The Hadith series is based on Bill Warner’s book The Political Traditions of Mohammed – The Hadith for Unbelievers. It is a compilation of all the Hadith (Traditions) related to non-Muslims. The Political Traditions of Mohammed contains both sets of Islamic ethics – one for the Muslim and one for the unbelievers.
Chapter 1 Ethics
POSITION TOWARD OTHER RELIGIONS
Well before Mohammed, since the most ancient days, Mecca had been a center of religious tolerance. Many religions used Mecca as a pilgrim site. The Kabah was a temple of every known religion, including Christianity. This Sunna occurred after Mohammed conquered Mecca.
B1,8,365 On the Day of Nahr, Abu Bakr dispatched Ali and others to Mecca to make a public declaration: “After this year no Kafir may make a pilgrimage to Mecca to worship, and the ancient rituals performed around the Kabah are now forbidden.”
