Reading the Koran 123

This is another excerpt from Bill Warner’s book Abridged Koran where the verses of Koran are arranged in their chronological order and provided with facts from prophet Muhammad’s life, giving context for them.

CHAPTER 21 MOHAMMED’S LAST YEAR (end of chapter)

A SUMMARY OF MOHAMMED’S ARMED EVENTS

In a nine year period Mohammed personally attended twenty-seven raids. There were thirty-eight other battles and expeditions. This is a total of sixty-five armed events, not including assassinations and executions, for an average of one armed event every seven weeks.

MOHAMMED’S DEATH

When Mohammed spoke to Aisha, his favorite wife, He complained of a headache. Mohammed said, “No, Aisha, Oh my head. Would it distress you if you were to die before me so that I might wrap you in your shroud and pray over you?” Aisha said, “I think that if you did that, that after you returned to the house you would simply spend the night with one of your other wives.” But the pain became worse and he took his final illness in the house of Aisha.

Mohammed weakened and was in a great deal of pain. Later he died with his head in Aisha’s lap. His final words were the perfect summation of Islam, political action based upon religion.

B4, 52, 288 Mohammed said, “There should be no other religions besides Islam in Arabia” and that the money should be continued to be paid to influence the foreign unbeliever ambassadors.

Mohammed was buried beneath his bed. The bed was removed and a grave was dug where the bed had stood.
