  • Are there any lectures on Muhammad as a merchant/trader?

    Documented History of Muhammad was that he as a merchant/trader for his first 40 years of life and never was religious to any extent, but then he wrote the Qur'an and then just moves into political power. So what is the rest of the story? Historical documents and writings also say he ruled by force and bloodshed, but yet he was perfect in some say. Just curious if there are any lectures on this. Would like to hear them.

    muhammad :saw: was illiterate, he could not read or write. he did not write the Quran. the Quran is a revelation from Allah, revealed through the angel Gabriel to Muhammad. In his early life he was known for his honestly, and not indulging in sin, and he did not worship idols, as the ppl of the tribes around him did. he did not rule by force, and bloodshed. you cannot force anyone to believe in God, because then it wouldn't be a true belief, it would be a false statement on the lips only.

    I would recommend u read "the sealed nectar " its available from islamic bookstores online.

    "O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah, even as against yourselves, or your parents, or your kin, and whether it be (against) rich or poor: for Allah can best protect both. Follow not the lusts (of your hearts), lest you swerve, and if you distort (justice) or decline to do justice, verily Allah is well-acquainted with all that you do." [An-Nisa 4:135]

    The Prophet :saw: said:

    "Whosoever leaves off obedience and separates from the Jamaa'ah and dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah. Whoever fights under the banner of the blind, becoming angry for 'asabiyyah (nationalism/tribalism/partisanship) or calling to 'asabiyyah, or assisting 'asabiyyah, then dies, he dies a death of jaahiliyyah."

    Narrated 'Abdullah:

    The Prophet, said, "Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." sahih bukhari


    "Creeping upon you is the diseases of those people before you: envy and hatred. And hatred is the thing that shaves. I do not say it shaves the hair but it shaves the religion!

    By the One in whose Hand is my soul, you will not enter paradise until you believe, and you will not believe until you love one another. Certainly, let me inform you of that which may establish such things: spread the greetings and peace among yourselves."

    [Recorded by Imam Ahmad and Al-Tirmidhi]
