Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.3


O10.3

As for the first fifth that is taken from the spoils, it is divided in turn into five parts, a share each going to:

-1- the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), and after his death, to such Islamic interests as fortifying defenses on the frontiers, salaries for Islamic judges, muezzins, and the like;

-2- relatives of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) of the Bani Hashim and Bani Muttalib clans, each male receiving the share of two females;

-3- orphans who are poor;

-4- those short of money (def: h8.11);

-5- and travellers needing money (h8.18).

Bottom Line:
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on the division of spoils?
  • Why do 8:1 and 8:41 exist in the Qur’an?
  • Why does this hadith exist?

Muslim Book 019, Number 4327:
The spoils of war were not made lawful for any people before us, This is because Allah saw our weakness and humility and made them lawful for us.

It is time to pull your head out of your anal orifice, wipe the drek from your eyes, and take a clear eyed look at objective factual reality. You have been lied to; fed excrement and you swallowed it. Islam is not a religion of peace. It is not a religion. Islam is permanent war.

In the Myth vs Fact series, I showed you the relevant Qur’an verses. I showed you many of the relevant hadith. I showed you the relevant Sharia. I gave you links to those documents so that you can verify what I posted.

Ibn Kathir, in his Tafsir, which explains the meaning of the Qur’an, rolls the Qur’an & Hadith together with extreme clarity. Here, once more, is a concentrated list of the most relevant Tafsir topics. Click the links and read them all for review.

None of that is consistent with ‘religion of peace’; not the orders to fight, not the promise of world domination.
Islam is not peace, it is permanent war until we are dead or subjugated and extorted. The previous sentence contains a link to an ebook, written by an Indian radio journalist, which documents the same facts brought out in this series.

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.2


O10.2

As for personal booty, anyone who, despite resistance, kills one of the enemy or effectively incapacitates him, risking his own life thereby, is entitled to whatever he can take from the enemy, meaning as much as he can take away with him in the battle, such as a mount, clothes, weaponry, money, or other.

Bottom Line:
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ contemplate war?
  • Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on personal spoils?

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.10.1


Chapter O10.0: The Spoils of Battle

O10.1

A free male Muslim who has reached puberty and is sane is entitled to the spoils of battle when he has participated in a battle to the end of it.

After personal booty (def: o10.2), the collective spoils of the battle are divided into five parts. The first fifth is set aside (dis: o10.3), and the remaining four are distributed, one share to each infantryman and three shares to each cavalryman. From these latter four fifths also, a token payment is given at the leader’s discretion to women, children, and non-Muslim participants on the Muslim side.A combatant only takes possession of his share of the spoils at the official division. (A: Or he may choose to waive his right to it.)

Bottom Line: What need has the ‘religion of peace’ for legal rulings on the division of spoils of war?

Reliance of the Traveller, Book O.9.16


O9.16: Truces

(O: As for truces, the author does not mention them. In Sacred Law truce means a peace treaty with those hostile to Islam, involving a cessation of fighting for a specified period, whether for payment or something else. The scriptural basis for them includes such Koranic verses as:

-1- “An acquittal from Allah and His messenger…” (Koran 9:1);

-2- “If they incline towards peace, then incline towards it also” (Koran 8.61);

as well as the truce which the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made Quraysh in the year of Hudaybiya, as related by Bukhari and Muslim.

Truces are permissible, not obligatory. The only one who may effect a truce is the Muslim ruler of a region (or his representative) with a segment of the non-Muslims of the region, or the caliph (o25) (or his representative). When made with other than a portion of the non-Muslims, or when made with all of them, or with all in a particular region such as India or Asia Minor, then only the caliph (or his representative) may effect it, for it is a matter of the gravest consequence whether globally or in a given locality, and our interests must be looked after therein, which is why it is best left to the caliph under any circumstances, or to someone he delegates to see to the interests of the various regions.

There must be some interest served in making a truce other than mere preservation of the status quo.

Allah Most High says,

“So do not be faint-hearted and call for peace, when it is you who are the uppermost” (Koran 47:35).

Interests that justify making a truce are such things as Muslim weakness because of lack of members or materiel, or the hope of an enemy becoming Muslim, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce in the year Mecca was liberated with Safwan ibn Umayya for four months in hope that he would become Muslim, and he entered Islam before its time was up. If the Muslims are weak, a truce may be made for ten years if necessary, for the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) made a truce with Quraysh for that long, as is related by Abu Dawud. It is not permissible to stipulate longer than that, save by means of new truces, each of which does not exceed ten years.

The rulings of such a truce are inferable from those of the non-Muslim poll tax (def: o11); namely, that when a valid truce has been effected, no harm may be done to non-Muslims until it expires.)

O9.15

It is permissible in jihad to cut down the enemy’s trees and destroy their dwellings.


Bottom Line: It is ok to destroy the assetts which make life possible for your victims, their crops and their shelter. Why in Hell does the ‘religion of peace’ have such rulings in its canon of jurisprudence?

O9.14

When an adult male is taken captive, the caliph (def: o25) considers the interests (O: of Islam and the Muslims) and decides between the prisoner’s death, slavery, release without paying anything, or ransoming himself in exchange for money or for a Muslim captive held by the enemy.

If the prisoner becomes a Muslim (O: before the caliph chooses any of the four alternatives) then he may not be killed, and one of the other three alternatives is chosen.

Bottom Line: Why does the ‘religion of peace’ have a legal ruling on prisoners of war? Why is it so detailed?
Why does the “religion of peace” have a legal ruling on captive women & children? The incongruity stands out like a pig’s snout.

When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.
