Moe Was A Profiteer, Not A Prophet!



The Profit said "My provision is placed under the shade of my spear".  If you look that up in Fath al-Bari, you will confirm the obvious: Moe got his $ by plunder.  The same fact is evident in the footnote  to page 108 of Sahih Bukhari's fourth volume.

     That saying is in the printed book, but it is not included in the USC-MSA database at CMJE or Quran Explorer. It is only provided in Arabic at sunnah.com.  Aisha Bewley did not Bowdlerize it.

spears.

Narrated Ibn 'Umar that the Prophet
said, "My livelihood is under the shade of my
spear ,(1) and he who disobeys my orders will
be humiliated by paying Jizya •,,(2).
(1) (Ch. 88) "Under the shade of my spear" means, from war booty.

The background info:
      Moe married a wealthy widow 20 years his senior. She had several adult children. Moe ran her camel caravan. When she died and her estate was distriuted, Moe had no visible means of support, reduced to poverty, he begged and sucked date stones. In 623, he attempted his first caravan raid.

     Ibn Khaldun, in Muquaddimah, on page 199 of the pdf version, exposes Arab culture, and thus, Moe.

The139 reason for this is that (the Arabs) are a savage nation, fully accustomed to savagery and the things that cause it. Savagery has become their character and nature. They enjoy it, because it means freedom from authority and no subservience to leadership. Such a natural disposition is the negation and antithesisof civilization. All the customary activities of the Arabs lead to travel andmovement. This is the antithesis and negation of stationariness, which produces civilization. For instance, the Arabs need stones to set them up as supports for their cooking pots. So, they take them from buildings which they tear down to get thestones, and use them for that purpose. Wood, too, is needed by them for props fortheir tents and for use as tent poles for their dwellings. So, they tear down roofs toget the wood for that purpose. The very nature of their existence is the negation of building, which is the basis of civilization. This is the case with them quitegenerally.
Furthermore, it is their nature to plunder whatever other people possess.Their sustenance lies wherever the shadow of their lances falls. They recognize no limit in taking the possessions of other people. Whenever their eyes fall upon someproperty, furnishings, or utensils, they take it. When they acquire superiority androyal authority, they have complete power to plunder (as they please). There nolonger exists any political (power) to protect property, and civilization is ruined. ...

     Is this money quote from that page a mere coincidence???
Their sustenance lies wherever the shadow of their lances falls.
     Ibn Kathir explained Surah At-Taubah 9.29, which establishes Jihad against Christians and collection of Jizya, in volume 4 of his Sira.  [Click image to enlarge.] Jizya was a substitute for lost tourist revenue!  Allah's good pleasure my ass!  It's all about the loot!!
