Listen to today’s broadcast:
Please forgive the brevity of today’s post. Issues beyond our control limited what we were able to go.
The god of Muhammad was kind of like a sock puppet, he told Muhammad what Muhammad wanted. If somebody opposed him, his god told him to kill them. If his men did not want to fight, his god told him to tell his men that if they died fighting for Islam they would go to Paradise and have 72 virgins, etc.
Guess who responded best to this type of message, young men. If you didn’t die you got to share in the booty of war and if you did you got an orgy in Paradise.
Sura 2:216 “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it, but it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you and that ye love a thing which is bad for you, but Allah knoweth and ye know not.”
The successors of Muhammad were called the Rashidun Caliphs (the righteous Caliphs). Caliph simply means successor.
When Muhammad died the first successor was Abu Bakr. He reigned for 27 months. He spent most of his reign killing apostates and securing Arabia for Islam.
He killed between 40,000 and 60,000 people who tried to leave. His main accomplishment was to create fear in those who would leave the Islamic faith.
Please listen to the broadcast above to get the full story.
