Description

About the Book

 

The Battlefields of the Prophet Muhammad-In this book the author has endeavoured to present a Military history of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) under the title of his treatise. “The Battlefields of the Prophet Muhammad”. To make it more comprehensive he has added maps, illustrations and sketches about the wars in it.

 

Foreword

 

After almost a decade, when a new edition is being printed, I have taken the liberty of making several corrections and additions, in the light of my latest knowledge-God Almighty alone is Omniscient-and I thank both the editor and the m. of readers for this publication.

 

It is sad to note that, more than anything else, science has become the victim of the material prosperity of human beings, science is getting less and less accessible to the student owing to costs of printing and posting getting dearer and dearer; and as ever, the real and most deserving student remains in the poorest of the social classes.

 

Anyhow one of the reasons of the renewal of the publication of this work is, on the one hand, the ever more virulent attacks on the part of some of the ignorant sections of humanity against the life of the Prophet of Islam, and, on the other, the demand of the justice-loving sections who want to know the truth about the subject.

 

Without in the least pretending to have succeeded in replying to the ones and satisfying the others, I have contributed my mite, seeking nothing but the truth, in as objective a manner as is possible to me, basing me on the best of the classical sources.

 

It may be permitted to reply by the way to a question which has sometimes been asked and its very nature is misleading the unthinking minds, viz. Should a prophet fight? ‘The history of war in human society is a vast subject. Let us limit ourself here to the barest minimum. The Hindu law does not proscribe it. The Old Testament is essentially the description of the wars waged by prophets Moses downwards. It cannot be asserted that Jesus Christ has forbidden war. For St Luke (19/27) reports a saying of Jesus: “But those mine enemies, which would not that I shall reign over them, bring hither and slay them before me” That it is to be taken in its literal sense is the opinion of even such an authority as St Paul (cf I Corintians 15/25): “For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet” Another saying of Jesus (et Matthew 10/34) is: “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth; I am come not to send peace, but a sword”. Even the parable reported by Mark 12/1-9 and Luke 20/9-16 clearly allows war in the last report against the incorrigible oppressors. Further, the Crusades, which were organized by Popes were the “holy wars” of the Christians. This on the one hand. On the other, if war were left to lay commanders, there is less hope of a humane conduct during a war than is expected from a prophet whose very acts are controlled by Divine inspiration. A prophet as a commander of the army is more in the interest of humanity than even the greatest military genius from among lay men. We shall see the difference in the following pages.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.

This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
