the share of Dahya Alkali but later on she belonged to the Prophet .

"Sirat e Rasulullah" by Ishaq, pge 464

After 800-900 male adults of Bani Quraiza were beheaded in batches, and thrown in trenches dug in Madina, the apostle divided their property, wives and children as booty. . He took Rayhana d. Amr b. Khunafa for himself.
