Mercenary Mission
Islam was contrived for the purpose of its founder's personal emolument & empowerment through accrual of spoils & dominion through perpetual war. Three ayat in Surah Al-Anfal make this matter crystal clear. Four ahadith confirm it eyond all dou t. !"mphasis added for clarity.# 8:1. They ask you $% &uhammad ' a out the spoils of war. Say( )The spoils are for All*h and the &essenger.) So fear All*h and ad+ust all matters of difference among you, and o ey All*h and -is &essenger $&uhammad ', if you are elievers. The spoils are for Allah and &oe. how many stolen sheep, camels & dates can an impotent stone idol eat/ -ow many captured women can it rape/ 8:41. And know that whatever of war- ooty that you may gain, verily one-fifth $012th' of it is assigned to All*h, and to the &essenger, and to the near relatives !of the &essenger $&uhammad '#, $and also' the orphans, Al-&as*kin $the poor' and the wayfarer, if you have elieved in All*h and in that which 3e sent down to %ur slave $&uhammad ' on the 4ay of criterion $ etween right and wrong', the 4ay when the two forces met $the attle of 5adr' - And All*h is A le to do all things. 8:67. It is not for a 6rophet that he should have prisoners of war $and free them with ransom' until he had made a great slaughter $among his enemies' in the land. You desire the good of this world $i.e. the money of ransom for freeing the captives', ut All*h desires $for you' the -ereafter. And All*h is All-&ighty, All-3ise. Allah wants genocide( )great slaughter), &oe wants ransom money. %ne ahadith omitted from 7han's translation of Sahih 5ukhari speaks volumes a out &oe's arrogance & avarice, I 8uote from Aisha 5ewley's translation. Bukhari Ch 61 # 7!6: ...It is mentioned from I n '9mar from the 6rophet, may Allah less him and grant him peace, )&y provision has een placed under the shadow of my spear, and a asement and humility have een placed on the one who diso eys my command. &oe got his income with his spear( y raiding camel caravans and :ewish settlements. ;ater we will see &oe's 'command' and the threat he made in con+unction with it. Allah gave &oe a special privilege not given to anyone else( accrual of spoils. <. "he #ooty has #een made $alal %lawful& for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else #efore me' !(ahih Bukhari 1'7'))1# (ahih Muslim Book *1+, -um#er 4) 7( "he s.oils of war were not made lawful for any .eo.le #efore us, "his is #ecause /llah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us. Allah was very generous( he gave &oe the keys to the treasures of the world and he made &oe wealthy through con8uests.

(ahih Bukhari 0olume 4, Book ! , -um#er =arrated A u -uraira(


Allah's Apostle said, )I have een sent with the shortest e>pressions earing the widest meanings, and 1 ha2e #een made 2ictorious with terror $cast in the hearts of the enemy', and while 1 was, the keys of the treasures of the world were #rought to me and .ut in my hand') A u -uraira added( Allah's Apostle has left the world and now you, people, are ringing out those treasures $i.e. the 6rophet did not enefit y them'. (ahih Bukhari 0olume ), Book )7, -um#er 4+!( =arrated A u -uraira( 3henever a dead man in de t was rought to Allah's Apostle he would ask, )-as he left anything to repay his de t/) If he was informed that he had left something to repay his de ts, he would offer his funeral prayer, otherwise he would tell the &uslims to offer their friend's funeral prayer. 3hen /llah made the 4ro.het wealthy through con5uests, he said, )I am more rightful than other elievers to e the guardian of the elievers, so if a &uslim dies while in de t, I am responsi le for the repayment of his de t, and whoever leaves wealth $after his death' it will elong to his heirs. )


sla# is aggressively violent, by design% irreparably. &uote sla#ic law. As for subsequent times, there are two possible states in respect to non-Muslims.The first is when they are in their own countries, in which case jihad (def: o9.8) is a communal obligation, and this is what our author is speaking of when he says, Jihad is a communal obligation, meaning upon the Muslims each year.[6eliance of the "ra2eller, Book 7+'1]

Jihad is something Muslims must do against non-Muslims every year. Exactly what is it?
Chapter O9.0: Jihad (O: Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.

What is its practical application?

O9.8: The Objectives of Jihad The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians O9.9 The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book,

%"***. Verily, Allh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allhs Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed.
