In publishing this paintings, my leader item is to take away the overall and faulty effect from the minds of ecu and Christian writers relating to Islam, that Mohammad waged wars of conquest, extirpation, in addition to of proselytizing opposed to the Koreish, different Arab tribes, the Jews, and Christians; that he held the Koran in a single hand and the scimitar within the different, and forced humans to think in his undertaking. i've got endeavoured during this publication, i think on enough grounds, to teach that neither the wars of Mohammad have been offensive, nor did he by any means use strength or compulsion within the subject of trust. ** [C:\Users\Microsoft\Documents\Calibre Library]

Example text

The time of pilgrimage alone afforded Mohammad a wider field. He preached against idolatry at the fairs and assemblages of the pilgrims[38]. After his release from imprisonment in the tenth year of his mission, he went to preach at Tàyif, but was ignominiously expelled the city[39]. On his return to Mecca he converted a party of the tribe of Jinn[40] (not Genii according to the vulgar notion)[41] at Nakhla. After his return from Tàyif he preached to an audience of six or seven persons from Medina, who believed and spread Islam there.

Sir W. Muir writes:— Sir W. Muir quoted. "Persecution, though it may sometimes have deterred the timid from joining his ranks, was eventually of unquestionable service to Mahomet. ' Mohammad did repel the force of his enemies when it was quite necessary for the Moslem self-preservation and protection, but he never compelled any of his enemies or unbelievers, whether a single individual, or a body of men, or a whole tribe, to believe in him. The Koran and history contradict such an allegation. The Koran everywhere in the Meccan and Medinite Suras preaches complete toleration of every religion.

Now I shall dispense with the Koreish and refer to the wars of other enemies of the early Moslems. There is only one war of the Arab tribes other than the Koreish noticed in the Koran, and that is the battle of Honain. In this war the Sakifites were the aggressors. The battle of Muraisia is not noticed in the Koran, but it is stated by biographers that information of a new project against him after the defeat at Ohad in the direction of Mecca, and the Bani Mustalik's raising fresh forces with a view of joining the Koreish in the threatened attack of Medina having reached Mohammad, he resolved by a bold attempt to prevent their design.
