"Caravan raiding was an old Arabian tradition?” What
a lame excuse! I already discussed this moral relativistic cop-out. Even if
raiding was an Arab “tradition”, which is ludicrous, would this justify one
who claims to be a prophet of God and the "best of the creation" to
follow that evil tradition? The Muslims who wrote this in Wikipedia want to make looting sound like a folk
festival. “Tradition!?”... What an innovative way to describe a crime! If
stealing was a “tradition”, why Muhammad was so upset when others stole
something from him? Why he prohibited his followers from stealing the booty? The
booty (the stolen property of the non-Muslims) was okay, but stealing from that
stolen loot warranted hellfire!? This was the typical moral relativistic
reasoning of Muhammad and consequently of his benighted followers.
Wikipedia is controlled by cyber jihadis who gang up
together to kill the truth. It is virtually impossible to write anything
truthful in that encyclopedia on Islam. Friends of FFI are now in the process of
creating an exclusive Wiki on Islam, where everyone would be free to edit but we
will not allow bullishness and cyber terrorism of a bunch of jihadis.
scholars will add that this was a matter of survival for the Muslims as
well. They owned no land in
and if they did not raid, they would have to live on charity and
whatever wage labor they could find.
Who are those "secular scholars"? Is he by any
chance talking about the useful idiots such as Noam Chomsky, Karen Armstrong and
Just see how ridiculous the Wikipedia has become when it comes to Islam.
What an excuse! Since Muslims did not own lands, they
had to engage in ethnic cleansing of the Jews and confiscate theirs.
Ah, what a logical and satisfactory response! How could I have missed this
What about the other places? Muhammad and his thugs raided
many cities and villages that were not even close to
and had nothing to do with Muslims. Their only sin was that they were wealthy
and Muslims needed their money.
Should all those who do not have land and money raid those
who have, kill them and loot them to survive? Or is this "divine"
teaching only for Muslims? As shocking as it is, this is exactly how Muslims
think and that is why they are in
and in the West. They think the West belongs to them. If they succeed in their
dream, they will do with the non-Muslims what Muhammad and his gangsters did to
the non-Muslims of their time. It would be foolish not to pay attention to what
Muslims say. All you have to do is to listen to them. They want your countries
and they are ready to kill you for that. If not you, your children will pay with
their lives if you do not heed to what they say. Don’t worry about your
grandchildren because if Muslims are not stopped now, you may not have any.

Topics and their Interconnection
This portion deals with the problems of
the "Spoils of War". The Quran says that these are not the
spoils of war but the "Bounties of Allah" and proves this by
showing that the victory at Badr (and in all other battles, too,) was
won by His succour and not by the efforts of the Muslims. It also
declares (in v. 40) that the war aim of the Muslims should be to
eliminate all unfavourable conditions for the establishment of Islam and
not to gain spoils. Moreover, the spoils, being the bounties of God,
belong to Allah and His Messenger and they alone are entitled to
allocate them. Then after conditioning the Muslims to accept these
things, the different shares have been allocated in v. 41. 1 - 41
What did I tell you? All you have to do is to listen to
Muslims. What Muslims steal from you is not spoils of war. It is the “Bounties
of Allah”. It is rightfully theirs. Not only they do not feel
remorse, they will actually thank their devil Allah for that bounty happily with no pangs of conscience.
Why this Allah does not give his bounties to his servants
through science, industry, technology and progress? Why this bounty should
always come to them as stolen property from non-Muslims? This question
does not even occur to Muslims. Why? It is because they have no conscience.
Those who have, do no longer call themselves by this shameful name.

of Public Treasury
revenue is the most important tool for providing social security to a
nation. During the Caliphate of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab, the income of
the treasury department had immensely increased due to his wise and
strict administrative policies. Zakah (religious obligation on a Muslim
to pay 2½% from his/her wealth), ‘ushr (religious tax on agricultural
land), Sadaqah (spending for the pleasure of Allah), jizyah (tax on the
non-Muslims for providing security) and khums (the one-fifth of the
spoils of war) were credited to the treasury for the use of the Muslims
at large. For example, after the battles of Yarmouk and Qãdisiyyah,
the Muslims won heavy spoils. The coffers at Madinah al-Munawwarah
became full to the brink.
aim of the Islamic social security system is to fulfil every possible
human need. These needs can broadly be classified into two categories:
(1) Primary needs i.e., food, clothing, housing and necessary medical
care, and (2) Secondary needs i.e., education, matrimony, old age
benefits and social services etc.
'Umar ibn al-Khattab used Social Security
· To provide Food during serious
drought or famines to the people according to the family size.
· For the poor and disabled
· To provide education to the
· To finance marriages of the
unmarried poor or needy persons.
· To grant old age benefits
and in old age investment
· To give loans for

· To pay off the debts of
persons under obligation
· As Social Insurance to
pay blood money of convicts in involuntary homicide
· To pay stipends to
widows, married and unmarried women, young men and the immigrants.
Yep! You are the social security for the Muslims! Got
This site says “During the Caliphate of ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab,
the income of the treasury department had immensely increased."
How did it increase? Did Umar encourage agriculture, art,
industry, commerce? Where did this wealth come from? It was through looting of
course. The writer is honest enough to say: "the
battles of Yarmouk and Qãdisiyyah, the Muslims won heavy spoils. The coffers at
Madinah al-Munawwarah became full to the brink."
and acknowledges that this wealth "came from
jizyah (tax on the non-Muslims for providing security) and khums (the one-fifth
of the spoils of war).
As long as looting continued Muslims prospered but as
soon as they were defeated and their conquest stopped, so ebbed their so called
What security Muslims provide for non-Muslims? The same
kind of security that the Mafia gangsters used to provide for the businesses
during the 1930s. Jizya is extortion fee. Non-Muslims must work and maintain
the Muslims or face death. See this hadith:
According to the saying of the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him):
Allah has placed truth upon Umar's tongue and heart. He fixed stipends for
Muslims, and provided protection for the people of other religions by levying Jizya
(poll-tax) on them, deducting no fifth from it, nor taking it as booty.[ Sunan
Abu Dawud 19.2955]
The Westerners should know that for Muslims, the welfare that they
collect, is the Jizya that you are supposed to pay. They are not
grateful at all and they have no intention to find a work and stop collecting this
Jizya which is rightfully theirs. However the amount is not enough. They must
receive most of the money that you make. Their houses must be bigger and better
than yours. As long as this is not so, they feel oppressed and will fight you to
end this oppression.
