Glimpses from the life of Prophet Mohammad, Peace be on him, so show how he used his "Swords of Mercy. Truth, Wisdom and Pardon" on his bitterest enemies which conquered them for ever.



More than fifty examples are presented from his life and another twelve on those on which no other sword except the Sword of Steel was to be used. These will dispel the picture which enemies of Islam pose of prophet that he gave his opponents only two choices "Islam or Die"

Which“Sword”the ProphetUsedAgainsthis enemies?
 
Preface
All praise be to Allah the Creator and Cherisher of the Universe and His Peace andBlessings be on his Slave and Servant Prophet Mohammad and family of prophetMohammad and all companions of prophet Mohammad, After that:If we listen to enemies of Islam, the picture they present of our prophet is like one“Ruthless man, sitting on a throne, with unsheathed sword in his hands, his enemies are brought to him, one by one, he gives them only two choices, Islam or die”.Faced with naked sword and death in front of them, most of his enemies (cowardly bynature) “really had no choice but to become Muslims”. Using his sword and threats, he browbeaten his enemies into submission, and those who showed even the least resistancewere put to death in cold blood.(Apart from being a fiction, was our prophet the "first one" to invent this ruthless tactic?Were not many before tried it and failed? How come our prophet became so successfulthat those whom he forced to convert remained Muslims after the sword was removedfrom their head?)But when we refer to the factual reports of the era, the picture is totally different.Every one knows that Prophet Mohammad was born in Makkah, though being born in aHigh Clan of Makkan tribe, and possessing a very likeable personality and a man knownfor his honesty and truth, he did not possessed any political or monetary power.When he started his mission, he was in absolute minority of one in Makkah; he had noteven a single follower. When he started his mission, he and his immediate followers hadto face a lot of hardship at the hands of Makkan people.There is not a single Muslim from Early or late Makkan period, who did not had to face persecution and extreme torture at the hands of Makkan people.If he was to use “sword” as a means of conversion, how could he won those earlyconverts in Makkah period? Becoming Muslim in those days was putting your head onthe block so to say.Muslims were persecuted and physically tortured to such a degree that, many had to leavetheir birthplace and take refuge in the country of Abyssinia, a feature which was strangefor a “Clan based society” of Arabia of those days.Some people say, that prophet did not use force in Makkah period, but once he got some power in Medina, he started using force and torture and threat to get new converts.
 
People fail to realize that being Muslim in Early Medina period also was no lessdangerous, Medina was a very small city and it was engulfed by Non Muslims in everydirection. There was danger of outside attacks at any time, and in the battle fields,Muslim armies were always outnumbered by their enemies.How could prophet then rely on support from that “forced Muslims”, they would ditchhim at critical situations and lead to defeat of Muslims.After saying all this, I conceded that prophet did have “Many Swords” which he used to“Slay his enemies” and “Make them his slaves for ever”!! Let us see, how many swordshad he:1. Sword of Truth (The Most Potent of All).2. Sword of Reason and Logic.3. Sword of Patience and Perseverance.4. Sword of Compassion and Forgiveness.5. Sword of Open-handedness and Charity.6. Sword of Appreciation and Acknowledgement.7. Sword of Equity and Justice.8. And finally Sword of Steel, which he used very sparingly.Selecting and using proper sword at proper time, the Prophet was so successful in“Slaying and Capturing his bitterest enemies”.I have selected a few cases from that period to prove my point and I will present them before our “Friends” on this thread, whose only purpose is to malign the Noble Character of our prophet.And to complete the story I have selected some cases where No other Sword waseffective so the prophet had to use the sword of steel.!!There are fifty cases in the first list and 12 cases in the second list. I have picked up thesecases mostly from the book of "Companions of the Prophet" written by Abu TalibHashmi of Pakistan and biographies of prophet written by Qadhi Sulaiman Mansoorpuri.This list is not exhaustive, many more cases of mercy of prophet and his use of humannature and how to use it properly could be found if we study Islamic literature of theearliest period.
